Once upon a dark moon, in the not-so-distant past, a coven of secretive magicians crafted ritualistic headgear in an attempt to govern the powers of nature. Little is known of the specifics of the ritual they participated in, but witnesses say that the wise men and women ventured out into the dark woods late at night, and none returned. Later, six horned headbands were uncovered from a clearing, with no other sign left of the coven. From time to time hunters in the woods report tales of a herd of deer that watches them with oddly human eyes, always from just beyond range of their weapons.
