Hags are misanthropic and spiteful crones that love nothing better than to be left alone to their devices, and to torture and curse those that refuse to do so. Children are taught from a young age not to intrude on a Hag’s domain and leave the deep dark forests well enough alone. Those that disobey rarely make it back, and the unlucky few that walk trembling out of the forest are never the same again.

They say a Hag can steal your luck, if she doesn’t simply eat you alive, leaving you a cursed life of misfortune and ruin. The only way to undo this, and to best a Hag in general, should you be unlucky enough to encounter one, is to offer her the one thing she cannot refuse. What this may be differs for each crone, but every one of them has a certain something that she will move heaven and earth (and often hell too) to obtain. Promise her what she wants and she will do anything you need.
