Swords of Valor
Otis is known all around Crystal Lake for the phenomenal scarecrows that he makes. His homestead is a modest farm overlooking Fogwell that used to be plagued by the avian pests. No more. His artistry in fashioning scarecrows has enable him to retire from active farming and devote his time to filling custom orders. His creations seem to move on their own, special carvings in the heads and bodies channel wind and create terrifying sounds and the eyes… oh…the eyes.
Such is the wonder of his yard of scarecrows that it has become a rite of passage to venture inside in the blackness of night. Few children manage to do so…. and Otis does not appreciate their attention. Neither does Boo, his hunting dog.
