This is the story of a satyr named Shiades. We crossed over from the Feywild to the Material Plane by accident trying to follow the sound of a flute he had never heard before. It turned out it was a lumberjack playing it. Shiades was stuck with no easy way to return so he tried to make the best of it. What he thought was a basic knowledge of botany and herbs turned out to make him an expert apothecary among humanoid settlements so he stuck to that and made a life bartering medicines and ointments. Shiades is not used to large groups of people. He prefers the contemplative solitude of the forests and the sounds of nature. He grows herbs and plants in an underground garden in a cave he found.
A month ago, he tripped on a weed by accident and dropped a growth potion on some plants. The plants grew rapidly and merged into a strange shrubby life form. It grew thorny tentacles and became aggressive. Now Shiades cannot control the growth of the plant monster and might lose his whole garden to it. Shiades moved temporarily to the closest human settlement to look for help. He cannot handle this problem alone.
