A Short Story About A Creature Named Wood Golem


Wood Golem


Deep in a forest where time stands still,
The Wood Golems lurk against their own will.

Endowed with life by some magical curse,
Then ripped from the ground by a noose made it worse.

Wandering restless and instilling fear,
They aren’t quite certain just why they’re here.

They hide in the fog and emit chilling grunts;
They’ll devour the hearts of lost folk they confront.

They do not know better; so why blame the creeps
When all they really want is to go back to sleep?

– 2010

Mindless and sinister, the Wood Golems are a major antagonist to the residents of Tenebrae Manor. Despite their cumbersome movement and awkward appearance, they are deadly when given a chance and parasitic to boot – the Wood Golems have been vastly increasing in number, threatening to overrun Tenebrae Manor. If left uninhibited, it won’t be long until the manor is destroyed beyond repair and left no more discernable than the ocean of trees that surround it.
