The Crone is a figure of fear for both the barbarians and the people of Emberhome. She seems to appear in moments of great strife and offer solutions that even the more violent members of society fear to enact. There’s something about her that feels “wrong” to most, and her followers tend to keep their worship secret.
Despite the sense of dread she inspires, there are many who do look to the Crone for assistance. Namely, her skill at herbalism and medicine means many will brave her company to ensure a successful pregnancy or bone-setting. The more pragmatic members of society recognize the Crone’s contributions and pay her what she is due.
The Crone could care less for the adoration and respect of others, prefering to be left alone. However, she seems to carry a small measure of responsibility with her, and will teach those who approach her with respect. Her domains include Plants, Evil, and Magic. Her most fervent follows employ the scourge as the Crone’s favored weapon.
