The “Misgivings” is the local name for Foxglove Manor. A region shunned by locals for years as a place of shadowy menace, bad luck and haunts. No one travels the road to the Misgivings today.
Foxglove Manor is over 80 years old, and has been the seat of the Foxglove family the whole time. Some sort of tragedy struck the family a few decades ago, and no one’s lived there since. Common rumor holds that the place is haunted.
The Varisians seem to have named the place “Misgivings”. It certainly has a bad reputation – sighting of strange lights in the attic windows, muffled sounds of screaming from above and below, and even rumors of a huge, bat-winged devil living in the caves below the manor are a but a few of the tales told about the place.
The Foxglove family lived there as recently as 2 decades ago, but then a fire burned down the servants’ building, Cyralie Foxglove was found dead – burnt and dashed on the the rocks below the cliffs behind the house – and Traver Foxglove was found in his bedroom, dead by his own hand. The children, including young Aldern Foxglove, we sent away to be raised in Korvosa by distant relations.
Aldern Foxglove recently returned to live in the manor, but he had a hell of a time hiring locals to aid him in the reconstruction and repair of the old building. Until Aldern moved back in, the place was cared for a by a man named Rogor Craesby (a retired innkeeper who lost an ear in a bar fight many years ago) who came in 3 days a week from Sandpoint to air the place out, check for squatters and make minor repairs.
