The Downbad Marsh is a marshy section of wetlands in Holly Shores. It consists largely of vernal pools, also called vernal ponds or ephemeral pools. A lot of big words there but essentially these are seasonal pools of water that provide a habitat for a distinctive set of plants and animals. They are usually devoid of fish, and thus allow the safe development of natal amphibian and insect species that are typically unable to withstand predation by fish. In other words, lots of freaky stuff grew up here because there be no fishies in this here marsh. But what it does have is a very particular set of frogs; frogs that grew up here over a very long time period. Frogs that make this marsh a nightmare for people like you. If you turn around now that'll be the end of it. They will not look for you, they will not pursue you, but if you don't, they will look for you, they will find you, and they will kill you.
