Named after the French mercenary who first saw it, Ratez’s Glow manifests as an orb not unlike a will o’ the wisp. It can be found in the darkest and most dismal parts of the L’Enfant bog in groups of 2-12.

The Glow seems to ignore those who happen upon it, unless they bring attention to themselves by approaching too closely. Within ten feet, the Glow will begin to seek and follow those it encounters. If it catches them, it vanishes, and the victim will immediately die of a massive heart attack. Travelers report that, when the body is allowed to remain where it fell will sprout strange glowing mushrooms with the same unearthly hue.
