1: Spirits. Maskwitches of Forgotten Doggerland contains an extensive set of resources for naming spirits, the natural enemies of the Maskwitches. Using these resources I discovered this spirit is named The Creeper-Chewer. Be grateful that the dice did not roll up The Howling Penis Grinder, who is a much-feared spirit. You’re laughing now, but wait until you’re trying to light a fire at midnight in a freezing brackish fen while the Howling Penis Grinder promises, in a very loud voice, to kill you if you look at him out of the front of your eyes.

4: The people of Forgotten Doggerland have dark skin, dark hair and bright green eyes. In this respect, they are unlike anyone alive today.

The people of Forgotten Doggerland, or as they call it “The Land” are fishers, hunters, and gatherers.
