Beliefs of the Swamp Folk



Th'water don't stir 'round these parts, an' th'dead sit just out of sight. Mind yerselves, strangers.

Roll a couple of times for beliefs. Roll once more for a true belief.

 Wisdom
1
Catchin’ an’ burnin’ yer dreams, dire an' golden, drives away th’spirits.
2
Witches are lurkin’ just below th’water. Breakin’ th’tops of th’water lets ‘em out.
3
Th’birds an’ trees conspire ‘gainst us.
4
How can y’trust a vessel y’don’t name? Y’all surely drown.
5
Each an’ every bug s’another spirit tryin’ t’get in.
6
Them short ones sharpen they teeth an’ lurk ‘midst th’trees, watchin’.
7
That shit brewed here’ll keep y’safe from illness an’ plague.
8
Give a stranger hospitality an’ th’swamp’ll surely get ‘em.
9
Stringin’ up th’bones an’ skulls’ll trick th’spirits, keep y’safe.
0
Th’etchin’s cross my skin’ll make sure that they’ll get lost if’er they try an’ follow me through these waters.
