I kinda dig the flavor text. IN my very last game I did in fact get the quest to go to the City and decided to do it in accordance with the flavor text, which meant, I had to land / arrive on the Square of Kings, during the night phase. I did manage to do it and not so uneasily, but I can see where it makes it a bit harder.
Hey, Warlock, I remember posting something a while ago about The Witch Tree as an encounter card or some such that when revealed must be placed in the Cursed Glade. I could never think of anything else to add to it, besides what the flavor text of that Quest implied.
So, once again, maybe the creators were listening and created the Witch Tree for the
forest, Woodland but as you say, what is the connection. Maybe there is and maybe not (a random drawn card that goes there, again for what purpose?) but the space itself is a nod to the flavor text. we'll see.
To me a Witch Tree would be some sort of trap; losing a turn, maybe. Of course if a Witch Tree encounter card was placed on the Cursed Glade, in addition to receiving a Talisman, or getting toaded (the two ends of the die roll) perhaps you would have to draw from the Woodlands deck rather than the main adventure deck. Just some musings.
