The following is an entry in my series on Ultimate Greyhawk. Much like how comics and movies will reboot a franchise with a new take on an old concept, this is my personal re-imagining of the Greyhawk Campaign Setting beginning with the venerable town of Hommlet.

The following locations are numbered based on how they appear on the map of the village of Hommlet as found in the module T1-4 The Temple of Elemental Evil.
4. Widow Finnch's Farm
The Widow Jellek Finnch is a crazy cat lady. Townfolk believe that after the death of her husband and sons during the Battle of Emridy's Meadow she went a little nuts. The truth of the matter is that Jellek is a Witch and her family still lives with her. After the battle, in the dark of night Jellek made a pact with otherworldly entities and through a profane ritual she transformed her husband and children into ghouls that live in warrens and tunnels that criss cross the town. While her numerous feline companions may look like cats they are in fact cat-things, part cat, part familiar, part something else. Ghoul tunnels attach to the crypt at the church and the Inn and many other buildings in the town.More importantly these tunnels have invisible gates that connect to a Dream Realm and the labyrinth of tunnels beneath Moat House.
