The Wild Hunt

Known by man names, this lore was once much feared. It revolved around the idea of huntsmen who would ride throughout an area and slay anyone who came in their path or even just lay eyes upon them. In some accounts, they were considered to be a sort of law enforcement, however these thoughts were few in number.
The wild hunt would instill fear within anyone who thought of it if they lived within the areas where the lore was prevalent. The lore originated in Europe during the end on the middle ages, possibly slightly later.
