For years, the stories of the Hangmen were considered tall tales. It was said that The Hangmen were a group of deranged prisoners who escaped from Port Scamwell. They were chased deep into Makopa Jungle and cornered at the banks of Whiplash Rapids. Fearing capture, the Hangmen jumped into the raging rapids, never to be seen again. It’s said they still lurk along the river, attacking all who walk the banks.
