The Watchers Apparitions

Image description.

An artist's interpretation of the Watchers apparition. "Watchers" are phantasms, which are said to be encountered at eerie nightly locations like moors, swamps, deep ancient forests and cemeteries. They appear in the form of roughly humanoid, grey-cloaked shapes, who are only visible from afar, and will not move at all when encountered. They are supposed to be neutral, standing between evil haunts and good spirits; they may represent apparitions of dead people, whose presence is meant either as a message of some sorts to those they left behind or as a warning to those, who try to enter perilous territory.
