The Legend of Tojo Creek

Long ago an ancient band of wanderers roamed the forest called Hunters Point near the mighty river we now call the Cumberland.  One day, Tojo the Elder discovered a secret cave from which a magic stream flowed.  The waters made Tojo immortal.  He called the stream Tojo Creek.  To this day no one knows where that secret cave is.  The wood elves say, if you enter these woods at midnight of the first full moon after the winter solstice and be very very still, you will hear Tojo dip his drinking gourd into the creek, take a sip, and begin to sing his song.
