I've used so many of these in my last campaign and they went over great.
The sympathic backstories really put a turn on my players. There's nothing like watching your player being actively killed by a raging scarecrow while refusing to fight back because they're sure if they can get the night hag to talk to them for a minute that she probably isn't that bad. :-)
I highly reccomend this.
