The Darkness Spreads

It felt like a lifetime since Corvus had left Crowshaven in pursuit of finding the Starshade herb that would cure his sister’s sickness. He had found the mystical and somewhat mythical White Raven; learned of an ancient prophecy and now seen it reach its fulfilment.

The Crown of Crows had been obtained and a Ravenking had been crowned after centuries of divided tribal territories.

The battle for Treehold Keep was over and the war won by the Corvids.

Now all that was left was a waiting game. The Corvids knew that the Darkness was going to spread and they were assured by Alwyn, the White Raven, that the castle was a place of safety and sanctuary.

The Darkness slowly swallowed up the landscape; the Corvids kept themselves hidden away and prepared for a long, dark winter…

The Great Cleanup Effort

With the battle over and the surviving Rodents fleeing off into the distant landscape there was only one call to order left for the Corvids before the Darkness finally reached the land.

The great cleanup effort was at hand, all of the corpses had to be removed from Treehold Keep and burned, despite the traditions and hereditary laws of the Corvids and their funeral rites, this included their kin.

Treehold Keep would keep its inhabitants safe from the Darkness but only if the castle was clean and without any fresh remnants of death and decay for it to cling to and infect those nearby.

For the first and hopefully last time in Corvid history; Corvids were cremated alongside Rodents and in a rush too which meant little or no real funerary speeches or rituals.

Times were indeed changing. Life was heading in a drastically different direction. The world the Corvids knew along with it…

The Rattus Rodentius Army Awaits

When the Corvid scouts returned to Harfengel the Ravenking with news, it was as expected.

Grim.

The Corvid scouts spotted the Rodents inside the castle and in turn, they too had been spotted and the Rodents were quick to raise the alarm and prepare for a siege.

It was hoped that the castle was empty but the Corvids had left Crowshaven with war in mind as the most likely outcome.

This was it.

This was the culmination of a long history full of rivalry and vengeance; deep seated hatred that had been passed down through the generations.

This was the beginning of the end…

The Corvids Arrive at Treehold Keep

The journey from Crowshaven to Treehold Keep was a relatively straight forward affair; but upon arrival the Corvids were aware of an ominous atmosphere around the castle itself. They kept back at a distance at first, to keep an eye on the castle itself. Harfengel sent a handful of Corvids to survey the area and get the lay of the land.

The rumours of the Rattus Rodentius clans moving into Treehold Keep some years ago were well known to the Corvids, so an ambush was to be expected; and Corvids are very curious creatures so there were no chances to be taken.

Keeping their distance across the water until more information was available was the safest play until the Corvid scouts returned with news; whether good or bad…

A Corvid Soldier, Skull Helm Detail

As far back as the great Raven’s Tales go, Corvids famously wear one piece of armour into battle. The skull helm of an ancestor that died valiantly in a previous battle. Other than the helm, it’s just a sharpened beak and talons ready for any grappling needed.

The skull helm gives its wearer an edge, not only is their head protected from their enemies, it adds a massive intimidation factor. Throughout the history of Corvids, the Rattus Rodentius Clans (the sworn enemies of Corvid-kind) have always held a deep-seated fear of the skull helms worn by the Corvids; therefore they have always tried to take the helms away from Corvids they have defeated in battle.

Wearing the skull of an ancestor also gives the Corvid an added responsibility, they want to live up to the great deeds of their ancestors…

The Corvids Assemble for War

The time had finally come. Preparations were being made. The war assembly was underway

Harfengel the Ravenking had all the Corvids getting ready and dressed for the grand exodus and battle that awaited them. Since the days of the Old Corvidae Empire, such a large Colony of Corvids had been unheard of.

Even now, on the day they were preparing to leave, more Corvids were arriving; Alwyn hatched a plan to leave a a handful of messengers for any late arrivals, they were to leave and fly for Treehold Keep as soon as any sign of the Darkness was apparent.

The Corvids donned their skull helms with pride, sharpened their beaks and hoped for safe passage to their new home…

The Last Corvid Colonies Arrive at Crowshaven

A Ravenking had been crowned. The Corvid world was changing, and changing fast; which was a necessity with the Darkness coming. The word had spread across the many lands that Corvids inhabited in the days following the crowning of Harfengel, there was a constant stream of incoming new Corvids.

Only so much time was left though, it was very nearly time to leaveCrowshaven and head to Treehold Keep and the newcomers were still arriving at a steady pace.

Harfengel announced that within the week they would be leaving Crowshaven and heading off to the new land, ready for war in order to claim the only safe haven…

A Reuniting of Siblings

When Corvus had accepted the quest to fulfil the prophecy that the White Raven had told him about, he knew that he was leaving his ailing sibling to a certain death. This was not a decision that was taken lightly however, it was a decision that he had to make.

She was distraught by the news that Finbar hadn’t made it back home, he would be greatly missed, especially with the major changes coming to all of the Corvid Colonies.

The first major change would begin tomorrow, with the crowning of Harfengel, making him Ravenking…

A Battle of Greed, Munin Against Hugin

The idea of kingship has never crossed the mind of neither Munin or Hugin, the fight that the two ended up engaged in is testament to the power of the trickery of the Mirror Pond. It started out as an innocent glance at their reflections in the water and ended in a full blown battle; not only against each other, but also against themselves.

The two brothers from the distant northern Colony end up fighting each other in a meaningless battle of greed.

The other Corvids have a long moment of not knowing what to do, whether to step in and try to stop the fight or to leave it to unfold.

Corvus decides to take matters into his own hands…

A Reflection of Glory in the Mirror Pond

The Mirror Pond in Mistglen is a place of legend, there are many tales known to the beings that live outside the Grimwood; the only problem being how much the tales differ from one another as to what the Mirror Pond offers.

Corvus is wary of the place and the ‘promises’ it apparently offers and he warns the others to be cautious whilst near it.

Hugin and Munin however, have different ideas. They find themselves immediately drawn to the cool reflective glare of the Mirror Pond and they immediately head to the water’s edge for a better look.

What each of them sees looking back at them is their own reflection, but wearing the Crown of Crows, a promising future of kingship and glory unfold before each of their eyes. The visions that they each see begins to stir up an envious greed and dangerous sense of ambition; they describe to each other the visions they saw.

This causes and intense feeling of jealousy between them; Hugin dives at Munin in rage…
