The Corvids Arrive at Crowshaven, a Surprise Welcoming

The group manage to get through the rest of their journey through the Grimwood without any further problems or delays, and after what feels like an age of being away, Corvus returns to Crowshaven; without Finbar but with four others.

Upon arriving, Corvus was most surprised by the welcoming committee that awaited him at the foot of the Great Tree.

Alwyn, the White Raven alongside Harfengel, the Chief of Crowshaven who is soon to be Ravenking; and the sick relative of Corvus, fully recovered and eagerly awaiting her reunion with her brother.

Although he hadn’t left his Ancient Watchtower in over a century, Alwyn knew that he had to in order to pay his part in the fulfilment of the prophecy; he had sent Corvus on a quest that stopped him being able to save his sibling so Alwyn assumed responsibility to get the Starshade herb to her.

There was now a lot of catching up to do, but more importantly, a lot of planning to do. Every Corvid Colony needed to be moved as one Colony to the Treehold Keep to escape the coming Darkness.

The Stone Circle and Mirror Pond at Mistglen

There are a vast number of scary things to be happened upon within the confines of an ancient forest, especially one with a reputation such as that held by the Grimwood. One of those scary things is a sudden clearing, such as the clearing in the centre of the Grimwood known as Mistglen.

The open circle of land set within the confines of the Grimwood is a fair few leagues of open space, with a scattering of trees, ponds and meadows. True it its name, there is also a lot of mist in the area of Mistglen and this gives what could be a place of beauty, an eerie and otherworldly atmosphere.

After battling their way through the rough forest terrain, the Corvids wind up in Mistglen, their attention immediately drawn to the Stone Circle that surrounds the Mirror Pond; they decide to head towards it to take rest and recuperate by the water.

They know now from the map that Alwyn gave them that they are about halfway through the Grimwood and this gives the group a sense of relief.

The problem being that it can soon turn to complacency…

From the Mouth of a Beast, a Narrow Escape

There was no way that Corvus could leave his dead friend behind for his corpse to be eaten by the Man-King’s dogs, or worse.

He dived back in through the window and into the chamber, avoiding the swings of the axe and trying his best not to become the guard dogs next meal.

Corvus grabs the body of his dearest friend and narrowly escapes the teeth of the guard dog and makes it out of the window and into the air to rejoin the other Corvids.

Now they have the Crown, the next phase is to return to Crowshaven and get the Ravenking crowned; a necessity in order to unite all of the Corvid Colonies and move to the castle at Treehold Keep before the Darkness comes.

Before that can be thought about in depth though, there is a more pressing matter at hand.

Corvus needs to hold a funeral for his oldest friend, Finbar…

The Long Flight to Ironholde

With the last whirling mists of the Graveland well behind them and the strange binding worn off, the Corvids once again take to the skies and stretch their aching wings.

They stick to the coastline for this leg of the journey so as to avoid entering the Grimwood, doing so at this point would risk too much of a delay and if they got lost in the ancient forest they would never get to Ironholde in time to fulfill the prophecy.

The Fall of Ethelred into a Watery Tomb

Not stopping for rest before entering the Graveland was about to prove fatal for the group. The calling voice seemed to have become fainter, as if further away now despite them heading closer towards it.

Entering into the Graveland the Corvids felt a shift in the atmosphere, the air felt denser and thick and they began to feel exhausted. There were watery pools scattered about throughout the land that they needed to head across and an eerily oppressive mist.

The calling started to get to Ethelred in a way that it didn’t affect the others, he started to become obsessed with finding its source despite the others wanting to move on and leave the forsaken wastes far behind.

Suddenly and without any warning, Ethelred flaps his wings and takes to the sky, at first he seems to be flying fine but then he becomes stiff as though wrapped in the web of a large spider and he rapidly drops from the air and splashes into one of the pools of water.

All of the remaining Corvids other than Corvus attempt to fly to get to him with haste and despite flying low and closer to the ground than he did they all suffer the same bound up fate, without landing in the water thankfully. Corvus heads towards Ethelred’s location hopping as fast as he can with the odd flap of his wings to boost himself, cautious of suffering the constriction of the oddly dense atmosphere.

As Corvus reaches the pool that Ethelred fell into, he sees him just rise above the water, flapping his one free wing to try and get himself out of danger but to little avail. Corvus finds a stick and uses it to try to pull Ethelred to safety.

Finding it too much of a struggle to pull his friend from the water with his leg strength alone, Corvus decides to use his wingpower and he flaps his strong wings to pull himself backwards and drag Ethelred with him.

He feels the fog enclose him, his wings stick to his body, he falls to the ground unable to move his wings any longer.

Ethelred is lost…

A Mysterious Calling from the Entrance to the Graveland

Reaching the end of the Burntwood, the group find the entrance to the Graveland; several Corvid skulls decorate the desolation surrounding the entrance which is a hole in the rocky outcrop that surrounds the entirety of the land they’re heading towards.

Corvid warriors often wear the skulls of their ancestors into battle but seeing the skulls of their kinfolk used in this manner strikes the Conspiracy of Corvids with both fear, and intense anger. The Rattus Rodentius had desecrated the remains of the fallen Corvidae soldiers and the remains have been left in place ever since.

Corvus swore that once the quest was over with and the Darkness passed, if he was still alive he would lead an expedition to retrieve all of the remains of the 6th Corvidae Legion and give them a proper funeral. All those that perished in the Burtnwood would have been reduced to ashes but those who fought their last stand in the Graveland needed to be taken elsewhere.

Suddenly, a strange calling could be heard coming from the entrance to the Graveland; suspicious of a trap set by their enemies; if indeed any remained in this land but intrigued as to the source of the calling, the group decided to push on without stopping to rest.

Reaching the entrance and seeing through to the Graveland, the Corvids brace themselves to discover the source of the strange calling…

Munin & Hugin Arrive with Grim Tidings

Just as Alwyn finished explaining the properties of the Starshade herb, the other two Corvids that had been seen in the distance arrived. Straight into the Watchtower they entered, looking panicked, flustered and exhausted.

The two Corvids introduced themselves as Munin and Hugin from the Colony of Dimhallow in the Northern Rayvik Kingdom. They had traveled a great distance across the open ocean on the North Sea to find the White Raven and bring him a vital warning.

“Our Sages and Wisebirds insisted that we brought the information to you and that you would know what to do with it and how to save us all!”

Munin done the majority of the speaking, with the occasional affirmative coming from Hugin; Munin’s crazed look and spiked hair certainly suited the message that he carried.

“There is a Darkness spreading throughout the world and it is killing our kind rapidly, it seems to be coming from the Far North; we recently lost contact with all Colonies north to Dimhallow and this is what incited the Sages to send us here. A warning must be giving to all of our Kinsfolk!”

Alwyn had been listening intently and as soon as Munin finished talking his posture changed, his eyes seemed to glow, and he began to relate a prophecy from the Dawn of Corvids.

The Sickness of Corvus’ Sibling

Upon returning from a recent gathering expedition in the Smallwood, Corvus younger sibling was struck with a sudden illness that rendered her almost lifeless and fading rapidly. Corvus tried to seek help from the Colony’s physicians with little joy, none of their ‘remedies’ having any positive effects.

Corvus’ lifelong friend Finbar finds him at his tree and brings some hopeful news:

“The sages speak of a White Raven who lives in an Ancient Watchtower at High Point, he is said to have flown these skies since the days of the Old Empire and possesses a depth of knowledge and wisdom in the art of healing and herb-lore.”

With no other options available, and the prospect of a mystical ancient White Raven; Corvus, with his good friend Finbar alongside him, embarks on a quest that will take him far from his home in Crowshaven.
