NPC - The Raven Queen

NPC - The Raven Queen

She is a mysterious figure seen wandering the lower Kron Hills east of Hommlet where the ruins of old villages and farms remain from the time of the Temple of Elemental Evils first rising and defeat. Many of the locals fell under its sway at the time or were driven out or killed and the area became wild and abandoned. Now that the temple has again been defeated and Hommlet risen in prominence with the outer walls of the castle completed people are again returning to the area. To the south one of the garrions of the Verbobonc Lancers is no more than 10 leagues away and they have made great inroads on the monsters and tribes and bandits which had been calling these lands home.

The Raven Queen been spotted many times but never approached. Always great flocks of ravens and crows surround her and she herself can disappear among them perhaps transforming into one of the birds herself. She is seens as a good omen to the returning farmers and offerings are made to her and her conspiracy of ravens and murder of crows. She is said to have driven of monsters and predatory beasts from the newly formed villages forming in this wild land, but no one really knows who or what she is.

  1. Like the concept of bringing the Raven Queen to Oerth/Oerik. In my own home brew Greyhawk campaign, I placed a stronghold of Raven Queen followers in the Valley of the Mage. The legends of Valley Elves "rhyme well" with the Shadar-Kai (perishing upon leaving the Valley = Shadar Kai returning to their ancient form, the "Black One" as a follower swayed by a regegade dark elf bride,etc.). In this setting, a murder of Ravens/crows are often seen exiting the valley entrance to spy on other parts of the realm. This blog post gives a touch point for where the Raven Queen is spying elsewhere in the Oerik continent .....Enjoy incorporating on the Raven Queen in Greyhawk.
