The Goddess of Death
The Raven Queen is the goddess of death. The party sought to learn the cause of the disturbance between realms and subsequent resurgence of magic and monsters. Dealings with the Queen are double-edges; every favor asked of the Queen comes at a deadly cost. She wishes to claim the soul of one party member; but negotiates passage of those who win a battle against her monsters, or requires 100 souls of the White Spire faction delivered within one week. The party narrowly escaped battle without losses.
Seeking to fowl Manaas’s schemes against the gods (pun intended), the Raven Queen informs the adventuring party of his objective and sends them to destroy the Mirror of Dannas. Unable to safely enter the material plane, she sends Karraak with the party, to monitor their progress.
