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…

Corvus – A Raven’s Tale – Crown of Crows – Part XXVIII – The Corvids Arrive at Crowshaven, a Surprise Welcoming

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.

Corvus – A Raven’s Tale – Crown of Crows – Part XXII – A Funeral for Finbar, More Mourning for the Corvids

A Funeral for Finbar, More Mourning for the Corvids

The Corvids manage to get to the edge of the Grimwood without any further problems, carrying with them the body of Finbar, broken and lifeless. Each of the Corvids carries the body for a way, sharing the load between them in order to reach their destination as quickly as they can.

At the edge of the Grimwood Corvus announces “We shall hold the funeral for our dear friend here, in this spot, before the Grimwood. To carry him through and try to return him to Crowshaven by this route would be folly. The Great Golden Eagle has a keen eye and will find him wherever he lies.”

The Conspiracy of Corvids calmly collected their thoughts for a few moments, and then they sang a funerary song together as is the custom amongst their kind.

They said their farewells and last to say his was Corvus; who had known Finbar since they were Hatchlings, they then entered the Grimwood.

They entered amongst the shadowy darkness of the trees and the dense thickets, hoping against all hope that they didn’t have to face any more loss before this journey ended…

Corvus – A Raven’s Tale – Crown of Crows – Part XXI – From the Mouth of a Beast, a Narrow Escape

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…

Taking the Crown from the Hand of a God

Finally the moment has come; the opportunity to fulfill the first part of the Prophecy and retrieve the Crown of Crows, every flap of the journey has led to this point.

As earlier agreed, Corvus and Ronin are the ones to take the Crown and the Man-King’s finger in the process, Ronin has the sharpest beak so he will make the cut whilst Corvus takes the finger.

Very much aware of the large, protective canine sleeping just a few feet away, the Corvids decide to go for it and move as fast as possible afterwards.

Corvus begins to pull the Man-King’s finger and Ronin makes the cut…

The Corvids Reach the Man-Colony of Ironholde

After an arduous journey, that has already been fraught with grief and sorrow the Corvids finally reach their destination. Now comes the real challenge.

They arrive at Ironholde in the early evening with the Sun is slowly making His way down towards the western horizon. The Corvids know that a full Moon will be rising this night and in order to fulfill the Prophecy they must take the Crown of Crows before the night is over.

The first step is to identify the room of the Man-King; they quickly do this and then they plan their attack.

Many years ago, Ronin had been kept in a cage in a Man-Colony and he put forward the plan to wait until nightfall to make their move; he had first hand experience of the behavioural habits of Mankind and knew that for the most part, they became unconscious during the Moon light hours.

The Corvids agree to this idea, they find a nice nook in a tower wall to rest in and wait for the full Moon to begin its climb.

Corvus – A Raven’s Tale – Crown of Crows – Part XVI – A Brief Rest at Stonewall

A Brief Rest at Stonewall

With one night remaining before the next full moon and the end of the time limit deemed by the prophecy, the Corvids decided to stop for a decent night’s rest at Stonewall, just a few leagues from the settlement of Ironholde.

This was the first real rest they had taken since leaving the Colony of Thornwatch many days ago. So much had happened in the time since they left Thornwatch and so much ground covered. The loss of Ethelred was also still weighing heavily upon his closer comrades; Everild and Ronin.

Stonewall used to be the home of a Corvid Colony, many moons ago; before the Man-Colony was built at Ironholde and this led to the Stonewall Corvids; those that survived the intrusions, to leave their once loved home and head off elsewhere.

Corvus hoped that it didn’t bode ill for their quest…
