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.

An End to Sibling Rivalry, Corvus Settles the Dispute

In those tense and emotionally charged moments of Munin and Hugin swooping at each other and viciously fighting over a future that was an illusion of trickery shown to them by the Mirror Pond; Corvus joined the fray and powerfully split the two brothers apart.

“Of all that we have lost so far, the many leagues we have covered together and how close at times we have come to death, you two think it right and acceptable to kill each other? To fight over that of which you have no right? We have come all this way to fulfil a prophecy that doesn’t result in either of you becoming Ravenking!”

Munin & Hugin see that Corvus is carrying the pack that contains the Crown of Crows; they discern that he has no ambitions of wearing it himself and he also spent time by the Mirror Pond. The pair realise that they have become seduced by their own greed and ambition and this was enhance by visions that they saw in the water, but visions that already existed in the depths of their own hearts to begin with.

They heed Corvus’ words, they make their peace with each other and vow to see this quest fulfilled in the right manner.

The Corvids settle down to rest for a while longer before heading back into the Grimwood

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…

The Scream of a Man-King & the Murder of Finbar

As soon as Corvus & Ronin took the finger of the Man-King he awoke in a screaming and pained panic, before he could realise exactly what had happened, the dog was awake and trying to attack the Corvids who were fighting back ferociously and keeping the dog’s attention divided as to which of them to go for.

The Man-King saw what was happening and regained his senses, he grabbed the nearest thing he had to hand, which was his axe and began swatting about at the Corvids, trying to land a blow.

Eventually he did…

He landed a fatal blow on Finbar as he attempted to leave the chamber back through the window with Corvus and Ronin who had just escaped with the Crown.

Finbar was struck with the backside of the axe head, his spine and neck broken, killing him instantly.

As fast as that, Corvus had lost his oldest and dearest friend

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 XIV – The Long March of Bitter Grief

The Long March of Bitter Grief

With Ethelred lost to the depths of a watery tomb, and the remaining Corvids still unable to use their wings, nothing is left but to walk away from the Graveland and continue with the quest.

The loss of Ethelred is a bitter blow to the Conspiracy of Corvids and it puts a huge dampener on the journey ahead, most affected by his loss is Everild; she grew up by his side and she was promised to him in marriage, which would have been fulfilled at the end of this adventure.

The long march of bitter grief is taken one small step at a time, putting one foot in front of the other and slowly moving forward.

The long march of bitter grief, a journey long and hard to take

No time is there to sit and weep, a burning strong that lasts an age

The tears will fall, the pit is deep, the hurt a song for darker days

The long march of bitter grief, when words are gone and hearts are pained

Finally out of the Graveland, the Corvids can rest for a while before taking to the skies again and continuing the journey to Ironholde.
