The Raven Wood was home to a dark secret, an ancient evil that was buried deep beneath its floor thousands of years ago. By the time the Mutation took root in the forest a hundred years ago the people of the village of Ravenswood had long forgot that secret.
The people of Ravenswood have enjoyed a relatively peaceful existence since the end of the Race Wars. The spread of the Mutation; however, has increased over the last several years and has started to threaten the tiny light that the village represents. The crops do not yield as much as they used to, and game is harder to come by. When a priest of Moradin stumbled across an ancient secret, he thought he had discovered the source of the Mutation and the means to cleanse it.
He died that night.
