Ravenswood is a small farming community on the edge of the Raven Wood, the forest from which the village gets its name. The forest was once a popular hunting destination, but over the last century, the forest has grown increasingly dark as the Mutation spread throughout it. Today, there are few who dare to enter the wood alone for fear of what may lurk within.
When the first human settlers came to the village they encountered resistance from the elves of the forest. Although there were numerous, and bloody, clashes at first, the two sides soon grew to respect one another and a firm peace was established. When the Mutation took hold; however, the elves chose to abandon the wood. Although some traveled to the feywild, most relocated to Ravenswood, choosing to stay with their human allies and attempt to push back the Mutation.
