Colonization of Verath
The Raven Queen is the Goddess of Death. She does not often get involved in questions of right or wrong, but only of death and fate. She is not, contrary to some peoples’ opinions, a cruel goddess, merely a dispassionate one, bringing her cold touch to the good and the evil with equal inevitability. Her worshippers believe that death lies at the end of all things and that it should not be avoided. Instead, people should live a good life so that when their death comes, they can embrace it as a friend.
The Raven Queen is a sworn enemy to Vecna, God of Undeath, whose followers corrupt the natural cycle of life and death. Though all her followers are staunch opponents of necromancy, there is an order of her priests known as the Black Hand who are sworn to hunt down and destroy all undead, litches, and any who seek to escape death or disrupt the cycle of life and death.
