Ravenbrook is a town in Darkmoon Vale, in the nation of Dwarfholm. The settlement is little more than a logging village, comprised almost exclusively of lumbermen in the employ of the Lumber Consortium and their families. With few exceptions, the buildings and their inhabitants belong to the Consortium and totally depend on the overpriced goods delivered by the organization.

It’s said that in times long past, dwarves settled in the surroundings of Ravenbrook; rumors persist that forgotten treasures of their fallen civilization yet remain to be found. Yet today it’s a place for the desperate with no other place to go, for outcasts and religious zealots seeking to avoid hindrances brought on by their surroundings.

Ravenbrook is located a short distance south of Darkmoon Wood, and many of the inhabitants of the community work as loggers within the forest’s confines in the employ of the Lumber Consortium; roads radiating from the town often lead to lumber camps operating on the edge of the treeline. The volcano Droskar’s Crag dominates the skyline to the northwest, and its presence is felt throughout the region in the form of mudpots, geysers, and areas of past lava flow.

The River Foam acts as the southern boundary of Ravenbrook, as it passes southeast towards Greybay Lake. The settlement boasts the flow’s only ferry, a fact that helps secure the Consortium’s hold on the region as currently no bridges span the river to provide other means of easy passage.

Life in Ravenbrook revolves around the harvesting of darkwood, and as such the Lumber Consortium holds sway over the community; the Consortium’s primary representative in the area, Thuldrin Kreed, maintains control of the region by denying goods and services through means other than those he allows. Firmly believing his hold on the town to be complete, Kreed has no qualms against exploiting his power and position for personal gain, often at the expense of the citizenry. However, dissent does exist. Both Magistrate Vamros Harg and Sheriff Deldrin Baleson would like to see Kreed removed from his position of authority.

Ravenbrook is one of the oldest logging communities in Dwarfholm; the town is run by the Lumber Consortium. Ravenbrook is also a popular location amongst adventurers, who set out in search of riches rumored to remain hidden in the region’s many dwarven ruins

Most inhabitants of Ravenbrook are human, with the most notable exception being halfling Magistrate Vamros Harg. Other notable personages of the town include Gavel Thuldrin Kreed, his right hand Payden “Pay Day” Teedum, and Sheriff Deldrin Baleson

The Ravenbrook Tribunal is the primary government building in the area, run by the halfling Vamros Harg, Magistrate of Ravenbrook. Providing the community with general public services, as well as presiding over disputes and prosecutions, Harg is known to be controlled by agents of the Lumber Consortium; his decisions are often made in support of the Consortium’s men and operations.

This run-down building opens onto the High Market, and has seen better days; once one of the town’s more impressive structures, Thuldrin Kreed has been diverting funds to better his personal home and the Headquarters has suffered as a result. It usually remains vacant unless Kreed decides an official setting is warranted.

Lady Cirthana sees little support from the inhabitants of Ravenbrook, and her Temple and actions have been openly denounced by the Lumber Consortium. Despite this, she does what she can to serve those few who turn to Mayaheine for guidance in life.
