Ballad of the Chimera
Massive walls surround the entirety of Narella’s kingdom. Ravenhold rests at the gate that acts as the only entrance to the kingdom. Originally a military camp it wasn’t long before a city was founded around it. After passing through the heavily guarded entrance those with the proper paperwork will enter Ravenhold. What they’ll find is one of the largest cities in Narella. All trade with other kingdoms is done through Ravenhold. It’s no surprise that the bustling merchant city is heavily guarded by the military. This is why people with nowhere to go flee to Crow’s Perch and not somewhere outside the city. Despite this however Ravenhold is rumored to have the largest black market in the world. Though no official source has been able to confirm this.
Ravenhold is the first line of defense against invading armies. So naturally it has its fair share of legendary battles. But the most famous of which was a battle in which the Creiwyn forces managed to navigate a large army to the front gates. The battle hadn’t reached the city yet so it was a surprise to see forces that close to the kingdom. A long battle was waged before the order for Narella to retreat was sent out. Creiwyn had far too many mages laying siege to the gate. It was only a matter of time before they broke through. One soldier refused to back down. That soldier was a catfolk woman by the name of Milah. She took her green tipped arrows and started dropping mages left and right. Interrupting spells and thus crippling their military. Once the mages were down the soldiers picked up their bows and started joining in. An entire army was mowed down by Narellian archers. Some say that by the end of the day there were more green tipped arrows in bodies than any other. This earned Milah the title of ‘The Raven’. Though not long after her title would be renounced and she would be branded a traitor.
