Raven Queen Symbol

The Raven Queen's symbol, by [missing artist].[citation needed]

The Raven Queen is the ancient goddess of death. She is so old and mysterious that her true name has long been lost. Her patrons seek her favor to guide them in death and prevent the curse of undeath from falling on them. In this regard, she and the demon lord Orcus are fierce enemies. The Duskmeadow District of Vasselheim is devoted to worshiping her and is also where her temple, Raven's Crest, is located.[3] As an NPC, the Raven Queen is played by Matthew Mercer.
