The Raven Queen's ChampionsD&D Insider Article

By Robert J. Schwalb

The Raven Queen's portfolio includes death, fate, and winter. Understanding how these aspects relate to the deity provides keen insight into what it means to serve her and what she expects in return for the power she bestows. In this article, you'll find a host of new powers, feats, and paths for her faithful servants.

Adventurers have an uncommon connection to death. Throughout their careers, they send souls by the hundreds to the Shadowfell. They might have even felt death's unwelcome embrace from time to time, standing at its door or going through it only to be snatched free by a timely ritual or prayer. If you choose the Raven Queen as your patron deity, consider carefully why you made this choice. It might be enough to pledge service to the deity because she's appealing in a gothic sort of way, but having a reason beyond dark clothing and corpse paint will provide a far more rewarding experience.
