Ravenmoor?


Lost Omens Campaign Setting General Discussion


I seem to recall hearing of a small town near Riddleport called Ravenmoor, but I can't find it on the map or a reference to it when I searched this site.
Does it exist or was it a figment of my imagination?
If it does exist, are there any details about it somewhere? Is it going to be a part of future APs?

RoRL #3, pages 62, 66. It looks ~50 or so miles due east of Riddleport, past Roderic's Cove and the Churlwood, on the eastern shore of the Lampblack river.


Thanks.

I've got a short story I wrote set in Ravenmoor, and that story'll maybe someday turn into a GameMastery module. Might even show up in Pathfinder, I suppose. We'll see...

I'm interested to discover what hidden religion the folks there follow and why all the empty inns. Time to brainstorm!

Brainstorm...is that the cause?!? Sounds like an aboleth attack.

The adventure I ran at Paizocon was an unfinished one that I hope, some day, to complete. It's called "The Feast of Ravenmoor," and it's set in said town. It does indeed explain what's going on in town and why the place is so messed up, but it'll probably be a long while before it sees print, if ever. Cause first I haveta write it!

Damn it Jacobs! Do we have to petition for you to be shackled to your desk again? Get to writing man! Life is to short for you to be dilly-dallying around while we eagerly await this adventure.

Well, my group is about to pass through there. Any minor info may help me jump to conclusions!

I was playing in James' adventure.

There's an extraplanar creature mystically tied to the area, probably through some sort of fetish secured under the inn on the central hill-top. The locals have evolved rituals to placate it, so's it doesn't kill them, and they honor and revere it.

We got kind of a "mothman" vibe out of it.

Mothman's a great place to go for inspiration for Ravenmoor, in fact.

So is Lovecraft's "The Dunwich Horror" and the original movie version of "The Wicker Man."


I also played in it at Paizocon as Merisiel and, along with Chris's Lem, was forced to witness the undeath of Harsk. Poor poor dwarf.

:D

The adventure was very cool, and it would be great to see it fully done as a module! Everyone start begging James now.

It was a dark mystery and had a very Lovecraftian feel (right down to the undying monstrosity at the end).

Ravenmoor seemed an old, relatively isolated village with ties to dark, ancient, and mysterious rituals and entities. Good times!

Liberty's Edge

That's all I needed. I love a little inspiration. I can see it now. Fog-shrouded hills leading to a quiet village with folks acting too calm and polite for the PC's nerves. Ah, yes, perfect.

And, so far I have either seen or gone out and rented all the movies suggested in Pathfinder's editorials...it's a great way to do some homework.

Game on!
