Unearthing the Past
The Ravencrest family is one of the noble houses in Stotzingen, the regional capital. The current patriarch, Lord Wilhelm Ravencrest, is seen by many as a prime candidate for the position of [[Brünfeld | Elector Count] of Stotzingen. Wealthy, influential, and admired by the people, he was one of the driving forces behind sending an expedition into the Darkmoon Vale to exploit its resources.
Friedrich, son of Wilhelm, took advantage of all the luxuries of his position, so much so that few had any respect for him. In the end his indulgences became his undoing as he ventured into the Vale while intoxicated and was found several days later by a party of adventurers, strung up in a tree, a meal for a tatzlwyrm.
