Raven Roost Performers
a circus of dwarves, halflings and humans dressed in creepy animal costumes who perform acrobatic dances in tribute to the Raven Queen
The Raven Roost Performers were formerly bandits who stole from travelers along the Trade Road between Fallcrest and Hammerfast. Leadership of the band has been taken over by Erzoun a shadar kai witch and her three shadar kai associates. They have taught the bandits about the Raven Queen and indoctrinated them into her religion. They perform impressive acrobatic dances which pay tribute to the Raven Queen. They travel in a chaotic parade playing drums and bagpipes and other instruments in an eternal funeral march. The performers practice penance with barbed garters tightened around their legs or arms and self lashings. They have many tatooes and piercings. They dress in creepy bunny costumes or other animal costumes and as they parade across the land they dance around a huge marionette of a raven. Their performance features the many animals being dragged away by a raven which represents death.
