Hey! I love Koracia. I've got some players trying to decipher Raven's Promise and find the place right now. I made a different map of the village using Inkarnate. Feel free to use it however much you like!

Great! Thanks for the feedback! Is the riddle hard/easy enough for your players?

Is the riddle hard/easy enough for your players?
Great question. So far, only one of my players has resolved to try to crack the riddle, and he has not succeeded yet. As it's published, the riddle does not point to any specific potential hexes on the map, and I think that might pose a problem for players. I actually placed Koracia right here:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1J0lS1O ... sp=sharing
within The Shroud, between the mountains and Lake Mill.

I then changed a few lines of the poem to hint at the specific hexes between these mountains and this lake:
Where elves of deception
Still dwell
In the shroud of the animal sanctum

Between Flow's mill
And the heights of Clay's Body
Lies the road to Raven’s heart
As you can see, "In the shroud" is right there for players to find if they're observant.
"Flow's Mill" can be figured out to be Lake Mill.
"The heights of Clay's Body" can be figured to be mountains.

They haven't solved the riddle, but I'm confident that once a few more of the players compare the poem to the map, they're going to conclude that Koracia must lie somewhere within those 3 hexes north of Lake Mill. The one player who looked at it without the map handy is guessing the village lies somewhere "up high" perhaps on a mountain.

Also, I am using the title of this poem as the name of my "West Marches" style campaign. It's a great name to contrast with "Raven's Purge."

Cool! Is there a recording of when the players find the poem?

Not yet. The player who's streaming hasn't been told about the poem yet.
