News was, naturally, slow coming in from the Utter North. I mean... it was utterly northwards, and utterly horrible to get to, live in and probably utterly dull even to talk about. It was just really really cold right?

So it could have been that the Cult of the Raven's Flock had been operating for months, or even years without anyone noticing. Or maybe they just turned up?

Either way, whatever they were doing was enough of a concern that gentle rumours were heard in the north of the Empire of this new group, evil priests largely with wraith like power, causing trouble.

But.... it was the Utter North right? So... utterly irrelevant to them surely?
