The Seven Ravens

An In-Development Murder Mystery TTRPG with a Twist!

Nothing (particularly) strange has ever happened to you, but something has always felt a bit off about your connection to this world. Something weird and, so far, unexplainable! You and a few strangers meet up in a peculiar location and you know they all have the same feelings. Who are these other travelers and what are the mysteries behind this sudden kinship? Will this adventure bring you all the comfort and answers you've always known you needed to seek out?

Your Storyteller will guide you to a mysterious place, where you and your new chums need to uncover hidden talents, bring to light past unresolved murders, and hopefully find your way back with your memories intact!

About Development


Originally this was made up by Evel, using their complete lack of knowledge about TTRPGs and game cards from the boardgame Mysterium! FePho pushed to have it be a proper finished thing.


FePho and Evel finished the dev notes of Seven Ravens, and are hard at work completing the Player Guide! Lupé gifted us their poetry talent to get us started on a poem, adding an entire time mechanic which was sorely lacking.

They are nearing completion of the Game Manual (which includes the player guide and storyteller guide) which they'll be sending to our editor to put final polishes on. After that they will be adding art and making a Quick Play Guide which will include a story, maps, and example materials so that players and a story teller can quickly start a game. Cassowary will then take all that and typeset it for printing so we can have a super slick ready to print edition!
