The Raven Sanctum is an instanced area inside a mountain in Bjora Marches, which becomes accessible to a character after completing the story step The Invitation in The Icebrood Saga. It is a trial in which Raven tests his havrouns, forcing them to navigate a maze, question their perceptions, and ponder the solutions to three hypothetical dilemmas. There are no right answers to these dilemmas; their purpose is to improve the havroun's wisdom by demonstrating the complexity of life and its lack of straightforward solutions to problems.

The trials may be navigated once per day for a beneficial effect and some loot. See Mysteries of the Raven Sanctum for details.
