The Sept of Sacred Waters

PRE-GAME HISTORY

Madison was once a glowing beacon to Garou. A powerful cearn and a strong sept. Both would eventually be destroyed due to the sept's pride. The few survivors made their way to Devil's Lake and laid low, licking their wounds.

But seventeen years have passed and a new generation of shifters has recently went through their first change. They begin to prepare to take the fight back to the Weaver and the Wyrm. But this time, they set their sights on The Dells, which is growing at an uncontrollable rate.  It is now known as the "Vegas of the Midwest" and is a place where any indulgence can be found... for a price.

Can the Garou redeem the loss of Madison by taking back The Dells?

History Until Now…

  • There was once a great caern in Madison. It was destroyed in 1999, after the red star shone, by the numerous enemies of the Garou sept there.
  • The few survivors of the attack fled to Devil's Lake to lick their wounds and rebuild.
  • Madison has since become heavily infested by the Wyrm and the sept agreed as a whole to focus their attentions elsewhere.
  • The Wisconsin Dells area was determined to be the next place for the Garou to work.
  • The Wisconsin Dells in game is known as the "Vegas of the Midwest" or sometimes "Little Vegas".  It has a population of nearly 500,000 people and is growing at an incredible, perhaps unsustainable rate.
  • The southernmost part of the Dells is known as "The Downs" and is a hive of scum and villainy.  The area has been growing quickly in recent years, growing southward toward Devil's Lake.
  • The first new generation of shifters has come of age.  That, combined with the rapid expansion of the Downs has spurred the sept into action.
  • The Sept Leader, "Blade of Fury", recently led a group of Garou (including many of the Alphas) to follow-up on a rumor about a potential seed shard. This would allow the sept to create it’s own caern.

DISTRICTS OF BARABOO

THE DOWNS

The northeast part of the Dells is known as the Downs. The district is characterized by old style stucco structures and carbon copy amusement places. There are numerous lousy strip joints and there is a well-known red light district. The whole district is full of everything no decent person is supposed to want.
