The Sept of Sacred Waters
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…
Devil’s Lake is the home of the sept.
The Seed Shard has been planted in a hollowed out tree. It is suspended in water, which flows from an underground source into the tree.
A long, narrow single room building which is used for a variety of purposes by the Sept.
A shrine dedicated to the memory of the wolves lost during a fateful attack during Year One.
NEAR DEVIL'S LAKE
West of the Devil's Lake can be found a Fianna Compound. This compound houses several dozen Fianna kinfolk.
Several farmhouses can be found on the southern side of Devil's Lake. They currently house about a dozen kinfolk from mixed tribes. They're all children, ranging from eight to seventeen.x
At the western entrance to Devil's Lake, there is a structure dedicated to spreading education about wolves and their place in our ecosystem. Ironically named after the key protestor against wolves at Devil's Lake.
The Dells have grown at such a rate that it has completely enveloped Baraboo to the west, north, and east. To the south, there is a bit of undeveloped land which the Garou refer to as "The Strip".
The strip of land about 5 miles wide which separates Baraboo from Devil’s Lake.
DISTRICTS OF BARABOO
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.
A large hotel. Very tacky, complete with a fake lake.
The district’s token Japanese joint. Offers virtually anything thought of as traditionally Japanese, ranging from sushi and hibachi to an exotic massage parlor. Known hangout of the Japanese Yakuza.
A dance club owned by Shinji, owner of the Black Lotus.
Their sign shows a stem with the last piece of the clover falling off and the slogan “If it weren’t for bad luck, I wouldn’t have any luck at all.” Known to be the headquarters of the Irish Mob in the area.
A no-cost hospital operated in the Slicks. Used almost exclusively by the homeless and low-income families in the Slicks.
The old downtown area is quantly referred to as Lowtown. Baraboo's spike in growth led to the city being primarily multi-level structures, therefore the old downtown area is now the lowest part of town.
Directly to the west, north, and east of Baraboo, the Dells are a prominent business and entertainment center. As we have a Vampire game set in Wisconsin Dells, please refer to that setting document for further information.
A high-rise in the business district of Wisconsin Dells. While tPPC is technically outside of the Garou's typical operating grounds of Baraboo, their influence is vast and often affects Baraboo.
Sauk City is medium sized town found to the south of Devil's Lake. It is free of the troubles that Baraboo and WI Dells bring.
This university has several hundred students receiving technical degrees in a variety of environmental-related topics.
OTHER NOTABLE LOCATIONS
