The Rhine Valley
The Rhine river is the largest and most powerful river in central Europe. It stretches from the Atlantic ocean where it empties out, all the way to Lake Constance in Switzerland where it begins. Along it’s path are numerous historic sites both magical and mundane. Since the founding of the order magi have attempted to settle covenants along it’s route. Seeking to take advantage of it’s inherent magical qualities. To date, no covenant that has been founded along it’s banks has survived more than 80 years. This has led to wide speculation that the Rhine valley itself is cursed and any attempts to settle within it are doomed to failure.
