Rumors about Wollbach
Things your character may have learned before arriving to town...
Wollbach is the capital town of the province that shares its name - it holds a 'Thing' several times a year where people from the surrounding villages (and sometimes further afield) come to discuss concerns, air grievances, and trade goods.
The Local Residents
The Province is governed by a Proconsul who lives in the village of Wollbach. Each Village is run by a Magistrate who is advised by a council of 3-5 prominent citizens called the Curia. The Proconsul assigns each village a Warden, who is responsible for protecting the village and enforcing the laws. The Wardens maintain a volunteer militia, people they may pull from their day to day jobs to assist in their duties.
Vampires & Ghouls
A number of merchants and travelers have begun to speak of Wallbach. An isolated province in the Schwarzwald with 5 villages teeming with Kine and no evidence of any vampiric overlords. As far as anyone has been able to tell, the province of Wallbach has almost no vampiric presence beyond a few Gangrel who call the Black Forest home. Such a location is all but unheard of and full of opportunity for any Cainite.
Rumors in recent months have spread like wildfire as word of dragons being sighted by the Valderman Gjorn Varnison while roaming the forests of Wollbach. He was found by a remnant of the Old Faith circle just outside of the province and shared his tale of dragons, chimera, and all manner of magical beasts that reside in the untamed forests. Rumors are conflicted around his survival.
A powerful Fae is rumored to call the province of Wollbach home and have old oaths with the humans here. If rumors are true, this Fae knows the secrets to crafting the old Gold Oaths. Yet despite these rumors no Court has records of who, exactly, claims this area.
This wild & forested area is mostly Fenrir-controlled with a large sept of Fenrir holding the Great Caern located in the middle of the Black Forest. Other, smaller, Caerns are scattered throughout the Schwarzwald and there are two near Wollbach. The closest, within the province itself, is Fenrir-controlled while the other, just to the East of the province, recently taken from the Fenrir by the Silver Fang.
