1.  Introduction

Wrapped snug around the northern point of Moosehead Lake, Del Cenere's lush territories are varied by the rims of foothills and mountains, of marshes and floodplains. Secure, and peppered with old and rotted symbols of civilization past, the Gang now stakes its claim in the hollowed shells of what was. At its southern point, the heart of Del Cenere thrums in the form of a bustling trade post called Charmingtown, cradled in the hold of the Burnt Church Mountain range.

2.  Trailside

Blurb for Trailside area goes here.

2.1  Deboullie Public Reserved Land

A Land reserve with a trail winding up the mountain and three ponds; Deboullie, Black and Gardner. Deboullie is larger, and Black and Gardner are on either side and are smaller. The ponds have very few shores, mostly riddled with rocks where fish take up residence, such as Brown, Speckled, Brook and Rainbow Trout and the American Eel. On the trail, there is a large stone work of steps leading to a small wooden shack and further on to the western summit and out of the Land Reserve.

2.2  The Drunk Barrel

Built in the late 1800s this was once a place to hold the uncouth dregs of society, despite its age Boiestown Penitentiary is still an imposing pillar of stone and barbed wire. This building has long fallen into disrepair, the east wing has almost completely collapsed, taking much of the former roof along with it. The northern watchtower still stands, barely. A curious coyote would be well advised to watch their steps, as much of the wooden infrastructure is rotten with age and water damage.

The prison encompasses several floors of stone walled rooms, and barred cells, along with a basement that is long flooded with water from broken pipes and seepage from the nearby bogs. Much of the internal structures have also suffered with age and neglect, many of the cell doors no longer swing freely, having rusted to uselessness long ago. A few cells remain useable, but where are the keys to lock them shut?

2.3  The Trade Post

The only place open to outsiders, the Trade Post is a bustling little settlement, built on the bones of a long-dead homestead. Any fields have been overtaken by forests, the old barn that stood has been halfway overgrown with ivy, and the fence is falling in places, but the old buildings are still sound, the worst of their collapsing over with for the most part. Left behind are their foundations, or the shells of those that couldn’t stand up to the elements, now refashioned into stalls for barter, or workshops, and the old water tower, long dry, now stands to overlook it all.

Points of interest:

  • The Watchtower
  • The Market
  • Ugly Coyote Saloon and Bar


2.4  Irving

A derelict sawmill to the west of the town, built on a river that runs heavily in the spring from runoff from the mountains to Moosehead Lake, and a set of rails that starts at the sawmill and heads off into the mountains, but has since been buried by a fallen tunnel. It is a wide expanse of broken concrete and a single strip of tarmac. To the right of the town, a nursery that supplied the sawmill sits overgrown and unused, but within the growth are several damaged and run-down greenhouses and sectioned fields separated by black gravel.

The greenhouses have long since lost their useful paneling of plexi-glass - the surviving panels have bowed severely, or clouded, or cracked, and the rest seems to be gone completely, leaving the skeletal framework of the buildings that once were. In the center of the town are small cabins, once for the workers of the mill and nursery, but now making a nice grid of small to medium houses that could use a little TLC. Outside of the town, there is a crash site for an old Avenger Spray plane from 1958 tangled in the overgrowth with bits of metal and scrap strewn about.

Points of interest:

  • Clearwater Sawmill
  • The Irving Nursery
  • La Granja
  • This is a Residential Lot!

2.5  Isla de los Ojos

Secluded on the island just off the coast of the Trailside, this town now lays in ruins from time and decay. But then again, not everything that dies in the world wishes to remain dead. Otherworldly forces have their eyes all over the place. When the low hanging fog covers the lake, sometimes, the eyes can be seen glowing in the wind. Only those brave enough, or stupid enough, to venture over would have the constant feeling of being watched, giving the island it's proper name.

3.  Tall Tree

Blurb about Tall Tree here

3.1  Bushtail Well

A natural well, deep and clear, opens up fed by one of the creeks flowing from Moosehead Lake into Tall Tree. The main pool is 50 feet deep, and bubbles filter up gently from the fresh water spring at its base. Adjacent to the main well, a smaller pool sports gentle slopes into a center not deep enough to completely cover a standing Luperci. Depending on the time of day, it is either enveloped in full sunlight, or, shaded by the hovering tree tops. It is a fantastic place to cool off in the summer heat. But beware to those curious enough to try to explore the underwater cave systems of the main well; twisting, rocky tunnels may or may not lead back to the surface.

3.2  The Angel Oak

Long ago, when the sapling was still young, an old bull moose collapsed on its form, and passed away, and while the oak grew, and grew, and grew, it displaced its pieces, entwining and devouring bits of bone and leaving a half-swallowed moose skull wrapped in its large, sprawling branches. Even to the godless, the Angel Oak is awe inspiring by its sheer grandeur, its boughs growing gnarled and old enough to droop down to kiss the earth before bending back up again, pushing the other trees back from its claim. It now stands as a testament to time, and a gathering place for the folks of Del Cenere.

3.3  Ojo del Diablo

An odd but timeless rock feature, jutting up from the highest point of one of the hills overlooking Moosehead Lake. The stones look balanced, almost precariously so. They’ve been worn from wind, and time, and there’s a gap between their shapes, an almost perfect slot, that gazes out towards the horizon at dawn, or, perhaps more directly, casts its shadow and gaze out towards the Isla de los Ojos.

4.  Lakeside

Blurb about Lakeside here

4.1  Casa Inadaptada

Casa Inadaptada was built in the 1960's as a vacationing home, but has since become run down and tired. The two story building has a log cabin exterior with a wooden porch across the front. The house opens up to a small living room, directly connected to the kitchen and dining room. The inside is decorated with wood paneling with what was once green carpet, with the exception of the kitchen which has parquet flooring. Down the hall are 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. Up the rickety stairs 3 more bedrooms can be found, each big enough to fit a single bed and a small table. Behind the house there is a garden, long overtaken by weeds.

4.2  Cabeza de Alce

Once a thriving port that still offers access to the open waters, many of the ones strong buildings have succumbed to the passage of time. What remains is a shell of this once great port. Many of the houses have been destroyed and stone buildings are but ruins. Even so, a couple of the structures on the edge of the waters remain standing, as do the docks. Though in need of some small repairs, this port can still house boats to be cast off the shore and held here until intended use.

4.3  Devil’s Kettle

Sharing the name of a similar phenomenon in the States, a river off of Moosehead Lake empties over a waterfall into a pothole -- with no bottom. Experiments have been done to see where the water goes, but all that's certain is that when something goes in there, it never comes out. Some say it goes all the way down to Hell itself. Regardless, it's a point of interest... and a point of caution.

5.  El Tramo

Blurb about El Tramo here

5.1  Old 108

In 1957, Highway 108 was laid down and served to connect the Trans-Canada Highway with the mines in the Elliot Lake and Quirke Lake area. No longer do cars, carts and trucks travel along the broken asphalt. This vast expanse of blacktop is still yet a highway for nature. Weaving through the overgrown forests, it provides a pathway for many woodland creatures. Nature has sought to reclaim much of this covered land, blanketing sections of its back with foliage and downed trees, but Old 108 lives on, for now.

5.2  Poco Sueño

This crack in the earth was caused by an earthquake long ago. Poco Sueño is inherently dangerous in that it does not appear dangerous. Only two feet wide and approximately twenty feet long, the gouge is perfectly jumpable for the average Luperci, but be wary you do not trip and fall. Beneath the surface Poco Sueño extends almost a half kilometer into the ground, a single misstep will spell fatality.

6.  Sweetwater Bluff

Blurb about Sweetwater Bluff here

6.1  Three Sisters

Three northern tributaries flow into Moosehead Lake, giving the north end of the lake a small southerly flowing current. Before emptying into Moosehead lake, all three of these rivers throw themselves from cliffs roughly twenty feet tall to shatter against the rocks below, then commencing their path into the lake.

  • The Western Tributary, Little Sister, named thus for she is the shortest and smallest of her siblings.
  • The Northern Tributary, Broken Sister, for as she is traveled upstream she breaks into two.
  • The Eastern Tributary, Sunrise Sister, for she begins in the direction of the rising sun and on cloudless mornings, her waters ripple with its rays like fire.

6.2  Silverado Field

A vast sprawling field of green and silver grasses interspersed with stunning blooms, mosses and other flora of all kinds. A natural attractant for all sorts of wildlife from insects to hummingbirds and more! Various herbs and other useful plant life grow here seasonally if you know where to look.

6.3  Lover’s Leap

A cliff-face at the edge of Moosehead Lake, and the point from which The Three Sisters rivers spill their waters. To the south, one can look down upon the lake and on a clear day, see the far end. New as well as established couples like to come to the top of the cliff to partake of the views as well as spend time together to build upon their relationship or to strengthen a bond.

It is said that a long time ago, a couple that were not allowed to be together by their parents used to steal away at night to secretly meet there. After several years, the secret love was discovered and instead of a lifelong forced separation, together, hand in hand, they both leaped to their deaths upon the rocks below. If one were to listen, especially on a moonlit night with wisps of mist floating through the trees, you may hear the mournful wails as the ghosts of the two lovers look for each other among the trees. Some have also claimed to have seen the ghosts wandering the cliffs.

The Parish

Surrounded by thickets of verdant growth at the height of summer, and skeletons of branches in the dead of winter, The Parish rests just beyond the fringes of Moosehead Lake, but within proximity to Lover's Leap, and lays claim to the old, weathered All-Saints Church. The church's belfry houses the Ashen's avian companions and its graveyard provides the final resting place for their dearly departed.

7.  Broke-Leg Marsh

Blurb about Broke-Leg Marsh here

7.1  Lookout Hall

An old, wooden home overlooking the marshlands, Lookout Hall may had been originally used to host campers and fishermen on their trips out. Inside is a mostly completely open, with a dining area along one side, and rotted cots lining the sides. A small storage shed comes off the back, with a door leading in from inside and the shed opening into a dock. A veranda lines the perimeter of the building, with a few creaky steps leading away from the swampy terrain. A rusty tin roof provides some shelter, with the exception of some holes and dents which could be easily mended. The windows are tiny and up higher on the wall, under protection of the awning so that little rain can flood the place.

  • This is a Residential lot!

7.2  Hogares Ahogados

These are a series of dilapidated houses set back into the swamp beyond Lookout Hall. Sunk into marshy ground, some are severely flooded whilst others still retain some semblance of usefulness; a perfect place to preside for particularly prickly persons.
