Quaerentes in Extremis
Elk’s Run (Meath)
Of a somewhat different temperament are the magi of Elk’s Run. Established only a year ago, the covenant consists of younger and more ambitious magi. Nestled in a large, isolated valley to the west of Lake Derg, it consists of a group of small towers surrounded by miles of pasture and fields. In a grove of trees to the west stands the council hall of the covenant.
It is widely thought that the wizards of Elk’s Run have been intemperate in establishing relations with the Norman conquerors of Hibernia. In their lust for territory and continental luxuries, they have, in some eyes, sold their souls and futures to the enemy who already is slowly clearing away the mystical forests, which have stood since before human memory. To others, they are merely taking the traditional role of the Order of Hermes, finding accommodation with whichever ruler happens to claim a land. Lately, Elk’s Run has been engaged in a series of disputes over claims to mystical sites. They wish to lay exclusive claim to certain areas far from their home, while other magi argue that only areas near the covenant may be reserved for one’s exclusive use.
