A Caern is a site of great holy and mystical power to the Garou, with powerful totem spirits bound to it. Their worship of Gaia centers on these magickal regions, and usually their gatherings (Moots) take place at them. The group of all Garou who live at or near a given Caern is referred to as a Sept.
Caern of the Hidden Walk
Currently on GarouMUSH there is one Caern, and the protecting sept is the Sept of the Hidden Walk. A potential Caern site, recently reclaimed from the Wyrm, lies to the south and is guarded by the growing Sept of the Last Days. The Caern of the Hidden Walk was extremely powerful, but was drained of energy by a Mage and made much weaker than it had been. However, the Sept was able to retrieve a powerful Wyld fetish from the Deep Umbra which they though would restore the power that they had lost.
They were wrong.
Or at least they thought they were.
Turns out that the Wyldling spirit bound inside of the fetish actually caused a massive physical and spiritual transformation of the Caern land. The Caern is now favored by the spirit of Fog, also know as Aeolus. The Caern was originally reopened in November of 1993, having been dormant for a half-century previous, since the Wendigo abandoned it. For more information on this Caern, contact a knowledgeable Garou.
