THE VILDEGG BEND

Vildegg Bend is the name given to a curve in the Mashdai River where a series of cascading falls are located. The early Avennorians discovered this bend as they were exploring the Mashdai on one of their perpetual quests for wealth. They set up a city at the foot of these falls and named it Marcogg after their leader Liemolf Marcogg.

Vildegg Bend can be found half way up the Mashdai River where the city of Marcogg is now located. There are a series of seven cascading falls that drop down a sloping basalt ridge a total of 150 peds over a length of 700 peds. There is no formal name for these falls but the locals just say "the Steps" or "the Bend" when refering to the falls. The first drop is the largest and is given the unimaginative name, "First Fall", and drops about 50 peds. The next five all drop between 9-12 peds and cover about 400 peds. The last fall is about 80 peds downstream from the others and drops over a last large boulder. It falls about 17 peds and is given the name "Foot Fall", probably after some long forgotten jest. Vildegg Bend and its falls are located in the province Manthria.
