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.
