(Google Map of the Sept of the Buffalo Grass)

Location Notes: The Sept of Buffalo Grass is Located in Tuttle Creek Wildlife Area just out of sight of highway sixteen where it crosses the north end of Tuttle Creek Reservoir. Until November 2018, the area is fairly secure from development as it is in the lakes flood zone. Of course this brings its own issues every decade or so. The Nearest town is the small town of Randolph (Population 163), but the majority of the shifters in the area consider the nearby Manhattan their primary protectorate.


  • Sept of De Verdronken Stad (“The Drowned City”)
    • 1952- Plans for the Tuttle Creek Dam are started by the Army Corps of Engineers.
    • 1962- The lake begins to fill, affecting ten towns and submerging four of them. Local Garou raise a Caern at the site of this new Wyld space the keep their community together, and most kinfolk affected move to towns nearby such as Manhattan and Riley.
    • 1990’s- After the flood of 1993, the release of water from the spillway exposed 290 million year old rock (known locally as “The Canyon” and accidentally frees a powerful Bane that had been trapped there.
    • 2000’s- After 1st Infantry headquarters are relocated in 1995, Fort Riley is gradually reduced and is decommissioned fully by the mid 2000’s.
    • 2008- The Caern is destroyed during the Gnostic Plague.
  • Sept of the Buffalo Grass
    • 2013- A new Caern is raised at the site of the old one, using a seed shard brought from the Sept of the Hollow Heart by a group of Garou as well as several Fera.
    • 2014- The Sept continues to expand as more Garou as well as many Fera find a welcome home with the Concordant of Stars leadership of the Caern.
    • 2015- Fera are allowed to officially join Septs, and the Caern grows accordingly (reached Level 2).
    • 2016- During a particularly brutal attack by forces of the Wyrm, the Sept is forced to move their Seed Shard temporarily to defend the Caern (Reduced to Level 1). Several members of the sept were lost during this battle, including the forme Wyrm Foe, a Get of Fenris named “Buries His Claws Deep”.
    • 2018- During the November 11 assaults to stop the Third City Plague virus, many of the Sept of Buffalo Grass were killed in combat. The Seed was secured and removed to be transported to Kansas City. The Shard was replanted near Parkville, MO and was rededicated as the Sept of the Heartland Star.
