A steep hill rises up from the western side of the Severn river. The heavy forest that begins at the top of the hill stretches for several miles in every direction; tall trees crowding close together, making progress difficult and blotting out much of the light. Lying in a clearing no more than a few dozen paces into the forest, though the dense foliage means that those wandering through the trees are unlikely to come across it unless they know it is there, stands Severn Temple Covenant.

Welcome to Severn Temple covenant, a small community of magi struggling to prosper on the edge of the Forest of Dean. The covenant is the focus of an Ars Magica campaign set in and around Gloucester in the years following the Norman invasion of England. These pages contain information on the covenant, its inhabitants and the surrounding lands. If you're interested in finding out more about the Severn Temple, a good starting point might be the journal, which contains a record of events in every year since the covenant was refounded in 1080 AD.
