The Treaty of Verdun establishes the eastern kingdom of the now divided Frankish empire as East Francia, the precursor to the Kingdom of Germany, the Holy Roman Empire, and eventually the modern state of Germany. The Alemannic territory of Alsace is not included, being assigned instead to the Middle Francia kingdom.

Alamanicus is wandering his old Alemanni haunts, revisiting the places where once he used to drink, carouse, and beat up the odd Roman legionnaire or two. Things have moved on since his day, and the old Alemanni country now lies across south west Germany, French Alsace, and northern Switzerland. Cut through by the mighty Rhine, it is an area of great beauty, and a lot has happened there since Alamanicus last walked this land.
