Magical Mystery Turin

In a story straight out of the fictional town of Sunnydale, a prayer book and vial of Holy Water were stolen from the Chiesa della Gran Madre di Dio (or Church of The Great Mother of God) in Turin, Italy. Investigators seemed pretty convinced that the items were stolen for the purpose of "black magic", not the kind of conclusions that your typical police detective might come to in an ordinary city...but then Turn is apparently not an "ordinary" place. Perhaps best known for it's sleek Italian automobiles, and the Church of Saint John The Baptist, which houses the "Shroud of Turin"; Turin appears to be a HOT SPOT in an age old battle of "Good" vs. "Evil".

Turin is said to serve as a point in two separate magick triangles, one "white" which also includes Lyon and Prague, the other evil; connecting Turin with London, and San Francisco.

Turin is also among cities thought to be the hiding place of the "Holy Grail" of legend.
