If you have a deep desire to learn about the characters ahead of time, feel free to email the Storyteller, however character sheets will be given on a first-come first-chose basis the evening of the game.

Game is based on the "Vampire: The Masquerade" RPG system. For ten years you have proven your value and worth to your Kindred domitors. They seem pleased, and yet there are things they just do not share with you. Secret meetings, details about their pasts, and plans for the future are either not discussed or only vaguely so. Recently they have all taken on new servants as well. Maybe you should feel a bit nervous? A week ago each one of your masters or mistresses left the City, leaving you behind to deal with a few mundane matters. They have not returned as promised and you are starting to get very worried as younger Kindred begin making moves to take over the City and other ghouls began to question your authority. Can you investigate your domitors' secrets and figure out what has happened to them before it is too late? Note: Mature content.
