About the adventure
🩸You're a monster. And not as some artsy metaphor for the human condition or anything soulless political parasite clinging to the underbelly of D.C. - you're an undying horror prowling the streets by night with an unquenchable thirst for human blood. 🌔But even monsters have things that scare them… things that lurk in the dark or stare hungrily from the mirror. Gather your allies of convenience and stake out a claim. Build your realm block by bloody block, fending off mortal hunters, dark spirits, and greedy undead rivals. Through guile, seduction, or brute force, take what is yours and build a kingdom of the damned. 😈Tis better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven, and Heaven isn't going to let you in anyway... not after the things you've done.
How to prepare
Have a Discord account (which is free) and join the game server. An understanding of the 5th edition Vampire: the Masquerade rules is helpful but also not necessary.
What I provide
Everything else! I have rules, character art, maps, and even some background music to help set the mood.
I host a one-on-one Session 0 to cover the following: 1. Introductions 2. Safety tools for the game 3. Scenario overview 4. House rules 5. Character creation / modification for those who don't want to use the pre-generated characters. To ensure that the game is a good fit for you and your schedule, your first week in the story is free. Communication is a process, so expect a pregame check-in to make sure everyone is in a good headspace for the session and a quick debrief to catch any concerns or immediate feedback at the end. The Discord channel is also open between sessions to help set conditions for the table.
Safety tools used
- Lines and Veils
- Session 0
- Stars and Wishes
- X, N, and O Cards
How will character creation work
I can provide gender-neutral starter characters upon request that conform to the V5 ruleset for character creation. Otherwise I am happy to walk you through character creation one-on-one at your convenience. If you prefer to bring a character to the table then that is also fine, but I will do a bench audit of the sheet before it is allowed into play. For the narrative stakes of the adventure it's important for all PCs to have a strong reason to be in D.C., but I am happy to collaborate on weaving in your backstory to the main plotline.
