Two thousand years ago, the Roman armies crossed the channel. They brought with them the roads, bathhouses forts and politics we still remember them for today. But they brought something else with them to this beautiful island. Something darker, something more dangerous. They brought with them the undead.
The kindred guided the history of the isles ever since. Steering the course of mankind to suit their dark needs. All throughout the land, their machinations can be seen to the observant spectator, but nowhere as clearly as in the capital.
London has been the battleground of hefty clan warfare for a thousand years. Hidden in the shadows the Vampires played their pawns against each other, and neither Kine nor Kindred nor any supernatural has ever been fully safe in this damned city. Nearly 70 years ago, during the second world war, a small coterie of powerful vampires made a daring grab for power and succeeded. They managed to get those with real power to come together, if only out of fear of the new power. The court of Londinium was formed, and the greater London area was divided up into eight principalities, each with their own Prince. Lording over these Princes is Queen Anne, a very old and powerful Ventrue. Assisted by yher coterie she maintains the peace, and ensures the sanctity of the masquerade. This is no easy task though in a city divided along clan, territory and a myriad of other lines. And then there's the sabbat barking at the gates.[
And now, there's the Olympics just around the corner
Darkness over London is a Vampire the Masquerade chronicle set in London in 2012. It is a dark horror/mystery game with many victorian and edwardian elements. It is a camarilla focussed campaign, but a limited number of independents are permitted. I was thinking of having players start at Ancillae level, as the blood stills runs thick in Europe. However if the group prefers another power level this is open for discussion.
I'm not really looking to waste my time adjudicating actions and mediating player arguments, so I want to give players a lot of control, and am looking for people who can handle that. If you're interested please leave your character concept here. I'll be using the V:tM revised edition As stated above I'd prefer Camarilla clan vampires, but I'm open to others as long as you have a good concept.
