Under the Bright Lights of Vegas
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a world where Vampires1
and all those other mythical beings walk along side regular Human's? What would you do if these beings where not only known to the world, but where legalized citizens? These are the type of questions that this game will center around.
Las Vegas is usually a well oiled machine, a place filled bursting at it's seams with sin and decadence. But what many people don't see is that underneath the lights and glitz that is associated with this oasis that is known at Las Vegas, there's an underbelly of preternatural activity. The city is firmly controlled by the Master Vampire, and so far it's ran smoothly, with only the occasional bumps and challenges that could be expected to plague such a city.
But lately something has threatened the peace that has enveloped the city. The number of newly turned is startling, threatening to overwhelm the cities population. The fact that a majority of these newly turned are minors only adds to the problem, since it's a death sentence offense. So with the threat of law enforcement intervening, something must be done. But what? And who can be behind such an act?
So, in case you haven't noticed yet, this game idea is loosely based on the Anita Blake series. I'm staying away from the cannon characters and the city the books focus on, and the only thing from the books this game would be focusing on would be the preternatural6
It'll be modern but AU at the same time. The choice of who and what you are is yours, but choose wisely. The Vampires are kept in check by the Master of Las Vegas. The Tigers are the Masters Animal to call, and as such the were-tigers5
can be directly controlled by their Queen and the Master himself. The other Were's in the city live in small groups, and mainly keep to themselves, but they too live under the rule of the Master. There are also animators, vaudun priests and necromancers, that focus on raising zombies. In this game there will be quiet a few positions that can be filled, all these positions will be listed for your perusal. I plan on this game to be slow paced, so if you need a fast moving game, this probably wont be for you. You do not
need to have read the books to participate in this game.
What do we call all the different Were groups?
I got this information from the anita Wiki, so it might be incorrect. If it is, please tell me so I can fix it. Also from what I can find, most if not all groups have a special name per localized group. In the books, the streak in vegas was called the white clan.
Were : Title/name of the actual were group
Tigers : Streak/The white clan
Lion : Pride
Leopard : Pard
Rat : Rodere
Hyena : Clan
Wolf : Pack
Arc'sFirst Arc: Current

The term preternatural refers to any beings or the skills possessed by these beings that are beyond the natural human scope, typically of a magical or divine origin. The term is often used interchangeably or in conjunction with the words: 'Supernatural' and 'Metaphysical'. 7
A Pomme de Sang can be a human, lycanthrope, Fey, or magical creature such as swanmane or necromancer. They are the Masters main food source, and as such, being a Pomme de Sang is a position of great honor. They can also be the main servant of the Weretiger.8
