City Timeline


1636Springfield is settled by William Pynchon and eleven other families.
1639The Ventrue Invictus Immanuel arrives in Springfield and claims the Pioneer Valley as his Domain. He brings two of his childer with him.
1643A pack of Pocumtuck-born kindred come into Springfield looking to claim the area surrounding Mount Tom as their own. The Prince grants them this request.
1645The land known as Nonotuck (now Northampton) is bought from the native inhabitants by English settlers. The native kindred are furious at being surrounded by the English, and demand recompense, claiming that one of the Prince’s childer is responsible. The Prince arranges a duel between one of the natives (who have largely joined the Circle of the Crone) and his childe, the Acolyte is killed, but the Prince grants The Circle of the Crone regency over the hill towns to the west of Springfield. This area is still controlled by them today.
1651Mary Parsons is acquitted in the first of her three witchcraft accusations.
1675 through 1676King Phillip’s War: this war was used as a cover for an aggressive push by the Acolytes to assert control over the domain. Prince Immanuel was able to hold them back and maintain control.
1704Deerfield Massacre- The town of Deerfield is massacred.
1754 through 1763Seven Years War: Mages make their presence known in Springfield for the first time by participating in this war on the side of the French.
1786Shays’s Rebellion acts as a convenient cover to allow a VII coterie to infiltrate and attack the city of Springfield. Two of the Prince’s childer are slain in the battle. Immanuel is brought to torpor in the battle, but in the ensuing aftermath his body is not found. Victoria Northrop, an Ordo Dracul, becomes Prince with the blessing of Immanuel’s former Seneschal.
1840 through 1930The Great Immigration: Hundreds of thousands of mortals flock to the Pioneer Valley and the surrounding areas. Along with them come a number of Kindred, including members of the fledgling Carthian Movement.
1855Prince Northrop steps down as prince, giving the Princedom to her Sherriff Eduardo Lucani, a Lance. He grants her domain over the developing city of Chicopee.
1870Prince Lucani is forced to leave office after a scandal threatens to cause him to be excommunicated from the Lance. An upstart Neonate Carthian by the name of Connor Finney steps into the Princedom (now called Director) and declares that his reign will be a time of prosperity for all kindred in the domain.
1920After decades of political maneuvering, the Commonwealth Charter is adopted and Director Finney is elected the first Premier.
1929With the stock market crash Finney finds many of his resources are in tatters. He finds himself on the wrong end of a deal which removes him from office and places an Ordo named Derrick in his place. The Charter is further codified during Derrick’s reign.
1942 (November)Premier Derrick is found dead in his haven. Leadership of the Commonwealth is inconsistent and no significant leaders emerge for 5 decades.
1991With the breach of The Unholy, the small Invictus coterie in Springfield attempt a coup against the Commonwealth government. This period is known as The Pioneer War
1991 through 1994The Pioneer War...
1991 (December)The Battle of the North End - A group of four VII sweep into Western Mass causing great havoc as they do. The Kindred forces of the Commonwealth meet them in the North End of Springfield as they are moving to attack the Monarch Elysium. The battle is very bloody, and was it not for the fact that this area of town is heavily controlled by very violent mortal gangs the masquerade would have been in tatters. During this battle many of the city’s eldest kindred lost their unlives. Two of the five Councillors are killed. It is during this attack that the coup begins, rumor has it that one of the Councillors killed was actually murdered by the Invictus.
1994 (October)The Battle of Holyoke - The Commonwealth’s forces were in great disarray after a number of pyrrhic victories against the Invictus and their Crone allies. Eduardo Lucani convinces the Lancea to join the fighting en masse on the side of the Commonwealth, in a feat of tactical genius, the reinvigorated forces cause the Invictus and their allies to retreat to Holyoke and hide in order to regroup and restart the attack. Lucani unites the disparate factions in Springfield and made an attack on the Invictus stronghold in Holyoke. Of the twelve kindred that walked into that warehouse, ten survived, and everyone of them will tell you that it is only because of Lucani’s leadership and tactics. The two remaining enemies, both Crone, lay themselves at the mercy of the Commonwealth.

The two remaining enemies, both Crone, lay themselves at the mercy of the Commonwealth.

With the city’s population weary and looking for hope, the remaining Kindred of Springfield unite behind a reluctant Eduardo Lucani, hero of the Battle of Holyoke. He declines the position of Premier instead recommending that Louis Marchon, a Mekhet Carthian, take the position.

Marchon declares that for service to the domain, Lucani will be given downtown Springfield as his domain. Though this is a very prime domain, most of the city’s kindred respect the decree and accept his guidance on the rest of the city of Springfield Proper also.
2012 (January)A mysterious government group begins to put chemicals in the tap water that interact with the vitae in an attempt to make it almost impossible for vampires to feed. The kindred population is decimated before the chemical is detected. Thanks to a cooperative effort between the Ordo Dracul and Commonwealth Leadership, the effects were mitigated. A chemical countermeasure is discovered by the Ordo, and secretly implemented by the Carthian Movement, meanwhile, a new set of feeding Laws deceive the hunter group into thinking the chemicals had full effect.
2012 (December 21)REDACTED attack is weathered but over half of the domain is killed. REDACTED hunters have taken root in the area.
2013 (January)Seeing the Global aftermath of The Icarus Event, the Commonwealth is declared a Cloister, and all non-kindred are banned from its borders.
2017Marchon goes missing under mysterious circumstances. The Council votes 3-1 to declare that his disappearance is related to the rumored Mages to the north. A young Daeva Invictus takes his place on the Council and begins working on projects to improve Holyoke as penance for her Covenant’s role in the Pioneer War.
2018 (August)Premier Collette Durand declares a ballroom and suite on the top floor of the MGM Springfield Tower as a second Elysium in the city. Lucani gives the Casino part of his territory back to the Commonwealth so that it can be considered The Rack in Springfield.
2019 (February)The Council declares that in order to protect the Commonwealth from Hunters and prevent the Strix from coming all members must begin building and fortifying networks in the human world. They pass an amendment to the Charter that states that on the 25th anniversary of the Battle of Holyoke spheres of influence will be given to kindred who are able to demonstrate prowess in them.

Discord Policy can be found in detail here: Domain Discord Policy

Our domain hosts a Discord server for OOC chatting and Soft RP. The enforcement of Soft RP in these chats is taken very seriously. The ST team will not be portraying NPCs in the rooms and all interactions on Discord are strictly optional. We host this chat server in order to allow players to flesh out their characters and have meaningful character interaction scenes which there may not be time for at game. A good use of this medium would be to flesh out how two characters interact. Non-Locals will be allowed to join this server if they are frequent visitors to our games, or if they are invited by another PC, but their IC justification for joining must accompany a Soft RP Proxy to the VST and DST. For players with a PC attached to a VSS in our Domain, you may join the Discord server by emailing the DST (sunderedlands.dst@gmail.com) or the DC (sunderedlands.dc@gmail.com) in order to request an invite.
