Description of Venue: Columbus has been a city in a state of near constant tension or conflict. The sabbot have almost constantly had a presence in the city even after the Camerilla pushed them across the river to Phenix City. The city is currently under Camerilla control though there are small groups of other factions present. However though an uneasy truce exists not everyone is content to let such old and deep grudges go, and while the war has moved to a political court there are more sinister forces at work.
