In 1700, witch trials in the Roanoke Valley culminate in the deaths of 13 and Agatha's curse on those responsible.
The New River Valley went through a subsequent quiet period. In the 1850s, Big Lick becomes a bona fide town, with railroads crossing through Roanoke daily, it became a central location for humans. With the increased trade and traffic, kindred begin to return to the valley, though elders remain wary of the curse. In 1900, with a larger group of kindred, Prince Io (NPC) officially claims Praxis of the NRV and the Camarilla presence is strengthened. Throughout the century, Prince Io expands the Cam territory, establishes feeding territories, and holds regular court. In 2005, the Red Star event begins.
In 2008, Prince Io's retainer, Eddy, kills him in a fit brought on by a Wraith attached to the Prince. Nosferatu Prince Wren Hollis claims Praxis, and continues to hold the Camarilla stronghold.
