The Domain of New York City

“The master's tools will never dismantle the master's house”

Audre Lorde

In the tombs of granite towers the prince walks in a dream, seeking only darkness. Dysfunction and corruption carpet the cold hollow floors. Soon his reign shall end and the jackals in the shadows will feast on the bones of his empire. Once weak enemies will grow, new empires will rise and but yet the night shall continue. Who shall replace the crown, will the alliance that keeps the peace crumble. The very jewel of the Camarilla will either shine or shatter.

For three solid centuries the city had been ruled by Prince Čerik Maraslav, his court once vibrant is now in dismay and he has announced he is abandoning his post – with no reason given. It is known that the he intends to Call the Seasons at the moment of his abdication leaving every position of authority in the city open. As his power recedes Anarchs, the Independents and the Sabbat have openly moved into the city staking out pieces of his crumbling kingdom.
