SAVANNAH: THE CITY OF FORGOTTEN FATES

CityofForgottenFates.jpg

Savannah, Georgia is a city controlled by the Camarilla. For over 150 years, Savannah has been a closed domain. Mistrust and vulnerability spiraled out of control after a Kindred internecine conflict that occurred beneath the Masquerade during the the mortal’s Civil War, leading the Malkavian Prince, Prince Wenlock, to politically wall off his city, preventing new Kindred from settling. Savannah has spent a century and half isolated, its residents growing comfortably introverted, all the while rumors and whispers gathering about the strange case of the City of Forgotten Fates.

Now, after the fading of the Red Star, Savannah has once again opened itself to the outside world. Are they related, or just coincidence? What kind of Kindred comes to try to make her home in such an enclave. How will the longtime natives react to change, something they haven’t seen in over a century?

IMPORTANT LOCATIONS

  • Elysia
The Pirates' House
PiratesHouseSavannah.jpg
East Broad Street
Savannah, GA 31401
The Pirates' House was built on the east side of James Oglethorpe's original plan of the city of Savannah. A small building which later became the starting structure of the Pirates' House was built in 1734 to house the gardener who worked there. This building was deemed the Herb House and is said to be the oldest building in the state of Georgia. In 1754, The Herb House was transformed into an Inn and tavern for seaman visiting from abroad.
The Pirates' House is home to some rare early edition pages of Treasure Island, by Robert Louis Stevenson. The pages can be seen hanging on the walls of the Captain's room and the Treasure room in the Pirates' House. It is said that Captain Flint, a pirate mentioned in the book, died in the upstairs bedroom at the Pirate's House and that Flint haunts the building to this day.
The Pirates' House Elysium has a separate entrance from the current restaurant accommodating ground and upper levels of the building. One could say, Elysium is underground.


The Owens-Thomas House

Abercorn Street
Savannah, GA 31401
The Owens-Thomas House is considered by architectural historians to be one of the finest examples of English Regency architecture in America. Inspired by classical antiquity, this style of architecture takes its name from England’s King George IV, who ruled as Prince Regent from 1811 to 1820.
The house was designed by the young English architect William Jay (1792-1837), one of the first professionally-trained architects practicing in the United States. The elegant residence was built from 1816-1819 for cotton merchant and banker Richard Richardson and his wife Frances Bolton.
The Owens-Thomas House Elysium has been in kindred court service since the early nineteenth century thanks to a transfer of ownership.
