Europe has been ruled by the vampiric nobility for centuries. The lower orders have been forced to live a near nocturnal existence to serve their masters, the unskilled raised as cattle, those with talents working for the glory of the undead. Any who resist are swiftly punished, and their tattered corpses hung from bridges as a lesson to all.
But the Royals of France have been weakened by decades of gluttony, the recent wars in the Americas and the eruption of an Icelandic volcano that has plunged Europe into years of harsh winters and merge harvests.
For the first time, there is an organised resistance. There are uneasy truces cropping up between ordinary humans, witches, fae-touched and the loup garou. But the Royals will not give up their power without a fight, and if they win they will drown all of Europe in blood.
Hey guys, this is my first time narrating so please be gentle.
I just have a few guidelines for anyone who wants to play:
-Third person past tense in writing please.
-Play nice with others - no double posting, no taking control of anyone else’s character, don’t grab all the asset cards, respect the story logic and pay attention to what others have written.
-If you need a NPC relating to your character - lover, family, mentor etc, just let me know in the comments. I’d like to keep extras to a minimum but will not veto them if they’re integral to character development.
-Take your time. I have too many commitments for a fast game so feel free to ponder and give us your best quality writing when you post.
-Since this is alternative history the dates and events do not have to be spot on, in fact they might completely diverge depending on how your characters develop the tale, but please use the tropes of age - big hair, big skirts and big teeth. Ladies, feel free to stick your characters in trousers, but it will be a radical act.
-No modern slang guys, I’m not expecting you to all learn old French, but give it a historical flare.
-Also, as this is a story of warring factions I may have scenes that only apply to couple of players. I’ll try and keep them limited, but if there’re necessary I’ll make it clear who’s involved within the narration.
