Chronicles of Darkness - 2.0
A Brief City History
The court and domain of Brisbane grew. and as they grew in numbers and political power they waned in what made them vampires. they lost the instinct of knowing when they were the hunted, and they lost the edge of a true predator. They grew indulgent, over feeding and breaking the masquerade when is suited them. bringing unwanted attention without even knowing it. So when the Iscariot came with "cleansing flame and blade!." they didn't stand a chance.
Hunters arrived and tracked them in secret locating Elysium and havens across the city over several months The kindred did not see those who tracked them, and then in a single day over 90% kindred of Brisbane met their final death. They came fast swift and strong against all the supernaturals in Brisbane. Those they did not kill were the lowest of the low, who ran off and didn't come back for fear of the true death. Even the necropolis was no protection.
As is stands now:
Present Day: Brisbane is quiet, as quiet as a capital city can be. There are no more supernaturals that people are aware of left in the city, or those that are there have hidden themselves as to not draw the attention of watchful eyes left in the city. As kindred return to the city, they know not what hunters remain.

Character Creation Guidelines
Here you will find various fun things to help you design a PC for play in the sanctioned chronicle. We encourage well thought out concepts which create story and are inclusive and active in nature. The ST's and other players would love to hear about your ideas and you never know how your idea may take on a life of its own and suddenly plot is born! Why write a solitary character when you could have an entire family?
Concepts which are disruptive are not necesarily discouraged, although please DON'T write in your background that you are a Diablerist/Pure Spy/Servant of the Abyss unless you don't mind getting caught and whacked by PC's.
Character Development Document This document has a list of short answer questions that are designed to help you refine you concept and bring to life your new persona. You don't have to use it all, but there are some damn fine ideas and questions in it. The more work you put in the more you get out!
Due to the work involved with completing this document, you will get extra XP awarded to the character you complete it for.
This is not to say you must be a master wordsmith, rather attention to detail and consideration of a fully rounded persona rather than a 2D Archetype. Remember no one is good at everything and characters with flaws are much more interesting than a perfect "ubermench".
If you would like your character to have visited Brisbane or be a part of its history this is welcomed and even encouraged. Please contact the VST with your ideas and suggestions and we'll work to make your character part of our history. There are many roles and "events" which would be far more entertaining if they were populated by player characters. If you wish to have a background link with one of the characters listed here, don't hesitate to contact the player and/or the VST. The aim here is to bring the city to life and create fun inter-character links world wide. There are a couple of caveats.
- 1. What do you want/need and why ?
- 2. How will this come into game and create fun?
There's not much point to it, if it's hidden. What's the point of painting a picture then hiding it. The aim is to create fun plot and character driven interactions for our chronicle either now or in the future.
The VST, DST and players welcome you to approach us and offer suggestions to improve and enrich the chronicle for all of us.
