Does anyone want to read any of the other groups storylines or do you guys prefer to keep it secret?

None relate to the others thus far, so nothing would be spoiled?

I always like reading other threads. In this game would love to read the Beast thread since I have yet to play the that version of CoD. I think it would be insightful, but if not it is not a deal breaker.

Still looking around and interested. I've yet to do anything to seriously impact my character's sanity. Ain't a game until I do that at least once. :P

So... I feel like I'm having a tough time deciding what to do. I have at least 1 player from each of the 3 main groups that haven't logged in for weeks now.

I want to push forward, but I really wasn't expecting to have to ghost that many players.

Not sure how to proceed.

There are always gonna be drop outs.


Are the groups big enough to go on without them?

I think so; but a couple of players are long-time players (Laura and Jill) and the other gave a heads up they'd be busy for the next month or so (Philemon)

I'm going to be traveling for the next two weeks, which will cut into my post time.

You know me though, I'm always lurking somewhere.  Curious to see what I missed with that botched perception role.

Real life does rear its ugly head.

Maybe you should do a mix of different players on a separate mission that happen to come across each other.

Cross pollination may be an option though depends on the overall plan. Finding out you're not alone in the city will certainly get kindred hackles up.

I am still here! Just got slammed with work and preparation for vacation this week so I wasn't able to do more than check in to see if my turn had come up yet.

Hey everyone, Ninjar is back from Torpor!

Just backed the Cults of the Blood Gods kickstarter and am looking for a V:5 game to try out the new rules/setting.

If I can put the time in this winter and I like the new system; I may resurrect this game as a Cleveland by Night V:5 setting.

I know Iím as flaky as an 2000 year old methuselah, but I like you guys and really hope youíre all still posting out there.

Regardless; I just wanted to drop in and say hey to anyone still around!

Hello! I was a lurker for this game, but got re-added recently

As noted before, I have an interest in V5 as well, so I'm interested in the Storyteller's resurrection of Cleveland. Figured I'd express my interest.

I can vouch for Serge.

They were a regular in Detroit for years, and I play a number of games with them these days.

Hey guys. I posted some basic stuff and a new Intro for the campaign.

For my long time players, some of this meta-plot should sound familiar, even if it was from a different system.




Cleveland Ohio. Once a booming manufacturing and industrial center for the Midwest and Great Lakes region has fallen into a spiral of economic and moral decay. Crime is rampant and the police and government has been plagued with corruption for decades. Most of the wealth has left the city interior choosing to move out into the surrounding suburbs, leaving behind an empty shell of a city. People and families still call the city home, but other darker creatures also consider the city their home.



The Kindred political landscape of Cleveland was unique among the domains of the United States. In 1966 under the cover of the famous Hough race riots, a powerful Gangrel Elder named Vassilis Demetriou supposedly assassinated the reigning Prince and turned Cleveland into an Anarch stronghold. With the backing of a booming Setite and Giovanni population, Vassilis swept the city clean of all Camarilla and Sabbat influences and declared himself the Baron.

The new Baron ran the city with an iron fist and even more powerful tongue, keeping the leadership of the outlawed sects from even bothering with the city. With no help from the outside, those belonging to the other factions gathered in secret, but often were the victims of raids, leading to scores of Final Deaths.

But, Demetriou's rule wouldn't last long into the 21st century.

It was less than fifty years before the return of the once-thought-dead Prince and her supporters would turn the city in total chaos. The Baron was destroyed and the leaders of his Anarch movement were hunted. The hidden underground collection of disbanded sects came out of the shadows only to set the city on fire once again. After months of open warfare, on Devil's Night 2004 all contact from any and all Kindred in the city went quiet.

Since then, it has been complete silence from within the city, save for a single message on a SchreckNET forum from a long thought destroyed Nosferatu child. It read:

I watched all of my friends and enemies die tonight. I thought I escaped, but they tracked me back here. They shouldn't have been able to enter here, but I can hear them moving closer. Stay away from this city, everything and everyone vanishes eventually.

Since that transmission in 2004, the neighboring Kindred domains have sent several scouts and emissaries to the city to try and reestablish contact and investigate. None have returned. After giving up and declaring Cleveland a no-Kindred land; recent Emissaries began to arrive in the surrounding cities to announce a new Kindred Baron has laid claim to Cleveland, proclaiming the city once again as an Anarch stronghold.

The new Baron even claimed to be a Childe of Vassilis Demetriou. Still unsure about this news and looking for explanations for those sent to Cleveland and never returned; local Princes have decided to send a group of newly embraced Progeny to answer the call. Can this new Coterie solve the mystery of what truly happened on that Devil's Night and every night since or will they Vanish like the rest?

I'd be inclined to give things a shot again. Not quite up to full speed with the v:5 system but grasp enough to get by lol.

Yay A. I am just getting into the setting stuff right now. Don't even have my books yet, but they should be coming soon.

I borrowed the character creation and other info from another game on here, but will update it once I get my books.

Feel free to send me your character names in your PM's and I will change them from the generic ones I made for you guys.

So far weíve got two solid concepts. A tech savvy information broker and a club owning entrepreneur.

Iíve posted a bunch of material, for those of us not familiar with the new system (myself included) to look over for the next couple of weeks. I also have the beginnings of several ideas for the setting in general.

I made some changes to the into timeline to fit better with the V:tM meta-plot.
