Prequel: Terra Obscura
The Great War is over, but death has not stopped its grim advance.
Through the fields of France, across the plains of America and in the Island fortress that is the United Kingdom a new wave of terror stalks the remaining populations.
An invisible killer, a disease that at first seemed so innocuous strikes out.
This time it is not just the mortal population which suffer.
The Kindred who have always been immune to the frailties of mankind has also fallen afoul of this strange and deadly plague. As the bodies pile up, for many there is no choice but to flee to safer lands.
Australia, the newly minted commonwealth, beckons those who seek escape... But are the tales of this new land too good to be true?
Set in 1919, the Prequel is a 3 session game following recent vampiric refugees to Melbourne. Captain Peter Hunter, the Prince of Melbourne, has allowed a number of Kindred into his city. They left their home countries to escape the Spanish Flu, a devastating pandemic that had spread to Kindred as well as Kine.
Player characters must be new arrivals to Melbourne, having arrived within a month, and should come from a country that the Spanish Flu has affected. They will have no territory besides temporary lodgings, no position within mortal Melbourne, and limited belongings. Upon reaching Melbourne, they learn they are not to leave it via land.
The final session of the prequel will be on Friday 8th December.
Chronicle 1: 1923
The 1919 arrivals have established themselves in the city.
Players may continue the same characters they played in the prequel, or begin new ones.
Characters who are introduced in this chronicle do not have to be from a foreign country. If they're from Melbourne, they should be the newly embraced childer of an established PC or NPC.
