Shadows of the Ivory Tower

Chicago is, well, Chicago. From a Kindred standpoint though, things can be simplified slightly. A little more than one hundred vampire call Chicago home, despite new Fledglings only popping up in the past fifteen years with the death of the previous Prince with the end of his ban on the Embrace. Vampires through the North America have used the city as a proto waystation whenever the creatures decide to travel, however rare that might be. It’s been both the stablest and valuable center of Camarilla activity in the United States since Chicago stopped being a swamp, with it’s rule remaining consistent through the Great Chicago Fire, to the death of three Princes, and numerous Sabbat invasions and Anarch uprisings. But no what your sires and the Elders say one thing there is only one universal truth in this world. Things always change.

Prince Lodin’s death has left a large hole in the Chicago’s power structure. Ever since then the city has only pretended to have a Prince, with the divided, partisan Primogen Council just using Prince Harrel as a puppet. With nothing actually resembling a powerful central executive power in the city and no check on petty, divisive Clan squabbling is quickly eroding the united Camarilla front. Lupines, the Sabbat, Anarchs, and even independent Clans like the Giovanni influence has grown greatly within the city, with a couple even holding domains in the city proper. It is a dangerous time in Chicago, but danger breeds opportunity.
