WHO WE ARE
Erebos: House of Darkness is a fandom RP, based on White Wolf's 'Vampire the Masquerade' tabletop game. It has been modified (and simplified) to fit a play-by-post environment You need not have played the tabletop game to participate, as all the information you need is found right on the site. Should you ever have more questions about anything not stated or explained, feel free to ask by shooting one of our Storytellers a Private Message at any time.
The current setting of Erebos is loosely based around the Classic World of Darkness "modern nights". It takes place in 2020, following an Alternate Timeline of Events. The Sects of Old (Camarilla, Sabbat, Anarchs, etc.) are gone and there are 'new players in town.' After the ashes of the former have settled, 3 new dominant factions have arisen: Erebos, Maledictus and Concordia. Both Jyhad and Gehenna are nowhere in sight - and thus there are no worries or fear of overpowered Antediluvians, Werewolves, Mages, Hunters - looming anywhere near.
Rising up among the lush vineyards of Napa Valley, rigid glass and steel spires cast long shadows across the bustling metropolis . The crowded city provides refuge for more than three million people who live out their existence with their eyes firmly fixed on their very own gleaming glass pinnacle. These unwitting pawns do not dare to pause for a moment to stop and look – look down murky alleyways and through dimly lit streets. There, the creatures of darkness wage an unseen war of subterfuge and political intrigue against their friends and foes using both man and monster alike to fuel their tenacious, eternal struggle for domination and survival.
