Dearly Departed

The Coming War

While feeding, Ashton is handed a note by a dominated mortal asking him to bring “food” to the cathedral. The group decided to use Cassie as bait and heads up to the haven. The occupant is an individual named Kirkland, a Malkavian Anarch who is in dire need of blood and willing to exchange secrets for it. The group calls, the Sheriff, Capone, who directs them to the Succubus club for the meeting.

At the club, Cassie has a drink poured on her and hears a group of people laughing at her. She challenges them only to find they were laughing at an Aflac commercial.

The group tells the Sheriff about the Anarach and they’re assured that it will be looked into.

After the meeting Cassie gets a call from a former investor and asks for his help. His career is in shambles and he is ready to go murder his rival, she meets him and sets up a hotel for him to stay at.

Shortly there after the group gets a call about an emergency Elysium, once there it is revealed that the church that the Anarch was hiding in had been burned to the ground. The Prince rejoices over the fall of the last anarch in Chicago.

After the Elysium the gang is almost mowed down by an oncoming car, as the car passes they hear a laugh trailing behind and find the Sheriff dead. By the dawn most of the clan Primogens are dead, minus Inyaga.

Cassie comes home to find her house ransacked and one of her retainers dead.

Ellie finds a safe house with her Nosferatu friend, Luther.

The next night the group meets to recount their losses. 47 Kindred have been killed and 9 remain in the city. After trying to make sense of it all another auto dialer goes out to the remaining Kindred of the city.

Chicago has fallen.


11pm. Group is tasked to seek out Prince Penzl and deliver a package from Lodin. They’re told Elysium is at the Empress Theatre. They find the Empress Theatre empty and not in use.

Cassie causes Candace, the prince’s ghoul to kill herself. Upon searching Candace’s wallet, the group finds a slip of paper with a note from VP, listing the new elysium venue.

The group finds the new Elysium and all the Camarilla of Milwaukee dead. And a group of Sabbat in the middle of eating the members of the Cam.

A brief fight ensues, with Cassie diablerizing one of the Lasombra, 3 Black Spiral Dancers show up and escort the last alert member of the Sabbat to safety.

The group heads back to Chicago at the bidding of the Prince. They report in and are told to meet with the Prince’s agent tomorrow night at the Succubus club.

Upon arriving outside the club, the group is met by a beggar asking for money, as Cassie is handing the old man some money, he drops it and runs away screaming about demons in the city.

Once inside the club, the group sits in a table against the far corner of the wall. A waitress comes by and delivers envelopes and drinks to everyone present, as she leaves, she accidentally drops a glass of liquid all over Cassie.

The waitress comes back and Identifies herself as the Prince’s agent and tells the group they need volunteers to infiltrate the anarchs, and report back to the prince. The party agrees and the waitress leaves.

A few minutes later there is loud scream and one of the cities’ Nosferatu has had they’re obfuscate broken, upon witnessing the sight a girl faints and there is mass panic. Cassie “helps” the fallen girl and calls 911.

Ashton gets a call from the Prince saying their cover has been blown and he needs them to meet at his manse right away.

Ellie finds a back room and over hears the Nosfertatu, Elizabeta, being berated by what sounds like the waitress. Then hears the waitress say “When I rule this city, that would never be allowed”

The group get back together and head to the Prince’s manse, where they are given the name of 3 contacts. Tyler, Maureeen O’Leary, and Inyanga and are told to find reinforcements for the coming war on Chicago. There is a knock on the door, and the Prince brings in and introduces his “dearest love” Marie. Marie is also the waitress.

The group call Inyanga and Tyler and they agree to help search. They then head to the Rehabilitation Center that Maureen calls home.

They meet with Maureen, and are introduced to “Son” who seems to be a polite fellow, until he starts pulling the legs off a spider. Son and Maureen agree that they will contact people who could be good for the cause. And the group heads out for the night.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
