White Wolf presents
A Nordic larp about vampires
In 1492, the Torah, holy book of the Jews, is printed for the first time, and in Rome, the infamous Rodrigo Borgia is elected Pope by a unanimous vote. The Moors have just been driven out of Granada, and the kingdom of Aragon has expelled Jews from eastern Spain and Sicily. Columbus has just returned from his voyage to America, and a new world has been opened up to Christian Europeans.
For the Kindred, this is a time of darkness and desperation. The Catholic Inquistion has been incredibly succesful in hunting down the unliving, and their stakes and bonfires have claimed the Final Death of 3/4 of the vampires.
It is a time of desperation and fear among the powerful elders of the night. Some say that the only thing keeping the Inquistion just somewhat at bay is that the Catholic church is heavily infiltrated by clan Lasombra. Others believe that the Lasombra are using the Inquistion as a tool to strike at their enemies.
Whatever the vampires present at the Convention might believe, they know that the next few days will shape the centuries to come.
