Erebos: House of Darkness

Erebos is a role-playing game based on White Wolf's very own 'Vampire the Masquerade: 20th Anniversary Edition'. Set in the modern nights era, in our very own fictional New Babylon situated in the heart of the Napa Valley, players may craft their characters and journey through
the World of Darkness as they see fit, and over the Internet rather than seated around a table.

Register today to join us and craft a character that will grow, and journey through New Babylon
(or around the world if that is your desire.) As you prosper in this adventure, we hope you enjoy
your stay at Erebos and become a vibrant part of our friendly community!

The squeal of tires could be heard as the vehicles sped away from The Amaranthine and headed for the outskirts of the city. Wounded men and women littered the floor of the truck beds, blood puddling and dripping from the rear of the vehicles as they sped through the darkened streets of New Babylon. On they raced, soon leaving the city proper and ending up at the Holy Valley Monastery. Once there, the trucks skidded to a halt and the backs were dropped. Monks in their habits rushed to the back of the trucks with litters, helping the wounded within. Those that didn't survive the trip back to their base of operations were taken to the barn. A funeral mass would be held for them the next morning.

Marshall Stephen Tieg, leader of the Brotherhood's Martial contingent, was sitting to one side as he watched his brothers and sisters being worked on. He had a monk working stitching up a knife wound in his abdomen. Luckily it hadn't shredded his large intestine, as the blade was a short one. His heart was heavy, as too many of his soldiers were simply having sheets pulled up over them. The casualty rate was disastrous: 40%, if not higher. There wasn't a single person that had escaped that disaster at The Amaranthine this night without injury. He was watching a young woman - barely 25 years of age - have a sheet draped over her lifeless face when David came up behind him.

"Stephen, how bad?" His rich, smooth voice spearing into Stephen's soul.

"Too many, Grand Master." The monk finished with Stephen's wound and moved on to help the others. David walked up, putting a hand on Stephen's shoulder. "Come now Stephen, mistakes happen. We'll identify what went wrong, correct our procedures, then try again."

Stephen got up angrily, grabbing his shirt to put it back on. "I already know what went wrong! Some other sucker heads decided to hit the party at the same time as us. And not to mention some of those female hunters Erasmus mentioned showed up. I thought they weren't even in the city yet. ERASMUS!"

The Marshall yelled and the Commander of their intelligence division came running over from where his laptop was setup. "Damn Steve, you alright?" He didn't get to say anything further as the Marshall jammed his finger in his chest. "Where the fuck did those girls come from? I watched one of my guys get a hole blown in his chest from a .50 cal rifle. That's not something you'd find from a group 'just getting into town'. What the fuck is going on? Where's your intel?!"

Erasmus quailed under the onslaught from the Marshall. Strangely David just stood back, his hands behind his back. "I told you, my intel here is spotty. We're having trouble getting informants in the city. My guy from the slums said something might have been up about the party, but he didn't go into details. He's here now if you want to talk to him."

Erasmus indicated a shifty looking character that seemed to be entirely too interested in what was happening in the monastery than providing intelligence - if he had any at all. David walked over to the man with Stephen at his side. "Young man, you're our friend in St. Francis' Village?" The man just smiled crookedly, his teeth stained yellow and broken. "Yes sir. I have eyes everywhere and see all. It's why your man relies upon me for information."

David simply nodded, "Very well then. If you see all, then why didn't you see this attack coming?" The man immediately started dodging. "Well you see, the vamps have St. Francis all locked up. They ain't those high and mighty vamps either. No sir, not the ones that live in the city proper. No sir, these ones are a little more wild, and a little more disorganized."

David continued nodding, making sounds like he was listening to what the man was saying. "Interesting. And you know all this how?"

The man shrugged. "I just know things. I see things, speak to people that hear other things. Eventually things get back to me, and I share that information with your man." He gestured to Erasmus.

David just smiled, looking the man over, his eyes taking in his apparel and look. "Which we pay you a modest fee for, correct? I believe it was $500 for the information leading to our assault on the hotel tonight, correct?"

The man smiled again. "Yes sir. I still have it, right here in my pocket too."

David smiled again. "Oh, that's perfect." He pulled his hands out from behind his back and was holding a Glock 21. He shot the informant in the stomach, causing the man to drop to the floor, squealing in pain. David walked up to the man, who was trying to ask why when David put two more in his chest, then one in his head. Turning back towards Stephen and Erasmus, he replaced the gun in his back holster.

"No one that's been paid $500 for information can afford $2000 Tom Ford Oxfords."

The two men looked behind David, at the man's shoes. The expensive shoes were clearly visible now that his pants weren't hiding them.

"He was on someone's take. I want to find out whose. Erasmus, dig into his personal history. His contacts, his associates, his finances. Everything you can on him. Stephen, we need you to continue training our men. Recruit more from the pious of this city. Let them know that the Lord's Vengeance has come to New Babylon, and we will burn the corruption from this city, starting with the demons that stalk the night, and all who associate with them. Now go."

The two men left David, who went over to one of his soldiers and knelt down. The young man was slowly dying, the red X on his forehead marking him as a casualty that could not be saved. He took the boy's hand, feeling his grip weakening. He kissed the young man's hand, then leaned over, kissing the boy on his forehead, directly on the red X. He then did something that he would do for every casualty that night.

"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures..."
