The World of Darkness

The Emerald City ...

The city has changed its name from "The Queen's City" to "The Emerald City" due to the local abundance of lush Evergreens. It has a few nicknames; "Rain City" for its frequent cloudy and rainy weather, "Jet City" from the local influence of Boeing. It is also known as "The City of Flowers" to some and "The City of Goodwill" to others; both are applicable for their various reasons.

The bustle serves to keep them from seeing the layers under the Flowers' Petals. One does not have to go very far to find a variety of bars, live music, restaurants, and a thriving nightlife scene. These readily available and centrally located distractions offer a ready escape from the rigors of everyday life, and despite the regularly overcast skies, the population goes about their lives in a happy cocoon of Model Citizenry... and they love it.

The fact that they are purposefully kept busy from seeing the layers under the Flowers' petals is a boon to their sanity, if you must know the truth. Most could not handle what lurks behind the curtain of reality and those actors who do stand behind the smoke and mirrors will not expose the general populous to the horrors that lurk in the wings. Not for the humans' sanity, but for the sake of our existence.

It is a large, lonely place where creatures come to gather, to hunt, to kill, sow chaos and fear...To survive.

Corruption and decay plague the city and the hearts of man. Despite it all - the names, the mottos, the dark truth of it all, It's the place that we call Home.

Welcome to the Emerald City, where Magic fills the atmosphere, the Nights run with blood, Dreams occur, and the Moon is often full. Just ignore the men in the black suits lurking behind the curtain.
