Shadow War Introduction

The night is dark and full of terror, you are the night.

   
 

Kindred Vampires of Vecna

  You are the Kindred Vampires sired by Vecna's bloodlines from the World of Night . An inferno desert world of blazing sun, now shrouded in perpetual night through Vecna’s dark sorceries. Vecna's launching point against the foundation worlds. Vecna takes the place of Caine from Earth’s vampire lore, but in a present an involved manner.  
         
 

The Chosen

  Your characters are the Chosen of Vecna and tasked with the subtle conquering of the Greyhawk City, infiltrated from the Shadowfell. The Chosen of Vecna are younger vampires still in touch with their humanity. This gives them an edge in dealing with mortals while furthering the goals of the Kindred.

Vampire the Requiem (2nd Edition) game
using Onyx Paths new Storypath rule system,
set in a D&D fantasy world similiar to Greyhawk.
 
The Shadow War started with one complicated question.
What if ...
... Vecna, one of Dungeons & Dragons greatest villains, replaced Caine and was the Dark God of Kindred in a Vampire the Requiem Dark Fantasy game.

 

The Danse Macabre

  We have heard the Requiem for one vampire, but what happens when the song is joined? How do they intertwine? A chorus forms, opening up new possibilities as monsters engage each other. Here lurks the menagerie, an unkindness of Beasts. Each one of the Damned has a different song, but when those songs play over each other, the dance begins.
