Supernatural Status Quo
New York City is overflowing with Supernatural Activity – ranging from the Goser Incident of the mid 80’s to the more recent Titan’s War and the ongoing conflict between The White Council and the Vampire Courts.
Fueled by it’s drug money, and striving to establish itself as a power within the Red Court, the Escobado Cartel farriers the Vampire War on with the White Council with ruthless efficiency.
The White Council struggles to maintain its precarious presence within NY, depending on it’s allies, The Watcher’s Council, to help in their struggle. The two Wardens present within New York, barely tolerate one another, and rarely work together.
The Watcher’s council struggles to rebuild itself after suffering numerous losses in the Vampire War as well as to powerful immortals who tire of The Watcher’s Interference. Their location within New York remains a secret one, for now.
Recently released form their imprisonment, the Hendriksen Scourge seek control over the newly created Hellmouth beneath the new Freedom Tower.
Emerging from the depths, the Fomor seek to establish themselves beyond simple hired muscle, and grasp at any opportunity to add to their power.
Both Faerie Courts have numerous portals to their realms throughout the five boroughs, and they guard them viciously.
The Elven Rangers, dispatched throughout the world by their king, report directly to their regional commander, who is based out of New York. From here, reports are sent back to the Cintra, helping the elves maintain their protection of the Ellcrys Tree and the Fallen contained within it, as well as maintain the secrecy of their existence.
Technomancers, thought only to exist in Great Britain, are making their presence felt throughout the City, and Anonymous is only more than happy to assist them in their efforts.
The Last Apprentice of Kemmler dwells within New York, his motivations unknown, gatherin power, and corpses, to himself.
Looking down from their home above the Empire State Building, the Olympian deities watch, their true goals unknown even to their children. Zeus himself signed ont the Unseelighe Accords only recently, to ensure its protections for the halfblooded children who walk the City Streets beneath.
The Immortal Gangster, Lucky Lucciano, the man who created the Five Families, ever seeks to increase his power, and turns his eyes upon the supernatural predators of the City. Why he has taken this moment to ‘protect’ the people of New York, no one knows.
Throughout New york, ghosts of every shape and size, can be found, many unknown until the Goser Incident of the 80’s. Will the Sumerian Deity return, again intent on destroying humanity?
The City Government is quite aware of the Supernatural world around it, and unlike most cities of the world, has taken action. The NYPD’s Unsolved Crimes Unit was created specifically to investigate and deal with supernatural incidents throughout the five boroughs.
Unknown to any, the Us Government also takes part in battling the supernatural. The Agency, once a branch of the FBI and now it’s on department, has it’s secret headquarters within New York, and pursues those supernaturals who seek to harm American Citizens relentlessly, all the while monitoring the others how live amongst New York’s teeming population
All this and more, ebb and flow throughout New York, like the numerous Ley Lines which flow beneath it. What lies ahead for New York, none may tell
