The Truckee Lodge is a large house just outside the town of Truckee. It is the primary meeting area of the Donner Family, and is often used as a home base for the entire Donner Party. There is always a Donner living at the Lodge to give aid or beds to any members of the Donner Party that might need a place to stay. It also hosts any 30th, and final, birthday/goodbye gatherings for those going to return to Donner Lake.
The Northern Lights is a small hotel on the outskirts of St. Paul, Minnesota. It’s not really much more than a rest stop for those traveling. It offers beds, and rest for the Donner Party and a place to store items if needed.
Bianca Sinclair has been a long time ally of the Donner Party since before colored people were accepted in the south. At first, she worked out of her meager home giving tarot readings and divinations for money. When the Donner Party first encountered her she saw in them a great sadness and offered to help them. Over the years Bianca has moved on from simple divinations and into serious magics. She, however, has been known from time to time to give readings for good reasons to members of the Donner Party.
The Graves Manor sits a top a small hill overlooking the city of Independence, Missouri. It houses all current knowledge of the Demon of Donner Lake, and the Donner Party. It also holds the original copy of the Graves’ Bible (the ongoing journal for the Donner Party). The Graves Manor, while a large home, is used primarily as a library and resource of occult knowledge. It is always cared for by a member of the Graves family.

New Castle is a popular ivy league hangout for the local Yale University. It’s often been used by the Reed family as a place to gather and share information, and it also makes a useful in for making contacts with some of the world’s best and brightest. While the Donner Party mostly live their lives as outsiders New Castle gives them an “in” with society.
Mitchell Murphy and Hal Pike had been hunting together for the last 10 years. They’ve recently hung up their weapons and decided to “settle down” and create a new place the Donner Party could call home. This led to the establishment of the Pecos Bar & Grill. While the Pecos is open to the public it often closes its doors to the public in order to hold private gatherings for Donner Party members passing through. Hal and Mitch have made some in roads with a few Mexican weapons dealers and have opened up a halfway shop of arms for the Donner’s in need.
Much to the surprise of the Donner Party a pair of jokers named Matt Eddy, and Wes Murphy decided to take their supernatural hunter background and apply it for a monetary gain. Strangely, the pair has had some success in Chicago finding various bits of work. While most of the Donner Party stays clear of these two, the Graves family has taken an interest in their doings… for prosperity’s sake. The Donner’s have issued a warning that these two might be dangerous.
