"Before I lay me down to sleep, I pray to God my soul to keep. If I die before I wake, I pray to God my soul to take."

Children's Prayer, 19th Century

If you are reading this then you are one of the few who have come to realize the truth.

There are monsters living among us.

Some are beasts that can change their skin, others are horrors which live off the blood of others, some are created things filled with an unholy life, and some of the worst are mere men who realize that reality can be their plaything.

Regardless of what you have learned, all of you have had your lives changed. All of you have been ripped from normalcy, your rose colored glassed taken, and the horror of reality thrust upon you. Each of you has had one fateful day where you encountered true evil.

And now, you hunt that evil.

Others called you Obsessed, Blessed, Cursed, Damned, or Deluded. You prefer to think of yourself as a Hunter.

You are a small group of hunters, prowling the west coast of California for unseen horrors. You have all been forced together through happenstance, fate, or whatever you may call it. But you all have one thing in common, you have all encountered The Man In The Doorway.

Campaign: Open-Ended "Hunter the Vigil" campaign taking place in a modified World of Darkness. If you've played in the WoD before, don't think that your knowledge will save you here. There are no guarantees and no holds barred. Being a normal human in a world of supernatural horror isn't easy, and is usually fatal.

Generous character re-make rules, and standard "Hunter the Vigil" character generation.

Email with basic character concept. If you do not have the World of Darkness books, I will help you generate your character.
