In 1993, the Camarilla Prince of Lodin was torn to shreds, one of the many victims of a combined Sabbat/Black Spiral Dancer assault on the Kindred of Chicago, Illinois. The city was left with multiple contenders vying for control of the city and the title of Prince, while Elders weaved intrigues in Elysium and Anarchs railed against the inequities of their youth, weak blood, and a system that was designed to keep them down. All the while, two Methuselahs waged a shadow-war with Kindred and mortal proxies alike, seeking to slate a millennium-old thirst for vengeance over the death of a dream.

Nearly twenty-five years later, join us, and peel back the mystery of how the immortal nights of Chicago have changed. We are currently accepting applications for Chicago By Night: Time Gone By, a play-by-post game using the Vampire the Masquerade 20th edition rule-set, set in the early months of 2017 and onward.

Character Creation General Restrictions: Characters are assumed to be neonates/ancilla no more than 50 years old as a Kindred. 8th Generation is lowest starting player generation. Clan Choices: All Camarilla (Assamites, Brujah, Gangrel, Giovanni, Malkavian, Nosferatu, Toreador, Tremere, Ventrue), Caitiff, Lasombra. Anything else is unlikely to be considered without a truly amazing character background/concept. Attributes 7/5/4 Abilities 13/9/6 Backgrounds 5 Virtues 7 Freebie Points 21 Merits and Flaws Up to 7 points Concept/Background - We'd like at least a page or so worth of character background so we can really get a feel for the character and work in some plot hooks to help tie the character into the setting better. We're aiming for this to be a long-term game.

We welcome submissions, as well as any questions regarding character creation, at The game will be played via discussion board.
