Important Documents for the Game
Okay folks, what we have here are a few in-game and out-of-game documents that are kind of important and that you should be familiar with (or they're just amusing and we wanted to share them). So, read and enjoy!
Norton Eastwick's Guide to Taking Action. When this well-known Malkavian, who served as a Deputy under three different Sheriffs during his time in Chicago, left town, he promised to publish his notes on how to best make plans and achieve one's goals, based off of his observations on the various failed and successful plots, schemes and ideas he had seen undertaken while he was a Deputy. This guide was originally written in October of 2003 and distributed to Norton's fellow Deputies and the Sheriff and was well-received by them, causing him to publish these notes now, as he leaves Chicago.
The Rules of Elysium. These Rules, issued by the now-deceased former Keeper of Elysium, Winston Tripphammer, were supposedly set up to regulate Kindred's behavior in the various Elysiums (or Elysia, as Tripphammer sometimes referred to them) throughout Chicago. Furthermore, one of the specific Elysiums (known as either the "Mansion Elysium" or "Fortress Elysium," depending on who you're talking to) had some specific rules about entering and leaving the location, due to the elaborate security systems present; those rules can be read in the Welcome Brochure Tripphammer created. These rules supplanted the The Laws of Elysium issued by Christien du Maurier, who was the Keeper before Tripphammer. Of course, given that the Keeper of Elysium for Chicago is now Dante Berne of the Tremere, it is not known if he will be instituting any specific rules or conventions for the Elysium he creates (although it is known that he is keeping and maintaining the major Elysiums that Tripphammer set up), so these rules, regulations and laws are presented mainly for curiosity's sake for those who are interested in seeing how the Elysiums of Chicago have been run in the past.
Genji's Guide To The Disciplines. So, are you curious about what you really know about thing with your Discipline Lore? Well, wonder no more! Genji, the Gangrel Primogen, one of the Deputies to Sheriffs Corsten and Garibaldi and even Seneschal of Chicago (but only for a few weeks), whipped together this little guide - all based on things that, for the most part, happened during the game. We scanned in the original drawings, so everyone can enjoy them! Just beware - these are some rather large-sized graphics, so this might take a while to load up....
Prince Trust's Flowchart of Laws. After a number of Kindred complained that Prince Trust seemed to be somewhat capricious in how he handed out punishments, Prince Trust whipped up a little series of flowcharts (also known as "The Red Binder") that highlighted how he planned on punishing and rewarding people when they broke his rules. Of course, Julian Trust is no longer the Prince, and his rules no longer apply, but - this Flowchart is still around. It is viewed mostly as a curio these days, it seems....
The House Rules. Here you go, in case you haven't seen them yet. These are the House Rules for the game. There are some changes from what's in Laws of the Night: Revised, so read up and learn how we're doing things, okay? Remember - ignorance is no excuse, and if you want (or need), we even have it in a PDF format here in case that's better for you. So, there shouldn't be any problems in getting these, you know? Read them and love them....
Character Creation Worksheet. So, you read the rules and want to make a character? Here you go; here's a worksheet of sorts for you to fill out and give to the Storytellers. If you want, we even have it in a PDF format here. Simple, eh?
