New Chronicle, New City
Whether you’re already a fan of LA by Night or just discovering Vampire actual plays, the series is a great starting point for fresh undead drama.
New York By Night follows two coteries of young vampires as they struggle to find their place amid the dark schemes of New York City’s undead underworld. Season one represents the Anarch story, focusing on a group of four Kindred who are fed up with living under the Camarilla’s strict rules.
Season two, airing later this year, brings us the Camarilla coterie and its focus on maintaining both the Masquerade and the faction’s grip on power in the city.
Both the Anarch and Camarilla coteries begin their story separately but are on a collision course through a parallel narrative in season three, an innovation from the team that pioneered L.A. by Night.
“This chronicle takes place in the same continuity as LA by Night,” said Jason Carl, the Storyteller and host of the show. “And if you have played Coteries of New York and Shadows of New York you might recognize some familiar names and faces as the chronicle takes place in the time immediately between the events of these two narrative experiences.”
Meet the Anarchs
New York By Night Season 1 features both veteran World of Darkness cast in new roles and newcomers to the Vampire: The Masquerade story world. The Anarch cast lineup for season one includes:
