The Factions

The Camarilla

…has taken the city, and spent the last month or so solidifying their control. Word on the street is…very quiet, unless you have access to Elysium and are in the know.

Brujah, Malkavians, Nosferatu, Toreador, Tremere, Ventrue

The Six Traditions of the Sect


…are mostly scattered, destroyed or in hiding. No anarch leaders are known to remain in the city, and a number of them are presumed destroyed, torporized or captured.

Independent Clans

Major representatives of the independent clans, apart from the Assamites and Gangrel, are not present. The Assamite and Gangrel representatives are allied with the Camarilla, as far as anyone knows, and were instrumental in taking the city. The Giovanni do have a presence in the city, and are rumored to control parts of both Chinatown and the financial district downtown.

Assamites, Bloodlines, Gangrel, Giovanni, Ravnos, Setites

The Sabbat

The other major sect of vampires, the Sabbat encourages its members to give themselves over to the Beast, reveling in their inhumanity. Members of the Camarilla fear the Sabbat, and interacting with its members is justification for a Blood Hunt in some cities. There are no known Sabbat members in San Francisco. The nearest Sabbat-held city is Stockton, CA.

The Others

There are Asian Bloodlines of some of the Clans of kindred, primarily found on that continent but some are scattered throughout the US, particularly on the west coast.

More than vampires stalk the nights in San Francisco. Some have claimed large parts of Chinatown – another controls a chunk of territory in and around Nob Hill. Some hunt the Tenderloin district for sustenance; others arise out of the cold waters of the Bay.

It has long been local wisdom that kindred are not welcome in many sections of Chinatown, though reasons for this differ. Some assume it is just because the area is so densely populated by people who know often know each other than neighbors do in an average American city, or cultural differences (if you don’t speak Cantonese or at least Mandarin, hunting will be tough). Others have stories of…things…in Chinatown for which they can’t account.

The Region

San Francisco is a city connected to many other nearby cities – Oakland, Richmond, San Rafael, San Jose and others. Some are independent, while others are fiefdoms of whoever rules San Francisco itself.
