Nocturnality is a Vampire Chronicles roleplay game set in 1862. In this game, we explore an alternate version of the events primarily laid out in the books Interview with the Vampire and The Vampire Lestat. This is an alternate universe plot-deviation game, meaning that the events of the game timeline deviate from the canon events of the series at a certain point called a crux and head in a player decided direction.

Premise
You've seen Interview with the Vampire, you've read The Vampire Lestat. But what if things had played out differently? One minute decision made on a whim can change a life or even the course of history.

Lestat de Lioncourt was instructed to live out one mortal lifetime. "To forstall it may be to lose everything," Marius had said. This Lestat did and this story you know. Clauda, Louis, Lestat- a charade of a family built upon secrets and destroyed in a single night full of flames. But what if Lestat- burnt and beaten- had sought solace somewhere other than in one who harbored him such resentment? What if he had been unable to raise his blackened and shriveled hand to knock upon the doors of the Théâtre des Vampires and instead slunk shamed and defeated into the Paris night where his plans of going to ground were once again interrupted by an immortal with pale eyes and kind hands. What would this change?

Well and alive, Claudia and Madeline move on. Lestat, reunited with Marius, travels to find a fledgling that has sought solace in one that hates him. Nicolas, thought to be dead, haunts Paris like a phantom. Reunions, discoveries, a whole world on the cusp of change- what will you find here? Join nocturnality and find out!

Direction
Our direction is completely player decided, but we have plans to move the main setting of the game from Paris to London after the characters are reunited at the Théâtre des Vampires. There, Marius will establish a house and attempt to enter society even with the eyes of the Talamasca focused directly upon him.
