The year is 1912 and the esteemed Lord de L’Isle has invited vampires from across the world to his estate for a night of revelry and veneration in celebration of his 1000th birthday. Residents of the estate as well as invited vampires with their human familiars will be at this event. But when the Lord disappears right before this event, what will happen and who will step up as the new leader of the vampiric community and owner of the Lord’s estate?

This game does not focus on trying to solve a murder. Instead, it focuses on getting into character, roleplaying and trying to solve your own personal goals throughout the night. Perhaps your character wants to become the new leader, find a vampire to turn them or seek revenge on someone who’s wronged them. Everyone’s goals are different and there is no winner or loser – you are all getting into character and creating a story together.

This game, in particular, will surely be a hit with any fan of the TV series and film What We Do In The Shadows.
