Artifice and Ash
And travellers, now, within that valley,
Through the red-litten windows see
Vast forms, that move fantastically
To a discordant melody,
While, like a ghastly rapid river,
Through the pale door
A hideous throng rush out forever
And laugh—but smile no more.

Part of the theme and feel of this Chronicle will be to embrace the twisted morality of the World of Darkness, and its overall feel of dark decadence and perverse narcissism. Leaning heavily on elements of Lovecraft and Barker, the story will center in part on the infectious corruption inherent to the WoD as well as on the sense of desperation and scrambling against greater, or at least more ancient, forces than the players will have access to.
