Basic Setting Information

Nightfall is an urban fantasy set primarily in the city of Zion. The city is primarily inhabited by humans. But, though most of the humans know nothing about them, many other creatures share the city with the humans. Many of the supernatural creatures of the city belong to one of the powerful factions. Though there are some who avoid anything to do with the factions, preferring to remain neutral. Magic is known by all, though humans generally look down on its use, and are distrustful of those who openly use it, if not outright shun them.

The world Zion exists in is basically a parallel to our own, with the above exceptions/additions/changes.


There are also subsettings in New Orleans, Las Vegas, Cordoba, and Avalon. (Please ask for more information if you're interested.)

(If you have any questions, please, please, ask them! Questions help us as much as you, by letting us know where the info needs filled in more! And they keep everyone on the same page. PLEASE ask if you're not sure about something. ♥)

The Purge

Atticius, the current leader of the werewolves/garou, got to be the leader by slaughtering his way through most of the garou families over a period of about 25 years. While it started as revenge against the garou that attacked him and his wife - killing her and their unborn child and leaving him for dead, though he survived and was transformed into a werewolf - it is now becoming more because he wants to end the garou's iron hold over the 'lesser' werewolves and to end sport hunting of humans, since that's how he ended up becoming a werewolf.
