The last stronghold of the Sword of Caine in North America has fallen! San Antonio has been liberated from the predations and monstrosity that is the Sabbat. The embers have cooled and the ash has been scattered on the wind. FIRSTLIGHT has turned their gaze away from Alamo City with the Blank Body infestation routed…. or so they thought. Cainites have reared their heads once more now that the Inquisition has moved on – The Camarilla and the Anarch Movements are both claiming the win against their hated foe. But now is a time to celebrate. The Circulatory System is hosting a masquerade ball to commemorate the victory, and all are invited to partake of the bounty of a city no longer plagued by the wretched Sabbat or the inquisitorial gaze of FIRSTLIGHT.




This is a masquerade ball. Masks will be part of the expected costuming for the event, and an excuse for folks to show up in their best finery! The Camarilla comes to rub shoulders with the common folk they are normally forbidden from fraternizing with. The Anarch Movement comes to seal under-the-table deals with the upper crust and rival gangs. Those outside of either come to forge their clandestine deals to maintain their personal power to remain Autarkis. All are welcome under the hospitality of the Circulatory System for a night of revelry and celebration.
