World and Notes - TinyThings
This is a thread intended for the World/Character building aspects of a Private story, run between myself and Nine of Heartz. We decided to make a thread in World Building to keep ourselves updated on progress, as well as giving us a good place to make edits to characters, as the story progresses. I, personally, also wanted to have a safe place for all of this information, not in a Conversation. Makes it easier to keep up to date, while not having to repost details (Since you can't edit old Conversation posts).
People are welcome to bring personal input and stuff, but this will really be, mostly, for the two of us. Since this is an open thread, people are of course welcome to share thoughts, critique or praise, but don't expect too much feedback. ^^
This world is heavily inspired by, and takes aspects from the World of Darkness universe.
The Rasputin Coven
The Coven is thought to be a relatively small, 'non-Coven', to many of the other Vampire Covens in the Country. They do not even go by a name, being simply referred to as the 'Rasputins', or the 'Nosferatu', by others, while the members of the Coven, just call themselves family.
Vladimir Dracula Rasputin never really intended to start a Coven, but started a family, on the principal that even the ones left behind by other Coven's politics and antics, deserve a place to live. A place to feel safe. The main principal of the Coven, is the safety in numbers, and the strength in the shadows. The Coven keeps their dealings secret to most other Kindred Covens, seeing the strength in their independence and anonymity. The Coven has been growing in the shadows of others, taking in Kindred, left behind by others. The outcasts. Together, they've grown strong.
The Coven owns a massive piece of land in a Fictional United States, about an hour from an intentionally unnamed, fictional City. This is the image the Coven has to the outside world, but their real power lies in their underground network of Tunnels and caves. Their Caves expand all over the Major Cities across the State, some even reaching Country wide. It is a network ever expanding, and some members of the Coven are away for months, working in the expanding systems.
On the edge of their piece of land, lies Kastiel Rasputin. A massive Manor, serving as a living-space for many of the Coven's members, who prefers a House over a Cave. Around the Manor, lies several smaller buildings, working as a bit of a Community where their Human staff live and thrive. The human Community is kept unwise of the Kindred activity in the Manor and surrounding forrest by Mental Maniuplators and obfuscation.
The Castle is surrounded by a massive forrest, that expands all the way to a large Mountain Range. This forrest is very unoriginally known as 'Dreadwood', named by a less than creative human incurtion many years back, but it now fits the name pretty well. It is a dark forrest, thought to be inhabited by all kinds of monsters. A reputation the Kindred of the Coven maintain, by making it true. The grounds are protected by packs of Werewolves, conditioned by manipulative Kindred to follow orders, and attack all unmarked outsiders, keeping the Kindred safe during the day.
