World of Darkness - New Calais
New Calais, the City that Never Dreamed, is a city that, by all rights, should not exist. Founded by a man without a past and financed by another that never existed, the city is a microcosm of all that is wrong with the World of Darkness. It is said that the regions original inhabitants referred to the locale as the “Hungry Land” and “the Dead Waters” and was cursed millennia ago by its first inhabitants, to forever hunger for the souls of those who dwell here. Others claim that the city was cursed at its founding by a fell pact between Philippe Dulac and the Devil himself.
The truth, at this point, is probably moot. The city exists, the city hungers and the city hates and if you’re very, very lucky, you never catch it’s eye.
