Welcome to the New Orleans by Night WikiEdit
New Orleans is one of the world's most fascinating cities. Steeped in a history of influences from Europe, the Caribbean, Africa and beyond, it's home to a truly unique melting pot of culture, food and music.
It’s a great city to walk around, anchored by the beguiling French Quarter and the adjoining faubourgs (originally, ‘suburbs’). Despite the city’s bawdy reputation, it’s the moment when things are quiet – late afternoon when everyone is at the hotel getting ready to go out, early morning when the light explodes on the city and work crews come out to spray away last night’s sins – that New Orleans reveals its subtler charms.
Yet under all the hustle and bustle of human life in the Big Easy there is a world which mortals eyes are blind; a world where vampires, some young, some very ancient, stalk the night, among a myriad of other creatures..Werewolves fighting to save their mother earth Gaia, Mages who can reweave reality at will, Hunters who seek to eradicate and/or study the supernatural. Intrigue, politics, scandals, violence, all this you will find when the veil is torn from your eyes and you behold the world of darkness, a world that is not for the meek at heart.
New Orleans by Night is a World of Darkness based, text chatroom on IMC (Illusionary Minds Chat). The room is set in modern day and we run by 3rd edition and 20th Aniversary WoD rules. Character sheets are required for play and must be submitted to email@example.com. Players are allowed to play-test a character for two weeks. After the two week playtest is over, characters -must- be submitted for approval, however may continue to be played after submission. Please see the individual system pages for rules and character creation guidelines. If you have any questions please direct them either to GloryChan or Masq. Contact information can be found on the Contact page.

If you provide no proof of abusive behavior, admins can not help the player.
5. If a staff member makes a ruling about something that ruling is final. If one staffer says no...it means no. This does not mean a player should go to other staffers until they get the ruling
6. This is the World of Darkness; character death, ghouling, embracing, etc can and will happen. However please be respectfull of other players wishes in regards to their character. PM the player before running such a scene and ask if the player is cool with whatever you have planned especially if it involves character death. No one likes to lose a character that they may have played for a long time, and grown attached to; but do not use it as an excuse to go crazy. IC actions have IC reactions. If your character breaks the Masquerade or does something else that would warrent character death be prepared for the Prince to uphold the Traditions and dole out punishment.
