Blood Money 2: Dark Territories (Part 2)

9 Jun

Completing the dissection of Moscow’s Vampire territories. Again the city map is here, some general notes on this Vampire: The Requiem chronicle setting are here.

4. THE MOTHER

North West Administrative Okrug
Covenant: Circle of the Crone
Regent: Zofa

Notes: The headquarters for the Circle of Crone. Occasionally, when indoors there is the inexplicable smell of blood. On the streets broken matryoshka dolls and loose teeth are sometimes found. A warms emanates from the earth, melting the snows, as though something large sleeps beneath it. A disproportionate number of ruddy babies are born here, although some number of these go missing before they are ever weened.

5. THE HILL

Central Administrative Okrug
Covenant: Circle of the Crone
Regent:
Rusalka

Notes: The centre of Moscow and the location of Elysium and much of the feeding that takes place. Garish, wealthy, debauched. Mafiosi eating Caviar, socialites queuing to get past the armed security at nightclubs.

6. THE CEMETERY

Eastern Administrative Okrug
Covenant:
Invictus
Regent: Eudoxia

Old world buildings, the once home to the Rominovs. Disproprotionate number of elderly here. Old generals and former beauties waiting to die. White Russian vampires talk of their lost estates, of the fallen glories of their empire in tatters.

7. THE GATES

Southern Administrative Okrug
Covenant: Circle of the Crone
Regent: Vodianoi

Notes: Cathedrals and palaces sit among housing estates. A large number of immigrants live here, struggling for the promise of a future. Ancient Tartar traditions are kept alive by a few, rituals from the steps are made in honour of long dead gods.

8. THE MARSHES

South Eastern Administrative Okrug
Covenant: Invictus
Regent: Eudoxia

Notes: Prisons and Monasteries are scattered here. The masses of Moscow live here, factory and city workers — the press of humanity. The ghost scent of ancient swaps can occasionally be smelt on the wind.

9. THE PIT

South Western Administrative Okrug
Covenant: Ordo Dracul
Regent: Vincent

Notes: The mass graves of Stalin’s Great Purges lie under foundations here. Gangsters and street crime are plentiful. The graffiti of missing children appear over night, their creators unknown.

10. THE SUN

Western Administrative Okrug
Covenant: Circle of the Crone
Regent: Anistasia

Notes: Dotted with Stalinist architecture and old memorials, Once home of many of the Communist elite. Brutalist architecture marks the points of state sanctioned lay lines, their original purpose unknown.
