VAN HELSING The year is 1891, the beginning of the decline of the Victorian Era. Technology in this world is drastically different, having followed the teachings of one Nikola Tesla, leading to an unorthodox - but great - leap in technology. Coil cannons of electricity, electric tram - rails, all made and crafted in the style of the Victorian era. An era that will end in conflict and fire. In six years time, the powerful Lord Dracula will seek to expand from his domain in the Carpathian Mountains to England, so he may find new blood and spread the undead curse that grips him - and much of his homeland, Transylvania. Abraham Van Helsing - the Dutch doctor, professor, and the original vampire slayer - will move to head off the Count’s dire scheme, and kick off the end of a long war between humanity and the monsters that hide in the dark. But between now and then, you will have a part to play in this world. Whether as monster or man, you will be encouraged to take part in the history and events of this Earth. Fight on, and remember. No matter which side you fight for... The night is darkest before the dawn. +1,000 CP

Ah yes, the fabled Black Forest of Germany. Feral monsters and deranged undead wander these woods, and nobody dares to venture into it. You? Wake up right in the smack dab middle of the Black Forest, and it’s nightfall. I hope you’re ready for whatever may come. This place you might not recognize - And you wouldn’t want to. This city has been warped into a mechanized hellhole, with electrically - enhanced werewolves and clockwork knights patrolling the streets day and night. The citizenry - when not hauled off to be experimented upon and twisted into monsters - barely leave their homes for fear of the creatures that now rule. Ah, yes. Paris, the city of lights. The city of splendor and grandeur, with nobles and pageantry galore. Also, the home of numerous high - blooded covens of vampires, well - dressed witches, noble - blooded ghosts, & a certain monster, the bloodthirsty ogre known as Mr. Hyde. Ready or not, here violence must be used in equal proportions with politics. Ah, you unlucky sod. You’ve landed smack dab in the land of Lord Dracula, and the countryside shows it. It is bleak - far bleaker than one would think even at first glance. Clouds obscure the sun, allowing vampires and other children of the shadows to walk about freely. The citizenry lives in fear, and no hope remains for freedom. You have three options here: By default, wake up in Great Britain. Roll a 1d8 to see where Fate places you, or pay 100 CP to choose anywhere in the world.

Welp. Pick your poison. Founded in 1843, the second oldest city of Canada is your destination. Relatively free from oppression by Dracula and his brethren, you occasionally still have the rogue vampire, werewolf, or wight. Still not a bad place to settle down, you know?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
