Brainstorm Ideas

  • Shortly thereafter, many mauled and exsanguinated bodies courtesy of a Draugr and its Larvae.
  • Local authorites blame the deaths on cougars.
  • Gangrel is worried that hunters or other vampires will show up to deal with the Draugr.

Hooks and Early Sources

  • Cadaver at the Morgue – Cassandra, Agent Crane and Detective Brown for autospsy procedure
  • Morning Radio Report
  • DNR Ranger out on the Trail with a local vetrinarian. Claim another fellow is asking questions, Dalton.
  • Skiiers out on the trail.
  • Convoy of a hunting party driving through town – Jeeps & ATVs, camoflage and orange vests.
  • Notice signs at the entrances to the Cannon Valley Trail
  • Friday night music – band playing at the Woodshed

The Past The Red Wing Boys’ Correctional Facility was also a mental hospital for the crimminally insane minors incarcerated therein. In a desperate attempt to lower the amount of fights, drugs and brain surgery were utilized. The project was a failure.

Investigation Three missing paranormal investigations, The Ghost Hunters, had spent the night locked in the prison. Our investigative team searched the prison a few days later and found themselves trapped therein. Things became strange in the prison as the walls dripped with blood and strange mouths appeared in the solitary confinement cells. The investigators witnessed the suicide of groundskeeper, fought off a now insane Ghost Hunter and destroyed a crazed creature in a straight jacket.

Mary of Burgandy – Vampire the Requiem Character

Mary, called Mary the Rich (13 February 1457 – 27 March 1482)

Mary of Burgundy was born in Brussels, at the Ducal castle of Coudenberg. Her birth, according to the court chronicler, Georges Chastellain, was attended by a clap of thunder ringing from the otherwise clear twilight sky.  It was an omen of the depraved and cruel future destined for the young girl.

As the only child of Charles the Bold, Mary was heiress to a vast and wealthy domain, made up of the Duchy of Burgundy, the Free County of Burgundy, and the majority of the Low Countries.  A wealthy heiress, Mary of Burgundy was one of the most eligible bachelorettes of her time, so wealthy that she was even called “Mary the Rich” and her hand was eagerly sought by a number of princes.

Her mother, Isabella died in 1454.  Her father, Charles the Bold, remarried in 1468 to Margaret of York.  This was a significant event in the life of Mary.  Though she did not know it at the time, her new stepmother was a vampire.  Although the marriage produced no children, due to Margaret’s secret state of unlife, Isabella’s stepmother proved herself a valuable asset to Burgundy.

Immediately after her father married Isabella, Isabella took the young girl on a journey through Flanders, Brabant and Hainaut, visiting the great towns: Ursel, Ghent, Dendermonde, Asse, Brussels, Oudenaarde and Kortrijk were all impressed by her intelligence and capability.  Margaret had chosen the girl to be her future childe through blood.  The vampiric bloodline that Margaret belonged to, The Corojosa, specialized in telepathic powers of domination through the blood sympathy passed on to their progeny.
