The glorious past!

It has been mentioned somewhere on this forum that kindred wouldn't be able to exist in modern society with phone call monitoring, and a camera in every cellphone. So here's a wild idea. Set the next xhronicle in the 80's or 90's :)

Frankly, I never understood that point of view. It's not like the wod while similar is a different universe where the illuminatii literally exist (The Technocracy) with sifi gadgets that dwarves our current technological capabilities and make sure the sleeper stay as ignorant as possible. :)

Plus even in our very cynical world you'd need more than pictures or videos to convince the majority of humans that the supernatural exist. Or at least the way it "really" exist in the wod. We are strongly attached to our beliefs (or lack thereof ;) ). I mean it's not like in some contreversial subject we can have completely different interpretations of what went on even if footage evidence.

Altough tbf the governments probably knows something about the supernatural. Probably not everything thanks to to obfuscating of the Technocracy and the Camarilla (Domination is such a wonderfull tool) but enough to know something and contributing to hide it from the mundane populace probably under the order from "above". "hint hint ;) ".

I mean we all know that the CIA covers the existence of alien in our midst and is currently experimenting on them in the not so hidden area 51 so why not vampires while we are at it amiright. :D

The VTM 20th anniversary edition book specifically states that the government KNOWS all about the supernatural. Not ALL the government, but there's definitely agencies with knowledge.

That was basically New Corsica.

I personally enjoy playing in modern nights myself as it creates a particularly challenging environment when engaging with mortals. But I also enjoyed New Corsica (Redux part II: the boogaloo) back when it was a thing. Wouldn't mind seeing a future chronicle set it the time period again eventually.

Of the more distant past time-places, the two that I think are richest in depth are
Rome, from 50 BCE to 500CE.
Constantinople, from 800CE to 1450 CE.
Paris from 1300 CE to 1800CE.
London, from 1500 CE to 1900 CE.

Fine, so maybe that's not two...
