Saint Louis Domain Historical Timeline
This timeline, while acknowledging some key points in the mortal history of the area, focuses on the movements and actions of the Kindred. For a timeline of mortal events, the staff of Saint Louis by Night: Sanguine Cobblestones recommends the use of the Saint Louis Historical Timeline as presented on WikiLou. (http://www.wikilou.com/1.20.0/index.php?title=St._Louis_Historical_Timeline)
The 18th Century
- Late 1750’s: Shortly before becoming a settlement founded by Pierre Laclede, Camarilla aggression forces Sabbat packs away from the East Coast and into the area. A few nomadic packs arrive and stake claims near what would become the first settlements of Saint Louis to lick their wounds.
- 1770 ~ 1800: The First Sabbat civil war rages between the packs in Saint Louis and surrounding areas. As the Sabbat’s influence in North America wanes, so does their hold on the growing city of Saint Louis. Independent clans rise in the area as the Sabbat struggle with themselves.
- 1800: Treaty made with Lupines and Camarilla of the area to stick to north of the city and county to a specified area that is now known as North of Interstate 270. Kindred of the Camarilla will not enter their territory and the Lupines will not enter the Camarilla domain of St. Louis and all that it claims. The Sabbat were pushed back towards East St. Louis and have remained there except for some skirmishes that the Camarilla has been victorious over.
The 19th Century
- 1803: Louisiana Purchase.
- 1804- Total population: 9,373. Whites: 7,876; Blacks (free and slave): 1,497. Estimated Kindred population: 62.
- 1812: The New Madrid fault line causes a massive earthquake. An entire block of the city collapses into a sinkhole.
- 1818: Bishop Francisco and his pack disappear after crossing the river near Alton, IL. This year sees a string of would be Bishops claim power only to be quickly dispatched by rivals. Finally, Bishop Horatio DePlata emerges as the undisputed leader of the Sabbat in Saint Louis.
- 1830: Rumors abound of a Setite Temple. Bishop DePlata is more concerned with the young Camarilla who keep attempting to carve out a foothold in the city. The young Camarilla members are hunted and destroyed.
- 1832: Saint Louis University chartered.
- 1834: Saint Louis Cathedral consecrated. Vampires can go nowhere near it.
- 1849: Three mortals die as a result of a fire started on the ship The White Cloud. Bishop DePlata is one of the vampiric casualties. The assassination is believed to have culminated in the Race Riots of July 1849, where the packs of the Sabbat had open warfare with one another despite the Purchase Pact. While some believe this was a failed first attempt at a siege of the city by the Camarilla, none have stepped forward to claim responsibility. Never the less, it cannot be denied that this signaled the decline of Sabbat strength in the area.
- 1855: Clan Tremere claims to have established a Chantry in the Saint Louis area.
- 1861: General John C Freemont, Commander of the Western Department of the U.S. Army, declares Martial Law in Saint Louis. None may leave without the permission of the Army. The Camarilla Siege of Saint Louis had officially begun. Camarilla forces (some wearing the blue of the Union as special advisor officers) saw the last of an organized Sabbat resistance. Alexander Vargos, of Clan Ventrue, is credited with leading the siege and is recognized by the Camarilla as the crowned Prince of Saint Louis.
- 1878: Seneschal Crispen LeBlanc, of Clan Brujah, attempts to seize Praxis from Prince Vargos. The Seneschal is executed and replaced by Gregory Ronald of Clan Malkavian, so dubbed the Seer of Saint Louis. Prince Vargos declares the first week of July to be known as the Veiled Prophet Celebration.
- 1895: The first Camarilla Sherriff of Saint Louis, Desmond Good of Clan Brujah, is killed while lending his aid for the city in the first battle of Mexico City. Prince Vargos declares a week of mourning to be observed the first week of every November in Saint Louis until the end of time.
- 1896: The Nosferatu discover the location of the Setite Temple in Saint Louis. The death of one of the Nosferatu sparks the anger of Prince Vargos, who orders every Setite to be destroyed within his domain. The Toreador Primogen, Rudolf Strauss, is executed on suspicion of the Prince to have been associated with the Temple. The Setite High Priest, who shall forever remain nameless on the order of the Prince, summons the Tornado of 1896. That High Priest is killed by Prince Vargos himself in a rare example of the elder entering combat.
The 20th Century
- 1904: Mortal Population estimated at 575,000, making St. Louis the nation's 4th largest city. Camarilla kindred population is 112. World’s Fair is held.
- 1906: Danielle Foster of Clan Brujah becomes the Sheriff of Saint Louis after she uncovers Seth Jacob’s, a Gangrel who replaced Desmond Good as Sheriff, connection to the Silver Horseshoe Society. Her first act is to place former Sheriff Jacob into torpor where he is to remain for 100 years on order of Prince Vargos. This begins a tense relationship between the Brujah and the Gangrel.
- 1917: The Aluminum Ore Race Riot, as it is called by the mortal newspapers, is actually a fight between a pride of Gangrel led by Keegan Brewer and a Brujah gang led by Phillip Grant, the childe of Danielle Foster. Sheriff Foster plays no favorites as she and her deputies hunt down the participants over the next few nights and pounds them into torpor. Her statement, though considered inelegant by the court, is echoed by Prince Vargos. “If a tree falls in the woods, and no one is there to hear it, it does indeed make a sound.” It is considered the Prince’s stance on the Masquerade. Feeding rights in the city for Clan Gangrel are redrawn to only the outer limits of the domain. Phillip Grant becomes the second Camarilla subject of the city to be executed by order of the Prince.
- 1919: A young Brujah is discovered with a copy of “An Anarch Manifesto” by Salvador Garcia. After the Mexican uprising of 1911, Prince Vargos takes no chances. The title of Scourge is reinstated in Saint Louis, accepted by Keegan Brewer of Clan Gangrel. The manifesto is burned with the staked body of the young Brujah.
- 1972: Saint Louis is host to a symposium. Prince Lodin of Chicago is said to have succeeded in getting a majority vote together for the dismantling and export of the U.S. auto industry, in order to undermine the power of the Giovanni in Detroit, who had held praxis there for 5 years at that point. That same year at Conclave in Vienna, affairs in Detroit were a big part of the conversation.
- 1981: Seneschal Ronald is accused of killing a Toreador neonate without Right of Destruction in a fit of frenzy. Prince Vargos promptly orders his execution. The Primogen, backed by Harpy Iverson of Clan Toreador, stay the execution order. However, Seneschal Ronald was removed from office and the Veiled Prophet Celebration was cancelled, becoming Fair Saint Louis to the mortals. No Seneschal is named to replace the Seer of Saint Louis, instead, Prince Vargos declares “The Primogen will address the concerns of the Seneschal in the Domains I’ve granted them.”
The 21st Century
- 2012: On December 12th, 2012, in what was originally thought to be an Anarch uprising, neonates began attacking not only their sires but each other. The Starving, as it has become known, turned the majority of the kindred population on each other. Many kindred died in attacks in the impromptu civil war; including many of the Primogen, the Sheriff, and Prince Alexander Vargos himself.
- 2013: In January of 2013, Meshack Boeotarch of Clan Ventrue, claims Praxis over the domain of Saint Louis.

If you follow the Six Traditions of the Camarilla, you will have no problems in our domain! Just in case you do not know what they are, I have listed them here for you! If you really need them explained to you, I would suggest you find out BEFORE entering our city.
The First Tradition: The Masquerade
Thou shalt not reveal thy nature to those not of the Blood. Doing so shall renounce thy claims of Blood.
The Second Tradition: The Domain
Thy domain is thy concern. All others owe thee respect while in it. None may challenge thy word in thy domain.
The Third Tradition: The Progeny
Thou shalt sire another only with permission of thine elder. If thou createst another without thine elder's leave, both thou and thy progeny shalt be slain.
The Fourth Tradition:The Accounting
Those thou create are thine own childer. Until thy progeny shall be released, thou shalt command them in all things. Their sins are thine to endure.
The Fifth Tradition: Hospitality
Honor one another's domain, When thou comest to a foreign city, thou shalt present thyself to the one who ruleth there. Without the word of acceptance, thou art nothing.

Thou art forbidden to destroy another of thy kind. The right of destruction belongeth only to thine elder. Only the eldest among thee shall call the blood hunt.
