Population: About 350,000 Location:
Somewhere North of San Francisco
If Los Angeles
is the City of Angels then Santa Marta is the city of the Fallen;
damaged, dangerous and aching for a return to former glory.
While it was founded in the late 18th century Santa Marta
didnt really reach its stride until the Gold Rush of the
1840s by 1860 it was a rapidly growing, bustling
metropolis, a shining beacon that attracted all kinds to its
streets: artists, craftsmen, lawmen, lawbreakers, treasure
seekers and luck makers More than anything, though, Santa
Marta attracted the Supernatural and by 1890, it boasted of quite
possibly the largest population of supernatural creatures in the
But Santa Martas glory wasnt meant to last the
Big Quake of 1906 hit the city hard and it would never quite
recover. For whatever reason, any aid that may have come to Santa
Marta would always be redirected elsewhere (often to San
Francisco, fueling a one-sided rivalry between the two cities)
and the very soul of the city seemed to change, growing darker
and ever more violent
Still, people of all kinds find themselves drawn to the blighted
and struggling city and also find themselves unable to leave once
theyve set down roots in its tainted ground whispers
abound in the city of something that sleeps far, far beneath the
city surface And more recently, whispers suggest that it
may be waking up.
When the tech boom hit, it would breathe fresh life into Santa
Martas shambling corpse causing a sudden population
boom and a desperate scramble to revitalize the citys
infrastructure But no amount of fresh pain can hide Santa
Martas rotting soul nor hide the fact that the city has the
highest murder rate per capita of any city in the United
States No tourist board spin can fix the corrupt and
ineffectual local government, the ever-growing presence of
dangerous supernatural cults or the looming threat of The
Myriad Eyes. And nothing can hide the slow, creeping dread
that suffuses the city.
A city caught between rampant growth and steady decay, opulence
and destitution, torn between the opposing worlds of the Mundane
and Supernatural Santa Marta never stays quiet for long and
whatever goes bump in the night bumps harder in Santa Marta.
Nightingale Court of Santa Marta
The largest group of vampires in the city. Headed by
Queen Miranda Cortez.
Bram Park Wolf Pack
One of the biggest werewolf packs in Santa Marta. Sticks
mostly around the Bram Park neighborhood. Allied with the
Nightingale Court and the Revenants.
Revenants of Santa Marta
A loose collection of smaller groups that have strong
family bonds. Might actually have more members than the
Nightingale Court but no one knows for sure.
Cult of the Myriad Eyes
Somewhere between a religious movement and a street gang.
The Cult of the Myriad Eyes is dedicated to a deity known
as "MEWM" which is rumored to be
"sleeping" beneath the city.
Cult of the Watchful Moon
A sister cult to the Myriad Eyes. The Cult of the
Watchful Moon worships an aspect of MEWM known as the
Watchful Moon. Behind quite a few of the missing persons
cases in the city.
