The year is 1890, and the Night Court is holding its decennial meeting.|
Ages ago, the immortals of this world decided that their underworld society needed to be controlled by one central figure, voted in by a ballot among the court. Wars are just too costly when millenia of undeath are on the line.
In years past, Vampire Lord Tono has been handily re-elected, but his madness is beginning to show, and opposing power factions are beginning to rise. The werewolves hope to take their own bite at power, and creeping anti-immortal revolutionary ideas are spreading among the once-neutral Helsings.
Tonight will likely end with a new leader being crowned, and theres much to be won, or lost.
This is The Heist Year 2: Gothic Heist!
Join the court as a werewolf, vampire, helsing, or enthusiast of the arcane arts, and play your role in the grand game. Over the course of two rounds of play, you can take on a role as a:
Shadow Cabinet VIP: You are one of the Night Court's highest ranking members, with power, status, and the potential to be in the running to be the next Night Lord (if you're up to take the risk).
Heist Protagonist: You're given a team and a shared quest. During one of the rounds you'll have to work together to solve puzzles and try to steal money, lives, or political power.
Helsing Guard: The Helsing have brokered an uneasy truce with the Night Lord. They are the neutral force tasked with keeping order among the court factions.
Lords and Ladies: A member of the court, you'll be given a role each round with powers, incentives, and interesting ways to influence the game
Unlike our similar party last year, which ended up thoroughly in the red, we have set ticket prices such that we would expect to juuuust break even.
If these ticket prices are beyond your budget, please reach out- we have volunteer spaces available. If you want to make this party even better, any extra money will go to improving our aesthetics or to the prize at the end.
