New Orleans is a city firmly in the grasp of the Lancea Sanctum. The power is currently divided up into three factions. The Prince, Vidal, who holds the most power. The Lord of the French Quarter, Antoine Savoy. And Baron Cimitiere, who has sway over the black vodounist population. Savoy and Vidal both being of the Lancea Sanctum.
You arrive during mardi gras, and as such the main streets are literally clogged with people. As The city wide party rages, kindred flock to the easy feedings.
