The New York Kiss
A sweeter taste is that of the emotion behind it
Nova 'Novaline''
Master of the City
Soudre Sang Master
Nova is a creature of cunning, comfort and pleasure. Orgininally she was Belle Morte Line and has recently come into power that of her own Bloodline. The lust and desire is still there but she is a new sort of Vampire that is unknown to many. She is also Blind, which she hides exceedingly well though her powers to see Much like Dare Devil but this is also not widely known.

Nova has one Human servant and Calls the Lions as her animal to Call. She's understanding, gentle and kind but then every thing light has a dark side. She is manipulative in how she operates, always her Kiss is first and foremost but those she calls friends or hers personally, are not to be trifled with and she will protect those without hesitation.

about
When choosing to play as a vampire character you should definitely check out the available information in the powerbook section of the site; which can be found , you should direct any &/or all questions to @sakaira as the player in charge of the only officially recognised Kiss in the local area. She can be contacted either via the site OR through the messaging service Discord, and everyone is welcome to chat or discuss plots and ideas as much as they want or need.

Welcome to the Kiss- You've been turned into the undead, the need for blood is strong and guidance as to fit into you're new life. For Kiss related information on how things are run, you may come to me Sakaira on all things to sink your teeth into.

The New York City Kiss is a collective of vampires that span the entire city and each vampire would belong to such a group. Any that have not presented themselves to the Master of the City to join the Kiss, is considered a rogue. They must ask permission to even come through the city before arriving.

Because the city is so large, it is still under the governing Master of the City. This is to ensure no rogues slip past their purview but let's face it, it's a big place. Most will sleep at our establishment known as Rhapsody in the underground of the Hotel. It is a secret to the public and not to be shared of where we sleep. All staff is rolled Renfeilds to prevent slip ups, warded heavily below and access is keycard and password protected. Room and board are provided along with servant to feed from.

We drink blood and cannot go out in the day if you are able to stay up pat your bedtime. All blood drinking my be consensual within the Hotel and outside of it as drawing attention to the vampires for human feeding will get you punished. More is in the rules. You don't have to stay in the Hotel but it is recommended for safety. any mishaps are to be reported immediately so as the MOTC can do cleans ups and yes... we do get them a lot. Keep our noses clean as we've been given status and rights only within the past 25 years, people still fear us so be careful with interactions of the newly formed RPIT and rolling your feeds.

what has gone before
The Kiss here was hidden for many a year before the laws came out to free them. There was a period of adjustment to being open about themselves and slowly came out of the wood works. Some lost their jobs as a result to 'coming out'. The Master of the City was rather a tyrant with his rule over those in the years until his end in Feburary 2016. He held secrets well and while he was fair, he was very in control of the Kiss. Things were not let go of lightly, and punishments were severe. He held onto his reign through harsh cruelty and yet, things were peaceful even if from a fearful perspective. No rogue entered the city without knowing and he was strict his punishments for them. He care not for other cities and their relations, keeping a tight hold only on his own.

Their allies were the Leopards only, having a beef with Wolves and the Rats were forced through compulsion to obey as he called them. He allowed those with Animal to call, to do how they wished, which was why the dislike between wolves and rats were so strong. One of his Masters called wolves and was more than a little cruel to them. All Pome De Sangs were free reign to him only except the Master's beneath him.

The moment his death and those of his Master's occurred, there was immediate an exhale of relief, but then those that needed raising were weaker or could not. Rogue ran rampant, those that couldn't contain themselves had begun to form little groups of themselves. Mini Kisses that had their own rules and little territory wars were had. It wasn't until that Kura came back that those flocked to him for bloodoathing and security once RPIT came in to handle those rogues. Safety was offered once more under him yet there were still groups that stayed from the Master of the City, liking their freedom and terrified of another tyrant.

Kura needing to leave the city brought on more fear being left to the mini groups and RPIT until Nova stepped in and her being blind has left a bit of underestimation of her ability to control them or raise them. Those coming out of the woodworks might doubt her, or think themselves superior. Some would come to her thinking they will still get away with their ways. Those that support her ... would know different.

Kiss Laws and Rules
Within the Kiss there aren’t many laws. However there are a few basic rules.

Basics:
Do not get caught breaking any human laws.
Do not kill or harm another vampire- unless it's rogues
Do not kill or harm a member of any allied groups.
Do not kill or harm another vampire’s pomme de sang.

Internal affairs. The world doesn't now how the Kiss operates, and we'd like to keep it that way. Outing a vampire in front of other is rude so be discretionary about your chat about being what you are in public settings and who might over here. What happens in the Kiss stays in the Kiss. We encourage mingling with other groups, just please no sharing of it all to total strangers and outing yourself is fine.

Rogues. Rogues are not tolerated in the city. Should any be found, they are to be reported immediately. If any want to pass through, they should contact Nova first before entering the City. It's a large city and it's hard to police but staking our reputation with the public in rogue attacks are not good, thus handling them to run them out of town or sending them to the Master is a good idea.

Show Respect. This especially applies to the Master of the City, or ranking members of the Kiss. The same goes with our Allies but they do not require to be bloodpointed to, that's reserved for our ranks and leadership. You follow us, not them. Politeness is required and not killing their own to prevent disruption. To bloodpoint to a ranked is slight of wrist or neck. To the Master of the City, due to blindness, she will still expect this act to be shown in gatherings as other vampires will need to visually see this, for her knowledge he will be able to tell by voice but hse also would prefer to kiss or gently touch the offered flesh in return.

Pomme and Servants. You treat your servants how you want. Although Nova understands cruelty to your animals to call, she would prefer this not to be the case as alliance's could very well be jeopardized by a cruel Master. If any complaints arise of cruelty to the local groups, you may receive a visit from your beloved leader... and don't you be touching her wolves. No no. Pomme's though, if anyone touches another's Pomme without permission, there will be hell to pay.

Don’t draw attention. This is mainly in terms of humans. Don’t draw negative attention to the Kiss in any way. The Vampires are pretty open about the fact that they are in town and they are here to stay. Most of the Vampire owned businesses publicize the fact that they are owned by the Kiss and should the public enter, we still keep a low key. Displays of biting with consent are made for acts and to appeal to the customers but we are to be exclusive with our displays.

No Rolling/Biting without consent. while this rule is upheld within the public's view, we all know it happens on the occasion. Nova has done it a number of times too, just be sure that you aren't caught and to cover your tracks if you do so. Roll the victim to high hell and leave it at that, if you cannot roll them... well... we have other options.

Turning Must be done with consent by law, we all know this can change according to circumstance. That being said, just be careful with who you turn and should you do so, it's a big no no to just up and leave your Childe. Make arrangements if you have to with another to Sire in your stead but to abandon them when freshly turned is a crime punishable by the master of the city should this become out of control. No one under the age of 18 is to be turned.

'outing' a vampire - it's polite to keep ones vampirism a secret in public settings. It rude to out them.

The unspoken law - Clean up your mess. accidents happen, and they should not be often accidents. That being said, the Kiss is gracious enough and slightly evil enough tot turn a blind eye to some actions of mortal deaths. So long as it hasn't drawn attention through RPIT, media or other vampires, so long as it's cleaned up and not heard of, Nova will have plausible deniability until it is brought to attention, then expect punishment.

Rank explaining
Master Of the City Leader – All vampires are under the protection and ruling of this person. Being the strongest in the city and most powerful by most standards.


Témoin - Second In Command - This person is next to follow should the MOTC be unavailable and takes over in duties. They speak for the MOTC when the leader is not around. Also they run Manhatten and the Bronx. master required.


Titus - Envoy - This our liason between groups. The messenger that delievers information and is the point of contact for relations. Its one of the safest ranks due to it's 'don't shoot the messenger' belief. Attacking the Envoy means declaring war.


Astraeus - Public Relations - Is going to be our liaison to the RPIT, the public and getting the clean up crew to handle messy eaters. Master not required


Perses - Evil Doer - This will be when we need something done the MOTC or higher ranked cannot do themselves. Normally killing someone and not always a vampire rogue. Disciplining another may be left up to this person as well if the MOTC see's fit.


Spathí/Lepída - Enforcers The thugs of the Kiss. Like the guards that watch over events, keep and eye out on the room and if any commotion is started they are the ones to come up and drag you down to the dungeons. They flow orders from MOTC, 2nd and 3rd, but command all other enforcers beneath you. Yup you two are like the captains of the guard and security with NPC enforcers under you to direct and train. Master not required


Menoetius - Bodyguard - Normally this would not be required, but seeing as our MOTC is blind and requires some additive protection. They would be by her side almost constantly and obey without question. Loyalty is a must and yes she does send them out to take out those that have become... troublesome. master required.

alliances
Alliances are joined either by family, or by co-agreement with the groups by the leaders- these are viewed as mutually beneficial for the groups.

Looking for new business to boilster our reserves!

FSigned in Blood- There are bodies showing up at the morge with mutilations women only that looks like the womb is removed each time and the bodies are getting worse in the scalpel like cuts that appear to be surgical. They are drained of blood with initials carved into skin JR. Why this is a vampire mission is because each victim was last seen around Carotid. Look into it, see if there are any vampires with those initials. - prompt lead 2ppl


Fresh meat - We need fresh blood in the Kiss now that we've lost some servants. It shouldn't be hard to find some willing to be rolled and obedient right? You and another are tasked with finding us some... suggested route is the homeless. It's not a pretty job but it's giving those home, health, care, and those that are crazy... sanity. It's pretty much a snatch and grab, kidnapping but so long as your not caught and finding healthy ones to boot. What you have stumbled across in this recruitment is that someone is already feeding off the homeless.... ew right? Deal with the rogue and bring us our new slaves while not getting caught for snagging off the street.... - thread 2-3 ppl
Escapee - We have some prisoners that we keep below, not just for punishment for also for the safety of the Kiss and the city. One... has escaped. How, was not by faults of guards or security, but from outside help. There was no incident, no death but the passing of a guard one night found the cell empty with clues to indicate how this one escaped. Right now... its to hunt her down... yes her... before something happens. - thread 2 ppl - self lead

Important Links For You

  • Wip -

  • IC Info Your Character Should Know

  • 2016 there was an attack on the hotel through the long forgotten escape tunnels from under the Hotel. Two powerful necromancer that brought ghouls and revenant vampires in our lower sleeping chambers. They were eliminated and the control over some vampires lead to the hotel being heavily warded with magic unknown to most by Logan Downing. Novas servant witch at the time.

  • 2017 the April Auction was a scene of blood shed as The Collector made his appearance and a murder happened in his establishment. One of the murderers were caught but there is heavy suspicion on the man himself as he appears vampire but doubt in this seems founded by a select few that finds those clues.

  • Current date - some short weeks after the collectors appearance there has been first signs of trouble brewing for the Kiss. Disappearances have started... Only for vampires to show up days later with no recollection of there time away. They are taken during the day from their place of rest ... Which is unknown at the moment that there is a correlation between sleeping safe in the hotel or outside of it.... This heavily suggests of necromancy once details and frequency spreads.

    Foot Notes

  • Terminology
    Animal to Call - Each Vampire when becoming a Master has the chance to be able to connect with an animal and 'call' this creature to them with mental summons. They have to obey when called. Sometimes this animal translates into the Lycan community and the vampire can call the group as a whole.

    Bloodpointing - Required by all vampires. A turn of the or neck to an upper vampire in show of respect or when having to make amends for a slight. This will be done to the Master of the City upon meeting and Nova will touch the inside of the wrist in greeting for formal occasions.

    Bloodoathing - This is a sharing of blood between two vampires to 'blood oath' to the Master of the City. This allows the Master to give strength and take strength from those beneath them. Some vampires cannot rise without this bloodoathing if their sire is dead or are otherwise drawing off their 'bloodline' Sourdre de sang. This is not required for all Vampires, but without this Bloodoathing, the Master is not as powerful to protect their ilk. Non-masters as a rule do this and all NPC's are considering having done this.

    Human Servant - When a master vampire 'marks' a human or Lycan as their 'servant' but which they share powers and extended life, this is a connection and not done lightly. See the vampire guide on being marked.

    Partagé - Those that share or offer blood up for all vampires and not just to a single one like a Pomme.

    Pomme de Sang - “apple of blood”, a person that is a vampire's regular blood source and treated much like a beloved mistress. When you talk to a Pomme de Sang, you are pretty much addressing the vampire themselves.

    Renfeld - A human that has been so deeply rolled, that the term slave is more applicable, their will and desires are no longer their own. They will literally die for the vampire who has dominated their mind.

    Rolled - Hypnosis on a person that makes them complacent or forget something.

    Sire - The vampire that turned you. Its also considered bad form for turn and then abandon our Chylde.

    Sourdre de sang - “fountain of blood”, the vampire at the head of a bloodline. It is considered bad form to attack one. Their power animates other vampires tied to them.

    Stalking horse – a pretend leader that prevents people from knowing the true identity of the actual one. A front or trick.

    Trimuverate - When a Master vampire 'marks' their animal to call and a human servant into a tri-old of power sharing.

    Breaking news May 19th


    A few vampires have gone missing in the last few days only to show up later unharmed and just a bit frazzled. Their last memory was of being in Cartoid doing some heavy drugs, their time lost is a complete blank and there isn't much concern other than to watch your consumption at this point. There has been no incident reported to the Kiss that is out of the normal and nothing on the news that isn't out of the norm for the city with crime and relation to the regular bad stuff that happens on a daily occurrence. A few muggings, break ins, the stocks dropping.... the normal stuff.

    -OOC notes - there are two currently not having a fun time in the prompts but rather than ruining their surprise with this update, we can assume they have not reported in yet to make this a more prominent issue.
