A City Thrice Damned
Welcome to Rome, the self-considered seat of the Roman Empire. By day, the (oft-absent) Emperor rules with the aid of the ineffectual Senate.
The nights belong to the Emperor, too, nominally. But the real halls of power belong to the Camarilla, the subterranean Chamber of the Senex.
The Senex assume the legislatorial powers of the living Senate – well, that is the Senate from before the days of Caesar. In fact, the Senex itself represents the will of Senex – childe of Remus, founder of the Necropolis. The torpid emperor of dusk, blood and sin.
