Vampire: The Masquerade
Beginning in the 19th century, southern California drew large numbers of young vampires, especially those sympathetic to the Anarch Movement. In 1944, with the Camarilla distracted by the war in Europe, Jeremy MacNeill instigated the Second Anarch Revolt in Los Angeles and ousted the city's Prince. The revolt spread through much of southern California, which was dubbed the Anarch Free State.
In 1998, the Quincunx began the Great Leap Outward by attacking cities all along the California coast. The newly acquired territory was dubbed the New Promise Mandarinate. The Mandarinate is headquartered in San Francisco, while in Los Angeles an uneasy stalemate has been reached among the kuei-jin, the Anarchs, the Camarilla and opportunistic Sabbat from Mexico.
