From the White Wolf catalog:
- The City of God
- It sits at the crossroads of the world. Held by Islam, open to Christian pilgrims and longed for by the Children of Israel, Jerusalem is the magnet that draws three faiths to one place. It is here that East and West collide bloodily, where palmers from England and hashishin about their business can pass in the street. And it is here that Cainites gather, drawn by a power far greater than they can comprehend or fight.
- Afflicted by the Curse of Caine
- Enter Jerusalem by Night and learn its ways. Discover the ancient alliances and enmities that have outlasted kingdoms and Crusades. Meet the Cainites who have seen millennia from their perch atop David's city, and pay them homage. But beware, for while everyone is drawn to Jerusalem, only one can possess it.
