Los Angeles by Night is a sourcebook for Vampire: The Masquerade about the chaotic state of L.A.'s kindred society since the Second Anarch Revolt drove the Camarilla out and left the Anarchs to form a government that developed into little better than packs of Cainite street gangs.


From the White Wolf Catalog:

Call to Battle
Passionate and fiery, Los Angeles burns with an excitement found in no other city. It has become the center of fashion, art — and the Anarch Movement. Fifty years ago, the streets ran red with Elder blood, and the anarchs claimed the city for themselves. They stood poised to make it a land unparalleled in Kindred history.
Call to Destruction
Now it is unparalleled in violence. The anarchs who swore eternal brotherhood when they drove out the Camarilla have formed gangs and now battle each other nightly for control of the city's neighborhoods. The leaders of the Revolt can only shake their heads in sadness, for their speeches fall on deaf ears. On all sides enemies gather, drooling at the opportunity Los Angeles presents.


Chapter One: The Big Orange

The standard introduction, including suggestions for book usage, an overview of the current political stances of the Camarilla, Sabbat, Anarchs, and the four independent clans, notes on the Garou and the mages of Los Angeles, information on mortal Los Angeles, and suggested reading, viewing, and listening for a proper mood.

Chapter Two: History

When the white man took over what was to become Los Angeles from the peaceful Gabrielinos Native Americans, significant events were set into motion. When the first kindred Christopher Houghton arrived in 1828, all hell broke loose. However, Houghton began using his power and influence to build the city into its modern form, including developing its fledgling film industry. An exiled Brujah, Jeremy MacNeil, arrived and convinced Houghton to the Anarch cause; however, the figurehead Prince Houghton had put into power would not allow it. In 1944, MacNeil finally gathered enough Anarchs to kill the city's elders, including the Prince. The Anarchs have since held the city... but for how much longer?

Chapter Three: Geography

The mortal geography of Los Angeles, and the Kindred and Garou territories within.

Chapter Four: The Damned

Details on Kindred gang life in Los Angeles, threats within and outside of the city, and how the Anarch Free State is run.
