Author's Dedication:

A great many people assisted me in planning and writing this book. Rather than thanking each of you individually (and risking the inadvertent omission of someone's name), I should instead like to take the opportunity and the space here to say, "Thank you." Your ideas, suggestions and support were more appreciated than I probably let you know at the time. I hope this makes up for it. Also, special thanks to the Factory Squad for playtesting New Orleans by Night.

New Orleans by Night is the city sourcebook for New Orleans in Vampire: The Masquerade.


From the White Wolf catalog:

City of Beauty
Fabled New Orleans, with its breathtaking buildings and romantic history, is the picture of elegance and sophistication. It is both vibrant and dignified; the elegant jazz music born in the city's streets reflects its soul. No other city so mixed its grace and its passion.
City of Sin
But there are vampires here. Any place so alive cannot help but attract the immortal parasites who seek to steal this life energy for themselves. The Damned are an intrinsic part of New Orleans. They built it... and they may tear it down.
New Orleans by Night includes:
  • A detailed description of New Orleans, including the bloody history of its founding and the bloody intrigue that threatens to destroy it.
  • Mighty Kindred from around the world who made their way to the Big Easy.
  • "D'Jabbic", a complete Vampire story immersing characters in New Orleans' evil.


Book One: New Orleans by NightEdit

Chapter One: IntroductionEdit

Chapter Two: HistoryEdit

Chapter Three: GeographyEdit

Chapter Four: CharactersEdit

Chapter Five: CoteriesEdit

Other groups active in New Orleans include mages, Setites, the Sabbat and the Triad of New England (detailed in Dark Colony).

Book Two: D'JabbicEdit

A five-part story set during and around Mardi Gras, in which the players are tasked with investigating an assault on the city's Kindred that threatens the Masquerade – an investigation that crosses paths with Samuel Haight.

Unusually for a published Vampire: The Masquerade story, a number of sidebars give guidance for how to best adapt the material to a Mind's Eye Theatre live action game.

Background InformationEdit

In the Chronicles of Darkness setting, New Orleans is the signature city of Vampire: The Requiem, and is detailed in Vampire: The Requiem First Edition and City of the Damned: New Orleans. The Prince of that city, Augusto Vidal, was likely named as an homage to Vidal Guilbeau, the one-time Prince of New Orleans as described in New Orleans by Night, similar to how the contemporary Prince of Chicago in the Chronicles of Darkness, Maxwell Clarke, was likely named for Maxwell, the former Prince of Chicago in Chicago by Night.
