Summary[edit | edit source]

From the White Wolf Catalog:
Chicago isn't corrupt.
It's passionate.
Genuine.
Willing to do whatever it takes
to be the city it wants to be.
And corrupt.
- Maxwell, Vampire Prince of Chicago
The Windy City Beckons
Chicago lies at the center of the web that is the American heartland. Tendrils of power, wealth, and reward stretch outward, ensnaring the selfish, greedy, and unwary. Yet, Chicago attracts its predators, too. Creatures that would have the city for their own, spinning their own webs of malice and intrigue. But among the city's towering skyscrapers and wind-swept streets, who is the spider and who is the fly?
