From the White Wolf catalog:
- D.C. by Night
- Washington DC, a city born of the swamps, offers vampires a treasure beyond all measure: power. In this place where even mortals have might once undreamed of, the undead strive for influence that their peers can only envy. The best try, but only the most devilish succeed.
- The Capital fears more than just vampiric politics, though. The Kindred fight gun battles in the Southeast; drive off werewolves, mages, and others who covet their dominance; and clash with the many vampire hunters who call the city home. D.C is a dangerous place for the undead, but its rewards outweight its dangers.
Chapter One: IntroductionEdit
A short story, "Power Games", an overview of the book, notes on the vampires and clans who hold power, the mortal power structure, and how to get to D.C. and get around it.
Chapter Two: HistoryEdit
The mortal and damned history of D.C, beginning the initial Brujah claim of the city through the change of power to the Tremere's bid for power during the Civil War to the coming and eventual triumph of the Ventrue.
Chapter Three: GeographyEdit
A full description of the diverse city of Washington, the surrounding areas, the kindred (and supernaturals) that call each spot home, and the areas considered Elysium.
Chapter Four: The DamnedEdit
A breakdown of each clan's influence and place in Washington politics and city life. Most powerful include the Brujah, Gangrel, Malkavians, Nosferatu, Toreador, Tremere, and Ventrue.
