Dark Eras are historical settings for the various gamelines of the Chronicles of Darkness, similar to the Dark Medieval of the Classic World of Darkness.


For 2014, Onyx Path did not present a new game line- instead each of the previous nine game lines is expanded with an evocative and appropriate historical period. Each Dark Era is being created by a developer and writer; for example, Ethan Skemp takes his award-winning Changeling: The Lost to France during the Era of powdered wigs, treachery, and flashing blades. For the first time, Onyx Path used Kickstarter to construct this book using direct feedback from the fans during the process and increase some Eras’ word-count or add entirely new Eras as the community pushes for their favorites.
