Well, I’m about to start running the last “book” in the trilogy I’ve been running for Exalted for about two years or so now. After that, I’m thinking I’d like to run some Nightbane (AKA Nightspawn).
I’ve been reading through the core book for Nightbane, and while it’s been a few years since I’ve run the game, I think it’ll be something I can easily drop back into. I’ve written up the clarifications I like to use for the rules, which do tend to be a bit clunky and occasionally contradictory, and I think I’m set.
I believe I’m going to set the game in London, England. I figure it’s got enough spooky places and legends to really do the setting justice, as well as having that edgy/angsty feel that I want to convey in the game.

My premise for the game will likely be having a Night Priest working in one of the major religious sects within the city. Maybe St. Paul’s Cathedral. Not sure though. Basically, he’ll be trying to subvert the English government into disolving it’s current government, and re-instating the Monarchy as an actual ruling family again. Thus enabling one of the stronger Nightlords to place an Avatar on the throne. Year for the campaign would probably be the current year at the time the game starts.
To those of you who’ve been to London, what was the spookiest thing you came across while you were there? What impressive sites do you think would be important to give a good impression of the city?
