HD: CBN Website - The new website is up and running again! The old hosts decided to be dipshits, so we had to find new hosting. We found a new host, and its up again!

Message Board - The message board is there, it does work, I know, I've seen it! Use it!

Online Die Roller (MUST Have!) - There's a link for this in the pulldowns too, under Die Roller

White Wolf Online - Does this really need an explanation?

Vampire the Masquerade Quick Start - This site is currently nonfunctional, but we are looking for a new one, be patient

Hearts of Darkness: Chicago By Night - This is our main room, dedicated to the dark World of Darkness and the city of Chicago's spawling population, supernatural and mundane alike. This is where you'll find most of the action in Chicago in the World of Darkness, this being the underground element of the city. Join in the fun!

Chicago, the Windy City. A bastion of civilization, the city is home to more than the ordinary, average mortals that walk its streets by day and night alike. In a city filled with the unnatural, the supernatural and more, there is a place that is darker still, where humanity and supernatural mesh into an underworld of treachery, deceit, violence and mayhem. This is the Chicago Underground.

While in the city proper, the machinations of the Cainites, the Garou and other supernatural creatures goes marching on without end, the constant battle for control and the crime and perversions of the underground prevail in the darker recesses of the Inner City.

Here, the Sabbat, Anarchs, Black Spiral Dancers coexist side by side with the motorcycle gangs, Mafia, drug dealers, street gangs, gun runners and other felonious criminals, perpetuating the crime machine that is the criminal network of the Chicago Underground. Be warned before you enter, that crime and mayhem prevail on these streets. Enter not lightly into the deeper darkness.


The Council of the Room are as follows:

Caramba Chickie (Room Owner)
Psycho Circus (Creator of the original room and technical advisor/artist)

Possibly more to be added later

ALL Members of the Council have boots and are allowed to boot from this room. The "official" moderators for the room are:

Caramba Chickie
Psycho Circus

In addition, the following people also have permission to boot in here, aside from the obvious (such as Darkthorne, Darkeyes, etc):

To be announced. We're currently re-evaluating and restructuring our hierarchy

Site rules and room rules WILL be enforced.

The following are rules for playing and interacting within Hearts of Darkness: Chicago Underground. Please take careful note of them. Ignorance of the rules is no excuse and those who break them will be booted from the room. Included in these are the fact that while observers are welcome, you ARE REQUIRED TO USE A NAME, AN ACTUAL, REAL NAME OF SOME SORT, observing or not. If you're too damned lazy to type Bob or Sue or something similar, you're too damned lazy to roleplay. Don't bother if you fit into the pathetic lazy category. That leaves room for all the people who are actually interested in roleplaying and having a good time! This may not be a site rule, but it is a room rule.

Also, when you come in, PLEASE give someone a chance to greet you before you just leave, or start making snide remarks. Some people may be away, or multitasking, or they may even be posting. In either event, it may take a few moments before they can get to the room or finish posting, change the pulldowns and say hello. People who come in just long enough for the room to load and then hit the leave button are annoying, and wasting time for themselves and for us.

1. This room is Old World of Darkness, but primarily focuses on the mortal elements, though supernaturals do exist here, and are often played (they must be registered with the main room's board and have a character sheet on file to do so). Mortal characters in this room (this does not include the main room) do not require a character sheet or a bio. NOTE: The room is open to all of the World of Darkness systems. In order to play a supernatural character in Chicago Underground, you must have a character sheet on file with the main room, and be recognized as a legitimate character there. To play a mortal character in Chicago Underground, a character sheet is not required. For Chicago Underground, you do have to reserve a model on the forum, however. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Character sheets ARE required for supernatural beings only in Chicago Underground. Players WITHOUT an APPROVED character sheet will be recognized as unenlightened/Unawakened mortals only. Resources for all the Old World of Darkness systems will be made available for use by request. Character sheets for all types of supernatural characters are required. I know this has been said many times, but it cannot be stressed or explained enough. You may play as a guest for a week, without a sheet, but no powers may be used during this grace period. If you like the room and intend to continue playing, and wish to have the powers of your chosen character type, you must submit a character sheet at that point.

NO FREE FORM will be allowed. Ever. Not in full or in part. NO FREE FORM means NO FREE FORM. NO OTHER WHITE WOLF systems will be allowed. This means no Exalted, Aberrant, Trinity, etc. No Novas, Lunars, New World of Darkness, etc. Old World of Darkness Characters are the totality of what is allowed.

2. Please keep all Out of Character (OOC) to PM as this disturbs the roleplay that is going on. Please do not post private information, such as names, IPs, addresses, phone numbers, etc in public. This is a roleplaying room, not a dating service. Further, all site rules for Roleplay Oasis WILL be enforced and followed. You should know them if you chat here.

3. Any death spars must be approved by the Room Controller/Council before they occur, and must follow the rules and precepts set forward on the website pages, as well as concur with the rules for combat used within this room. That combat system is primarily the normal combat system used in the World of Darkness table top settings. This involves the rolling of initiative, rolling dice for attacks and damage, etc.

4. This is a limited kill per rule number 3, as well as the rules on the site (this means read the site , people), and a capture zone, as long as the rules are obeyed. This means no bullshit raids conducted "because I wanna" or some such stupid reason or other, and other obviously and blatantly ignorant reasons. Be realistic. The level of security on the homes and business grounds is high enough that none that are not residents (or at the very least, members of the room) would be able to enter the places without being noticed by security, either electronic or magical or physical. Even then, they would need to possess the necessary skills, talents, or knowledges, and be able to make the prerequisite number of successes for such a breach to occur. You can't simply waltz in because you wish to.

Nudity is a touchy subject.� If done tastefully, we can handle that, especially for the dancers in clubs and roaming around the alternative lifestyle places.� No gaping orifices, spread or flopping genitalia or anything of that nature.� Think Playboy, not Hustler.

5. Any that break the rules that are listed or disrupt the roleplay of the people that live here will be given three chances and then booted. This room is for fun, not for aggravation and those that reside here have worked too hard to have their fun tampered with. That alone will be taken as a sign that you wish your ass booted to the next roleplay life. You don't like a bunch of crap, we don't like a bunch of crap, so don't bring or give us a bunch of crap and everything will be just fine.

6. The word of the Room Controller and Council is FINAL. There is no argument after a decision has been made. You may appeal, NICELY, if you wish, but for the most part, what's done is done. This includes, but is not limited to changes in the rules, or anywhere else it suits the Council to make changes, etc.

7. Most importantly...HAVE FUN, hell, its what we are all here for.
