The Classic World of Darkness is the setting for White Wolf's series of Storyteller games of gothic horror. Other settings for this family are based around various historical settings in the same world. This setting refers to a geographical subset of the books, relating to the Far East.
The lands of the Orient are separated from the rest of the world by more than just distance. The supernatural creatures of this area are distinct from their Western equivalents, almost alien in their strangeness. From the complex political structures of the Kuei-Jin vampires to the Beast Courts of the Hengeyokai shapeshifters, a whole new World of Darkness exists full of mystery and conflict.
