IC History

In the Summer of 2017, the Syndicate once again attacks Casa di Cavalieri. Casa di Cavalieri is victorious in the conflict, and it is learned that the Syndicate originated from the Portland area. The current Lune,Luca , decided to send a group to set up an Outpost to both further the pack's interest in trade, and also to keep an eye out for any future Syndicate activity.

Since the year of its establishment, the amount of members coming and going to the Outpost Camp steadily increased, and in the Spring of 2021, the camp was dissolved and the members of Casa's Portland Outpost claimed an old wharf building in Portland's Old Port - this building was once the Harbor Fish Market and had been being used on and off as a fishing wharf for Luperci until Casa staked its claim.

The members of the Outpost took the next year fixed up the dilapidated building to the best of their ability, turning the many rooms within mostly into quarters for the members.

The Sylvie

During the renovation of their new claim, the members of the Portland Outpost purchased a retrofitted human sailboat from local Luperci fishermen. After a bit of sprucing up, the vessel was named "The Sylvie" in remembrance of the Outpost's longest lived member, Sylvie Agnès, who managed to make it to the ripe old age of fifteen years before passing.

The small sailboat can hold a total of five adult Luperci and can be driven by as few as two. It is seaworthy, but only in relatively calm weather. It is used solely for fishing and small trips around Portland's harbor.


IC Procedure

Characters may freely come and go to the Portland Outpost but must make the leadership in Casa di Cavalieri aware of their intentions and length of stay. Many families choose to go to Portland to start their families in a more civilized society than what Casa di Cavalieri (and Nova Scotia in general) can offer. Messengers are often hired or chosen from inside the ranks to make the couple weeks journey to the Outpost and back so that the two groups can be in healthy communication with each other.

OOC Procedure

Players have the option of requesting their aNPC character be moved to the Portland Outpost where it assumed they remain active and part of Casa di Cavalieri's society without having to worry about the 2 month aNPC policy removing their character from the board. Characters living at the Portland Outpost do rescind their title from Casa di Cavalieri proper, and will be ranked accordingly in the Outpost's hierarchy. (e.g., Cadets become Ensigns, Officers become Lieutenants)

Characters are implied to remain at the The Outpost indefinitely unless their player reaches out to leadership and requests otherwise.
