OOC History

As the earliest date for the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, December 21st is held to be the night of the year when the darkness lasts longest. This made it an ideal ceremonial occasion for the vampires here, so the Storytellers decided to begin hosting a special game as close to this night as possible. The first Longest Night Ball premise was to commemorate the establishment of Seattle as a Camarilla domain in 1909, with the first OOC event being held in December 1999. We have continued the tradition ever since, although the IC premise and theme for the gathering change from year to year.
