This is the Public Records for Madison Under Siege. All the information contained within this folder is viewable by the public. During the current situation and the fact that players partake in leadership roles of Madison. Consider the information herein to almost be common knowledge between the leadership.
Some things your character might not know. We leave much of this up to the discretion of the player and enthusiasm he/she has for our game. If you know allot about the WoD you will probably get to use that knowledge to better understand our metaplot and as leadership sometimes you know things you shouldn’t.
What you see in here and in the WoD books you have read is only one version of some kind of truth that is possibly riddled with lies.
Known to the world as “77 square miles surrounded by reality,” this city is a beacon of hope in a sea of darkness. Last year, the four major powers: Garou, Kindred, Mages, and Hunters created the Gahara Pact, a supernatural pact to fight the darkness that sieges this world.
The Avatar Storm has come and gone, changing Mage society and much of the Umbral landscape. This allowed for the Nephandi to enact a plan of almost complete control over the Mages of this world. In Madison this gave rise to a rebellion that overthrew this evil leadership. But this has come at a great cost. Jay Dee the Founder of Madison has been destroyed and although the Nephandi leadership has been disposed of, this has allowed old rivalries within the Traditions to rekindle. Will the delicate balance between the Traditions that Jay Dee created in Madison fall into chaos?
The Withering has destroyed the power of Generation for the Kindred. Now they must learn how to survive in this new political landscape, where skill is more important than age or Generation. In Madison this has empowered the Anarchs and allowed them to join forces with the rest of the supernaturals in Madison to destroy the powerful Antediluvian or the God named Set. However with the external threat destroyed and with the Tremere Rebecca Troy’s death, will the Camarilla loyalists be able to disrupt the balance that she created and prevent this Anarch control from continuing?
Imbued Hunters have arisen to fight and understand the supernatural, as if something is reacting to the darkness that sieges this world. In Madison they have gathered to form a School for the Imbued and have joined forces with what could be called the “good” supernaturals. This is up for debate however and many within the school don’t see this as a “good” thing. Will the death of Redmond the Founder of the School, will they stray from the path he put before them?
Garou continues their failing battle with the Wyrm and Weaver, as humanity continues to fall to corruption. With the death of Walter will they continue to work with Vampires or will they open old wounds. Many of the Garou do not agree and no true leader has yet to emerge for the Sept. Will this infighting continue and destroy any hope for a united Garou in Madison?
In the wake of the Maelstrom, the Wraith Empires have been wiped from the Tempest and Shadowlands. By inhabiting the bodies of the dead, many Wraith and Spectres have found a way to escape the Maelstrom and make it back to Earth. Others have escaped to the digital web and some even say the Umbra…
These events and many more have led to the World of Darkness becoming a much more dangerous place. The world hasn’t ended, but it sure has changed since the 90s!
Now Madison may not look as bright as it once was but there is still hope and the creation of the Gahara Pact between Mages, Vampires, Werewolves, and Hunters has the potential to help that hope bloom or wither. An official meeting of the Gahara Pact has been set to vote on a charter for this fragile alliance. The next two days are even more important than the destruction of Set…

When in the field, she tries to witness and document supernaturals habits and culture. She seeks to attend supernatural events and represent Academy Hunters. Her specialties are Germanic languages and Vampiric Studies.
Samantha is an enthusiastic student of the world she has found herself in. One of her favorite cartoon heroines was April O’neil, and Samantha feels that she is living something close enough to her hero’s life. For Samantha’s active imagination, vampires, werewolves, wizards, and every other thing under the sun or moon, are no big leap for her, and she has a great thirst to know more about them all. It is no surprise to anyone within the Academy that Samantha has gravitated towards Prof. Lily Raditch, and joins her in the field to witness and document supernatural events that Academy Hunters were invited to.
Arlen is a practical man. He believes in practical things. But his world was shaken when he was the only survivor of an explosion. When it was made plain to him that another world existed, a dark sinister world, he did not take it well. He retreated into himself mentally, and physically within his home. It took a year for Arlen to gain a bearing on this new reality and his place in it. When the Messages told him to go to Madison, he went right away. It did not take long for him to find the Academy, and for them to take him in, and show him their way to Hunt. Arlen now does all he can to help keep spectres from worsening the lives of good, hard working people.
Natalia’s skills as a hunter have become a bit of a legend to the Madison area. The students of the Academy aspire to reach her level of ability. The other faculty respect her humility and straightforwardness. Natalia struggled at first with the Academy’s teachings, but learned to show restraint and hone her abilities in a direction toward investigation. She best uses her skills to help rid Madison of “supernatural problems” that are reported around the city.
Richard’s memories begin just about 7 years ago. He remembers waking up on a bench one morning in James Madison Park, in the downtown Madison area. His only guidance was from the Messages. Through them he was able to make contact with the Hunter Academy, and has been working with them to combat supernaturals around the world. Before that, his time had been confusing and violent. Richard’s state was tragic, but as he works with the academy, he is beginning to feel like he belongs.
Jessica’s desire to fit in and feel accepted is reflected in her own welcoming persona. Since her imbuing, she has always had a positive view of supernaturals, and is able to find something nice to say about each that she meets. She sees their existence as amazing, beautiful and rare. As a new student at the Academy, her abilities have not yet been tested. As a result, some of the other more seasoned members dote on her. Her abilities as a fighter are undeniable, however.
Gary Holmes – Metalsmith/Melee Weapons Instructor Creed: Zeal Virtue: Defense
Gary is a large, be-muscled man with a solid understanding of his place in the world. He see’s himself as a legendary adventurer and some sort of father figure to the rest of the academy, even more so now that Prof. Redmond Thatcher, the Academy’s founder, has died. When not hunting nefarious and dangerous supernaturals, Gary, as a professional metal worker, and swordsmith, practices his craft, and creates useful items for himself to combat the darkness. His prize creation is “Florence,” his watered-steel longsword.
Roger Allen – Chief Technology Officer, Lead Data Miner Creed: Vision Virtue: Hermit
Roger’s abilities with anything computer or electronic are top notch. He maintains the network at the Academy and is in charge everything computer related. His intelligence has been an enormous asset to the Academy for a decade. What seems to give him an edge over that are the messages he receives. On more than one occasion, Roger’s life had been saved by a last moment message telling him to go another way. Meanwhile, few hunters report getting messages of any kind, beyond the ones that brought them to the Academy years ago.
Dominique is a broken woman trying to fix herself in the only way she knows how, by fixing others. It wasn’t long ago that she was living an upper class lifestyle, and now, after losing her wealth and status, she seeks to rebuild. She acts as a mother figure over the other hunters in the academy, though she doesn’t seem much older herself. When not hunting Dominique loves to socialize and listen to everyone’s stories.

Earlier this year Aadhira uncovered the truth that the Nephandi had infiltrated the Euthanatos and taken over the leadership. Not only that but the Council of Mages in Madison were almost all tainted.

Its cities never repopulated after the Avatar storm and are now literal ghost towns. Lacy helped the Alliance focus on Earth and what was happening to the humans. Although she is was part of the council her voting rights have been revoked since the new Council was formed in 2006. However in 2017 she broke a deal with Leah and in giving support to her for Representative of Mages in the Gahara Pact she would become a full member of the Mages Council with full voting rights and Hollow Ones would be seen as the 10th Tradition.

His connections with the Technocracy in Madison and the rise of fighting between the two groups did not look good when Jay Dee requested that Madison not retaliate on the recent attacks by the Technocracy and to do more investigation into what was going on. Alexander used his status as an Arch Mage to overrule Jay Dee and with the backing of the Order of Hermes Jay Dee was asked to step down. Jay Dee is still considered on the Council and is second in command and still considered the Leader of Madison’s Order of Hermes.

1832 AD: In the Black Hawk War, Sac, Fox, and Kickapoo Native Americans, led by Chief Black Hawk, who had been relocated from Illinois to Iowa, attempted to resettle in their Illinois homeland on April 5, 1832. On May 10 Chief Black Hawk decided to go back to Iowa. On May 14, Black Hawk’s forces met with a group of militia men led by Isaiah Stillman. All three members of Black Hawk’s parley were shot and one was killed. The Battle of Stillman’s Run ensued, leaving twelve militia men and three to five Sac and Fox warriors dead. Of the fifteen battles of the war, six took place in Wisconsin. The other nine as well as several smaller skirmishes took place in Illinois. The first confrontation to take place in Wisconsin was the first attack on Fort Blue Mounds on June 6, in which one member of the local militia was killed outside of fort.
There was also the Spafford Farm Massacre on June 14, the Battle of Horseshoe Bend on June 16, which was a United States victory, the second attack on Fort Blue Mounds on June 20, and the Sinsinawa Mound raid on June 29. The Native Americans were defeated at the Battle of Wisconsin Heights on July 21, with forty to seventy killed and only one killed on the United States side.
The Black Hawk War ended with the Bad Axe Massacre on August 1–2, with over 150 Native Americans dead and 75 captured and only five killed in the United States forces. Many of the Native American warchiefs were handed over to the United States on August 20, with the exception of Black Hawk and White Cloud, who surrendered on August 27, 1832. Black Hawk moved back to Iowa in 1833, after being held prisoner by the United States government.
MUS – During the Black Hawk War the Werewolves go to war with the Order of Hermes that is trying to build a Temple on their Holy Site that is now Madison Wisconsin’s Capital. After a failed attempt to take the construction site the Werewolves worked to ambush the unprotected surrounding areas attempting to kill any member of the Order of Hermes that tried to enter the Area. The Dream Speakers took a Neutral position but after the war started negotiations with the Order of Hermes to have an Ambassador stationed in Madison for improved relations between Werewolves and Mages
1834 AD: The resolution of these Indian conflicts opened the way for Wisconsin’s settlement. Many of the region’s first settlers were drawn by the prospect of lead mining in southwest Wisconsin. This area had traditionally been mined by Native Americans. However, after a series of treaties removed the Indians, the lead mining region was opened to white miners. Thousands rushed in from across the country to dig for the “gray gold”. Expert miners from Cornwall, England, formed a large part of the wave of immigrants. Boom towns like Mineral Point, Platteville, Shullsburg, Belmont, and New Diggings sprang up around mines. The first two federal land offices in Wisconsin were opened in 1834 at Green Bay and at Mineral Point. By the 1840s, southwest Wisconsin mines were producing more than half of the nation’s lead. Wisconsin was dubbed the “Badger State” because of the lead miners who first settled there in the 1820s and 1830s. Without shelter in the winter, they had to “live like badgers” in tunnels burrowed into hillsides.
Although the lead mining area drew the first major wave of settlers, its population would soon be eclipsed by growth in Milwaukee. Milwaukee, along with Sheboygan, Manitowoc, and Kewaunee, can be traced back to a series of trading posts established by the French trader Jacques Vieau in 1795. Vieau’s post at the mouth of the Milwaukee River was purchased in 1820 by Solomon Juneau, who had visited the area as early as 1818. Juneau moved to what is now Milwaukee and took over the trading post’s operation in 1825.
When the fur trade began to decline, Juneau focused on developing the land around his trading post. In the 1830s he formed a partnership with Green Bay lawyer Morgan Martin, and the two men bought 160 acres (0.6 km²) of land between Lake Michigan and the Milwaukee River. There they founded the settlement of Juneautown. Meanwhile, an Ohio businessman named Byron Kilbourn began to invest in the land west of the Milwaukee River, forming the settlement of Kilbourntown. South of these two settlements, George H. Walker founded the town of Walker’s Point in 1835. Each of these three settlements engaged in a fierce competition to attract the most residents and become the largest of the three towns. In 1840, the Wisconsin State Legislature ordered the construction of a bridge over the Milwaukee River to replace the inadequate ferry system. In 1845, Byron Kilbourn, who had been trying to isolate Juneautown to make it more dependent on Kilbourntown, destroyed a portion of the bridge, which started the Milwaukee Bridge War. For several weeks, skirmishes broke out between the residents of both towns. No one was killed but several people were injured, some seriously. On January 31, 1846 the settlements of Juneautown, Kilbourntown, and Walker’s Point merged into the incorporated city of Milwaukee. Solomon Juneau was elected mayor. The new city had a population of about 10,000 people, making it the largest city in the territory. Milwaukee remains the largest city in Wisconsin to this day.
MUS – Werewolf and Mage relations improve after a short but bloody war. The Mages come out on top allowing for the development of the surrounding city. Mages also secured many holdings throughout the wilderness in these Treaties.
1836 AD – Wisconsin Territory was created by an act of the United States Congress on April 20, 1836. By fall of that year, the best prairie groves of the counties surrounding Milwaukee were occupied by New England farmers. The new territory initially included all of the present day states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa, as well as parts of North and South Dakota. At the time the Congress called it the “Wiskonsin Territory”.
The first territorial governor of Wisconsin was Henry Dodge. He and other territorial lawmakers were initially busied by organizing the territory’s government and selecting a capital city. The selection of a location to build a capitol caused a heated debate among the territorial politicians. At first, Governor Dodge selected Belmont, located in the heavily populated lead mining district, to be capital. Shortly after the new legislature convened there, however, it became obvious that Wisconsin’s first capitol was inadequate. Numerous other suggestions for the location of the capital were given representing nearly every city that existed in the territory at the time, and Governor Dodge left the decision up to the other lawmakers. The legislature accepted a proposal by James Duane Doty to build a new city named Madison on an isthmus between lakes Mendota and Monona and put the territory’s permanent capital there. In 1837, while Madison was being built, the capitol was temporarily moved to Burlington. This city was transferred to Iowa Territory in 1838, along with all the lands of Wisconsin Territory west of the Mississippi River.
MUS – Jay Dee creates the capital on a Node. He has the approval of the Horizon Council and has sent open invitations to all of the Traditions to set up Chantries in Madison if they so wish.

1837 AD– Start of Queen Victoria’s reign.
1846 AD – Mexico is forced to sign over a third of Mexico to the U.S. for $15 million. Marx and Engels issue a Communist Manifesto.
1847 AD: In December 1847, a second constitutional convention was called. This convention resulted in a new, more moderate state constitution that Wisconsinites approved in a March 1848 referendum, enabling Wisconsin to become the 30th state on May 29, 1848. Wisconsin was the last state entirely east of the Mississippi River (and by extension the last state formed entirely from territory assigned to the U.S. in the 1783 Treaty of Paris) to be admitted to the Union.
With statehood, came the creation of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, which is the state’s oldest public university. The creation of this university was set aside in the state charter.
In 1847, the Mineral Point Tribune reported that the town’s furnaces were producing 43,800 pounds (19,900 kg) of lead each day. Lead mining in southwest Wisconsin began to decline after 1848 and 1849 when the combination of less easily accessible lead ore and the California Gold Rush made miners leave the area. The lead mining industry in mining communities such as Mineral Point managed to survive into the 1860s, but the industry was never as prosperous as it was before the decline.
1850 AD – By 1850 Wisconsin’s population was 305,000. Roughly a third (103,000) were Yankees from New England and western New York state. The second largest group were the Germans, numbering roughly 38,000, followed by 28,000 British immigrants from England, Scotland and Wales. There were roughly 63,000 Wisconsin-born residents of the state. The Yankee migrants would be the dominant political class in Wisconsin for many years.
A railroad frenzy swept Wisconsin shortly after it achieved statehood. The first railroad line in the state was opened between Milwaukee and Waukesha in 1851 by the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad. The railroad pushed on, reaching Milton, Wisconsin in 1852, Stoughton, Wisconsin in 1853, and the capital city of Madison in 1854. The company reached its goal of completing a rail line across the state from Lake Michigan to the Mississippi River when the line to Prairie du Chien was completed in 1857. Shortly after this, other railroad companies completed their own tracks, reaching La Crosse in the west and Superior in the north, spurring development in those cities. By the end of the 1850s, railroads crisscrossed the state, enabling the growth of other industries that could now easily ship products to markets across the country.
1855 AD – The first Imperial Moot is called in North America, held on New York City’s Manhattan Island. During the Imperial Moot a Rite of Caern Building was enacted, in which the vast number of Garou present supplied an unheard of amount of Gnosis to create a caern amidst a city already in the thrall of the Weaver. The revel that followed was also reputably impressive. The caern created there is better known by the name of the sept that tends it in the modern day: the Sept of the Green.

Otto also learns of a Local pack of werewolves that call this area home and have a claim to the land. Both Rebecca and Otto avoid the werewolves as best they can while learning what they can of them.
1861 – Lincoln is elected president as the Civil War starts.
Wisconsin enrolled 91,379 men in the Union Army during the American Civil War. 272 of enlisted Wisconsin men were African American, and the rest were white. Of these, 3,794 were killed in action or mortally wounded, 8,022 died of disease, and 400 were killed in accidents. The total mortality was 12,216 men, about 13.4 percent of total enlistments. Many soldiers trained at Camp Randall, which currently houses the University of Wisconsin’s athletic stadium.
Most Wisconsin troops served in the western theater, although several Wisconsin regiments fought in the east, such as the 2nd Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment, 6th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment, and 7th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment, which formed part of the Iron Brigade. These three regiments fought in the Northern Virginia Campaign, the Maryland Campaign, the Battle of Fredericksburg, the Battle of Chancellorsville, the Gettysburg Campaign, the Battle of Mine Run, the Overland Campaign, the Siege of Petersburg, and the Appomattox Campaign.
The 8th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment, which fought in the western theater of war, is also worthy of mention, having fought at the Battle of Iuka, the Siege of Vicksburg, the Red River Campaign, and the Battle of Nashville. The 8th Wisconsin is also known for its mascot, Old Abe.

In the evening a gas jet ignited a newly-varnished ceiling in the capitol building. A night watchman on his rounds smelled smoke. The Capitol had been wired for electricity, but some gas jets were still in use.
The Capitol had a $20,000 sprinkler system and was connected to both the city water supply and the state supply, which was located atop UW-Madison’s main hall.
An engineer at the university had drained the tanks on top of Main Hall while cleaning a boiler. Gov. Robert La Follette telegraphed a request to Milwaukee and Janesville for help. Both responded in record time, loading their equipment on trains. The Milwaukee Fire Department made it to Madison in 96 minutes, but they found the frigid weather had frozen the pumpers, and they had to wait for them to thaw.
Volunteers, including hundreds of university students, also fought the fire. La Follette ran into the building again and again to save state documents and directing people as they removed records and furniture. The students climbed ladders to the upper stories where the State Law Library was and began pitching books to the snow banks below.
The fire burned on for 20 hours. The entire structure except the north wing burned to the ground.
Unfortunately, La Follette had ordered the State Historical Society to return the revered remains of “Old Abe,” the bald eagle that accompanied the Wisconsin 8th Regiment in the Civil War, to the Capitol just a year or two before the fire. So the stuffed body of Old Abe also went up in the blaze.
MUS – The Capital is set on fire. Many supernatural events happen this night. The death of the Lords of Madison happens at the hands of Werewolves and evil spirits. A Tremere’s adept dies in the fire along with the Baali.
