* CrapsackWorld: No place is truly safe in this reality: you can have gated and walled communities, sure, but that doesn't stop the Brotherhood from air-dropping a bunch of vampires into the middle of it. Even the most fortified areas, full of hunters, aren't entirely safe, as the Brotherhood is fully able to exploit what actually makes them fortified, such as vampire-melting UV lights, and destroy them.
