The Clinton Street Theater is the second oldest operating movie house in the city of Portland and one of the oldest continually theaters in the United States. CSTPDX features a mixture of grind house, music films, political documentaries, experimental films and weekly showings of the Rocky Horror Picture Show (with Shadow Cast).

Supernatural

Though the Clinton Street Theater isnít in a neighborhood run by the Carthian Movement it is rumored to have been home to the Firebrands for as long as the theaterís been open and no oneís cared enough to dispute that rumor. And while Hosford-Abernethy is Ordo Dracul feeding ground the Carthians have made it known, under no uncertain terms, that the patrons of the Clinton Street Theater are considered off the Rack and off limits for fangs. While this may rankle the Dragons, it hasnít bothered them enough to do anything about it, yet.

Often times there are Cacophony messages written into the previews and advertising messages at the start of the eveningís film.

Vampire Territory (All), The Circle of the Crone (Vampires), Kalkula-held (Vampires)

A small hole in the wall gallery that would be easy to miss if you didnít know where it was Gallery 903 prides itself on the art of creation and features showings by both established and emerging artists, often focusing on immersive pieces.

Supernatural

The name of the Kalkula run gallery is no coincidence, but instead is seen by Acolytes who follow the faith to be a divine sign from the Dark Mother. The numbers each hold religious significance to the cult, 9 (The Dark Goddess Herself, Kali) 0 (The Void) 3 (Perfect Creation and Femininity). While the art in the main gallery is innocuous enough (though sometimes quite controversial) itís through the back door and down to the basement level that the real art of 903 and the Witchís displays of creation lie. There are paintings on stretched leather, the flesh likely human, depicting images from the mundane to the profane. There are sculptures of bone and flesh and plaster and wood. The air in this basement seems to vibrate with devotion of Acolytes.

Mamaís Crow Bar is small dive that is the center of Portlandís live music scene. There are six beers on tap, a grip of brews in bottles and nothing stronger, seriously thereís no liquor and the bartenders laugh at anyone who orders any (you can get a can of soda, but expect to be seriously overcharged for it, like $5 for a can). Thereís live music every night, across all genres, thatís loud enough to make conversation difficult to overhear and about 30 years of graffiti, stickers and band fliers on the wall.

Supernatural

Chances are if youíre looking for a Carthian youíll find them at Mamaís Crow Bar, or at least youíll find someone who knows how to find who youíre looking for, for a price of course. The apartment upstairs serves as a Movement only space for casual meetings and business. Additionally thereís a secret bolt hole in the basement that you can only get to if you know which kegs to move.

Cacophony messages are intermixed with the ever present graffiti on the wall beside the stage.

The main campus, located on Marquam Hill (known by students as ďPill HillĒ) is home to the universityís medical school as well as two associated hospitals. Additionally the full campus has many satellites throughout the city and partnerships with companies and research laboratories all over the state. Not only is OHSU one of the top ranked medical schools in the country with a number of thriving medical practices, but it is also a host of a number of internationally renowned researchers who serve as faculty.

Supernatural

In the basement, well past the many utilities closets that house chemicals and out of date, unworking and otherwise unused medical equipment of all kinds, and past a near labyrinth of dusty and dimly lit halls there is a door with remarkable security measures. Accessible only by a frequently changed code typed into a keypad and a dna encoded card is the Ordo Draculís playground. With offices for all that want them, the bowels of OHSU span across all of the buildings on campus, accessed through a number of underground halls that seem to not be on any architectís plans of the campus. Behind the locked doors youíll find everything that youíd need for experimentation in the work to rid yourself of the curse of vampirism and spit in the face of God. And with all of the bustle from students and overworked administrative staff, who really notices when a student or a cadaver or two go missing?

The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) contains three auditoriums, including a large-screen theater, planetarium, and exhibition halls with a variety of hands-on permanent exhibits focused on natural sciences, industry, and technology. Transient exhibits span a wider range of disciplines.

Supernatural

To the untrained eye many of the displays, though fascinating are completely mundane. But to those with an eye for such things, there is no doubt of the influence of the Elder Dragonís touch here and there. Make no mistake, the OMSI is as much a shrine to the ingenuity and experimentation of the Dragons as it is to the mortal realm.

Talisman

There are four islands in the middle of the Willamette River and Ross Island is the main island. Mined for years by the Ross Island Sand and Gravel (RISG) it was purchased recently and turned into a private nature preserve. There is no access to Ross Island from the other islands, the only way there is by boat. There is a single dock that is patrolled by armed private security and visitors are quietly encouraged to quickly move on.

Supernatural

Ross Island has been the home for The Circle of the Crone’s rituals and festivals for as long as they have been residents of the city of Portland. For a long time The Acolytes controlled the islandís ritual area through blood magic but recently found it easier to deal with the prospectors and miners by purchasing the island entirely and closing it off from the public. Now with privacy the island has turned from nature preserve to horror show of witchcraft. Hidden by the thick canopy of leaves and the close press of trees are piles of stripped bone, their origins unidentifiable. There are small sticks and bones tied together as talisman in a variety of shapes as wards and protections that hang from limbs, draped with vines. There are pools of blood mixed with ash and herb. The trunks of many trees and many of the larger stones have been either painted or carved, depicting the visage of Goddesses, other deity, and bodies in a plethora of positions denoting expressions ranging from agony to ecstasy and everything in between. In the center of the island there is a circular clearing, the grass underfoot having been burned away. In the center of the clearing sits a stone table, the stained top worn smooth by decades of use.

A semi-private booth

Housed in what was the front parlor of the Feng Mansion in Arlington Heights, The Dragon Den is an elite social club where the rich and influential meet with one another to socialize, play the political games of the wealthy, and cut deals. Profit, by any means necessary, whether social or financial, is its stock-in-trade. The room is furnished in dark woods and lush leathers with private booths for meetings to be had away from prying ears.

Supernatural

Though this is a Vampire controlled property it is open to all Factions of the city, by invitation. Those who show up without are quietly but quickly escorted out by large and capable guards and given a firm suggestion that they never come back, lest they invite more severe consequences. Fortunately, though, invitations are not hard to come by for those who can make good conversation with its owner, Naomi Gracen. All previous markers or signs of ownership are removed or covered over by new markers.

Unlike your traditional church the National Sanctuary of our Sorrowful Mother (or the Grotto as itís popularly known as) is an outdoor shrine, sanctuary and botanical garden. Comprised of 62 acres of meticulously kept green space, just minutes from downtown, the Grotto is a draw for both tourists and locals of all faiths and creeds. The heart of the Grotto is a rock cave carved into the base of a 110-foot cliff. A life-size marble replica of Michelangeloís Pietŗ is featured in its center.

Supernatural

Off the beaten path, shrouded by a dense grouping of fir trees where itís impossible to find unless you know where to look, is another cave thatís been carved into the cliff. This one however is used as a meeting space for the Lancea et Sanctum and is also home of the cityís frequent Midnight Mass. The space is stark, there is no sight of the lush green, and while there are pews for the masses they are rough carved from stone, without the comfort of polish or smoothed edges. Here is there no sign of the comfort of the Blessed Mother Mary, there is only the cold fact of Godís wrath.

Built out of the shell of an old cathedral, the Rectory now stands as a mockery of its previous faith. The once hallowed ground now stands testament to an entirely new form of worship. At all hours of night, every night, persons of all walks of life walk in and out of this place looking for something they can’t find anywhere else. One half nightclub, one half BDSM dungeon. This place is the perfect place to come to spend your nights.

Supernatural

Beneath the surface of the throbbing music and the flashing lights, the Rectory hides a darker edge. And that edge that there are always predators roaming through the masses on the dance floor. Or taking their prey down into the lower depths of the club to feast. This club functions as the Rack for the Kindred of the city of Portland, provided you obey the rules. Do not, and the consequences can and will be dire.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. is the world leader in serving science. Theirís is a mission to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer. Thermo Fisher has offices, research labs and distribution centers around the world though their Portland office seems home to some of the most promising advances in science and technology.

Supernatural

Though the bulk of the Dragons have their offices and laboratories at OHSU Thermo Fisher Scientific belongs entirely and totally to Constantine. It is the unfortunate Kindred that finds out what it is exactly that he does there.
