Hey guys I'm brainstorming ideas for an upcoming VTM game and figured I'd see what other people thought.
It's set in 1860s Wilmington NC, just before the American Civil War and I plan to run it through to 1865 after the war ends.
The players will be a newly shovelheaded pack of Sabbat created to aid in the capture of the currently Cam city, then prevent it from being retaken.
I've looked up IRL timeline stuff for the area and fairly close maps. I also looked up Cannon cWoD timelines to get as much background fluff as possible.

If you have any ideas let me know.

There's a book, "Port Town at War: Wilmington, North Carolina 1860 - 1865", by Richard Everett Wood.

And here's an article, "City of the Dead : The 1862 Yellow Fever Epidemic in Wilmington, North Carolina"

My gaming group doesn't have the focus to do a heavy politic style game yet, most of their experiences has been dungeon crawls in D&D/Pathfinder. I'm hoping this game will get them more interested in role play rather than simple power fantasies of one fight after another for no greater purpose than to level up and get better gear.
I figure the Sabbat is a good middle ground as it gives them lots of combat and they'll need to role play adopting a path on enlightenment or lose themselves to the beast. I hope it'll get their beaks wet for more character driven stuff in the future.

I don't generally like sabbat much, but in your situation I think it's a good fit. That will probably help transition your greenhorns from hack n slash to melodrama nicely.

I'd say one thing that may help you is make a list of old-timey era appropriate Names for you to apply to NPCs on the fly. Also, maybe look into some old business names or make some up. Just flavor suggestions really, you're already on the right track with looking up the geography and history of the place. Being able to pull random period appropriate names and places out of you hat will help further keep the setting feeling fully fleshed out.
