Chapter Five: Shiver Me Timbers – America’s Houses

Basketball has the NBA, football has the NFL, and North American vampires have the NAVR–the North American Vampire Registry. Sure, the Greenwich Presidium sets the ground rules, but NAVR is the enforcement wing. They register the Houses, the vampires, the positions and generally keep track of all things fanged in Canada, Mexico and the United States. Oh, and they employ me to write this incredibly helpful manual. (There’s a comment card in the back, and I get merit raises. You do the math.)

As of January 1, 2009, there are twelve official vampire Houses in the U.S. Each House (as an organization) has an official “House” (as a domicile) and an NAVR registry number. The lower the number, the older the House.

* – In an unprecedented move, the NAVR, with GP approval, established Murphy House to organize Rogue vampires living in the Kansas City metropolitan area. As an orphan, Richard Murphy was not Commended into a House prior to becoming Master.
