'...Do not be so quick to dismiss the importance of Norwich or to disparage Matilda's power. The Barony may be a minnow, but it occupies a strong strategic position. One which may prove key in the coming conflict. You must learn to look past the physical appearance also; her Ladyship may be a pubescent wench with a tenuous grasp of the current world, but she is an elder of significant age and stature. The possession of one would assist our plans... holding both may prove decisive...'
Excerpt of letter from Baron Shawlands of Manchester, 1903.

A new century, a new monarch; but the weight of the past sits heavily on East Anglia. Country estates staggering under the weight of old debts and uneconomic agriculture, presided over by aristocrats ignoring the present. Ports slowly silting up as the new ships of steam and steel sail elsewhere. Ambitious Kine leaving in droves the stagnant, backward urban areas for a better life. And Norwich, sitting in the centre; proud and ancient, yet only vaguely aware that the march of history has long left her. Kindred wags in Elysiums quip that the situation of the city is identical to it's Baron.

Yet, the very backwardness is pleasingly comforting to many Kindred; so often creatures of habit. The inhabitants, less so; several elders, so deeply entrenched in local affairs to the extent that most would see any innovation as a direct threat to their power, or simply to their little world organised to their liking. Change is a rather unwelcome event, but like it or not, the region cannot remain aloof for ever. But that does not mean some elders will not attempt to halt the march of history as much as Caine's gifts allow.

Perhaps in a slight concession to the changing world, Baron Matilda has made it - ever so slightly - easier for new Kindred to settle within the Fief. This does not mean many Kindred wish to make the journey, even if they could; it could not be said the Malkavian has a reputation for impartiality, permissiveness or even predictability. However, this does not mean there is no opportunity in the region for a young Kindred of daring, drive and ability. Admittedly, luck too.

Quite a lot of it, in fact...
