At the dawn of a new Crucible, the hostility of the previous era at last ebbed and faded away. The local kindred, tired of the violence, largely united behind a Gangrel Invictus named Solomon Pierre L'Enfant.
Prince L'Enfant, in order to cement the peace, bequeathed to each Clan certain territories across the newly unified Praxis of Northern Iowa. Private agreements concerning these deeds are rumored to have been a central part of how Prince L'Enfant acquired the Praxis.
Clan Daeva: Marshall County (~30,000)
Clan Gangrel: Franklin & Wright Counties (~33,000)
Clan Mekhet: Story County (~24,000)
Clan Nosferatu: Boone County (~27,000)
Clan Ventrue: Cerro Gordo County (~25,000)
Carthian Movement: Hamilton County (~19,000)
Circle of the Crone:Calhoun County (~17,000)
Invictus: Hardin County (~21,000)
Lancea Sanctum: Greene County (~16,000)
The following Counties were held by the Praxis and were declared neutral grounds were visitors and the unaligned might feed:
- Humboldt County (~13,000)
- Webster County (~34,000)
During the earliest years of the Praxis, kindred affairs were largely centered around the city of Fort Dodge, one of the largest and most rail-accessible cities in the Praxis.
Prince L'Enfant’s reign was one of peace for the most part. However, in the waning years the changes that had taken place in the mortal world began placing great pressure again upon the local kindred. Territories that were initially of relatively close population and prestige had changed dramatically.
By the close of WWII, with focus once again returning to local affairs, many of the Clans and Covenants were clamoring for a reworking of the territories that were based on historic claims. The matter proved a hot topic and one not easily resolved even by Prince L'Enfant's careful diplomacy. No one wished a return to the violence of the previous era, but a large number of kindred were also categorically opposed to changing grants that were supposed to have been given in perpetuity.
By 1960, with the matter not yet resolved after more than a decade of discourse and greater inequality than ever in place it seemed that violence might again erupt. This was only foreclosed by the beginning of a new Crucible and Prince L'Enfant stepping down in favor of a new Prince who promised change.
Everything was once again up for grabs.
