London is the modern Babylon...

... so said Benjamin Disraeli more than a century ago. Today, this is truer than ever. Almost every race, creed and colour on the face of the globe finds representatives amongst the city's more than seven million inhabitants.

London: The Modern Babylon is a Vampire: The Masquerade 20th Anniversary edition setting based in London, England.

The setting is largely, but not completely, based on White Wolf canon. The most important difference is that the Gehenna metaplot never happened. The Ravnos Antediluvian never awoke, and its clan remains largely intact. . The Sabbat did mount a major offensive on the American East Coast in the 1990s, and the Camarilla counterattack did retake New York, but Xavier never had his fateful encounter with Leopold, and never led the Gangrel out of the Camarilla - the Clan of the Beast remains a full member of the Sect. Nor has ur-Shulgi awoken and shredded the Tremere curse on the Assamites; the Assamite clan remains unable to commit Diablerie. Tremere remains in torpor beneath the chantry in Vienna, and the Tremere antitribu still exist, although Clan Tremere has been devoting a lot of effort to exterminating its renegades over the past few years.

The setting is also a modern-day continuation of the Walls of Blood game on this site, and so follows its "canon" as well.
