Amsterdam is the capital and the most populous city in the Netherlands.

Vampire: The Masquerade

The Prince of Amsterdam in the Victorian Age was Ventrue Johannes Castelein.[1] In modern nights, it is another Ventrue, Arjan Voorheis.[2] William Thorbeck was Regent of Amsterdam's Tremere chantry until 1989, when he was destroyed by the Sabbat; his successor is his childe, Lille Haake. In the late 1990s, the Beryn family of Clan Giovanni began encroaching on the city, and Prince Arjan allied himself with a Sabbat agent, Hendrik van Dyck, to drive them out; Haake took the side of the Beryns, however, leading to an intense standoff.[3] The Amsterdam domain is part of the Consortium.

Werewolf: The Apocalypse

The Bone Gnawers of Amsterdam have an alliance of a sort with the fae Court of Tulips, allowing access to their caerns in exchange for help influencing the mortal government.[4]

Mage: The Ascension

The Arcanum has established a Chapter House in the city. [5]

The city is the headquarters of the Ancient Order of the Aeon Rites.[6][7]

Wraith: The Oblivion

Amsterdam's Necropolis is full of tall, narrow buildings jammed together at strange angles, as if the structures might topple over at any moment. As much of the city is built on peat bogs, some relic buildings are partially or completely sunk.

Amsterdam's role as a long-time hub of commerce means the wraithly population is quite diverse, including Jewish and Protestant Heretics and many active (though discreet) Guild members. William the Silent, known as William of Orange in life, served as Anacreon until the Night of Short Chains, when the Grim Legion occupied the necropolis. The Dutch wraiths were not prepared to resist the occupation, but the mounted a fierce resistance to it.[8]

Changeling: The Dreaming

Amsterdam is part of the Duchy of Tulips in the Kingdom of Flowers. Its ruler, Gwilliam of House Liam, rejected the strife of the Accordance War in Concordia in favor of finding a home for his much-maligned house in Europe. He became duke in 1980 and has fostered excellent relations between the nobles and the commoners in his Court of Tulips with the help of Count Dongahue.[9][10]

Hunter: The Reckoning

The Amsterdam Cenaculum is the Society of Leopold's clearinghouse for information for all the northern countries in Europe. It was founded in the 17th century, when Holland was the wealthiest nation in the world. Which is still reflected by the coffers of this Cenaculum.[11]
