Okay, heres the idea I've had for a while. I'm not too sure if it would work or not considering I don't know very much about Werewolf: The Apocalypse, Mage: The Ascention and Hunter: The Reckoning. I do know quite a bit about Vampire: The Masquerade and I'm willing to give the ST role a shot, but I'm not all too sure if anyone else would be interested or not. So heres the pitch:

The adventure would most likely take place in one of the major cities (London, Detroit, Chicago, Denver, Seattle, you get the idea.) The adventure would first take place in a local pub or bar where the group meets up with whomever summoned them together. Now, the characters can be Mages, Werewolves, Hunters and Vampires but I would prefer to keep the numbers restricted considering theres popularity with Vampires and Werewolves. Other oWoD based creatures can be welecomed as well. Just need some help with others who have more knowledge about the other oWoD books and campaigns. As for the city itself, it's a neutral zone for all oWoD creatures to hinder around. Theres is one important rule in the city: No Bloodshead. Personal vendettas, feuds or old rivaries must be dealt with outside the city. The city itself is a complete elysium where all the oWoD creatures can move around freely and peacefully. The city itself shuld be big enough for the creatures to claim territories placed out for them. For example: Northern part is in Werewolf Domain, Southern part Vampire, East Mages and so on. Downtown is neutral territory where all creatures meet up and enjoy themselves. Control of the city is through a council which has representatives from each Creature. Many of which have power over the domains. Through the council, laws, rules and enforcement are set up by mutal terms and agreements accordingly to be fair for all. The speaker for the council would be someone who would have experience as a Prince or something like that. Overall though, the prince does not have the final say. He would only oversee the citys peace and tranquility.

The adventure would first start out with current modern characters meeting up with an experienced character. From there, it would jump back in time to the Dark Ages where the adventure first started. Through the adventure, the players are required to create a new character for each time period. (One for Dark Ages, one for Victorian Age and one for Modern.) For battles, that is of course determined by moderators and such. The group at first is unknown to the players. So the modern characters walk in with no knowledge about what is going on spare they have been summoned. The group would be known as the Circle of Beasts. An old covent that had been long since believed to be dead. However, they have somehow survived the first few encounters and grew back in numbers creating chaos within the oWoD. Their next target is the city where the modern characters are located.

That should be it. I hope it was enough information for you all. If there are any questions feel free to ask and I'll try to explain some things. Right now, I would prefer if this pitch actually makes it into an actual campaign for the consortium to have other STs with me that have more knowledge about the other WoD creatures than I do. I only know a bit about VTM. I should be able to research more about it so that I can be more helpful as an ST. Hopefully my first time will be alright.
