The Nights of our Unlives
The California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3) is a nonprofit research and technology commercialization institute spanning three University of California campuses in the San Francisco Bay Area: UC Berkeley, UCSF, and UC Santa Cruz. QB3’s domain is the quantitative biosciences: areas of biology in which advances are chiefly made by scientists applying techniques from physics, chemistry, engineering, and computer science. Unknown to most, its UCSF site also holds the Chantry for clan Tremere here in San Francisco. Upon the taking of the city in 2000, the few members of clan Tremere who decided to study out west set up a Chantry in a more mystical setting, but issues with the site and the Primogen’s interest in medical research lead him to influence the building of a hidden portion of the campuses facilities to enable him to study in privacy. There are several entrances protected by both mystical and mundane means.
