Flowers in the Garden of Bones
While the Prelude develops your own individual Lead, the Pathways Map develops your own World of Darkness. Completing the Pathways Map gets you a cast of characters and a collection of locations to rival any comic book soap opera or Dickensian serial. This is exactly what a Storyteller needs to direct your episodes and build campaigns. You discover who owes you favors and to whom you are indebted, who you love and who you hate, and where everybody connects to the important people in your setting.
Take a look at the example Pathways Map. As you can see, the map consists of squares, circles, diamonds, and arrows. Each shape represents a different element of the campaign; the arrows show how those different elements are connected.
