Setting/Background thoughts:

Dark Day began July 3, 2014 at 8:02 AM EST.

1) Within minutes the sudden overload of the electrical grid causes brownouts or blackouts in major electrical grids.

2) Within hours lawless behavior and rioting happens in all major cities. Martial Law is declared to try to curb the riots and panic, though in some places the national guard units are equally panicked and join the rioters. The Government takes control of most Media outlets and strictly limits the Internet.

3) Many sightings of "Monsters" are reported, but are mainly considered to be the result of mass hysteria.

4) Draconian measures are used to quell the worst riots, many in the military are simply glad to have someone in authority telling them what to do. In general, peace is restored in the US.

5) Estimates have it that as much as a Billion people world wide died during Dark Day, in some places as much as 30% of the population was killed.

Other countries have similar responses, but some are much different. In the Middle East, for example, Radical Islamist groups, claiming this is a sign from Allah, attempt coups in many countries or stage major attacks on Israel.

When Dark Day ends, the President keeps Martial Law in place until well into 2015. However, eventually restrictions are eased and a massive propaganda campaign starts painting Obama is the savior of the country and Hillary as his right hand through the crisis.

Despite the Martial Law, there was a continued increase in violence, generally reported in the media as Mass Shootings (this is one reason given for the extended Martial Law). However, behind closed doors at Homeland Security, it is an open secret that most of these events involve "Monsters"

Astoundingly, at least by all polling leading up to the Election, Donald Trump wins the 2016 election as a Republican. Even though the Republicans win a majority in both houses of Congress, progress is slow due to continued Democrat attempts to block Republican lead initiatives (aided by those Republicans who refuse to back the "Outsider" Trump).

BEHIND THE SCENES:
There are 7 Master Vampires on the Earth who have secretly pulled the strings on many governments, keeping the human masses as "cattle" or perhaps "sheep", depending on perspective, and keeping the number of Vampires low so as to hide their presence. There is 1 Master Vampire on each continent except Antarctica, but 2 in Asia (the one in the west of Asia also controls the Middle East).

On Dark Day, the Night Lords replaced a number of key figures worldwide with Doppelgangers or other minions who obey them, though many others were left alone.

In the United States, the Vampires have lately (for about the last 60 years) concentrated on control of the Democrat party, and of the people through a variety of Social Programs designed to increase dependency on the Government and by control of the Media. A few key Republicans are controlled to keep them ineffective. The sudden replacement of many key figures with others not under their control left them scrambling. Unable to gain control of many of those replaced, and unable to replace them en mass as their enemies did, they resorted to the tactic of suddenly switching their support to the Republicans and selecting a candidate who has not been replaced...thus removing many of the replaced LEGALLY. Special care is being taken to prevent any more key officials from being replaced,though several attempts have been made.

The Vampires have not yet determined who or what their true enemy is, as the Night Lords are outside the experience of any living Vampire. Possibly a Vampire Intelligence may know, if one could be summoned into the world, but the Masters are each reluctant to allow the other to amass the power required to do so.

The Vampires know of the Nightbane, they have been portrayed as monsters and beasts through history to help keep the people turned against them (and under Vampire Control). The sudden emergence of so many Nightbane has them concerned, but for the most part they have adopted a "keep hidden and manipulate them" approach. Only the Wild Vampires are free enough from the control of the Masters to break the low profile...and those who do are hunted down and destroyed to preserve the secrets of the more powerful.

The Night Lords, on the other hand, know much about the Vampires. They were able to learn from the Doppelgangers of those controlled by the Vampires. Even Doppelgangers of some of the humans who have become Vampires still exist, though the link between the two is cut when the human spirit is replaced by the Entitial Shard. This enabled the Night Lords to know who to replace to take over the existing Power Structure. They are rather upset that the Vampires were somehow stage a Trump win and many of them are upset that Martial Law was not kept up to prevent the election.
