Whispers speak of a terrifying, deadly affliction that attacks only vampires. A disease that only appeared recently, but its swift lethality has already destroyed countless undead. A sickness with no cure, and one that even inhuman creatures cannot endure.
They call it the Psychoplague—it destroys the mind first.
This mental necrosis advances over several weeks, slowly draining sanity, until a sudden brain aneurysm brings death. There is no known cause, nor process of contagion. Even medical attempts to scan and examine the patient’s brain reveal nothing, until the instantaneous moment of rupture. In under a minute, the vampire dies, whimpering or screaming in indecipherable hysteria.
In between victims of the disease and strange disappearances, over half of Las Vegas’ vampiric population has vanished in 1999. Some have blamed these unnerving events on the presence of the Fourth House. Their mysteriously sudden, almost simultaneous appearance seems far too unnerving to be a mere coincidence…but no one can establish a link between them.
Stay tuned for more lore in the following weeks! There is much still to uncover about the strange occurrences of 1999…
Tomorrow, we’ll be doing a dev stream at our usual time: 0730PST/1030EST! We hope you’ll stop by to join us. :)

If we were to base it on his special ending, will Randal make an appearance in Paradisus? (Question clipped for Red Embrace: Hollywood spoilers)
While he won’t be making an appearance as an actual NPC—a certain ending in RE:P will hearken back to Randal, and provide some interesting new context for all of RE:H’s special endings. Everything is canon in its own way~
