Ben Swainbank, the VtES storyline coordinator, has published the aftermath story of the VtES storyline event “Eden’s Legacy“, that took place from October to December 2009.
The top four of winning clans are these:
1. Brujah — 6 events won
1. Guruhi — 6
2. Ishtarri — 4
2. Malkavian — 4
The Laibon clans have a very strong result, due in no small part to the special rule helping the Laibon searching their library for a card when a Laibon is moved to the ready region.
The winning clans used the following motivations
- Secrecy — used by 18 winning clans
- Gehenna — 17
- Knowledge — 14
- Jyhad — 8
You can find more information on VtES storylines on the official storyline website.
As the clock ticks down towards midnight the fate of the Royal Order of the Edenic Groundskeepers and their deadly trove remains uncertain. Which faction will prevail and what do they want? The victories of four Methuselahs have been recorded but their motivation remains shrouded in mystery (Bologna, Brisbane, Cambell, Rome). Motivated Methuselah that launch their attacks in the year’s final moments could sway the outcome.
Tonight is the final night for Eden’s Legacy.
Tomorrow is the last day for submitting reports for the final tally.

Here are some diagrams on the VtES Storyline “Eden’s Legacy” that is currently still ongoing. The diagram to the right shows all clans with more than one win. The Guruhi are in the lead, but Brujah and Ventrue are not trailing far behind.
An interesting fact to note is that all four Laibon already have won at least one storyline tournament. I am not 100% sure, but I think that’s a first.
In the next picture on the right you can see the distribution of winning clan’s sect. This may not be 100% accurate, since technically you could play a “Harbingers of Skulls” deck with mostly Laibon vampires for example. Most interesting is that the Sabbat is narrowly in the lead, although three non-Sabbat clans are in the lead. Speaking of scatteredness of this sect …

More details on this storyline event in particular and VtES storylines in general can be found on the official VtES Storyline website.
A brief announcement for the next VtES Storyline Event named “Eden’s Legacy” can be found on the VtES Storyline website. It says:
For centuries the Royal Order of Edenic Groundskeepers conducted their clandestine research documenting the secret resting places of the Antediluvians and the Methuselahs. Scholars of the order mysteriously disappeared while researching a site near Mombasa. The order in endangered. The war to control their secrets begins.
The storyline is scheduled for Fall 2009.
Post Scriptum: According to the VtM book “Time of Thin Blood the Royal Order of Edenic Groundskeepers is a secret society founded in A.D. 1645 that seek first and foremost the resting-places of the Antediluvians. They are scholars who now possess the most extensive library of Kindred archeology in existence. An offshot of this group is the Imperial Order of the Master Edenic Groundskeepers, which was founded A.D. 1898. They gather the recruits and weapons needed for a full-scale assault on the purported 62 tombs of Antediluvians and Methuselahs.
