Thanks, glad to help.

If you're not familiar with "Southern Gothic" or "Southern Gothic Horror" American literature, you should be. Your campaign absolutely reeks of it. Think mint juleps, Spanish moss, crumbling antebellum plantation houses, overbearing pride, inbreeding, social isolation, violent madness, terrible family secrets, and horrible atrocities committed before, during, and after the American Civil War.

Some of Cherie Priest's early novels absolutely nail the aesthetic I think you're looking for, although they're mostly set around Chatanooga or Northern Florida rather than NOLa. Truman Capote's "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" is absolute must-read/must-watch.
