Overview

It came to my attention that people just don't know about the other members of their clans and covenants in Australia, nor where to find a summary of all such groups. Here is a (hopefully) extensive list of those said groups.
Please do not make changes to this page without speaking to the GST. The formatting and layout is important for clarity purposes.

Important Information

If you would like your clan or covenant group added to this selection, please contact the GST (gst.requiem.cof@beyondthesunset.org.au) with a summary of your group, number of players (if any), and a contact person!

Before you claim to join ANY Family, House, Movement, Circle, Creed, or Mystery listed below you MUST speak with the Contact for information or to join and confirm your concept with work with the family values. Failure to do so will be penalised due to the great level of disrespect it shows, and may even result in desanctioning of your character for breach of the C.O.C. (breaching the Be Excellent to Each Other rule).

  • Many of the Daeva Roe work within the Underworld fields, drugs, smuggling, international crime and prostitution.
  • If you are interested in playing as part of the Daeva Roe, the majority of new members are likely to be offered ghouling first. Ghouls in the Daeva House are seen as extremely important and highly valued, many of the current players were long-term ghouls or have had long-term ghoul companions in their backstories. Ghouls are friends, not food.
