Laws of the Court

The First Law

The Tradition of Masquerade.
Above all else, mortals hate and fear what they do not understand. They must never truly understand the Damned. They must know only that hunters lurk in the darkness, waiting to devour.

The Second Law

The Tradition of Progeny.
All vampires realize that the act of the Embrace diminishes some aspect of the self. The moral blame for each Embrace falls squarely on the individual sire, rather than the vampiric society as a whole that allowed it.

The Third Law

The Tradition of Diablerie.
The abomination of the Amaranth. The Amaranth, is a sin and a distraction from moral unlife, and that those who engage in it suffer from corrupted souls and should be put down for the benefit of the entire race.

The Forth Law

The acceptance of Domain.
Those Acknowledged by the Praxis holder, or any that might visiting the domain, accept they fall under the Domain of the Praxis holder"

The Fifth Law

The Destruction of Kindred is not permitted.
Only in the most dire circumstance of Heresy, can destruction be tolerated. Those determined to be criminals of the most serious crimes, can expect to spend the remainder of their requiem in internal torment, never again to see the night sky, remaining there until their final day of Judgement.

The Sixth Law

Elysium will be respected.
None shall defile, destroy or disrespect the Elysium, it's contents or those that find peace there.
