Campaign of the Month: May 2013
The Dark Queen of the West
Unlike clans, which may be thought of as families, a covenant is chosen by the vampire according to his or her beliefs. A vampire’s Sire’s allegiance nearly always plays a large role in their decision. A vampire may choose not to join a convenant at all; such Kindred are known as the Unaligned, or “Unbound.”
While covenants span the globe, they are not truly global organisations; their power is localised. While their practices and beliefs come from a common source, a Circle of the Crone group in Brittany may differ wildy from their counterparts in New Orleans, for example. In general, though, covenant members are accepted by their comrades wherever they travel, but since vampires do not generally stray far from their chosen cities, status in one city’s convenants may mean considerably less elsewhere.
