Roads and Paths

From Princes of Darkness Mod Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Religions in PoD have been interpreted as the Roads of Enlightenment of the World of Darkness. As such, they represent the way that Vampires cling to their humanity, and keep the beast at bay. Roads can vary wildly, and have very different views on some actions (like diablerie, mass ghouling etc). Some share similar tenets, but most have at least one specific to their faith.

List of Kindred faiths

Ashirra

The Ashirra(from ashira, Arabic for 'clan') is the sect under which Islamic vampires declare their faith in Allah, and which rules over Arabia and North Africa, beginning in the Dark Ages. Members of the Ashirra believe that redemption for the Kindred was among the promises Muhammad made if they chose to follow Allah.

Faith Description
Shepherds of Islam
Tariqelharb.png
A small, but very active part of the Ashirra movement, the Shepherds tasked themselves with protecting key figures of the cainite world. Many of these figures aren't even aware of their mysterious protectors. They have often come into conflict with the Setites of Egypt who hinder their effort in their native region.
Tariq al-Lail
Vianoctis.png
The Friends of the Night among Islamic Kindred. Fairly rare to begin with, the schism between the Christian and Muslim part of the Clan has made outcasts of both groups.
Tariq El-Alaam
Ashirra.png
Al-Shuhada of the Ashirra, these martyrs offer themselves as undead sacrifices so others do not have to suffer. They will willingly sacrifice themselves to stop corruption caused by anything considered unholy, especially demons or other Cainites.
Tariq el-A'Tham
Viaossium.png
Mainly an offshoot of the main Via Ossium in the Muslim world, the Tariq el-A'Tham benefit from older knowledge kept alive in this part of the world. Their sometimes callous practices can put them at odds with the zealous Ashirra or the vigilant Children of Haqim, though.
Tariq el-Bedouin
Tariqelbedouin.png
The Islamic Kindred's Road of the Beast. Zayyat, Tariq el-Bedouin's founder and close friend to the leaders of the Ashirra Caliphate, was cause for this road's close ties to civilization. Contrasting it from its Western counterpart.
Tariq el-Harb
Tariqelharb.png
The Islamic Kindred's Road of Kings. As there are few Ventrue in the Muslim world, this road is less prevalent than Via Regalis is in the West. Still, many sultans and emirs enjoy the exaltation of power it procures.
Tariq el-Sama
Ashirra.png
Cainites who were Muslim in life may choose to adhere to this Path under the assumption that Allah's plan for the world includes vampires. Hoping that continued obedience to His will might help them control the Beast.
Tariq el-Umma
Ashirra.png
The Road of Humanity for Islamic Kindred varies little from its Western counterpart. Both sides communicate often and share experiences with one another.

Faith Description
Apostles of the Third Caine
Davankh.png
The Apostles are an offshot of the Cainite Heresy that broke away from the See of Nod around AD 1000.

They are a reform movement within their faith, believing that their simple and austere ways will reveal the Third Caine, who they believe to be a mortal waiting to be Embraced.

Church of the Black Magdalene
Blackmagdalene2.png
Moving across Europe from their base in Marseilles to seduce and corrupt the faithful. They use the same doctrine as the Cainite Heresy, including the Blood Communion. They identify St. Mary Magdalene with Isis and the Gnostic Sophia. Magdalenite nunneries often serve as houses of 'temple prostitution' recalling the ancient fertility cults of the Levant--and they conceal bitter, blood-soaked rituals of castration an cannibalism from the darkest mysteries. Any lustful priest knows where his most lurid thoughts can find satiety, and common folk have begun identifying St. Mary Magdalene with the nameless 'woman taken in adultery' thanks to the cult's excesses. The almost pornographic 'passion plays' put on the Magdalenites on July 22 Feast of the Magdalene have been thundered against by priests across France. The Followers of Set deliberately send their brashest and least subtle members to begin Magdalenite sects.
Cainite Heresy
Davankh.png
The Cainite Heresy is a heretical belief that is practiced mainly by Christian Cainites, mostly but not exclusively by Lasombra vampires. It is steeped heavily in Gnosticism and employs a flock of human priests and clerics. Historically, the Heresy sprang forth from various blood cults in which vampires were worshipped as gods. Vampires, due their incorruptible bodies, their independence from the material world and the power that their Disciplines grant, were regarded by some Gnostics as creatures of higher spirituality and were sought after for teachings in exchange for vitae.
Calomena's Chosen
Calomenaschosen.png
The Chosen were founded by the Caitiff Stanislav. Founded in the Western Balkans, this cult seems loosely derived from the Bogomil heresy. The Chosen believe that Caine was a childe of the devil and this his children are the most vile manifestations on earth. Calomena, Caine's Twin Sister, is believed to be preparing to return an destroy the vile Cainites, cleansing the world for the glorious Spirit of God. The Clanless are her chosen instruments. They organize circles led by vampires with ghouls and mortal members. Stanislav was martyred in 1204 during the end of Michael's Dream and the Bitter Crusade, but his cult lurches onward to Gehenna.
Ecumenical Patriarchate of the Third Caine
Thirdcaine.png
This non canon religion has been commissioned by a Patron

Founded by Patriarch Aleksandr of the Vere-Imeja Sinod, this faction of blood gnostics bares many trappings of the mortal Eastern Orthodoxy Christianity

Eschatologists of Cappadocius
Eschatologists.png
A faction of the Graverobber Clan believe devoutly in the Cainite Heresy, although with a more Christological emphasis than the main sect. Eschatologists believe that they are the Brood both of Caine and Christ, and that offering their vitae to mortals is a sacrament in itself. Eschatologists travel the back roads of Europe and hold mass 'revivals' that feature amazing miracles of blood and discipline. The greatest of these assemblies occurs on December 17, the Feat of St. Lazarus.
Red Temptation
Davankh.png
The faith preaches that the appearance of Christ as the Second Caine had signaled the beginning of a great uprising against Ialdabaoth, the devilish creator of the physical world. All formers rules are to be abolished, and the followers are to embrace as many as possible and indulge in as much license as they are able.
Sancta Mater
Davankh.png
Starting from the same roots as the Gnosticism, Sancta Mater puts the emphasis on the divinity of Mary, believing that she is the holder of Sophia (the wisdom).\nBy worshiping Sancta Mater, one can hope to ascend from this false world and its corrupted warden, the Roman Church.
Swarm of Samael
Swarmofsamael.png
Controlled by the Baali, the Swarm holds that Ialdabaoth are twin heads of the same Beast. The Swarm emphasizes the eschatological traditions of the Euagetaematikon rather than the Blood Communion or Christological elements, but it rapidly reveals the darker mysteries of infernalism to the unwary. The Crimson Curia has no qualms about denouncing the Baali Heretical cults.
Via Pura
Viapura.png
In an era of increasing resistance to clerical authority, they’ve chosen Gnostic dualism as the sword best forged for their aims. The Zealots build religions with almost cynical calculation, drawing from Neoplatonism, apocryphal Scripture and other obscure sources. They’ve named themselves Katharoi, and support mortal Cathars (the same word, spoken in French and Latin) not as patrons, but spiritual guides.

Camarilla

In addition to preventing the growing mortals masses from discovering the existence of vampires, the Camarilla aims to maintain the status quo of Kindred society; as such, much of its structure and traditions mirror that of Cainite society in feudal Europe in the Dark Ages.

Camarilla (Anarchs)
Anarchrevolt.png
Most of the Anarchs respect and uphold the Masquerade and some of the other Traditions, even if they do not respect the vampires who enforce them or the system that benefits from them.

Under the terms of the Convention of Thorns, the Anarchs are considered a faction of the Camarilla by its members, but unlike the Sabbat, they are tolerated.

Camarilla (Humanity)
Camarilla.png
Kindred are encouraged to blend in with mortals as best as possible and to retain the civility and composure that comes from holding onto one's human characteristics. Almost all Camarilla members are on the "Path" of Humanity, with other Paths of Enlightenment being strongly discouraged and usually only practiced by elders.

Code of Tremere
Tremerecode.png
The Code of Tremere marks the Clan as unique among cainites; no other group adheres to a unified set of rules that delineate acceptable behavior. No compelling magic binds any Tremere to the oath, unless some stern Regent actively decides to enforce it; instead, the code is a de facto listing of what constitutes acceptable behavior for a member of the august House of Tremere. The code elaborates on what is expected of Tremere, and what activities would earn disfavor.

Ordos

Ordos were mystery cults of the Dark Ages, whose members were exclusively recruited from among vampires of the Malkavian Clan. The Ordos were dedicated to deciphering the scrying techniques of the Malkavians of old and unlock the potential within their madness to overcome the Beast. They were splintered across the Old World in small cults, each independent and only identifiable through their methods.

Daughters of the Sun
File:Zunist.png
A pre Islam Malkavian mystery cult, worshiping three Cainites 'Goddesses'. They have been exiled from Mecca and mostly driven to hiding by the victorious Muslim ashirra.
Eyes of Malakai
Ordomaleficus.png
Apparently worshiping the mythical twin sister of Malkav, this cult of crazy cultists often comes out from nowhere, leaving only madness and destruction in their path.
Jocastian
Anarchrevolt.png
A small and obscure sect (and possibly a Malkavian bloodline) who originated within the Sabbat as a Noddist cult, but who have since become independent. While most Jocastians are Malkavians, there are also some Brujah and other learned Kindred within their ranks. They are dedicated to unraveling the true history of the Cainites and are rivals to the Mnemosyne. Although some scholars regard them as a bloodline due to the practice that a master let himself be diablerized by a student in order to preserve the knowledge he has gathered, they are not any different from their parent Clan.
Mnemosyne
Davankh.png
The Mnemosyne, or Memory-Seekers, are a cult of Noddists comprised of Malkavian scholars; some suggest that the Mnemosyne are in fact a bloodline of the Malkavians. Their most prominent member is Aristotle de Laurent. Members of the cult seek knowledge of the history of Kindred, and most of them follow the Path of Caine. The cult is in conflict with the Jocastatians and, until recently, the Ventrue elder Bindusara. Its members practice a form of Diablerie; when an elder thinks his time has come, he allows younger Kindred to diablerise him so that his knowledge may be passed on. This is the reason why the cult is sometimes called a bloodline. The cult is named after the Greek muse of memory.
Ordo Aenigmatis
Ordoaenigmatis.png
This Ordo concerned itself with riddles and symbols, unlocking hidden meanings, deciphering myths and legends to achieve true knowledge over the world, themselves and the Beast.
Ordo Maleficus
Ordomaleficus.png
Few things are recorded about this Ordo, save that they were infernalists who sought greater mysteries with the aid of the Forces Beyond.
Ordo Ecstasis
Ordosecstasis.png
This Ordo concerned itself with trances and Frenzies, seeking to communicate with their Beast to finally sate it via extremes of both pleasure and pain.
Ordo Vaticinii
Ordovaticinii.png
This non canon religion has been commissioned by a Patron

This Ordo is obsessed with the prophecies of Gehenna.

Raktasadhus

The vampires of India share a common enemy in the Wan Kuei, making them likely to band together for a time.

Faith Description
Mayaparisatya
Mayaparisatya.png
The Path of Paradox owes a heavy debt to certain tenets of Hinduism. According to it, Kindred are locked perpetually outside the illusory cycle of the universe (maya). Whereas most beings are reincarnated through saṃsāra, a continual entanglement in the cycle of rebirth, Kindred have eluded that cycle. Every individual has his own purpose, or svadharma, although vampires, excluded from the cycle, have lost theirs.
Path of Daitya
Daitya.png
The Daitya revere Shiva, and claim leadership of all vampires who worship Shiva. The Daitya see their caste duty as a strange inverse of mortal Brahminism. As demons, they must fight the gods and strive to overthrow the moral order of the world. As Brahmins, however, they must strive to keep their fellow vampires within their own particular caste duties as murderers, tricksters, desecrators of sacred rites and all the other abhorrent roles assigned to demons.
Path of Devaraja
Devaraja.png
Followers of this path do not believe in some divine right to rule. Instead, they believe that they must earn the right to rule and rise to divinity in the eyes their people. The Divines do not create subjects and inferiors, but rather, followers and worshipers.
Rakta-sadhus
Mayaparisatyaold.png
The vampires of India practice a form of blood sorcery called Sadhana. Despite the fact that there are Indian Cainites who do not practice Sadhana, the plural term raktasadhus is still sometimes used to collectively refer to all Indian Cainites, largely because they have as of yet neglected to formalize their web of ephemeral allegiances into an actual sect or Court. Those allegiances might not even have come into existence at all though if it were not for the opposition from the Cathayan vampires of the Infinite Thunders Court of southern India and the Scarlet Phoenix Court of eastern India.
Samsara
Samsaraparadox.png
The modern Path of Paradox, also called Saṃsāra, is a creation of Ravnos neonates. It is not as rigid as the Mayaparistya, but also does not allow the wanton cruelty and hedonism of the Western Path. Its Ethics are the same as the Mayaparistya, but the Hierarchy of Sins has been modified to allow for interaction with vampires who do not follow the path.
Tariq el-Tanaqud
Mayaparisatyaalt.png
As the crossroad between the main Indian line and the decadent Western one, the Muslim Ravnos straddle both worlds but are also rejected by both. Outcasts and wanderers, they are loathed by the Ashirra.
Path of Paradox
Weigparadox.png
The Deceivers believe in a higher purpose for everyone, including themselves, other vampires, and mortals. Their task in life is to guide everyone to their higher destiny. If needed, this includes death, especially for Kindred they view as wayward and having fallen from their true destiny. Mortals are safer from these fatal punishments, as they are more directly involved with the life cycle of the universe.

Road of Beast

Followers of Via Bestiae control their Beast through the primal concepts of survival, strength, and individuality. Many members of the Road of the Beast choose a simple, animalistic existence to best serve the beliefs of Via Bestiae.

Faith Description
Path of the Noiad
Pathofnoiad.png
The origin of the Noiads has been forgotten by Cainite and mortal alike. In the mind of the Noiads, they always dwelt in the North, guiding and protecting the Sámi tribes in northern Scandinavia. The Noiads believed themselves divine beings, sent by the gods to guide and protect their chosen people from supernatural and mundane threats, as well as interpreting the omens of the Gods in the guovssahas. The relation between the Noiads and their tribe was somewhat symbiotic: the Noiad would protect the tribe from enemies and act as a guide, shaman, and teacher to them, while the tribe gave willingly of their blood and sheltered the Noiad during the long months with no darkness. In times of famine, the Noaid would ghoul members of the tribe to ensure their survival. The Noiad dwelled openly among the Sámi, and Embraced exclusively from this population. Those selected for Embrace tended to be those with talent for divination, as well as dream and star interpretation. The Noiad also watched children descended from families that included at least one vampire, looking for the traits they favored.
Via Bestiae
Viabestiae.png
Followers of Road of the Beast control their Beast through the primal concepts of survival, strength, and individuality. Many members of the Road of the Beast choose a simple, animalistic existence to best serve the beliefs of Via Bestiae, while others follow it by living a simplistic existence, akin to barbarians.
Einherjar
Vageinherjar.png
A Road practiced among the Norse vampires and serves as a reminder of the ancient ethics that the All-Father gave them. The Road teaches responsibility, courage in the face of adversity, and individual initiative. Many drive off the Beast by acts of iron-willed discipline and courage, such as watching the sun rising. Most of the followers of the Road are disrespectful, self-serving, and physical abusive to those they do not respect. Often, even the people they do respect are treated only slightly better.
Via Erronis
Viabestiae.png
For these Ferals following the Path of the Nomad, civilization and anything associated with it is anathema. They travel light, and they travel always. It has also been called the Path of Journies.
Via Feritas
Viaferitas.png
The Ferals on the Path of the Savage are the most prone to unleashing the Beast in fits of rage. Their fury is directed towards anything they consider weak, especially civilization. They strike often, and they strike hard.
Via Liberatio
Anarchrevolt.png
Often confused with the Furores, the Ferals on the Via Liberatio sees cities as a trapping and the death of the soul. They see their duty as freeing the trapped people towards a more pure, primal, way of life.
Via Praedator
Viabestiae.png
Ferals that follow the Path of the Hunter exist to prey on those they consider lower than them. To do otherwise is blasphemous. They also use their Beast as a tool to accomplish their hunts.
Via Tantabus
Viabestiae.png
Vampires that follow the all powerful Baba Yaga, the Hag of Russia. The only Nosferatu to have challenged their monstrous progenitor, the Grandmother is both admired and reviled in equal measure by her Clan.
Via Venator Umbra
Viavenatumbra.png
If there are any Ferals who do not loathe the concept of civilization, it is these following the Path of the Grey Hunter. Rather, they view towns and cities as a different form of hunting ground. They are the most civilized of the Ferals, but make no mistake, as they are no less capable of hunting than the others.
Yasaq
Viayasaq.png
A Road of the vampires of the Steppe, specifically of the Anda. It recalled many of the traditions of yasa (warrior-brotherhoods) among the Mongols. Followers of the Road of the Yasa were called Barbarians among Westerners.

Road of Blood

Since the curse put upon them by the Baali, Clan Assamite mainly follow this road of destruction and purification by diablerie. Each kill is only a temporary respite from an unending hunger.

Faith Description
Path of Righteousness
Banuhaqim.png
Watchers over Watchers, adherents of this path concern themselves with rooting out corruption and lack of resolve among adherents of the Road of Blood.
Tariq el-Haqim
Banuhaqim.png
Those who follow Via Sanguinus are among the most deadly to their fellow Cainites, as the act of diablerie is almost a rite of purification among the Sentinels. Indeed, one of the main tenets of the road are for its followers to purge all that are unworthy of the blood of Caine and purify the bloodlines.

Road of Bones

Kindred trying to understand death. Mostly followed by Clan Cappadocian.

Faith Description
Followers of Lazarus
Viaossium.png
The Followers of Lazarus, also called the Infitiores, were the Cappadocians who for one reason or another did not respond to the call that led to the Feast of Folly and thus avoided the culling of the Clan. Unsure as to whether they would have been spared and feeling betrayed by their founder, they effectively divorced themselves from the main body of Clan Cappadocian. Lazarus was informally considered the leader of the Infitiores.
Path of the Wheel
Viaossium.png
Members of this path believe that Vampires are stuck in outside of the cycle and must move on. They search for any scientific means to push all Cainites back into the cycle of life.
Road of the Abyss
Viaossium.png
The Mystics are immersed in the undying study of a force transcending and ultimately opposing all light and life. Humanity and concepts like right or wrong have little use to those who study the mysteries of the outer darkness.
Via Ossium
Viaossium.png
The followers of Road of Bones value knowledge above all else. Through intense study of the unknown, the Scholars keep their Beasts at bay. They will go to nearly any lengths to learn something new, but will not needlessly sacrifice themselves for a cause. After all, their own gathered knowledge is too important to let others handle. At the same time, Scholars do not fear death; they are fascinated by it.
Via Primordia
Viaossium.png
The Primordians believe in the 'Three', powerful spirits of Creation, Destruction and Preservation. They wait for a big event where the three spirits will merge into one Avatar. Strangely enough, it seems to be quite close to the belief of some Lupines.

Road of Heaven

Kindred trying to follow the guidance of the divine. This road encompasses many religions, sometimes even antagonistic ones.

Faith Description
Code of Samiel
Codeofsamiel.png
The greatest of Saulot's warrior line, the martyred founder Samiel is believed to have penned this road with his own hand. According to legend, Samiel received the core tenets of honor and wrath of the road during a visitation from Michael, commander of the Heavenly Hosts, while Saulot was away.
Consumptionism
Viadivinitatis.png
God is dead, diablerized by Caine. Then Caine sired another generation, and God's spark within him was divided. As such, Consumptionists think that no Kindred life must be slain... unless the spark of God within him is retrieved by Diablerie.

Cainites who were Jewish in life may choose to follow the Path of Life. They believe that HaShem created vampires along with the rest of the world, and thus the laws of the Torah still apply to them and provide means to control the Beast.
Divisionism
Viadivinitatis.png
God has shared His essence into all Kindred, but only the faithful are holy enough to deserve it. As such, divisionists seek to convert or diablerize other vampires.
Path of the Heavenly Abode
Viacaeli.png
Followers of this path believe that, in order to truly save a soul, the mortal body must be destroyed as soon as the soul has found redemption, in order to prevent further corruption.
Via Aesigard
Vageinherjar.png
The old Norse ways and traditions must be upheld, and vampires are no Gods or even chosen by the Gods. They are bound to fate, as every Norse is.

The wise Aesigard seeks to spread the Sagas so that the truth may be known, even if the end is already written.

Via Archangeli
Viaarchangeli.png
Following in Michael’s footsteps means acting as muse and shepherd to all, and as a martyr when need be. As adherents to the Road of Heaven, the Archangel’s Faithful view Michael as the risen Christ of the Damned and believe vampires must act the part of angels to their mortal herd.
Via Caeli
Viacaeli.png
According to the Gospel of Laodice, a Cainite holy text, the principles of some Via Caeli Roads stem from Caine himself. Although Caine was cursed by God, he was also closer to God than any other kindred who has ever existed. Followers of Road of Heaven attempt to control their Beast through religious devotion.
Via Christi
File:Catholic.png
Cainites who were Christians in life may choose to adhere to the Path of Christ, under the assumption that God's plan for the world includes vampires, and remaining obedient to His will will help them control the Beast.
Via Divinitatis
Viadivinitatis.png
The zealots of the Noddists and predecessors of the Sabbat, followers of this Road Consider themselves favored by God rather than cursed by Him, the Divinity followers seek control over mortals and appeal to as many Cainites as possible to join Via Caeli. This Path is considered by many to be the most deviant of the Road of Heaven.
Via Dolorosa
Viadolorosa.png
The martyrs of Path of Tears, these Noddists offer themselves as undead sacrifices so others do not have to suffer. They will willingly sacrifice themselves to stop any corruption caused by anything considered unholy, especially demons or other Cainites.
Via Noctis
Vianoctis.png
The Redeemers feel the weight of Caine's curse and their own damnation, even more so than those who follow Via Caeli. Also like the Noddists, the Redeemers seek redemption and forgiveness, and to earn it requires suffering and purification. However, instead of the fairly benign ways of the Noddists, the Redeemers actively go about the world of man, punishing and killing mortal sinners.
Via Penaculum
Viacaeli.png
The Faithful who follow the Path of Penitence consider themselves unworthy of God, the lowest of lowly creatures in his eyes. No path takes acts of contrition as seriously, for this is the only way these Cainites see to gain enlightenment and favor in the eyes of God.
Via Vindicta
Viacaeli.png
These kindred consider themselves as the wrathful Hand of God, destroying those who have offended him. Any who are considered evil or unfaithful to God must be destroyed. They tend to hunt Cainites whom they see as corrupt.

Road of Humanity

Kindred trying to hold onto their humanity. By far the most common road among unlanded Vampires.

Faith Description
Amaranthans
Viaentelechia2.png
A small group of Cainites dedicated to hunting down diablerists. They use the name of the first victim of diablerie as a commitment to their task.
Eternal Senate
Eternalsenate.png
The Eternal Senate is a council of Cainites modeled after the Roman Senate (albeit much smaller), to govern, legislate and rule over the Kindred. The Ventrue of Rome organized themselves as the mortals did, as a republic: the Eternal Senate of the Ventrue. In the senate, every Ventrue has the right of speech and voting power is irrespective of age or sex.
Inconnu
Inconnu.png
The Inconnu is an extremely secretive sect of vampires. Virtually nothing is known for certain about them, but some of the most popular theories claim the group is a coalition of methuselahs that exists to manipulate both the Camarilla and Sabbat from behind the scenes, made up entirely of ancients who have forsaken the Jyhad in order to pursue Golconda, or a powerful cult tied to the Antediluvians. Even the sect's age is disputed, with some believing it dates as far back as Rome.
Via Anima
Viaanima.png
Via Anima is commonly called the Path of Breath. The Inspired try to find meaning and purpose among mortal men, sharing their burdens and daily lives. By doing so, they hope to cease being monsters in their own mind, and so stall off the Beast. Many who walk this path do so purely by instinct, never giving the matter much thought.
Via Communitas
Viacommunitas.png
Commonly called the Path of Community. The Civilised are more focused on the community as a whole, rather than individuals. They seldom strive to exalt themselves, and when they do it is usually as a means to benefit the community at large.
Via Entelechia
Viaentelechia2.png
The Dedicated are defined by the three bases of Entelechy: Andreia, manliness; enkratia, inner strength; and sophrosyne, inner control. Human restraints like mercy or sympathy (or consideration) are beneath them. When a Dedicated meet a group of his clanmates, he assumes leadership over them, pointing to the obvious inferiority of his opposites and not shying away from killing vampires who would disobey their orders.
Via Humanitatis
Viahumanitatis.png
Followers of Via Humanitatis use the human condition to fight their Beast, remembering that they were ordinary mortals before being bestowed with Caine's curse. They place an emphasis on human virtues, such as freedom, the human heart and soul, and on reason and intelligence as a separator of man from beast.
Via Luminis
Vialuminis.png
Commonly called the Path of Illumination. Those who follow the Path of Illumination seek the Bitter Road to Golconda to leave the material world behind. The followers of the Via Luminis are a solitary lot, not necessarily by choice, but because society shuns them. The revilement of the Salubri (and Golconda in general) has also served on making the Path seem suspicious to pious vampires.
Via Vireo
Viahumanitatis.png
Commonly called the Path of Vigor. Those who follow the Path of Vigor are not only dedicated to an ideal of what humanity is, but also its nature. Rovers are drawn to the human tendency to innovate, expand its horizons, and move on for good or ill. The Path of Vigor is a forceful and energetic path that emphasizes motion and action before contemplation and stillness.

Road of Kings

Kindred who hold to noblesse oblige. A favorite of Clan Ventrue.

Faith Description
Cleopatrans of Yima
File:Hellenic.png
This cult is a merging between the tale of Yima, this mythical Nosferatu apparently not affected by his Clan curse, and Cleopatra, the beautiful Egyptian pharaoh. This fascination made the Clan powerful, and many Princes were Cleopatrans until the Roman Empire's fall. The cult is as good as dead since then.
Codex of Legacies
File:Hellenic.png
The Cainites of Constantinople didn't adhere to the six Traditions of Caine. Instead, the Brujah Tribonius created the Codex of Legacies, a collection of precepts that was meant to cement the rule of the Trinity and the three ruling clans: the Toreador, Tzimisce and Ventrue. A council of three Quaesitors — one from each of those three clans — supervised the codex and judged those who broke its tenets.
Path of Carnal Desire
Path of carnal desire.png
This non canon religion has been commissioned by a Patron.

Also known as Via Carnalium Desideriorum, this path is not about giving into pleasure--it is about the use of lust as a tool for control. While it is as erotic as Via Voluptarius, it is less about instinct and more about domination through sexual desire. It is the Sirens singing on the rocks, not the doomed sailors who seek them. Unlike the followers of the Road of Sin, the Desired conform to the norms of the Road of Kings and its traditions and so they find succor in the courts of the High Clans.

The Desired are known to have a religious rivalry with the Voluptuaries that plays out in bedrooms ahd brothels across Italy.

Shattered Spear
File:Hellenic.png
Those who bear the legacy of Artemis Orthia, first and most beloved of Ventrue’s childer and Goddess of ancient Sparta, who led the vanguard against the Brujah of Carthage and fell battling the darkness that seized that city in its vile grip.

The Spear operates in secret, each warrior standing firm against the tide of Gehenna and the diabolical forces that lurk outside of civilized Cainite society.

Via Consuasor
Viaregalis2.png
The Scions on this Path of the Vizier are content to advise rather than directly rule, but that does not make them any less adept at wielding power than the others on the Road of Kings. In fact, these Scions are among the best at subtle manipulations and noticing details that might threaten the influence of those in charge.
Via Equitum
Viaequitum.png
Those who follow the Path of Chivalry believe that as superior beings, they are beholden to defend those lesser than them, both Cainite and human. These Scions believe most strongly in the concepts of duty and honor.
Via Mercator
Viamercator.png
To these Scions who follow the Path of the Merchant, power and money go hand-in-hand; therefore, they spend much of their time acquiring wealth and using to subtly affect things behind the scenes. However, they also treasure their own reputations, and will go to great lengths to make sure it is a positive one.
Via Mithras
Mithras.png
The Mithraists straddle the line between Via Regalis and an actual cult. Although power and honor are still held in high regard, devotion to an actual god, Mithras, is paramount. They still hold true to an organization dating to the glory days of the cult, in Ancient Rome.
Via Officii
Viatyrannus.png
This non canon religion has been commissioned by a Patron.

Also known as the Road of Duty, this path was developed by Senen Forsworn--the White Watcher--to strictly enforce the Silence of Blood. They take extereme actions to maintain the integrity of the Masquerade.

Via Regalis
Viaregalis.png
Followers of Via Regalis control their Beast by ruling over others. Mortals are inferior, promises will be fulfilled, power is everything.
Via Tyrannus
Viatyrannus.png
Although many have a reputation as fierce, controlling, and power-hungry, the Scions of Path of the Tyrant are also among the more honor-bound of Via Regalis. If one of them has an obligation to you it will be kept, regardless of the cost. They are the most prone to ruling through fear rather than appeal, however.

Laibon

Laibon is mostly a catch term used to determine a disdain for the Caine's myth shared by most African Vampires.

Faith Description
Laibon
Laibon.png
Laibon are not a separate supernatural race, but the Laibon are in many ways quite different from 'regular' kindred. They ascribe their origins to African gods and legends, unlike the Kindred's Noddist version.

Road of Lilith

Kindred focused on the lessons of the Dark Mother. They are very antagonistic towards anything related to Caine.

Faith Description
Daughters of Gorgo
Watchfulgods.png
A small but militant organization seeking to murder any vampire tyrant. They operate as assassins, training wronged neonates into hardened killers ready to take revenge on their oppressors.
Derech Lilit
Derechlilit.png
The Road of Lilith is dedicated to the rabbinical figure Lilith, who appears in multiple Noddist sources as well as in traditions carried on by hidden cults. Most cults break Lilith down to fundamental principles: To pain and creation. To create, one must hurt and be hurt. This is the fundamental principle of life itself.
Via Calantica
Derechlilit.png
The Path of Veils is focused on Lilith as a rebel and counter-figure to both the Abrahamic God and Caine. They are the most virulent of the Lilin, often more warriors than scholars.
Via Faciendi
Pathofmaking.png
The Path of Making is dedicated to finding and propagating Lilith's demon-children, drawing from the Biblical tradition of Lilith as the Mother of Monsters.
Via Spinae
Derechlilit.png
The Path of Thorns is focused on physical pain. Members study pain logically, seeking to codify breaking points and ways to break a victim's threshold to make her see Lilith's painful truth.

Road of Metamorphosis

These Kindred seek knowledge through mastery of the flesh. Almost exclusively followed by Clan Tzimisce, their experiments are the premise of many nightmares.

Faith Description
Path of Asakku
Path of asakku.png
This version of the path is non-canon and has been commissioned by a Patron

A wandering mystic, Dragastes used his Vicissitude to heal the sick and wounded of both Kine and Kindred alike. However, With every healing, his tainted blood spread to the masses, rotting them from the inside out and corrupting them into mere extensions of the Asakku’s will. Potentially Dragastes’ curse may have spread across much of the Mediterranean. However, the Asakku, or more correctly the Watcher’s who dominated his will, had underestimated the other Kindred of the City. The Dracon, an ancient Tzimisce whose knowledge of Vicissitude eclipsed even that of the Asakku, rooted out many of cults and swiftly drove the rogue Tzimisce to flee the city. However, some remnants of Dragastes’ madness remained in the fringes of ancient Byzantium, though centuries of preparation and plotting had been undone in a brief few years. The cult has since migrated to the wastes of Siberia led by their Hierophant Matthaios Yelbeghen.

Path of the Flesh
Viamutationis.png
The true goal of the road is entirely physical. Bodily transformation leading to the acquisition of vast power in the material world. The spiritual is only considered important when it aids this physical transformation.
Path of the Spirit
Viamutationis.png
The true goal of the road is an entirely spiritual transformation. They see the physical world as an illusion and a distraction, at best a simple tool for spiritual growth.
Via Apotheosis
Viaapotheosis.png
This non canon religion has been commissioned by a Patron

Adherents strive to transcend their biological limitations, improving upon mental and physical abilities until they’re indistinguishable from divinity. Competitive rituals involve groveling to and learning from superiors in exchange for blood sacrifice. Vicissitude is the most common Discipline employed in the (un)life-long quest for perfection, though practitioners are encouraged to use most every available power to achieve their idealistic and egotistic goals (even demonic pacts and diablerie).

Via Mutationis
Viamutationis.png
The followers of the Road of Metamorphosis use knowledge not for others, but for themselves. Those who become Seekers live lonely, introverted lives as they discover their own capabilities. They rely on riddles and fragments of information, and usually give similar answers in return.

Road of Set

Dedicated to the worship of their Antediluvian, those who follow the Road of Set seek to restore Him. Those who are not part of the faith are viewed with suspicion and distrust.

Faith Description
Road of Set
Viaset.png
The main branch of the Clan of Set is a cult-like organization, worshiping their Antediluvian (or literal god) as the liberator of all mankind.
Road of Apep
Viaapep.png
These figures see their undead state as a blessed gift from the chaos-serpent, not as a curse. As a result, they revel in chaos and self-gratification. They see Apep the Serpent of Chaos as an avatar of Set.
Path of Subversion
Viaset.png
Only through the corruption of large-scale institutions can people be freed. Corrupters make for excellent agents in organized religions and states.

Road of Sin

Kindred who control their Beast by indulging in sins. The most common practitioner is a careless hedonist, but its sects may lead to a more severe mindset.

Faith Description
Via Peccati
Viapeccati.png
Followers of Via Peccati control their Beast by indulging their whims and desires, regardless of who they hurt. Failure to do as they please makes their condition worse, which means morals, ethics, and laws usually fall by the wayside as they make their way along this Road. Followers of Via Peccati are not evil per se; just completely self-indulgent.
Via Voluptarius
Viavoluptarius.png
The Sinners of the Path of Pleasure are the most hedonistic of those that follow the Road of Sin. To them, pleasure is everything insofar as their existence is concerned, and absolutely nothing is taboo.
Via Crudelitas
Viacrudelitas.png
The followers of the Path of Cruelty are the most cynical and hateful of the Sinners. Very much stemming from a 'hurt them before they hurt you' philosophy, the Sinners here do not believe in mercy, compassion, or pity. Rather, their only pleasure is derived from the pain of others.
Via Diabolis
Viaadversarius.png
Being an inherently destructive Road, Via Diabolis is not considered a path to be taken lightly; those who dare follow it indulge themselves with all manner of debauchery and destruction. Many are not really evil per se, so much as believing a virtuous unlife is a fruitless pursuit. Some, however, took the role of devil seriously, even calling themselves devils incarnate and servants of Satan. The Baali in particular are associated with Via Diabolis.
Via Adversarius
Viaadversarius.png
The 'Path of the Devil' is not to be confused with the so-called Via Diabolis, these Sinners work to keep themselves from being manipulated. The ultimate control freaks, they will go to extreme lengths to protect their free will and, unusually, the free will of others. Many consider them the most 'pleasant' of the Sinners.
Via Prometheus
Viaprometheus.png
Also called Firebringers, they are a sect of Cainites who dream of re-creating Carthage and the harmony of Kindred and Kine associated with it. Unsurprisingly, many members are Brujah. Since many members of the High Clans regard these visions as treason, the Prometheans are forced to act covertly.
Via Furores
Anarchrevolt.png
This sect's members have a reputation for being the outlaws of the Cainites. Condemned by most princes as thieves and troublemakers, they exist on the fringes of vampire society, scratching out a meager existence like their mortal counterparts. The Furores are considered chaotic, but they can muster a level of passion for their cause unseen anywhere else in Cainite society.
Via Quiritare
Nephandi.png
The maddest of the Sinners and the opposites of Via Adversarius, the followers of the Path of Screams believe that as they are already damned, they are also already prey to the Beast, and therefore allow themselves to be manipulated by it to do the Beast's bidding. They are essentially walking examples of Hell-on-Earth; even other Sinners are loathe to associate with these madmen.
Via Hyron
Viahyron2.png
The Road of the Hive is followed almost exclusively by the Baali of the Order of Moloch. The Road preaches all-encompassing loyalty to the bloodline as a whole and to one's Sire in particular. The main reason for this is that the Great Works that the Baali want to achieve cannot be claimed alone or when they interfere with the work of others. The vampire had to let the voices of the Swarm inside his soul in order to understand the dreams of the beings of the Outer Darkness and keep them asleep. Apart from that, most other vampires would actively destroy a Baali if he would be foolish enough to reveal himself as an adherent.
Tariq el-Shaitan
Viapeccati.png
The Path of the Devil in the Islamic world. Hunted almost to extinction by warriors of the Salubri and Assamite clans, these monsters have since learned to play the long game.
Via Deorum Vigilans
Watchfulgods.png
The Path of Watchful Gods reveres the pagan pantheon of the ancient greeks and romans, although pantheons of different pagan tradition also orientate themselves on the Path. Vampires on this path devote themselves to serving the gods through making regular sacrifices, honoring and protecting that which the gods deem sacred, and adhering to strict codes of honor.
The Eightfold Wheel
Eightfoldwheel.png
The Path of the Eightfold Wheel draws on Celtic paganism, with a special focus on druidism. They put great import on honoring the gods and spirits of nature, serving balance in all things, and a rotating calendar of astronomically based festivals.
Via Tártaros
Viapeccati.png
This non canon religion has been commissioned by a Patron

Beware, here be daemons. The Keys to our prisons of flesh and bone, may not be found through study and experiment alone; instead we must seek, nay take, that knowledge possessed by those who stand beyond the threshold of the world. Internalists some may call us, if they knew our true intent, to ascend beyond the prison into which we have been twice-born. This road is dark, and fraught with peril, and the only light which we may find is a terrible piercing radiance, which threatens to burn our flesh and exsanguinate our very spirit.

Deimosianism
Nephandi.png
Vampires are the incarnation of Mankind's primal fears. As such, they must reveal in their condition. Perhaps humanity will be strong enough to conquer its fears one day. Until then, Deimosians run free.

Road of Zarathustra

Kindred following a morality based on Zoroastrianism. Although the religion is mostly gone from mortal's minds, Vampires live much longer and don't forget as easily.

Faith Description
Road of Angra Mainyu
Ahriman-angramanyu.png
Zoroastrians believe that they — beholden to the Angra Mainyu, Hunger, and eternal night — are cursed by Angra Mainyu. They must explore this state of being and, once they fully understand evil, choose to be good and return to Ahura Mazda’s grace. Of course, not all make it there.
Road of Ahura Mazda
Yazata.png
The path to redemption is through Ahura Mazda. Having passed through the evil of Angra Mainyu, they choose to be good and return to the grace of Ahura Mazda. The initiate of the Road of Ahura Mazda cleanses herself extensively with water.
Path of Daena
File:Zoroastrian custom 2.png
The Path of Daena teaches that virtuous acts and adhering to law and duty brings great personal power. By acting in accordance with these laws and their duty, they will be rewarded justly. Laws provide structure for a civil society; break the law, and society itself breaks down.
Cult of Zilah
Talmahera.png
A group of Cainites centered around the Weeping Master and his disciple Anosh. After the finding of a weeping stone in a lost valley, the cult became worshipers of the second generation vampire named Zilah. They now stand as enemies of the third generation, who rebelled against Caine and Caine's childer commands.

Sabbat

The Sabbat is a loose organization of Cainites who reject the Traditions. Unlike the Camarilla, the Sabbat believes in the Antediluvians and Caine. Also known as the Sword of Caine, as they believe they will be the army he will use to destroy the Antediluvians once Gehenna arrives.

Faith Description
Path of Honorable Accord
Sabbat.png
The Path of Honorable Accord is a Path of Enlightenment that harnesses the Beast through the rigorous practice of honorable and chivalrous behavior.
Cainites on the Path of Honorable Accord place a high value on ritual and ceremony. The Sabbat's Knights therefore always participate in War Parties, ritae, ceremonies, and other pack events. As a whole, the followers of the Path seek to knit together the disparate factions of the sect under the common banner of loyalty to a cause.
Path of Power and the Inner Voice
PathofpowerandtheinnervoiceV5.png
The Path of Power and the Inner Voice is a Path of Enlightenment that controls the Beast through rigorous determination and the amassing of worldly power.

Followers of this Path believe the truth lies within themselves and is best found by an inner search for personal enlightenment that leads ultimately to the amassing of power. Control of the self and of the external world is the only goal worth pursuing. To this end, a vampire must develop his abilities, extend his influence, and lay his pawns.

Path of Cathari
Pathofcathari.png
The Path of Cathari fashions itself as the direct counterpart of the medieval Cathars: vampires are archontic spirits, jailers of the Demiurge, placed on this world to ensure mankind will never transcend it. Caine was damned by the good creator to physicality and suffering unending, but placed above mankind in the process, to evaluate humans and tempt them away from gnosis. To this end, Albigensians (the formal titulation of a follower of the path) encourage mortal excess and materialism and deliberately break the many taboos of the ancient Cathars.
Path of the Beast
Pathofthebeast2.png
The Path of the Beast is a Path of Enlightenment seeking to control the Beast by accepting its urges as natural and accepting their role as a hunter among hunters.

Unorganized and shunning the trappings of civilization, followers of the Path often eschew technology in favor of their talents inherent to their undead form.

Path of Harmony
Pathoforion.png
A variant of the Path of the Beast in that it accepts the Beast as necessary for the vampire's survival.

The Harmonists do not believe that anything that exists is unnatural. Simply being means that an individual or force has a place. This includes vampires. Yes, the vampire's role in the natural order is somewhat unpleasant, but then the rabbit would likely feel the same way about the fox.

Path of Caine
PathofcaineV5.png
The Path of Caine is a Path of Enlightenment that emulates the Dark Father in order to ward off the Beast.

The heart of the Path of Caine lies in the exemplification of vampiric nature: The questions of existence, the limits of the vampiric form, and the changes wrought by the Embrace all drive the Noddists into endless speculation, debate, study, and research. Scholarship and historical insight are valuable, but the vampire must simultaneously develop spiritually and physically, to explore the limits of his undead form.

Path of Night
Pathofnightsabbat.png
The Path of Night, sometimes called the Path of the Allied Night, is a Path of Enlightenment that preaches acceptance of Caine's curse and of the Beast. Cainites must harness their powers to serve the ordained purpose of vampirism – wreaking havoc upon the mortals and inspire dread – and thereby find salvation.
Path of Metamorphosis
Pathofmetamorphosis.png
The Path of Metamorphosis is a Path of Enlightenment that controls the Beast by studying its limits and the limits of vampirism in general.

They believe that the next step is a state akin to apotheosis, which they call Azhi Dahaka, after the dragon of Persian mythology, and they will do anything – anything – to achieve it. It is a distant, lonely philosophy, removed from any needs other than the matter of sustenance.

Path of Death & the Soul
PathofdeathandthesoulV5.png
The Path of Death and the Soul is a Path of Enlightenment that suppresses the Beast by detached study of death, undeath and the soul.

As one of the more scholarly paths, Necronomists see the vampiric existence as a means to explore the mysteries of life and death. They divide the universe into the rational realm of flesh and physics and the irrational realm of pain, mysteries, and supernatural phenomena. To explore these differences and to find the answer to their questions, a vampire has to explore his own state and the nature of the soul.

Path of Redemption
Viadolorosa.png
The Path of Redemption is a Path of Enlightenment that fights the Beast by striving for salvation in the service of God. Naturally, these claims are somewhat inconvenient in the current societies of the Damned, but the followers of the path are often more determined to gain grace than caring about others.
Vasantasenadharma
Vasantasenadharma.png
Vasantasena and her Malkavian sire Unmada traveled the world throughout the Middle Ages, preaching against the Blood Bond. They rejected the vinculum, traditional Kindred hierarchy, and all loss of free will. Ultimately, they condemned the Antediluvians for their cruel tyranny through Jyhad, joining the Sabbat during its formation.

Tal'Mahe'Ra

Also known as the True Black Hand or Manus Nigrum, it is an ancient death-cult devoted to the worship of a cabal of beings known as the Aralu, whom the cult believe to be Antediluvians, that sleep in the ghost-city of Enoch deep within the lands of the dead.

Faith Description
Tal'Mahe'Ra
Talmahera.png
The Tal'Mahe'Ra is an ancient organization formed by an unlikely alliance between Chakravanti mages and several vampire clans (notably Assamites), though its members also include other supernatural creatures besides vampires and mages.
Manus Nigrum
Manusnigrum.png
The western branch of an ancient death-cult devoted to the worship of a cabal of beings known as the Aralu, whom they believed to be Antediluvians, that slept in the ghost-city of Enoch deep within the lands of the dead. The cult primarily involved itself in vampire politics planning the obliteration of the Baali.
Path of Self-Focus
Selffocus.png
The Internalists believe that by accepting the course of the universe and following along without interfering, they could cease internal conflict and so shut down the Beast. Because changing the world is impossible, you can only change yourself to suit the world, they claim.
Path of the Scorched Heart
Scorchedheart.png
Based on the Book of the Empty Heart by Rathmonicus which was first disseminated among a few Kindred in the Catholic Church; its scriptures were later reunited and compiled by the True Black Hand. The Path of the Scorched Heart controls the Beast by systematically eradicating every emotion within the vampire's heart.
Servitors of Irad
Nephandi.png
Self proclaimed minions of the Antediluvians, the Servitors of Irad seek nothing more than endless war and bloodshed. The planet will be drenched in blood, and they will be at the forefront all the while.

List of Wan Xian Dharmic Paths

A Dharma is a path to enlightenment which allows Wan Xian to transcend their bestial natures and hold out hope for enlightenment and rejoining the Karmic cycle. As demonic creatures, enlightenment is far harder for Kuei-Jin, and the path to wisdom can take millennia. There are five orthodox dharmas, four heretical dharmas, and two dharmas that stand apart, one being in opposition the the five orthodox and one despised by all.

Orthodox Dharmas

Devil-Tiger

The Devil-Tigers believe that they are replacements for the incompetent demons of ages past; they punish sinners and seek enlightenment through pain and violence.

Faith Description

August Body of the Sagacious Devils Deviltiger.png

By using an extremely competitive system of ranks, the August Body channels the wrathful energy of the P’o into productive work for the greater good of the Kuei-jin.

Thousand Embers Deviltiger.png

The members of society support each other even across wu-boundaries and typically study the dharmic texts together. The purpose of each society in the long run, however, is to act as a distraction to the Demon Emperor, As a guerrilla cell that will set mortal society ablaze to stop the Yama Kings from prospering.

Song of the Shadow

The Song of the Shadow, also known as Bone Flowers, are coldly logical necromancers who seek dispassionate reasoning and enforcement of dharmic balance. They are also tightly tied to mortal society through their descendants and often assist their families even centuries afterward.

Faith Description

The Passion Bloodflowers Thrashingdragon.png

Bloodflowers take an even more extreme stance on enjoying life than the Laughing Rainbows, sometimes bordering on animalistic. They have a strong alliance with a similar sect of the Devil Tigers.

Laughing Rainbows Thrashingdragon.png

One of the oldest sects of the Dharma. It is centred on the direct experience of life. Members of the sect seek to learn to love what one truly is, not simply certain things about oneself. This leads to a very unapologetic approach to life that can be taxing on others.

The Thousand-Faced Thunders Thrashingdragon.png

A sect dedicated to the Yang World , particularly the new urban spirits that inhabit the great cities.

The Ten Seasons Sect Thrashingdragon.png

A sect dedicated to the veneration of the natural cycles and careful cultivation of oneself.

The Path of a Thousand Whispers

The Path of a Thousand Whispers, live a sequence of masks, new identities they construct after death in order to understand mortal life and hopefully transcend it.

Faith Description

Face of the Gods Faceofthegods.png

The Face of the Gods are possibly the most extreme heresy, claiming that the Kuei-Jin are infact exiled Gods. They set up their own cults with worshippers and extract chi from prayer.

Rising Pheonix Flameoftherisingphoenix.png

The Flame of the Rising Phoenix dharma holds that the purpose of the Second Breath is to make restitution for the crimes of one's life. The dharma is noted for its members failing (or occasionally disappearing) after a short period of time.

Inward Way Inwardway.png

The Seekers of the Inward Way are an alternative balanced dharma, the Tempests pursue a Taoist path in comparison to the Confucian courts.

Ten Thousand Screams Wayofthetenthousandscreams.png

A dharma that stood in opposition to the Fivefold Way and was thought eradicated. Its followers preach union with the Yama Kings and see their new state as a way to serve the August Personage as destroyers.

Faith Description
Independent Hunters
Independenthunters.png
Independent of any governing eclesiatical body, these hunters follow their own idiosyncratic wars against the supernatural horrorsof the World of Darkness. While they lack the resources of a large institution, they also are not bound by any cumbersome ethnics or bureacruatic rules. Most of these hunters discovered the threat of supernatural creatures on their own, though a few chafing under the rules of the Shadow Inquisition, quit responding to orders form on high and now walk their own path.
Shadow Inquisition
Shadowinquisition.png
The Shadow Inquisition is a secret campaign orchestrated by the Catholic Church during the Dark Medieval period. Unlike the Papal Inquisition, which is targeted at heretics, the Shadow Inquisition targets vampires, werewolves, mages and other "servants of Satan" for either destruction or salvation. Its existence will be short lived, but its successes will change the Cainite world forever.
