Traditions

The traditions are the foundation of Kindred Law and Custom. How these Traditions are interpreted varies somewhat by Domain and Ruler but they are generally recognised as the basis of Vampiric society.

Thumb

The First Tradition: The Masquerade
Thou shall not reveal thy true nature to those not of the Blood.
Doing such shall renounce thy claims of Blood.
The Second Tradition: The Domain
Thy domain is thine own concern.
All others owe thee respect while in it.
None may challenge thy word while in thy domain.
The Third Tradition: The Progeny
Thou shall only Sire another with the permission of thine Elder.
If thou createst another without thine Elder’s leave, both thou and thy Progeny shall be slain.
The Fourth Tradition: The Accounting
Those thou create are thine own children.
Until thy Progeny shall be Released, thou shall command them in all things.
Their sins are thine to endure.
The Fifth Tradition: Hospitality
Honor one another’s domain.
When thou comest to a foreign city, thou shall present thyself to the one who ruleth there.
Without the word of acceptance, thou art nothing.
The Sixth Tradition: Destruction
Thou art forbidden to destroy another of thy kind.
The right of destruction belongeth only to thine Elder.
Only the Eldest among thee shall call the Blood Hunt

Melbourne

Melbourne has an existing vampiric court. It has atypical positions compared to courts in other places (define them)

The Boundary

The first thing that these new arrivals learn when presenting themselves at Court is that the boundary of Melbourne is the extent of where they can safely tread. Explained to them by the Scourge William Buckley, this limitation is part of a treaty with those who live beyond. Vampires who do wrong have been known to be banished there for punishment.
There are no restrictions on sea travel in and out but travel into the rural lands and into the interior are restricted.
The city extends from Williamstown, Footscray and Essendon in the west to Heidelberg and Bulleen in the East. Coburg and Preston are the northern boundaries of the urban area and to the south, there is not much beyond Moorabbin.
