DC By Night
The Traditions are the fundamental laws of Kindred society, supposedly handed down by Caine himself.
Their basic breakdown is:
I. Masquerade: Hide the existence of vampires.
II. Domain: A kindred’s hunting ground is his own territory, and he rules it absolutely.
III. Progeny: Sire only with permission of one’s elders.
IV. Accounting: Until childer are released, their actions are the responsibility of their sire.
V. Hospitality: Honor the domains of others, and present oneself to the ruler of any domain you visit.
VI. Destruction: The right to kill Kindred is reserved for the Elder of a community. Only an elder may call a Blood Hunt.
The Traditions form the legal backbone of Camarilla society. In modern nights, the Prince fulfills the elder role outlined in the traditions.
