: The Masquerade
Do not reveal your true nature to those not of the Blood. Doing so forfeits you your claim to the Blood.
The masquerade protects Vampires from the knowledge and interference of mortals. The masquerade is what keeps "rational" humans
from believing that Vampires are real.

A domain is usually comprised of a single city and a limited radius outside its borders. Within her domain, a Prince has absolute
authority. The custom of domain derives from the First Tradition largely because one of the first duties of a Prince is to ensure the
masquerade is upheld within her domain.

II: Progeny
Sire another at the peril of both yourself and your progeny. If you create a childe, the weight is your own to bear.
Any vampire can create more vampires. Doing so is to damn another soul for all eternity. It is not an act which should be indulged lightly.

When a vampire sires a childe, is it considered the duty of the sire to tutor the childe in the laws and customs of kindred society
and to ensure the childe does not violate the first tradition in the heady and difficult first nights of her requiem.

III: Amaranth
You are forbidden from devouring the heartsblood of another of your kind. If you violate this commandment, the Beast calls to your own
Blood. It is said that while the blood of mortals is sweet, the blood of kindred as far sweeter still. Though drinking the blood of other
vampires has its pleasures and perils, the Vinculum not the least of these, drinking the life blood, the heart's blood, of another vampire
causing their Final Death is an act fraught with danger and the promise of power as well.

While respect for one's elders is simple good manners even in mortal society, among kindred it takes on an even greater
significance. Especially when that elder may be hundreds if not thousands of years old.
