Sabbat

Post by Jamie Steel on Mon Jul 11, 2011 7:41 pm

I feel it would be more suitable to swap Lasombra with the Sabbat, for the following reasons:

-Lasombra are part of Sabbat
-This will enable members of the faction to be from more than one bloodline, expanding RP
-The Camarilla will have a more distinctive threat to encounter.

Ranks:

Archbishop: Similar to that of a Camarilla Prince, the Arch-Bishop's job is to rule over, most likely, a Sabbat held city of some importance. An Arch-Bishop may also extend his "diocese" into smaller surrounding regions. Normally keeping a Bishop or two around as advisors, or helping hands in keeping track of surrounding territories in and outside of Sabbat control.

Means of address: "Your Excellency"

Bishop: An advisory staff member with some political standing. Becoming a Bishop is not easy, it is, however, almost always the stepping stone for getting any higher in Sabbat politics (excluding a few monomacies here and there.) Bishops are known to work with Arch-Bishops in an area, and can sometimes earn the honor of keeping track of important resources, varying from territory to important tasks necessary for the improvment of the Sword of Caine (and one's own standing, of course.)

Means of address: "Your Excellency"

Paladin/Templar: Paladin referring more to a bodygaurd and Templar referring more to an assassin of the Sabbat. These positions are held by members who work directly for important standing Cainites. They may hold little political power on their own right, but a good servant always has the ability to ask his Lord for a favor. An extremely experienced or well trained Paladin/Templar may work for a Cardinal, while a new recruit may simply serve alongside a Bishop. Paladins and Templars are always tested for their loyalty, and it is almost assured that if you have one under your rulership, you have them til Final Death (yours or theirs.)

Means of address: "Sir ----/Lady ----" (as with a knighthood) (ex: "Sir Talley", a Lasombra templar)

Ductus: Basic minion to all above them, and drill sergeant to all beneath. A Ductus' (pl. Ducti) job is to lead a Sabbat Pack. Sometimes the job of Priest and Ductus fall on the same person, and sometimes the Preist may actually lead and the Ductus just has the title in word alone. These instances are not near as common as simply having the Ductus lead their Pack.

Means of address: "Ductus"

Priest: A Pack's spiritualist. Versed at least somewhat in Sabbat Lore and Ritae. A Priest's job is to learn the Auctoritas Ritae and administer them to the Pack when necessary. Most importantly this means leading in the Vaulderie, the blood tie that keeps a Pack together through forced loyalty. They also create and lead the pack's individual ignoblis ritae.

Means of address: "Reverend [Sir/Madam]"

Brothers and Sisters: Rabble. Children. Meat shields. Grunts. Or simply Brothers and Sisters in Caine. These are the Sabbat with no actual status. They are members of a Pack. They have yet to earn anything, and more than likely in these Final Nights they shall meet Final Death before ever having the chance. Survival rates are grim, at best, among a Sect like the Sabbat. However, there are always paths to power. Whether it be diablerie, or a lucky Monomacy, it's possible to move up in rank with a Sect with such high turnover. Just remember no matter how ruthless these Brothers and Sisters may seem, the only reason higher ups don't seem so out right evil is because they have simply learned to hide it better.

Means of address: None ("Brother/Sister", "Grunt"; as a group "Coven" or "Pack")

Shovelheads: There is one catgeory of Sabbat vampires below even the Brothers and Sisters: the shovelheads. These are the vampires who have been mass-Embraced during a time of war and have not yet suffered the trials that will make them True Sabbat. So named for the practice of Embracing a group of mortals, knocking them unconscious by means of a shovel to the head, and then burying them in shallow graves. Those who fight their way to the surface, blood-mad and near Frenzy, are used as footsoldiers in a Sabbat campaign.

Means of address: None ("Shovelhead", "Grunt", "Meatshield", "Bitch")




I understand this is up to the faction leaders to take into consideration, but this will be more beneficial for the faction, as this allows them to do the same, yet more.

If Inquisition was turned into Cammies... why shouldn't Lasombra be Sabbat?

But anyway...

That would be up to Nero.

Is he actually leading it...?

At any rate this clearly gives it something more than "Lol steal shit n piss off other vampires"

Obviously support. If you can't figure out why you're a shovelhead.

Interesting idea.
Well, to be honest, I like it, atleast we won't be limited to only one bloodline.

From now on, it is no longer the Lasombra Clan. The Sabbat takes place.
Thanks for the rank names and info.
