A pronouncement is made, it is placed on vellum that looks aged and the ink on it is thick and well made. The script is elegant and strong. This notice is posted in the Kindred Haven and a copy is left in the message boxes of each vampire within the Speakeasy.
To the Kindred of New Orleans,
It has been brought to my attention on several occasions that the behavior of the kindred has been unbecoming and at times extremely questionable within the Speakeasy
In some cases this behavior has called into question the ability for each of you to adhere to the traditions. Specifically I speak to you of the traditions of the First, the Second, and the Fifth.
Understand that if your behavior causes embarrassment to the Kindred of New Orleans you will be punished.
Violation of the first tradition will be met with final death, there will be no exceptions to this.
Violation of the second tradition will be met with a loss of standing and the payment of a boon commensurate with the offense in question.
Violation of the Fifth Tradition will be met with a loss of standing for your first offense, a second offense will cause you to be stripped of all standing save for your acknowledgement and you will be known as **Untrustworthy** to your peers and elders.
Independents who are recognized within the domain of New Orleans, should you violate the traditions which are older than sect and political leanings, you will be stripped of your recognition and banished. Should you feel that this banishment is not enough to dissuade you from insulting my domain further, your blood will be forfeit.
Let it also be known that if a domitors vassals, known in the vulgar argot as ghouls, are in violation of the traditions, the same punishment applies to the domitor.
In all cases the Domitor's vassals will be destroyed and the Domitor's ability to foster further vassals will be stripped until it has been proven that the Domitor understands what proper behavior is and can instruct appropriately.
By my hand let it be known and understood on this eighth day of the twelfth month in the year two thousand and sixteen
