Crucible of Caine's Fire

Theme: Survival and Reunification
Mood: The mood of Crucible of Caine’s Fire will change at times, dependent of plot springboards, player background story incorporation or the desires of STs to bring about the flavour and emotion of a Sabbat chronicle. Generally, however the game’s mood will shift between its five-fold elements, including; Allegiance, Estrangement, Faith, Intrigue, and Reformation. Allegiance – “Loyalty or commitment of a subordinate to a superior or of an individual to a group or cause.” What defines loyalty to a Sabbat? Bloodlines? Covenants? Sacraments? Vinculum? Does one’s Path of Enlightenment or faction? Estrangement – “The sense of causing (someone) to turn away from a previously held state of affection, comradeship, or allegiance”. Will these latter night’s schisms, tumults and/or portents shatter the Sword of Caine? Perhaps one, knowing what it is to be alone in the night – separated, may galvanize it against the oncoming horror? Faith – “Strong belief in [God] or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.” Can the True Sabbat member ever have complete trust or confidence in someone or something? Is Orthodoxy the summit of one’s faith, the foundation of worst yet, the stagnation of it? Intrigue – “The making of secret plans of combinations to do something illicit or detrimental to someone.” The Eternal Struggle does not end until the coming of true Gehenna. Reformation - The action or process of reforming an institution or practice. The Sabbat stands on the brink. Civil war is whispered. What will the Sword of Caine look like when the ashes settle?
