The Code of Milan

The Code of Milan is the list of principles by which the Sabbat define themselves.

  1. The Sabbat shall remain united in its support of the sect’s Regent. If necessary, a new Regent shall be elected. The Regent shall support relief from tyranny, granting all Sabbat freedom.
  2. All Sabbat shall do their best to serve their leaders as long as said leaders serve the will of the Regent.
  3. All Sabbat shall faithfully observe all the Auctoritas Ritae.
  4. All Sabbat shall keep their word of honour to one another.
  5. All Sabbat shall treat their peers fairly and equally, upholding the strength and unity of the Sabbat. If necessary, they shall provide for the needs of their brethren.
  6. All Sabbat must put the good of the sect before their own personal needs, despite all costs.
  7. Those who are not honourable under this code will be considered less than equal and therefore unworthy of assistance.
  8. As it has always been, so it shall always be. The Lextalionis shall be the model for immortal justice by which all Sabbat shall abide.
  9. All Sabbat shall protect one another from the enemies of the Sect. Personal enemies shall remain personal responsibility, unless they undermine Sect security.
