Sabbat Status

Stations and Statuses are important in the Sabbat world, though how the Sword of Caine are organized is different from the Camarilla.  The Sabbat was formed with the intention that they know what they are fighting for and so even though they can seem pretty chaotic at times, there are methods to the madness.  Though they do not have a ‘Masquerade’ they care about so much, the wiser among them avoid being too foolish with their activities and avoid drawing too much attention to themselves.  After all, some want to be around to help Caine fight off the traitorous Antideluvians and Methusulahs out there.  Quite a few younger packs challenge the Masquerade openly but many Bishops and Archbishops tend to try to keep at least a degree of control over the recklessness, or they just tactically use these youngsters along with their shock troop “Shovelheads” to get rid of them by the laws of nature.

The Archbishop of a region basically acts as “Prince” in many cases, seeing over a whole City and surrounding areas.  A Bishop will act as a Seneschal, keeping to a part of a City or watching the City while the Archbishop moves around her territory, visiting other Bishops she may have appointed.  Templars/Paladins are enforcers that tend to watch over Packs for the Bishop and Archbishop and also inform superiors of transgressions or issues that need addressed.  A Pack Ductus is the war-leader for a pack of Sabbat members and commands the pack.  The Pack Priest reminds the followers of Caine of what they are supposed to be doing in his service.  The Pack, including the Ductus and Priest, do Vaulderie, a blood bond ritual that ties multiple people together at different levels, to help with cooperation and strategies, and to help ease Pack fighting and competition among them.  Sometimes, Vaulderies are performed at higher levels even, to keep things running smoothly in an area.  At the bottom of the list of Sabbat are the ‘Shovelheads’, which are not counted among the Sabbat as true members until they are committed to a legitimate Pack and given the Vaulderie.

The Black Hand are members of the Sabbat that are specially trained as military commandos and espionage operatives, as well as assassins.  They are divided up after training usually to be inserted in various Packs, though when things are rough, some stay as Packs specifically composed only of their members.  Sabbat Packs composed of only Black Hand members are known as Kamuts, and usually these are temporary.  The Black Hand has its own special signals and ways to identify their members and they must be ready to fight when called upon at any time.  If the Sabbat are the army for Caine, the Black Hand are its Special Forces.

Sabbat members can have Statuses similar to how the Camarilla ones operate, which assist them in gaining popularity and power. Statuses that are particularly around what the person excels at and that bolsters up their reputations, they enjoy a lot.  Sabbat members can also acquire ‘Infamy’ titles from the Camarilla, which they wear with joy.  Sabbat members can also have positive Status or Infamous Status with Clans, whether in the Sabbat or elsewhere.  Clan Enmity is a thing.
