Road Of Sin

The common folk of the Dark Medieval world know full well that vampires are
creatures of the Devil, and many Cainites agree. If they are damned, then why
should they not indulge in the dark desires welling up within them? Rather than
falling on their knees and begging forgiveness, they exult in their newfound
power and use it to satisfy their every wicked impulse. Other Cainites look at
these Sinners and see those who have given in to the temptations of the Beast,
but they are not mere slaves to their own desires. They master the Beast by
indulging and feeding it, existing in cooperation with it. Despite some
accusations to the contrary, few Sinners are agents of Hell.

Their interests are as diverse as the depths of sin itself. Some indulge the
senses with art, perfumes, music and similar pleasures (although not food and
drink, which are denied them). They serve as patrons or muses, or they become
obsessive collectors. Others practice the art of seduction, gathering harems of
beautiful mortals. They play the heart like a finely tuned lute. Some corrupt
others and lead them into lives of indulgence and excess for their own
amusement and vicarious enjoyment. They explore the limits of pain and
degredation mortals (and even other Cainites) can suffer. because they are
already damned, nothing is forbidden to them.

In fact, the only thing that is truly forbidden to the followers of the Road
of Sin is failing to satisfy their endless need for indulgence. Through it,
they feed the Beast and keep it sated. Denial awakens the hunger within them,
and forces the Beast to take matters into its own bloody hands. Sinners know the
Beast better than most, and they have no desire to become its slaves. Sinners
know that total denial of the Beast only strengthens it in the long run,
leading to an ultimate destruction of the self. And Sinners value the self above
all else.
