    When a kindred lives for hundreds of years, political views can change drastically and kindred may decide to change covenants throughout the course of a requiem. Mechanically speaking, that can cause confusion because of the benefits that being a member of a covenant grant. (ie: cost breaks and devotions, access to rituals and coils.)

    Here are the rules, Should a player decide to switch covenants.

    Players will keep all covenant benefits that have already been purchased, but will lose access to purchasing them in the future. Anything learned through the covenant will not be...
