If Freemasonry is fit to be on the secret society forums, I would wager that this is as well.There is an awful large amount of (legitimate)
information available about Freemasonry, and what most would consider the secretive aspect of it, rituals,modes of recognition,grips,etc are found
with relative ease on line.
These folks, on the other hand have very little openly known of them,I certainly don't see anything in depth about their rituals and magickal
teachings anywhere online,though my search is far from exhaustive.( I plan to try to dig more about them up when I get a little more free time.
V: The Covenant of Secrets
The Strigoi Vii is an open secret, hidden in plain sight.
Secrets both protect and bind Us. Our Mysteries are Our own and those who wish to explore them should seek them out alone, through personal initiative
and action. As a sleight of hand magician would employ the principle of “hidden in plain sight,” so does the Living Vampyre.
Here are three examples of the Black Veil Covenant of Secrets:
First, take example from the Synod. Honor your Sorors’ and Fraters’ right of privacy, such as in respect to Their mundane identity. Never
disclose any personal information to anyone, especially the mundane and even other Family members, without Their explicit permission. The only
circumstance under which the Synod would disclose the mundane name and identity of any Strigoi Vii is if such information was required under the legal
jurisdiction of the proper authorities.
Secondly, public discussion of Strigoi Vii and the Mysteries outside of the Sanctums, such as with the media, on social networking websites, in
public, or with those not of the Blood is an obvious violation of this Covenant. At all times speak only for yourself and never represent the Family
outside of the guidelines in the Quest without first consulting the Synod and gaining direct endorsement. Leave that to those select members of the
Inner Circle who are properly trained in public relations. Supporting this Covenant furthers the Glamour and Our Mysteries.
Finally, and most importantly, never share or discuss the Sanguinomicon with someone who has not read it and had the opportunity to reflect upon
its contents. Respect free will, and let Seekers gain the first impression of the Mysteries and formulate their opinion on their own.
And after that, you still deny that this is a secret society?They openly state that they have their own mysteries,and not to speak to the media,on
social networking sites (myspace,etc) or in public.
