Road of Paradox

Roads are for Medieval vampires. Paths of Enlightenment do not exist yet and may not be selected.

The Road of Paradox teaches that all existence is fluid and malleable. Nothing is permanent or real, but is composed of variable amounts of ethereal matter.

The Ravnos refer to this matter as "weig". In its natural state, weig flows willy-nilly from being to being, object to object, creating and destroying without care. A given object can be filled with weig one moment and nearly empty the next; such is change, such is existence.

According to the Ravnos, the Antediluvians are beings who were momentarily filled with great amounts of weig and never released it. They strove to sculpt reality into a fixed shape that would enable them to retain their new power. To aid thier cause, they passed on small amounts of their weig, molding them into their own images. Thus were other vampires created.

Ultimately, the weig must be released into the vortex. Ravnos who are far along this Road actively seek to do so. They seek out items that retain weig - "magic" items, Lupine fetishes and the like - and destroy them. The most powerful of this Via seek out vampires with great amounts of weig - of low generation - and do likewise.
