The Oath of Clasped Hands is the ultimate Oath of friendship.


Blood for blood, bone for bone, life for life, until only we stride the earth. My life is in your hands, my blood is in your veins. Hold me well and I will lend you my strength; break your bond and may we both perish. Friendship I swear to you; an oath of clasped hands and shared heart.



Oaths are never taken lightly and this one in particular is not. These words are only for those who feel a bond for a friend as one may feel for a lover. When making the oath, the two oathmakers' hands are clasped around a double edged blade. As their blood is mixed, their friendship is reaffirmed and strengthened. Think of the relationship between Arthur and Lancelot to understand this oath.


The makers of this oath gain a Willpower point when it is completed but lose 2 is it is ever broken.
