''<nowiki/>''[[File:LogoKithBoggans.png|thumb]]This deceptively simple oath is one of the best kept secrets of the boggan kith, for it allows them to use their Craftwork [[Birthright (CTD)|birthright]] in front of the [[Oath (CTD)|oathmate]] as though they were another boggan. On the surface, the extreme secrecy surrounding these vows seems bizarre to those rare outsiders who learn of it; after all, what’s the harm in getting a little extra help? However, the simple fact remains that boggans are far, far more likely to swear [[Oath of Clasped Hands|oaths of friendship]] or even [[Oath of Truehearts|true love]] before offering this vow to another.

The roots of this secrecy and reluctance go deep into boggan hearts. Simply put, the isolation required by their Craftwork birthright is not just a way of ensuring they can work as they please, but also allows them to create in a space free of the judgment of others who aren’t like them. That’s no small matter for this humble, often overlooked kith. After all, if all your life you’ve primarily worked and created alone, or with others very much like you, suddenly having an audience — even an audience of one — who is different is a tremendous change.
