Parent Road: Via Peccati
Virtues: Conviction, Instinct

The Path of the Eightfold Wheel is a Path of the Road of Sin (Via Peccati) found in V20 Dark Ages.


The Path of the Eightfold Wheel draws on Celtic paganism, with a special focus on druidism. Its focus on honoring the gods and spirits of nature through devotion to nature and the spirits, serving balance in all things, and a rotating calendar of astronomically based festivals. Since the rise of Christianity, this Path became more and more rare, receding to rural areas in Britain or being adopted by germanic traditions that practice shamanism.
