From the White Wolf catalog:

Cursed to the Night
Caine's Curse is a grand responsibility that we dare not shirk. We have been made into the highest order of being on this Earth and we must accept it. But rulership is not simply a matter of inheritance – it demands will to uphold this dark legacy. You are a vampire, but are you strong enough to be a Scion?
Destined to Rule It
In the second of the Road Books for Dark Ages: Vampire, players find all the secret ways and hidden rites of the Road of Kings, the vampiric faith that teaches the ways of honor and power. From dark tyrants and Machiavellian schemers to ashen knights and vampire-kings, the Scions come into their own in the War of Princes.
