White Wolf Wiki

Via Einherjar, commonly known as Road of the Slain or Path of the Slain, is a Road practiced among the Norse vampires and serves as a reminder of the ancient ethics that the All-Father gave them. The Road teaches responsibility, courage in the face of adversity, and individual initiative. Many drive off the Beast by acts of iron-willed discipline and courage, such as watching the sun rising.

Most of the followers of the Road are disrespectful, self-serving, and physically abusive to those they do not respect. Often, even the people they do respect are treated only slightly better.
