The Hierarchy of Sins displays the guidelines of a World of Darkness morality, whether Humanity, a Path of Enlightenment, or a philosophical Road.

Usage

There are two display options. To show the guidelines and related rationales, copy and paste the following code into the article, filling the appropriate fields:

{{Hierarchy of Sins
|morality = 
|guideline10 = 
|rationale10 = 
|guideline9 = 
|rationale9 = 
|guideline8 = 
|rationale8 = 
|guideline7 = 
|rationale7 = 
|guideline6 = 
|rationale6 = 
|guideline5 = 
|rationale5 = 
|guideline4 = 
|rationale4 = 
|guideline3 = 
|rationale3 = 
|guideline2 = 
|rationale2 =

}}

Alternatively, to only show the guidelines, copy and paste the following code into the article, filling the appropriate fields:

An example with both guidelines and rationales:

Via Serpentis ("Road of the Serpent")
Rating Moral Guideline Rationale
10 Failing to indulge your urges when they do not interfere with your work. You must understand desire in order to teach it.
9 Indulging your desires when they interfere with your devotion to Set. Desires are a means to an end, not an end in themselves.
8 Failing to collect wealth and influence. Every artisan must acquire the tools of his vocation.
7 Failing to spread Set's truth among mortals. If his name is forgotten, he will cease to exist.
6 Failing to encourage mortals to seek their freedom from Osiris. Your work is more important than anything except your worship of Set.
5 Abusing a ghoul. Your priests are disciples of and gifts from Set.
4 Supporting the rule of law in any way. Osiris is the enemy of Set, and you must take no action that aids him.
3 Putting any other vampire under the blood oath. Using the essence of Set to bind another vampire goes against the very freedom he champions.
2 Embracing one who does not worship Set. Only the deserving may drink of the river between life and death.
1 Failing to uphold Set's memory and worship him. What you do means nothing without your devotion to Set.

An example with only guidelines:

Humanity
Rating Moral Guideline
10 Selfish thoughts.
9 Minor selfish acts.

6 Accidental violation (drinking a vessel dry out of starvation).
5 Intentional property damage.
4 Impassioned violation (manslaughter, killing a vessel in Frenzy).
3 Planned violation (outright murder, savored exsanguination).
2 Casual violation (thoughtless killing, feeding past satiation).
1 Utter perversion or heinous acts.
