  • Ceoris in modern era

    I would like to know if Ceoris is still under Tremere control, despite the fact there is no much Vis there anymore. I think Ardan Lane (the Tremere character's sire of my coterie) is the regent.

    At least he was appointed there to handling the politic of romania and during WW2 he helped caïnites who fled the conflict.

    So if it's right, what is he doing now ? Looking for the Incunabulum Kupalam ?

    During the Renaissance, the Gargoyles rose up against their masters, slaying many Tremere and all but razing the chantry. In the aftermath of both the Gargoyle Revolt and the Anarch Revolt, the Tremere abandoned Ceoris, relocating their seat of power to Etrius' chantry in Vienna.
    So its a burnt out abbandoned ruin...
    Tho' totally could see some Baali sneaked in there, or a Tzimisce retook it as a presonal vengenace against the Usurpers...
    And who knows the Root of All and the Stars Above had/have any plans related to Ceoris... some plot that bridge the ages...

      Exactly only it happened before the Second World War and Ardane is supposed to have taken in refugees from the conflicts.

        Which Transylvania Chronicles book says Ardan took in refugees in Ceoris? The last? Also, were these vampiric or mortal refugees?

          The "official" status of Ceoris is up for debate. According to House of Tremere is the place is abandoned by the end of the 16th century. However, information on Lane suggests something is still going on at the site, at least enough to warrant assigning him to the location. Unless it is just ruins and the assignment is punishment or exile. And I don't think Lane's status in modern night, since the Fall of Vienna, has been specified.

            Grumpy RPG Reviews did come up with a great idea that its now a historical relic that's called the Scholomance.

              From TC4, Adane's background:

              When war breaks out in Austria in*1914, Ardan once again moves to Ceoris at the behest of the*Council of Seven, who feel his subtlety serves them best in Eastern Europe. Unlike many*kindred, Ardan does not flee Romania during the Nazi occupation. He maintains Ceoris as a*haven*for Tremere refugees (those who disagree with serving Hitler's National Socialism) and continues his efforts to hold the chantry inviolate against both mortal enemies and hostile*Tzimisce.

              Ardan weathers the Communist regime in Romania, seeking alliances with some of the more tolerant (if such is possible) non-Sabbat*Tzimisce whenever possible. After the fall of*Ceaușescu, Ardan attempts to reassert Tremere power among the kindred of Romania. The recent reappearance of his*sire,*Celestyn, from his journeys among the*Kuei-jin*has renewed Ardan’s dormant interest in affairs outside the insular world of Romanian Kindred.

              The Scholomance is also a good idea, turning him into an infernalist in those dark ruins where some demons have been sealed by Etrius.

                I wrote a brief bit about Ceoris in another thread, one on head cannon's I believe. I suggested the place is a stop on one of the "supernatural" tours in Eastern Europe. By way of comparison a Dracula tour will visit Castle Bran, and Hunedoara Castle, among a few other places.

                In the WoD the ruins of Ceoris are called "Scholomance" and are a stop for such a tour, a day trip and picnick spot. Mortals don't usually spend the night, but it lovely during the day time. Exploring the lower levels of the ruins is discouraged because they are considered dangerous in a normal way - falling stones and the like - but are just considered mundane. The tours include people in costumes saying things like "hoary hosts of hoggoth." The Tremere hate this but haven't been able to stop it, because the Tzimisce think it's funny and protect the tour company.
