A Road (in Latin, Via) is the term used for the various teachings which focus on maintaining a Cainites hold on his/her Beast. Every vampire must follow among one of the roads unless he is to be mastered by his Beast and degenerates to a savage being with hunger and rage as the only motivations.

There exist five major Roads, and several minor Roads. The major Roads are the most commonly found, not only in Britannia but in every part of the world where vampires exist. They are quite broadly described, with a lot of ways to interpret their teachings. The minor Roads are less common, often only found within a single Clan or Bloodline, and also more specialized, and sometimes also harder to follow. In addition, most Roads offer specialized minor “Paths”, which can be followed if the Road doesn’t offer the direction needed. Also, several Cainites have devised their own variations to their own Roads, modifying them until they fit their own lifestyle. Sometimes they are organized into a distinct Path (or in some cases, entire Road), when enough followers are gained.

Here is a list of the Roads (and their different Paths) currently available in Britannia. This information will be updated as new Paths appear or older ones disappear.
