Jus Primae Noctis

A Campaign for Mage: The Sorceror's Crusade

"Many brave men lived before Agamemnon; but all are overwhelmed in eternal night, unwept, unknown, because they lack a sacred poet." --- Horace

Jus Primae Noctis (also droit de cuissage, derecho de pernada, herrenrecht der ersten nacht) is the right by which a lord may sleep the first night with the bride of a newly married serf, although the custom could be avoided by the payment of a fine. Today it is widely thought to be a myth, something that never existed at all.

The game is still very much under construction and somewhat on hold. We ran into a few bugs between my expectations and the expectations of the players.
