Chrome in the Shadows
There are many different paths to the Vigil. Some keep the Vigil alone spending long lonely nights fighting the evil that is in the shadows while fighting to maintain their tenuous grip on sanity. Others seek or are recruited into organizations that keep the Vigil. Before joining an organization the smart hunter finds out what they can about them.
Compacts are small sects of hunters with decentralized direction but pooled resources and tend to have local focus and influence.
Conspiracies are sects of hunters with a centralized direction, resources and are often global.
