How to Join
Becoming a member of the Camarilla gives you access to the largest and best World of Darkness chronicle in the world. You will be able to play your favorite games with thousands of other club members, meet new friends and get exclusive sneak peaks and other perks from White Wolf. All memberships are processed through White Wolf's online store.
The very best way to get to know the Camarilla is to try it out, so you are invited to do just that for six months - for free. This trial membership gives you access to all the privileges of full membership, with one or two exceptions.
A full membership grants you access to the entirety of the Camarilla's benefits and chronicles, for the low cost of $20. Your membership lasts for a full year. Full memberships are purchased through our online store. You may also use this link to renew your membership, and even to purchase or renew a membership for someone else. Details on how to apply a purchased membership toward a renewal or toward someone else will arrive in your purchase confirmation email.
