The purpose of this covenant is not for lore though there is some brief background to explain the covenant. It is to challenge yourself. The covenant has harsh restrictions and forces you to play in a way many do.
If you plan on joining please let go of ideas such as stunlock, poise, stat maxing and one on one gameplay.
This isn't a covenant for duelists or tanks.
To start off you are restricted to making characters that focus on dexterity and intelligence. You may use sorceries dependent on the type of character you chose to join as. Your weapon choice is restricted to small weapons and in some cases only daggers or no weapons at all. There are few pieces of armor you may wear, many have little to no defence, none have poise but some may increase your magic abilities.
The details of the covenant are laid out in the Assassins of Vinheim wiki page, linked in my signature.
Anyone, xbox or ps3 is welcome to join so long as they wish to follow the rules.
This covenant is hard to play as but it is extremely rewarding.
