[[Gehenna]] shattered the Masquerade, and with it the foundation of the Traditions.  Once everyone knew that Vampires existed, it became difficult to maintain one's domain or keep track of one's Childer.  But the Masquerade, broken though it was, became even more important than ever.  Keeping the existence of Vampires in general a secret was no longer an option, but keeping the identity and location of individual vampires and their safehouses a secret became even more vital than before. Those vampires who remained in mortal society, rather than retreat to the [[Umbra|Wraithlands]] or move to the [[Kingdom of Enoch]], mostly became masters of hiding in the shadows and underworld of human society.  Even when vampires became numerous enough and powerful enough to exert powerful control over mortal society from behind the scenes, as they often did on [[Wilke's Star]], whenever that influence became strong enough to be noticed, the [[Tech Infantry]] would arrive in force to cleanse the system of the undead.  As incomplete as those campaigns tended to be, they nevertheless killed thousands or millions of vampires each time, disrupting organizations and hierarchies, and leading to decades of internal conflict as the vampiric power structure was re-established.  Even in the Kingdom of Enoch, the Camarilla enforced most of the Traditions, partly out of force of habit, partly out of practical necessity.  The humans in Enoch needed to be kept from rebelling, and to be seen by their fellow humans in the [[Earth Federation|Federation]] as well enough treated to not have their liberation be seen as an urgent excuse for war.

Once the [[Enoch|Enoch system]] was destroyed and the rest of the Kingdom absorbed into the Federation, Vampires were driven underground once more.  With the last of the [[Antediluvian]]s seemingly dead, the Sabbat became the most powerful force in Vampiric Society...but they found themselves forced by necessity to observe the spirit if not the letter of the law of the Traditions, lest [[Crusader Team]]s wipe them out entirely.  The [[Ascension War]] and its aftermath solidified the Sabbat's position as the new organized core of undead society, and the Purchase Pact and Code of Milan replaced the Traditions as the formal legal framework for Vampire Society, but the new [[Masquerade]] is still the core of their survival strategy.
