The Ankh is an international symbol recognized by many vampyres as part of real vampyre culture. Vampyric groups use individualized forms of the ancient Egyptian symbol associated with immortality as their insignia, many vampyres wear it as an identifying sign in the form of a pendant and it often can be found on books, documents and websites.
Welcome to the official website of BLACK ROSE SOCIETY – Proud protectorate of House Sauromatos.
BLACK ROSE SOCIETY is a young organization of real vampyres dedicated to education, outreach, international community networking and providing opportunities to gain personal experience about real vampyre culture and its traditional structures such as houses and covens.
BLACK ROSE SOCIETY enables interested self-identified vampyres and black swans to get to know and work together with its overseeing board and its sponsor in House Sauromatos in an unconstrained and non-obligatory environment.
BLACK ROSE SOCIETY was founded on the initiative of House Sauromatos in November 2017 as its first protectorate-partner.
Essentially independent of its patron in House Sauromatos,
BLACK ROSE SOCIETY has been taking on many of the functions marking a traditional outer court to a vampyric household:
Providing a safe haven to gather, to mingle, to exchange news and information, to enjoy hospitality, to befriend, to learn on a basis of personal knowing.
In this, BLACK ROSE SOCIETY is explicitly open to all interested parties who might be sympathetic to us, both vampyres and black swans, whether they seek closer affiliation with our sponsor in House Sauromatos or not, and indeed, whether they are familiar with the customs of vampyre society or still seek to learn more.
Since 2019, BLACK ROSE SOCIETY has promoted and supported the global vampire subculture through weekly moderated discussions in two languages and regular regional meetings.
Our internationally oriented community organization offers vampires and black swans an uncomplicated and well-maintained network to exchange ideas with other members from Europe and abroad using the third-party platform Discord.
The majority of our membership is German speaking.

BLACK ROSE SOCIETY is also hosting or otherwise supports different kinds of local events, currently concentrating on German-speaking regions. We encourage and support our members in their projects to build up and strengthen regional vampyric structures.

BLACK ROSE SOCIETY is internationally-minded and our dedicated Discord server reflects this fact. Except where otherwise stated English is the preferred language used on our Discord server. Our bilingual community provides dedicated German language areas for our main membership, which is largely based in German-speaking European countries.
