On the fifteenth of June 1993, the following message is read aloud in the local Elysium by the most senior member of Clan Tremere in the cities of; Las Vegas, Dallas, Atlanta, Washington DC, Baltimore, Halifax, Ottawa, Edinburgh, Paris, Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseilles, Vienna, Brussels, Perth, and Sydney. Word then spreads quickly among political circles.
Let it be-known, forthwith and hereafter, that the Regent DuSable, in consultation with the Primogen of Chicago have formalized the policy and location of Elysium within Chicago.
In enforcement of the traditions, the following sites are forever declared Elysium. At all times, these sites are sacrosanct, whether scheduled for court or naught.
- Art Institute of Chicago
- Central Library
- Civic Opera House
The Primogen shall meet monthly, or as needed, upon the last day of the month. In addition, open Court will be held on the first, and fifteenth day of each month, following this rotation:
- Art Institute of Chicago; January, April, July, October
- Central Library; February, May, August, November
- Civic Opera House; March, June, September, December
We continue to hold the rules set out by the former Prince in the highest regard;
- On pain of a Blood Hunt, no violence is permitted on the premises against Kindred, kine, or physical objects.
- The Elysium is to be considered neutral ground. No conflict of any sort between Kindred may be carried onto its sacred ground.
- Access shall not be limited; all Cainites are welcome.
- One should not attract attention us one leaves and enters Elysium.
Furthermore, the following sites which were once used as Elysium have been ceded as Domain to the Clan Toreador. for their safekeeping and loyal service:
- Chicago Academy of Science
- Chicago Historical Society
- Freeport Art Museum
- Martin D’Arcy Gallery of Art
- Museum of Contemporary Art
- Terra Museum of American Art
