"Anarch" is a designation for a special type of Independent vampire. An anarch vampire is Independent (non-Camarilla and non-Sabbat). If the vampire joins either sect, he loses his anarch status along with his Independent status. A vampire who is not an anarch may become an anarch by the effects of various cards. There is also a new cardless action option available for the vampire to join the anarch cause as a +1 stealth action that costs blood, although vampires with titles are prohibited from taking that action.
