Following The Sundering House Tremere have been limited to five covenants in the Transylvanian Tribunal. The term covenant in that Tribunal means something very different now, more akin to a class of 'citizenship' according to Against the Dark. Instead the term oppida (singular: oppidum) is employed for what is more conventionally called a covenant elsewhere in Mythic Europe. Members of different covenants are usually present in any given oppida, and perhaps confusingly Coeris is both a covenant (to which all cives belong) but also a oppida (where not all cives reside).
