An article posted on SAVN on 1 April entitled “Amy Mah To Succeed Octarine Valur” by Kay Valkir was an April Fool’s Day prank. We trust that the article in question will be seen as such. To clarify, Lady Octarine Valur has no intention at this time of stepping down as Regent of the SAVA… and neither does she have a stamp collection.
We trust that no panic was caused by the announcement and wish all our readers a very amusing April 1 2016!
It was announced late yesterday by the Regent of the SAVA, Lady Octarine Valur, that she would be stepping down in favor of Lady Amelia Mah who would be assuming full control of the South African Vampyre Alliance as well as all its associated groups, sub-organizations and online resources.
As Regent, Lady Mah – who owns a large number of OVC Facebook groups – would also represent the interests of the SAVA in all international VC representative bodies currently attended by Lady Valur. Continue reading

Despite the survey being linked to and distributed across all known South African VC groups as well as cross-posted to in local Pagan groups and even a few international VC groups, and several admonitions to complete the survey, the number of responses received in this week was only 25.

The South African Vampyre Alliance, a body which has been active in building the SA Vampyre Community since May 2011, is in the process of undergoing major internal restructuring, with several changes already in process.
The Regency decided over the past week that the purpose of these changes is to streamline functioning of existing internal SAVA bodies, to determine which of these are redundant, and especially to increase member participation as well as the total effectiveness of the organization itself within the SA VC.
Very importantly, among the things that will undergo radical change is the SAVA hierarchy and structures which are already well known in the general VC. Continue reading
