In very formal domains, the Chancellor maintains records of prestation, defining who has pledged what to whom. Not all domains use the services of the Chancellor, while others roll its duties into those of the Harpy and some use the Chancellor to approach the Harpies in the name of the Prince. Some sects other than the Camarilla make use of the position (sometimes under a different title) as well. In some of these very conservative domains, the Chancellor reads the roll of domain debts before any official gathering of the city's Kindred, so that the state of Kindred obligations is made known to all.
The Chancellor has final say over the validity or satisfaction of a boon. If a Chancellor declares a boon satisfied or still owed, the debt still exists, and any challenge to that debt held either by the debtor or the debt-holder must be settled with the Chancellor or the Prince.
