Since the fall of Rome, the wizards of the Order of Hermes have imposed their potent will on the Tapestry of reality, discovering, shaping and ordering the secret forces of the cosmos. Much of the modern world’s image of magic itself comes from the Order’s lore, filtered through sensationalistic minds. But the truth is even more sensational, for Hermetics don’t merely cast spells and summon demons. Their Art bends the universe itself to their will. With the rise of the Avatar Storm and the fall of its Horizon chantries, the Order faces the greatest challenge in its history — adapt to the modern world or relinquish all power to a monolithic science that denies the Art of Magic. Now more than ever, the Order needs the creativity and audacity of the Founders. Continues the revolution storyline in the wake of the Ascension War.
