Description Edit | History

From the publisher website:

Learn the Secrets of the Magi

Houses of Hermes describes the twelve houses that compose the Order of Hermes, their origins, their histories, and their recent actions. It provides important and dynamic information for players and storyguides alike, adding detail and drama to any Ars Magica saga. It includes:

* A plot connected to each house. Each plot is grand enough to serve as the focus of your troupe's saga.
* Story ideas for each house, for shorter-term play. These ideas bring the natures and styles of the various houses to life.
* Sample magi who can serve as the player characters' masters, as non-player character in your saga, or as models for mid-level magi.
* New spells and abilities representing the houses' differing specialties, including faerie magic and the special spells of the quaesitoris.
* An in-depth treatment of apprenticeship, from the apprentice's and master's points of view.
* A record of the Order's history, from ancient times to A.D. 1220, including the crises that have shaken the Order and the growing threat from mundane civilization.

More Information Edit | History

This book was published with an Ars Magica fourth edition logo on the cover. This logo does not refer to the fourth edition of Ars Magica that was eventually published by Atlas in late 1996 (two years after Houses of Hermes) but to a fourth edition that Wizards of the coast had planned to release in 1995.

The game mechanics in Houses of Hermes are completely compatible with third edition Ars Magica they do not reflect the game mechanics changes that took place with the release of fourth edition.
