From the Book's Opening Paragraph:
Welcome to "Finals Week," the eighth and final installment of the Gloria Mundi chronicle for Mage: The Awakening. In it, the characters become involved in the search for a magical artifact stolen during a break-in on the Harvard campus. The artifact, a mask of Hecate, was stolen by a young mage named Clint Zellner, who has only just awakened. Shortly after the theft, though, the mask ends up in the hands of one Dr. Benjamin Imes, a reluctant Seer of the Throne. How the characters react to this theft and the subsequent discovery of who has it drives the action of "Finals Week."
This story can serve one of two purposes, depending upon whether the characters banished the Pride-spirit in "Descent." If they did not, then this story provides closure to the matter of the Vice-spirits. If they already destroyed this spirit, then "Finals Week" opens the chronicle to new enemies, new dangers and new possibilities - to Gloria Mundi, the glory of the world.
