Early times[ edit ] In the game, Mages have always existed, though there are legends of the Pure Ones who were shards of the original, divine One. Early mages cultivated their magical beliefs alone or in small groups, generally conforming to and influencing the belief systems of their societies. Obscure myths suggest that the precursors of the modern organizations of mages originally gathered in ancient Egypt. This period of historical uncertainty also saw the rise of the Nephandi in the Near East. Eventually, though, mages belonging to the Order of Hermes and the Messianic Voices attained great influence over European society.

Magick, real magick, isthe purest of philosophies, the truest of sciences, the ultimate revelation and power. Someone you know is probably a mage, unbeknownst to you. Look for us, Harold.
