About The Lion and the Lily

In Mythic France, many powers hold sway. The nobility sit on their thrones, the Church exercises power from its pulpits, and the great cities grow inexorably, swallowing the ancient forests. 

While the magi of the Hermetic Order do not meddle in the affairs of the mundane, they must adapt to survive here, even distributing their limited magical resources in tournaments modeled on the chivalric tourneys of the nobility.

Explore the shores of Brittany, take part in a Hermetic tournament, and pass the challenges to enter the Covenant of Fudaris. This supplement contains a detailed starter covenant: Confluensis.
