Witch the Awake


An anti-platonic interpretation of Mage.

Title: Witch the Awake *

THE PENTACLE:
An ancient order founded by wise-men & women (aka: witches). For whom building the highest level of civilization has been the prime concern throughout the millennia. The battle has been fought socially, mentally and physically. Both through social discource and political debate, as well as through special operations. The main opponenents in these battles has traditionally been: Seers of the Throne, xxxxx and Scelesti. As well as a diverse multitude of supernatural entities popping up all around the globe. When speaking high speech watch-tower means primary task & atlantean means civilised!
