"Since the times of the Exile and dispersion from that great polis
have the Awakened formed together in unity and purpose.
These cabals are the cornerstones of our society,
the blocks from which shall be built a new city.
Each sanctum is a part of this shining, dispersed city,
each Hallow a jewel in its treasury.
Let it be known that no man,
spirit or creature
shall violate such sanctity.
At the price of death."
- Simon Magnus, Silver Ladder warlock, illuminator of the Lex Magica
Ivory Towers Reaching for the Heavens
The Fallen World resists the efforts of mages to impose higher realities onto the mundane laws of nature. The very disbelief of Sleeper souls can unravel spells, but mages can build strongholds that establish a foothold for their Supernal Realms. In these sacred sites, mages can perform wonders akin to those of their Atlantean ancestors.
