This proud Victorian-style manor stands in the city's residential area. No one knows it's exact location as the manor seems to find those it deems worthy of entry rather than the other way around. Past the wrought metal gates a stone path threads its way up to the wooden porch and the house's main door. A sign reads "Infinity Club: Members Only". On the gate itself, a "Wet Paint" sign "coincidentally" turns aside those with only casual interest in the structure. Stepping inside brings one into the mansion's entry hall, which has been converted into a small club. A scattering of tables, chairs and couches offer places to relax and talk, while a well-stocked bar, a jukebox and a dartboard offer other distractions. Beyond them all a number of warded doorways and staircases lead deeper into the manor proper. (Tradition Magi and Allies only)

: Most are not, though I am trying to locate again the Traditions breakdown world wide off the Onyx Press forums (Found it here -> tinyurl.com/MageDemographics ). And, I do not find it at all surprising that the OoH has the largest piece of the proverbial pie of the traditions in the world (I 22% of the whole of All Tradition Mage belong to one of the Hermetic Houses, & seconded by the Society of Ether with 15%).
: Lost my color, ah well. Though, also the OoH has had the Highest death percentage (easily double that of any other Tradition on average). Was that due to infighting, fighting the 'good' fight for Ascension &/or partly (in canon) the purge that the Euthanati did as they slaughtered a 'heretical' House's Masters? The breakdown does not say, other than they took the most, seconded by the Dreamspeakers.
: Out of the Canon references from Mexico, the three biggest are (in descending order) Celestial Choirs, Dreamspeakers & (of Course) the OoH. Don't hate on me, that is what OPP (Onyx Path Publishing) has it as.
: ((I have a Mexican mage. He's a Cultist.))
Theophrastus bani Solificati (OoH): (A slender young man who looks younger than his twenty one years of age, Theo has long blond hair in a pony tail, and dark lenses glasses that look custom designed. When they are lowered, they betray orbs of pale green. As fitting his body, his fingers are long and flex from time with precise movements and show some stains similar to that of rolling your own cigarettes. Cargo pants maybe out of style but he seems to prefer as many pockets as possible judging by those as well as his jacket.)
Theophrastus bani Solificati (OoH): (entering from outdoors, Theo looks at the perfume bottles in his hands and shakes his head)
Theophrastus bani Solificati (OoH): "How I avoided Paradox on that, I'm not sure." (He shakes his head) "I could make a fortune if I could make it in consensus, but medical use is... well, it's not really going to help."
Theophrastus bani Solificati (OoH): (he frowns at some of the dust accumulating) "Are the robot roombas down? Lately dust bunnies seem to be collecting." (A thought) "Huh. Yeah, I can whip up a cleaner for that."
Theophrastus bani Solificati (OoH): (And into the Hermetic wing he goes to work on something that can dissolve dustbunnies without hurting anything else)
Theophrastus bani Solificati (OoH): (gone)
: Who's Onyx Path Publishing
: You could Google it - but from their site, "Onyx Path Publishing is a company founded in January 2012 by White Wolf Creative Director Rich Thomas. Following October 2011's layoffs at CCP, CCP/White Wolf was no longer in a good position to do publishing in addition to the main business of making computer games. As a result, Rich founded Onyx Path Publishing to handle this business."
: In short, OPP was needed to keep the cWoD alive for the fans of & 20th Anniversary stuff. CCP had also purchased a number of other small RPG companies (like Guardians of Order that made the "Big Eyes, Small Mouth" d6 tri-stat system & had licensing for anime game titles like "Sailor Moon RPG"), but many of those did not get reorganized after the mergers.
: What's CCP?

Nick Farrell -Cultist-: *His dark brown eyes are bloodshot as he walks into the freehold. Bags of groceries carried. Especially since he knows with the time passed, no one EVER gets enough veggies.*
Nick Farrell -Cultist-: *And thus, he starts slicing. Asparagus. Weird.*
Nick Farrell -Cultist-: *A block of goat cheese. The nice melty kind. With peppers, looks like. Eggs. Burritos. He's making breakfast burritos? In the middle of the night?*
Nick Farrell -Cultist-: *He's got a lovely little collection of burritos by the time he's done. He wraps some of them up, and he takes four with him. To his room.*
