Awesome / Mage: The Awakening

  • The Great Refusal. Back in the day, the Free Council was just a collection of Apostate mages calling themselves the Nameless, who didn't care for either the Pentacle Orders or the Seers of the Throne, instead focusing on implementing modern mortal ideas in the study of magic. However, at the beginning of the 20th century, the Seers approached the Nameless, asking them to join together against the Pentacle Orders so they could hoard all the magical power for themselves. The Nameless reacted poorly, as the name suggests, slaughtering large numbers of Seers and formally aligning with the Pentacle Orders by declaring themselves a new mage Order.
