The Secret Garden
A cabal of mages claiming an ancient lineage, dating back to pre-Roman times. They are based at the Greenwich Observatory. They are currently fractured and directionless, following the death of their leader Tennyson – he apparently perished in the Angelstorm.
In an alternate timeline, the Lodge were the most powerful cabal in London. This power was largely derived from the fact that the Lodge controlled London’s four greatest Nodes at St Paul’s Cathedral, Boudicca’s Mound on Hampstead Heath, Ceasar’s Well on Wimbledon Common and the Queen’s House at Greenwich. The Lodge also attempted to impose a set of Protocols and Rights on the city (which they pompously termed the Lex Magica) but their reign was in name only. The Lodge guarded its Nodes jealously – mages avoided approaching them without prior invitation.
