Here are the currently active Chantries on Liberation.
There may be additional cabals on grid. Ask around in game.
Ascension Lodge is a university campus nestled in the Hollywood Dell. Boasting of a massive library in the Athenaeum, and a Tower lodging many faculty offices and cells, it is a hub of the Order of Hermes in Los Angeles. Founded by Gregory Temple bani Fortunae and Marjorie Prince bani Jerbiton, The Lodge rose with the wild heyday of old Hollywood, descended into a ruin of drug-addled orgies in the 70s, but has been revived in the present day. Mages new and old have come to rebuild the once-great institution.
Prince ended up going mad, kidnapping and killing Temple in a deranged ritual in a pocket realm in the hopes of awakening the Conquering Child’s brood to overrun the Los Angeles area. The Lodge’s reputation will recover, but it will take some effort. And the new generation of Mages is certainly up to the task, having rebuilt the Tower, hired new leadership, awakened a new Node, and recovered its heirloom wonder, the Orrery.
Glendale Tool Company
In the Tropico neighborhood of Glendale, Dr. Nash Smith (Sons of Ether, Utopian League) founded the Glendale Tool Company (GTC) to capitalize on the post-Storm lull in the Ascension War. Operating openly as a 501(c)3 non-profit think tank, the GTC engages in a variety of activities to try to influence the Consensus. GTC members consult on public service projects, tutor teenagers in math and science, host epic fireworks shows, launch subversive cryptocurrencies, and engage on social and streaming media.
Funded by Harold Montague’s Glendale Tool Trust, the GTC is the leading front of the ephemeral Phantom Current confederation of Virtual Adept and Sons of Ether cabals and chantries. It is also, beneath the surface, a chantry gearing for open warfare in the confines of its massive hangar, which once built Montague Aerospace etherships before the Storm.
Respect Community Center
After the Los Angeles riots culminated a rise in shocking violence between Los Angeles’s Black and Korean communities, Amos Williams (Spirit Forge Dreamspeaker) from South Central and Mi-Sook “Missy” Park (Akashic of the Sulsa school) from Koreatown founded the Respect Community Center (RCC) in Arlington Heights. Hidden in plain sight in one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Los Angeles, right between Koreatown and South Central, the RCC reaches out to the youth of the both sides, trying to teach tolerance, life skill, and most importantly, respect for others and for self.
The death of Missy after a long and respected life, along with Amos himself reaching old age, has seen Respect reach out for new blood to keep the project alive. Its nondescript building primarily teaches martial arts and trade skills such as auto repair and metal work.
Virgens de Los Angeles
Founded by a triumvirate of service-conscious Mages, Virgens de Los Angeles serves the poor of Los Angeles. Sitting in the Good Shepherd soup kitchen in Boyle Heights, it reaches into Skid Row, attempting to shape it into a Reality Zone that enables the Mages to do good works.
However most of the old guard have sought retirement, leaving just Sister Maria Alvarez (Celestial Chorus) to step back as an “Elder,” while new young leaders come in to address new threats. When Skid Row can be devastated by a huge corporation, feeding the poor is not enough to help those most in need.
It has sadly, recently been destroyed.
A mysterious immigrant Sahajiya named Carmon Gonzalez built an underground anarcho-magickal movement near DTLA. She was eventually revealed as playing a very dangerous game, threatening the entire Council in Los Angeles. This lead to her being captured and put on trial, the aftermath of which is still being played out.
