Mage: The Gun Quarter
The Reading Room
In the trendy Chelsea neighbourhood of west London, there is a posh hotel known as The Lodge. On the seemingly non-existent 13th Floor of the Lodge lies a secret meeting place of The Serpent Society. Accessed via the stairwell landing and a special ritual, The Reading Room is home to the library of the Serpent Society and the resting place of The Orb of Elantris. Twice a year the members of the Serpent Society convene to induct new members, advance the rank of existing members, and to summon into a member of the Serpent Society the next demon from the Book of Names. Serpent Society members of the rank of Initiate and higher have unrestricted access to the Library, and members of the rank of Learned Brothers and higher may use the Orb of Elantris by appointment.
