Domus Magna

Hi sodales,

another topic:

where are informations about the different domus magnus? (aegis, inhabitants...)

I'm taking all information, because i'd want to create some "convenants of the order as existing" repertory file for future adventures.

in each of the tribunal books i think.

for exemple roman tribunal :

uh? isn't it from another edition?

I have read that, but i think it's no longer up to date?

yes but as far as i know ther is no plan to do this all over again.
So it is our only source of information.

Oh ...

Any houserules / house made domus magna?

There are two Tribunal books for Fifth Edition: the Lion and the Lily, and Guardians of the Forest. Each of them goes into detail about the domus magnae in their area.

You can also find 5th Edition information about the domus magna of each House in the respective House book. For instance, I wrote a few paragraphs about the domus magna of House Flambeau in Houses of Hermes: Societates.

The older Tribunal books like Rome and Iberia are indeed out of date and may be contradicted by more recent books. However they can still be useful. They may give more information than is available in the current edition, or you may like the older version better. For example, I'll tease my friend Marko a little bit and say he definitely prefers how House Flambeau was portrayed in the Iberia Tribunal book over the 5th Edition House book. :slight_smile:

I know realize that all the changes in cannon are the result of Romulans and Spock travelling back in time :laughing:

I also think Iberia is a beautiful (though flawed) sourcebook. It was my first :wink:. But anyway, no Domus is located in that book. The original Covenants from second edition contains information about Val-Negra, the original Flambeau domus. Awesome setting for an adventure, it is sadly too worn out and decrepit to serve as an effective domus magnus. Covenants also has Coeris I think (or was that the original Order of Hermes book? I forget).

Some Domas Magnae are listed in detail and others are just referenced with tidbits about culture and sites. Off the top of my head:
