So, as a GM in a Saga, what would you require for PCs to help assist the creation of a new house?
Of course, as always, it's a bit late for me. I have this coming up as a possible plot line for the PCs, should they decide to bite on it further. See my previous Cult of Jupiter thread for some of the ideas that I've used. This is a Latin, Pre-Hermetic tradition that has survived in a Regio. What the PC's have found when they've broached the idea with senior Magi, the responses I have given are
1.) Such a new lineage should bring some kind of Hermetic Breakthrough to the Order, surpassing some kind of lesser Limit. All of the Founders (arguably some less than others) contributed to the Order.
2.) (and/or to the above) The lineage should already have a substantial number of members, likely 50+
3.) Having some Magi of the Order already willing to be members of this house.
One point on which I'm not sure, is, if a such a lineage first joins Ex Miscellenea, they would pretty much have an impossible time of trying to create their own separate house.
Any other ideas on this subject would be very cool.
