The Tower of Agena Chantry
The Tower of Agena is a Chantry that welcomes all the Magi of the Southern Hemisphere. It is named after the star Agena (a.k.a Beta Centauri). Agena lies in the right foreleg of the Centaur constellation and is only visible in the southern hemisphere. All of the Chantry members wear a band of otherworldly metal which is supposed to originate from somewhere in the Beta Centauri solar system. The Bands of Agena are also magical luck charms, imbued with the spirit of Agena. (They often help with social rolls when dealing with sleepers !)
The main building itself has been destroyed by the Shadow. No one is certain what remains of the entire network that the Chantry built.
What is a Chantry ?
It is a mystical dwelling, a spiritual structure with earthly aspects. Here mages and their servitors can meet or reside, to study magic, to experiment, to hide. Agena was particularly known as a refuge for mages of any Tradition or creed. The Chief Magus, Amangon, was (is ?) the Chairman of the Council of Traditions.
The Tower of Agena chantry had separated itself into several divisions.
