I speak, of course, of Tradition Book: These technomancers are still our enemies — the last Tradition in the seat of Matter, the Solificatibetrayed us greatly, and we still pay for their crimes.

Questions about the Verbena – Onyx Path Forums
Verbena But seriously, this is an awful, awful book. But the Traditions part of Mage is all about different paths to the same goal loosely collected together into mutual aid societies. Can you, with your illusions of comfort, say the same? Life is pleasure, but also pain.
They disagree what is most important, but they all recognize cycles and transitions as good things. I imagine there is little they hate more.

Over the centuries it took for witch-craze to die down, the Wyck came to practice their arts in secrecy and became known for dealing with their foes harshly.
You will hear them if you go anywhere the Verbena gather to drink mead. There will always be time for conflict later. The Verbena of the Glastonbury Circle are those who have matured beyond their years, and are prepared to serve as capable leaders and diplomats.
Correspondence – The Path of Hecate. You have some crazy dualist symbolism going on, and a tastefully worn cover.
Predators hunt and kill they prey, and the Verbena affirm the correctness in such natural actions. While neopagan and New Age ideals have replaced some of these missing pieces, it has only been after great debate and dissent within the Tradition.
We often battle, but just as often we stand together against those who would oppress us.
