The Lex Magica are the laws by which the Awakened govern the practice of magic. For the most part, one mage does not dare to tell another how he should perform his Art, but when magic endangers others (or the political goals of a powerful mage or cabal), the practitioner might come under the eye of the law. The Consilium expects each cabal to police its own membership and levy punishments for those who reveal magical secrets. Truly grand betrayals might bring the judgment of a Consilium, especially if other mages or cabals are directly harmed by the offense.

The following are examples of the Law.

  • Casting vulgar magic witnessed by more than one Sleeper: A mild reprimand, accompanied by a form of penance, such as a night of watch duty or reorganizing the sanctum library.
  • Casting vulgar magic witnessed by one or more Sleepers who then tell other Sleepers about the incident: A severe reprimand, with more extreme penance, perhaps including making good on one of the cabal's debts.
  • Casting vulgar magic that leaves behind enduring evidence of magic, even if Sleeper Disbelief eventually destroys such evidence: The Consilium council might be convened (if someone files an official complaint) to decide the punishment, which might include a term of incarceration if the mage shows no remorse or regard for consequences.
  • Speaking about the Mysteries within earshot of Sleepers: A mild reprimand, as above.
  • Teaching uninitiated Sleepers about the Mysteries: A severe reprimand. This does not include intentionally diverting Sleepers from the truth, such as the Guardians of the Veils' fake cults and covens, used to baffle Sleeper attempts to discover the truth.
  • Publishing secrets that Sleepers might read, including dissemination on the Internet: A Consilium might convene to decide the punishment. (Articles written in Atlantean do not count. It is considered a "safe" language, impossible for Sleepers to read.)
