Podemos começar talvez por considerarmos as Houses da Order of Hermes segundo Mage Revised:
Keep alive the base erudition and scholarship of the Order's founder
These mages delve deep into magical theory.
Many of the great discoveries of the order come from the tomes of the Bonisagus.
House Ex Miscellanea
A House that grew from the need to welcome mages whose studies didn't mesh with any other House.
The Order's tactical weapons
Come from a blend of Moorish and Spanish influence
Wield cleansing fire in their crusade for vengeance against the enemies of the Order
Mathematical mages of chance and probability
A modern House that concerns itself with high numerology, randomness, games and money
Recognize money as a magical concept
Draw out an intuitive understanding of chance events that leads to manipulation of happenstance
Although the Janissaries don't make the rules of the Order, they do enforce them.
Watch for signs of internal corruption, mages who've made the wrong sorts of deals or broken with the ideals of the Order
Then, the Janissaries take care of the problem, but who watches the watchers?
Oversee Hermetic Law
Decide cases of law and punishment
Make new precedents or cast aside old ones
Determine the fates of mages charged with criminal actions
Rarely enforce these dictates directly
Serve to interpet divine, Hermetic, personal and human laws
Embrace the early Egyptian trappings of the Order
Promote base linguistics as a key to understanding though, perception and thus the universe
Scribes of education, learning and wisdom
Predominantly feminine group
Maintain records with diligence and doubtless hold many dangerous secrets
Alchemists who practice material transformation as a metaphor for the evolution of human to divine
Experiment with chemical enlightenment, searching for higher perceptions
Techno-magicians that blend technological devices with the symbolism of the Order
Bind spirits and mystical powers into scientific forms
Do not rely so heavily on Masters and old mentors
Emphasize growth through conflict
Constantly seeking questions, challenges and trials worthy of their skills
Never content to sit on their laurels, there's always a higher mystery, a greater level of perfection and erudition
Strive to improve the Order, but their methods are often dangerous
