Pentacle Orders

The Magical Order a mage belongs to provides him with two advantages, in addition to network, status and contacts.
A member of an order is trained in magical practices, receiving a bonus when using them. This is +1D to improvised spells using that practice and +2D to rotes using that practice.
The mage also has a merit, one that is usually dependent on status or gnosis.
