However, the "origin story" of magic and mages is less ambiguous or at least given more lip-service than that of vampires or werewolves. In the mythic past, a mysterious island existed with a single towering mountain, encircled by dragons that lived upon its summit. The mountain called to humanity through dreams and visions. Over time, the dragons left and the mountain continued to call. Some humans answered the call and sought it out. The humans who moved there discovered the first secrets of magic, and through magic they created the mighty city-state now known as Atlantis , Meru, Lemuria , etc.

Do you like this video? Watchtowers are powerful Supernal symbols that often manifest during an Awakening. Overview Edit Historically, the Watchtowers have not always been present. Only after the Atlantean Diamond was formed and the tale of Atlantis was spread among the Awakened, the Watchtowers revealed themselves. In Atlantean dogma, the Watchtowers were built by the Oracles, mages who managed to ascend alongside the Exarchs.
Through the will of the Oracles , the Watchtowers pierce the Lie and the Abyss , reestablishing contact between the Fallen World and the Supernal Realms. Every Watchtower is associated with a Path and an Oracle that guards it against the depredations of the Exarchs.
The Seers Awaken to the same Watchtowers as the Pentacle mages, often claiming that their Awakening has been guided by one of the Exarchs in their dreams, a phenomenon called a Tyrannic Awakening. Other Watchtowers Edit Although there are five official recorded watchtowers, others are rumored to exist.
The recently appeared Sixth Watchtower shows that it might be possible that other Watchtowers might form. Others, as the Unknown Tower , are rumored to exist, but not actively calling for initiates. The Tremere claim that there are at least two others: One they call the Sixth Dragon the Tremere also claim that the watchtowers are manifested dragons from the time before Atlantis , whom they claim to be the original source of vampirism , and the Final Watchtower , which contains the power of the Soul.
The Abyss also has corrupted versions of the Watchtowers, called the Dur-Abzu.
