Lion of the North: The Loch Leglean Tribunal is an Ars Magica supplement covering the Loch Leglean Tribunal and Mythic Scotland.

Subject and Contents[edit]

The Loch Leglean Tribunal as portrayed in Lion of the North is a wild hinterland of the Order. It is a stronghold of House Ex Miscellanea. The Faerie Realm is strong in Mythic Scotland and several dangerous faeries are described.

Hermetic History[edit]

Lion of the North is the first supplement set in the British Isles, so it (rather than Heirs to Merlin) covers the war between Pralix and Damhan-Allaidh that led to the founding of House Ex Miscellanea. It describes Pralix's campaign and her recruitment of the hedge wizards of Britain and Scotland. As of Fifth Edition, this history is no longer canonical and it has been changed somewhat in more recent supplements such as Houses of Hermes: Societates.

Order of Odin[edit]

Lion of the North also includes the first reference to the Order of Odin, a mysterious group of Scandinavian magicians that is portrayed as a potential rival to the Order of Hermes. Again, because this is a Third Edition book, its treatment of the Order of Odin is no longer canonical.


A tradition of Highland Scottish hedge wizards, the Gruagachan (singular, grugach) are detailed. They are powerful shape-shifters, but also possess other powers. The general consensus in the fan community seems to be that the rules for gruagachan in Lion of the North (which were written for ArM3) are over-powered, but fortunately the tradition has been revised and expanded in Hedge Magic Revised Edition (pages 55-78).


Three covenants are described:
