The introduction to the adventure explains how the origins of the Order of Hermes involved the merging of traditions from the Roman-originated Order of Mercury with Druidic knowledge about spontaneous casting of magic. The same subject is further detailed in the Order of Hermes book, also written for the Second Edition of Ars Magica.
