Magical Societies of New Orleans

Magical societies, lodges, cults and fringe groups have been a part of New Orleans’ culture since its founding, practically. Thus, it should come as no surprise that New Orleans — the name of which is practically synonymous with occultism and magic — houses a large and diverse Awakened community.

New Orleans is home to a large number of magical practitioners – certainly more than its share of the estimated 1%. As the quintessentially magical Southern mecca, the city of New Orleans attracts young men and women from all over the CAS. These young men and women are often fleeing the inevitable prejudice or control that others want to hold over their magical abilities.
