Some games need a little extra something before they really click with you. The supplement, as the title implies, is an in-depth look at the subject of freeholds, including a detailed system for designing your own for your PCs to manage. Specifically, once you make sure to add in a freehold focus to your Changeling campaign, what you end up with is a sort of whimsical modern-day Ars Magica. Ars Magica is notable as being the RPG where reading books and undertaking extended crafting projects in downtime is given as much attention and can potentially be as much fun as actual adventuring. Savvy referees, of course, realise that the downtime action can feed into the adventuring and vice versa; being savvy publishers, Atlas Games have realised that whereas traditional RPGs call for traditional adventure scenarios, Ars Magica calls for scenarios based not just around immediate short-term adventures but also long-term projects and events. Hermetic ProjectsThis is essentially a compilation of extended examples of the sort of projects that can be accomplished using the main Order of Hermes magic system as presented in the core book; whilst additional options based on information on other supplements are presented here and there, it is entirely possible to accomplish any of the goals presented here — a covenant built inside an active volcano, a new Tower of Babel, a living corpse, a magic zoo, and more — simply using the core magic rules and the occasional bit of lateral thinking.

Hermetic Projects describes several long-running laboratory projects magi can undertake. The projects involve developing a series of related spells and enchanted items that all combine to enable some impressive feat. There are six projects described in detail, as well as a couple of pages on designing your own project . The goal of the Burning City project is to build a covenant inside an active volcano . The Intangible Assassin project develops an arsenal of spells with which to attack magi or other creatures with Magic Resistance from a distance using Arcane Connections . As stated in the first paragraph of the chapter, the main purpose of the project is to be effective at waging Wizard War. This chapter also contains an overview of Wizard War that looks like it would be sufficient to play through such a conflict in your Saga, even if you don't have the other rule books that describe Wizard's War namely, Houses of Hermes: True Lineages and Houses of Hermes: Societates.
