Back to Business

I've got my technical issues sorted, and I'm back up. I've got several posts on my list, and I hope to get them out there over the next week. First up is the last three sessions, one of them a one-on-one with Bomb-master Bansl, and one being Yolander's last chapter for now -- Håvard is out on paternity leave for the foreseeable future. I'll try to cover them in one posting, and if I can keep my focus, that should be up before I turn in for the night...

As for those of you who've got blogs out there, I am looking forward to catching up on your ramblings and musings.

EDIT: Nope. Won't be posting more tonight. I'll finish the chapter-post tomorrow.


  1. YAY! glad to see you back!

  2. Glad things are sorted out! I wanted to ask, what books besides the core rules would you recommend for someone getting into M:tA? Thanks!

  3. @Loq:
    Thanks, sweetie. I'm sorry I missed your M:tA bash last week. I'll pop over and leave a comment soon anyway.

    Basically, WoD and M:tA are only books you need, but there are of course others you'll find useful. I two I use the most are Summoners and Book of Spirits, but unless you plan on using the spirit-world actively in your game, those are optional.

    One book I would recommend though, is Tome of the Mysteries. It contains a pant-load of spells, and covers magic in a very thorough fashion. It is out of print for now, so you would have to get it as a PDF (WW are apparently going print-on-demand on their entire back-catalogue, so eventually we should be able to get a hold of a dead-tree version).

    From what I gather, the various faction-books are quite good as well, but since I've axed all the Atlantean fluff, I don't use any of those.

    All in all, I would recommend you start with the core book, and once you have a working knowledge of the game, you can expand as you see fit.

  4. Thanks for the input, Harald! Much appreciated. I've loved the idea of Mage since the early days of the Ascension game. But I've never been able to get a game of it off the ground. Maybe someday soon I will be able to fulfill that long-awaited desire!
