A Phoenix Rising


From Long Neglected Embers
The Council of Nine has not gathered for 24 years. In that time the world has grown strange and chaotic. For the first time in nearly a quarter century a Tradition Convocation is convening to not only gather the Council but to choose the primi who will shape the Traditions for generations to come. Not everyone welcomes a return to council law, and the Traditions’ choice of venue is nothing if not . . . daring. Will the Traditions rise from the ashes left after decades of neglect or is this nothing more than a final act of hubris and desperation?

A Phoenix Rises
Jumping off from the questions posed by the New Horizon Council story seeded in the Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition core book, A Phoenix Rising explores the relationship between the Traditions, the Disparate Alliance, and the Technocratic Union in a world where defining paradigm is more complicated than ever before. This chronicle jumpstart includes details on why the Traditions have chosen this moment to rebuild their fallen council, and looks at how the rest of the Awakened feel about their return. It includes nine player templates, two NPCs, and a variety of potential realities hiding behind the events unfolding in the Southwest’s City of Lights.

A Phoenix Rising is an scenario book for use with Mage the Ascension. Set in Vegas, this book takes a look at the election of a new Horizon Council. The book serves somewhat as a sourcebook and some like an adventure chronicle. The book provides 5 suggested scenarios each taking a different prospective on politics of new council. The book even suggests numerous starting sessions for each of the 5 scenarios. The Tabletop Gaming Club took the time to play threw all the scenarios using the pregenerated characters provided, and had numerous weeks of enjoyment. The Tabletop Gaming Club recommends this book to all storytellers looking for jumping off point to a new chronicle.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
