The Hallean Effect


Introducing the Hollow Earth chronicle for Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition, this is the first story that will hint to characters about a previously lost world.

Lands and Legends Lost in Time

Mythology and fantasy are systematically pushed further and further into the reaches of dreams and subconscious. They thrive in their new homes and wait to be rediscovered by true believers. Other legends, however, are deemed too strange or too fantastic to be given any credibility at all. Those stories fall into the depths of the Earth, presumably to be discredited and ridiculed forever.

Atlantis.   Eldorado.   Shang-ri La.

The Lost Legends Accept Their Fate

Exiled from the world and dreamers, the banished persevered in their new home and found their own purpose. Humanity continued to unknowingly help. Denial and banality separated, bound, and protected the rejected legends. The Rejected thrived without the outside interference. Some have developed into new incarnations, and others retain their ancient glory.


Yet, none harbor any love for the surface empires, and they resent their intrusions.


The Hallean Effect presents a cabal of mages who discover the dangers of blindly wandering into a part of the world that no longer wants to be found.

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.
