Banishing Hope


What happens when Awakenings fail? For most Sleepers, nothing at all. They continue on about their lives, never even remembering how close they came to seeing the Supernal Truths. Local Pentacle mages might keep their eye on Sleepers who failed to Awaken, but there is usually little need for interference.

What happens when a Sleeper is forced to Awaken? Nothing good, and in most cases, the mages forced to go through Awakenings become Banishers. It’s a miracle, then, that the nine mages that Awakened before the events of Fragile Glass did so successfully and without complication.

Truly a miracle.

Like Fragile Glass (from the same author), Banishing Hope is a great and faithful story for Mage : the Awakening. Interesting plot, interesting NPCs. Clear writing. The author knows how to handle this wonderful (and complex) game. Please do more [...]

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.
