This book is a valiant attempt at advancing the metaplot post M20 in ways that provide interesting avenues for play. The book posits that after some down time, the Traditions are attempting to reform some sort of at least semi-centralized entity to coordinate activities and disseminate information. The book posits a few ways this could be done and a cast of characters that could make it possible. It's $6.00, includes art, and is a good length all things considered.

Notable:

  • A novel Technocrat theory is advanced that the Traditions are necessary as a kind of escape valve for loonies lest they turn into more troublesome elements such as the Nephandi or the Marauders
  • Not only do you get characters you also get organizations which can sometimes prove difficult to invent.
  • There's simply a fat character. Mage seemingly has none of those.

I wish:

  • I wish there were proper modules/adventures/scenes. This is more of a future-facing desire as I don't expect something this brief to have full write-ups.

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.
