I never ran a chronicle in either Ascension or Awakening (but in many other WoD lines). Now I plan a Mage chronicle and used this translation guide for deciding, which variant (old or new Mage) I should choose. While some of the rules conversions seem rather strange, I think that's normal for conversions and actually for my aim, the book was very helpful, as it summed up the key differences between Ascension and Awakening. I would buy it again.
