Alright, so before singing praises hoping for a discount:
- this book is a deep-dive into a very specific paradigm tied to a ready-made character and might feel less useful if you're not gonna use norse magick.
Now to praise:
I can work with this. Even if I wasn't planning on a setting/chronicle/character who was into norse magick, this is a great resource for how to tie things together when fleshing out a magick-user, developing their paradigm and deciding on practices and tools.
Because that's the thing when your new player asks about Mage. Inevitably, you're going to have to give them The Talk, and - me being a better ST than a pedagogue - just the neat little summary on page 9-10 helps a lot with that. I'm pretty confident I could toss this book at any of my new players, and it would clear up a metric ton of questions about how to go about detailing their own character's paradigm, practices and instruments.
All in all a well-spent 3 bucks.
Also, bonus points from a Swedish guy for being a book about things "norse" and not starting with "The Vikings..."
Good work, and here's hoping for more of these.
