About the adventure

Magic is simply science that the masses don't understand. But you do. As a member of the Technocracy, you wield technology like a wizard would a wand, making magic that appears almost like what common folk would think of as normal. Yet, if they look too close, they'll realize the truth, that you've bent reality with your doodads and gizmos. When that happens, Paradox is right around the corner. And no one likes a Paradox. Mage the Ascension puts you in the shoes of a modern-day magician! But one that uses technology to make the magic happen. The game is roleplay heavy, with exploration around every corner, and combat always a potential solution.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You will need a microphone and several 10-sided dice. Webcams are welcome, but are not required. Prior knowledge of the rules of the game is not necessary, though you are welcome to create a character if you do know how the system works. Because we will be using Discord for talking, you will need a computer that has a connection to the internet, and either a web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, etc.) or the Discord app. You can, instead, use the Discord app on your phone if you choose.

What I provide

I will bring you a fun and exciting story to experience as you interact with the hidden magic of the world around you. I have pregenerated characters, complete with artwork to help you visual the character you choose, as well as those your fellow players select.

Gameplay details

Any parts of the game that cause discomfort for any player will be immediately dealt with. X cards can be raised via private message, or by holding it up on screen. Previously selected triggers will be removed from the game, if they were included to begin with, so as to not upset any of the players.

How will character creation work

Pregenerated characters will be available for players to select for the game, covering many roles that would be expected in a group of Technocracy mages. If you have a Technocracy mage from a previous game, you are welcome to use them instead!
