    Just to let people know that for the next 6 and a bit days you can get a bunch of books for 5th Ed Ars Magica. This Bundle seems to be selling like hot cakes with nearly 300 in under 5 hours. I’ve not played this but I have heard a little audio from Ars Magica although I’m not sure what edition it was from. I am certainly looking forward to reading the books.

    Atlas Games made 4th edition freely avaliable a few years ago prior to 5th ed coming out.

     

    I need to check behind the sofa and see what cash I can scrounge….

    Ditto I’ve always wanted to explore the magic system in this game. I was told to look into it if I wanted something a bit different.

    Ars Magica has a great system for magic – the only issues I ever had running the game was that a lot of what the players actually want to do is in downtime and not actually doing a great deal else… which surprisingly is actually kind of true to the theme of the game 🙂

    Like playing an all-wizard party in Pendragon? 

     

    The 4th ed rules recommend giving it a go using a troupe format so everyone takes a major character and then one minor character associated with someone elses major character.  Sounds a little over-complicated but I would really like to give that a go at some point.  Hopefully it would prevent everyone from just focusing on making golems and grimoires in their towers.

     

    And to pre-empt @[member=”Pencil-Monkey”] :-
