Not a long post today, because I have received my PDF from the Mage 20th Anniversary Edition Kickstarter. I have loved Mage: The Ascension for over 15 years, and now I have a brand new, full-color, 689-page beast of a rulebook to read through. I anticipate a lot of time spent figuring out paradigms and rotes, factions and Paradox. I plan to run this game again for the first time in nearly a decade, and this book is going to be a sweet engine for it.

But why, in the name of the dark masters of the Nephandi, did they have to put the damn "k" back on the end of magic?

Well, my first crate arrived today, and I thought I'd go through it here on the blog.
