From the campaign:
Twenty years ago, a game came along that changed gaming. It was big and epic and confusing as hell. It dared folks to think outside the box – to not simply throw fireballs but to really think about how and why we do the things we do. Mage challenged people to make a difference in their world. And now, more than ever, that challenge stands.
Against the epic tapestry of an Ascension War, Mage: The Ascension, then and now, features architects of reality locked in a deadly fight to see whose future will prevail.
But within that sometimes cosmic scope, Mage asks an intimate question: If you had the power of a god, what would you do with it… and what would IT do with YOU?
