    A novella was unlocked in the Technocracy Reloaded Kickstarter when it hit $162,000. At $167,000 in funding, a second novella will be unlocked.

    About $3000 more to that second novella as of this post. The novella is at any PDF reward level, so that's $30 U.S. pledge to get the novella and Technocracy Reloaded and all the Companion book giving you a lot of Mage story options.

    The Kickstarter finishes on May 28--you can still get it on it or up your pledge.

    The Fragile Path is very interesting and good for giving some history of the Traditions--you have stories and even songs (for Bernadette from the Celestial Chorus).

      I’m a few stories in, not nearly finished. So far it’s pretty trippy, and the authors have done a good job of avoiding game jargon and instead focusing on the subjective experiences of the focus characters, who don’t always have a context for what’s going on. Hell, I don’t always have a context for what’s going on, which is fine because they’re stories first and game-related materials second. We’ll see how the rest of it goes.

        I hope it's OK to revive this with a new question.

        I once saw an excerpt from some novel. A Mage, seems to be newly Awakened, hangs himself from Yggdrasil. Some spirit, maybe Ratatosk or a bird, is giving him an overview of the cosmos, Norse-style. Yggdrasil = the whole Tellurian, Mid-Garth = the material world, I think Alfheim and Nidavellir and Svartalfheim are the Dreaming, Nifhlheim = the Underworld, and so on.

        Was this part of a Mage novel? Which one? Is it good?

          Well apparently that was from Dead Magic II. That's not a book of stories, is it?

            No, it is a book about ancient magic styles/cultures (Ancient Magics would've been a better title IMO). The first book talked about Greco-Roman, Aztec/Incan, Babylonian, and ... I'm blanking on what else. Part two was Norse, Celtic/European shamanism, Polynesian, Australian, Innuit, and Indian/Vedic stuff IIRC.

              You might want to check out the two short stories that precede it in Truth Until Paradox(Silver Nutmeg, Golden Pear and Grim Reminders) as well.
              The fact that we never got a sequel is fucking criminal

                For a new Penny Dreadfull Novel I would focus on this. Penny is essentially the mother figure of the two kids she babysits who both happen to be Kinfolk. In the Modern day the girl breeds true and becomes Garou whilst the boy joins the Verbena as a hedge druid and eventualy awakens. It's not much but it's a start. Also do we want Penny to look her age (she's in her late 40s early 50s now) or does she still look young for one reason or another?

                  Please do not use the word retarded that way. It is a dehumanizing slur against disabled people.

                        Also, I freely admit Penny Dreadful is my WOD waifu and am down with middle aged mom Goth.

                        ...

                        Okay, way TMI.
