    Holy crap. I dont play the game admittedly, but damn I do want to learn about Mage

    Where was this announced?

    EDIT: nevermind I found it. Bit sad no Promethean or Beast stuff was put up.

    Anyway, 212 pages! I look most forward to the Guardians of the Veil and Free Council.

        Damn. Player group is currently doing Awakening, but I doubt we will when this book comes out. Still, very excited for another Mage book.

            I wonder if this is going to be the Requiem-clanbook-style game fiction scrapbook Dave B. always wanted the line to field. Let's find out together, in the future.

              Nah.

              So, Tome is the first of the two books that were in the hidden pre-first draft Developer workload when I resigned; It had been accepted by WW, and had a maybe 1/3 finished outline which Meghan took and finished now she's in charge. I spoke about it at GenCon when it was first announced; it's more like Awakening's versions of Guide to the Traditions and/or Damnation City.

              Those fiction scrapbooks are hella expensive to produce and murder on the art direction team. I can't see one happening for any CofD line in the foreseeable future.

                I want this so bad! Any resource to build my setting relly makes my inspiration juices run. I am imagining a dough like sanctum and sigils crossed with damnation city filling with a lot of pentacle thrown in to spice things up!

                      Waiting for this book is going to drive me mad. Is there a good estimate as to the time between first draft and final product, so I can stop being anxious about it?

                        I may be jaded by how MtAw 2E gameline was produced to this day - but I say... two years? When we had MtAw 2E corebook in 2015 and Signs of Sorcery - announced right away after corebook - in 2019, I say those are optimistic approximations,

                        Till we get Tome of Pentacle, I stick to simply run Scion 2E - as I found it has A LOT of common elements with MtAw - and is normally produced, two books a year now.


                        My stuff for Realms of Pugmire, Scion 2E, CoD Contagion, Dark Eras, VtR 2E, WtF 2E, MtAw 2E, MtC 2E & BtP
