  • Yesterday, one of my players asked me: Why Ethiopia and not another country?

    And I said: Because in 1460 Ethiopia is at the end of its Golden Age. It is a period full of interesting opportunities. It is also a very interesting place for a Sorcerer's Crusade game, as a crossroad between Asia, Africa and Europe (dispate its location in the Horn of Africa). I have also thought about setting a game in the Ottoman Empire, but I think I'm going to keep that for Victorian Age: Mage.

  • I think a book like this would useful even for players of Vampire and Werewolf.

    In my experience, they are the games easier to get into... and lots of players tend to enter them with the full baggage of popular myths and beliefs about 'how easy is to play a Vampire', etc... Something which, in the end and in some cases, makes it as difficult to play them as to play the other, 'harder' games....

  • Thanks for your quick reply.

    Some details:
    The mages in Ethiopia 1460 (the setting needs a better name, this is just a placeholder) are going to be split, broadly speaking, in three groups, according to their religion: Christians, Muslims and Outsiders (Jews and Pagans).

    Currently, Jews are being actively discriminated and even persecuted by the Empire, and most of them have migrated to the north-western provinces and the Kingdom of Semien, in more-or-less open rebellion against the Emperor. Pagans, on the other hand, are thought to have been completely destroyed...

  • Ideas on African Mages? (M:tSC / M20 game set in 1460 CE in Ethiopia)

    Hello there. I'm writing a (brief) setting for Mage: the Sorcerer's Crusade. Player characters will be in Ethiopia in 1460.

    In addition to the usual M:tSC groups I want to include some new African socities, ideologies, groups, etc... I would like to include some other mages beyond the Ngoma and the Madzimbabwe.

    I have quite a stack of books to peruse (I have almost all the White Wolf / Onyx Path books ever published), but page and chapter references are always welcome.

    So far so good:
    I'm building a group of Ethiopian mages, called the Disciples of...

  • Hello there, Saint Michael, long time no see.

    Where do you want to upload the Lords of Nightmare files and why isn't Onyx Path letting you? Anyhow, I'm thinking of uploading the whole project, when it is finished, to the Storyteller's Vault, so maybe it wouldn't be a good idea to upload it anywhere...

    For news on Lords of Nightmare, please consult the Facebook group. Sorry about real life kicking me in the face.
