    Default Modern Magic Mysteries: the Arcane in a Fallen World (MtA 2e)

    Ok so a very long title for a very short request. Does anybody want to run a 2nd edition Mage the Awakening game? I just recently got the book and am in love. Looking to play an Acanthus with a primary focus in Time and Space.

    I'm intersted.

    Gonna play a Thyrus Mystagogue. (Would play Moros Libertine, but I lost a bet).

    Strong focus on Magic Is Alive, going either for a custom Legacy or Eyes of Ain Soph, may or may not go full Master of Tomes depending on party composition. Mostly focused on Life/Prime.

    I CARE. I care, and every goddamn person in the world should care, because it's objectification of a sentient being. It doesn't matter that the sentient being in question is a fictional species, it's saying that it's OK for people who look funny to be labeled as Evil by default.

    I'm not familiar with Eyes of Ain Soph, did the devs finally release more Legacies on their blog?

    Also interested.

    Idk if they're out with a new version, but Eyes of Ain Soph is originally from the Mysterium sourcebook

    I'm definitely interested in this!

    I'll wait and see if we find an ST and a game concept before I come up with a character idea.
    Red Sun: a D&D 5e setting based on DC comics!

    Red Sun Redux: a revised and revamped version that includes the new content released since the first version of the setting.

    Thus the issue, there seems to be a distinct lack of STs in the thread

    Cross-posted to the Onyx Path Publishing forums. Unfortunately I can't post links because I'm a new user...but Google Onyx Path Publishing forums --> "Conventions, Gatherings, and Online Play" --> "Play by Post" for more details.

    Hi everyone!

    I have been a longtime fan of the NWoD, and now CoD, games. One of my favorite games was a 2-year running VtR story, in which I played a washed-up musician that I meant to become a Daeva, but another Nosferatu PC Embraced instead. His gradual downward spiral into a hate-filled master of Nightmare allowed me to grapple with so many awesome conflicts and dilemmas through role play, mostly focusing on what it means to be human (or inhuman). I am also a veteran player of D&D (3.5 and 4E, still haven't had the chance to play 5); an old Hunter: the Reckoning game; and Mutants & Masterminds 3E. I'm currently playing in 2 PbP M&M games and will soon be a villain guest star in another.

    However, due to work and other real life obligations, I have had limited opportunity to play in person or real-time online games for the past 2 years. With the release of Mage: the Awakening 2nd edition, I am dying to play another CoD game.

    I personally would prefer to play in a MTAw PbP game. However, I can definitely see from other posts that there seems to be a distinct lack of STs advertising to run Mage games. I have run a brief MTAw 1E game for 2 other friends and had a blast, so although I'm certainly not the most experienced GM out there, I would be willing to run a game if it meant having the chance to sink my teeth into this game.

    If anyone out there would be more excited to ST a game for this, please say so! Otherwise, if you would like to play in a game that I run (and would be willing to be patient with a relatively newer GM), let me know about that too.

    As a heads up, my background in success with M&M PbP games has shown me that my preferred method for recruitment is for me to post a brief story and setting overview, collect character concept submissions and review them with players, and then select 4-6 players whose concepts I think would work best with each other. I would most likely set the game surrounding the time the PCs Awaken, either immediately before or after (depending on interest and PC preference).

    As for RPing the Awakening... I am hesitantly good with that idea. My only worry is that in 2e Awakenings aren't as simple as just something in your mind triggering and sending you to a Supernal Realm. It's a long drawn out quest rooted in Obsession. While it is possible to RP this, I worry it would take a bit too much time and detract from the bit most people want to get to which is using magic in clever ways

    Wow, that was fast! Glad to know there are a number of people out there excited about this. Yeah, I can try to ST, I think we would all rather have a more fledgling/intermediate ST and actually get to play than wait for someone who is an "expert" but never comes around.

    I'll see if I can message the link to each of you, but I'll be using the OPP forums for recruitment and actually playing. I personally like the layout there more and prefer to play on the forums for the company that develops these games. Or maybe someone else can post the link? Sorry...

    That is the direction I'm leaning in, too. My preference is for people to pitch s character concept, which includes their description of how they Awakened. But if enough people want it to happen "on screen," I would be down for that too.

    As for city, I would probably prefer to pick a town I'm actually relatively familiar with from personal experience and add Mysteries and drama to it. I'm leaning towards a Chicago suburb. The London description sounds awesome but I know very, very little about British culture or London geography.

    Chicago works, especially if you're drawing on your own experience. And letting people backstory their Awakening is probably for the best.

    No worries! I know some people love these forums here, and I can relate to frustrations about creating an account on a new forum. ;)

    Oh, and for what it's worth, I'll probably be doing recruitment for the next week or so unless I get a ton of responses very quickly. So no worries if you can't do it today.
