ARS MAGICA HERMETIC PROJECTS PDF

Some games need a little extra something before they really click with you. The supplement, as the title implies, is an in-depth look at the subject of freeholds, including a detailed system for designing your own for your PCs to manage. Specifically, once you make sure to add in a freehold focus to your Changeling campaign, what you end up with is a sort of whimsical modern-day Ars Magica. Ars Magica is notable as being the RPG where reading books and undertaking extended crafting projects in downtime is given as much attention and can potentially be as much fun as actual adventuring. Savvy referees, of course, realise that the downtime action can feed into the adventuring and vice versa; being savvy publishers, Atlas Games have realised that whereas traditional RPGs call for traditional adventure scenarios, Ars Magica calls for scenarios based not just around immediate short-term adventures but also long-term projects and events. Hermetic ProjectsThis is essentially a compilation of extended examples of the sort of projects that can be accomplished using the main Order of Hermes magic system as presented in the core book; whilst additional options based on information on other supplements are presented here and there, it is entirely possible to accomplish any of the goals presented here — a covenant built inside an active volcano, a new Tower of Babel, a living corpse, a magic zoo, and more — simply using the core magic rules and the occasional bit of lateral thinking.

On reflection, medieval Ireland really is an obvious location to set an Ars Magica chronicle. Set against this is an influx of continental magi more connected to more mainstream interpretations of the Code of Hermes, riding the coattails of the English invasion and associated with the new ways the English are trying to impose on the realm. Will the newcomers respect the old ways — and the pacts underpinning them — or throw all into chaos?

Mythic Perspectives was an Ars Magica fanzine that came out between and One of the disadvantages of that is that it can be quite hard to get a really good overview of important subjects compiled with an eye to being gameable. This is subject matter which both has the potential to be rather dry and tends not to be the sort of thing that we tend to put front and centre when we think of medieval Europe, but I actually think that its slight obscurity is part of what makes this supplement of interesting.

It is true, of course, that following the fall of the Western Empire that much of Europe became much more rural and trade became much more sparse, but it is a massive oversimplification to take this assumption too far and including cities, trade, and guilds enriches a historical medieval setting.

Though there are some system bits provided in here if you really want a rigorous system for working out how many pots your potter makes in a season or whatever , a large part of the value of the supplement comes in its discussions of how guilds, cities, and the liked worked during the time period.

Whilst this is not a substitute for looking to more rigorous sources if you want to become an expert and a decent bibliography is provided if you want to read further , I think what Atlas have usefully done here is provide an introductory condensation of information with a specific focus on stuff which makes for good gaming material.

Ars Magica: Hermetic Projects

Hermetic Projects describes several long-running laboratory projects magi can undertake. The projects involve developing a series of related spells and enchanted items that all combine to enable some impressive feat. There are six projects described in detail, as well as a couple of pages on designing your own project [1]. The goal of the Burning City project is to build a covenant inside an active volcano [2]. The Intangible Assassin project develops an arsenal of spells with which to attack magi or other creatures with Magic Resistance from a distance using Arcane Connections [3]. As stated in the first paragraph of the chapter, the main purpose of the project is to be effective at waging Wizard War. This chapter also contains an overview of Wizard War that looks like it would be sufficient to play through such a conflict in your Saga, even if you don't have the other rule books that describe Wizard's War namely, Houses of Hermes: True Lineages and Houses of Hermes: Societates.
