Mage: the Ascension v.2?
I am seeking advice for and trying to gauge interest in a game of Mage using the second edition rules.

I would prefer experienced Mage players, but I am willing to run a game that begins with everyone Awakening for players unfamiliar with the setting.

The game would probably be set in Southern California, since I live there.  The game would also be very player-driven, since I can't come up with plots to save my life.

Is this a really rotten idea?

I am always interested in a mage game, although I would drastically prefer M20.

In reply to PCO.Spvnky (msg # 2):

Alas, I don't have the cash to get the 20th Anniversary edition of Mage.  I know that 3rd Edition was massively screwed up, too.  I'm afraid to look at 20th Anniversary.

If it helps, I ran Amber Diceless for 8 years, long ago.  Ever since, I've gone light on dice and written mechanics.

Hmm, not enough interest to be worth it.  Darn.

Mage: the Ascension v.2?
I played in a Mage Awakening game a long time ago (character was a P.I. type with an affinity for entropic magic [locks aren't locked/won't stay locked, power goes out taking down the security systems, guns jam/misfire, floorboard breaks when enemy steps on it] ), since then the White Wolf/World of Darkness stuff has been limited to Scion (1st ed), Exalted (not really to my liking), Vampire Masquerade, and not much of it at that.  I'm also currently in an Amber game here...

Depending on how you set it up, I might be interested in one of those... don't really have time to get up to speed with Mage Ascension right now.
