Twenty Years and Counting...

Add the Traditions in your Awakening game, or bring the ten Arcana to Mage: The Ascension. Pit the Seers of the Throne against the Technocracy for dominion over the world, and let your Nephandi call forth the Abyss.  This guide will help you translate the feel and core elements from each version of Mage into the other's game system and background, or combine them into a unique cosmos for the Awakened. 

The Journey Continues

Mage Translation Guide includes:

  • Translations of all of the orders, Ministries, Traditions, and Conventions between versions of Mage
  • Conversions for the magic and Paradox rules between systems 
  • Guidelines for converting spells between systems

A copy of Mage: The Ascension Revised edition, the World of Darkness Rulebook, and Mage: The Awakening are all recommended for use with this product.

Note on the Print Editions: Standard Color uses a thinner paper stock than Premium Color, basically the same paper as the Black & White books. This usually means the colors are less vivid, but it also means the price drops a bit per page in the production process. Examples of pages: Premium Color vs. Standard Color.

Translateing between 1st and 2nd edition is pretty easy, but I would expect and merit conversions to be a bit unbalanced between editions.

Format

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
