Very pretty book that holds together well as a pdf copy. Pushes the Mage game fully in the direction of a full on, high fallutin', kitchen-sink fantasy with Renaissance Europe merely as a convenient historical backdrop. Of interest to anyone who found the Mage game a wild and engrossing read (this book is made up of it!), although it's a little inconsistent and ahistorical to be a true classic in my view - and it's not entirely complete as a standalone game (really more of an advanced supplement to the uninitiated).
[4 of 5 Stars!]
