What is Ars Magica 2nd Edition?

Ars Magica is a long-standing roleplaying game about magi in 13th century Europe. Explore mysteries and set off on adventure. Encounter mundane nobles and church higher-ups, faeries and demons. Perform powerful spells and learn new magical traditions.

Each of your stories will center on the covenant: the magi, their companions, and their Grog servants. You’ll get to play them all with Ars Magica’s unique troupe-style system. Your covenant is part mystical college, magical laboratory, Hermetic fortification, and bastion of secrecy.

Try Ars Magica and be prepared for a unique and compelling play experience.

Magic and Peril Await: Gameplay Basics

Ars Magica provides a unique fantasy roleplay experience with multiple characters and troupe-style play. Mechanics help streamline play so it’s not overwhelming to juggle it all.

This RPG features award-winning magic rules. Instead of a list of spells to choose from—and spend ages looking up in the manual—players create their desired effects on the spot. The result is a flexible yet simple system that keeps the focus where it should be—on the action.

Released in 1989, this edition of Ars Magica from Lion Rampant brought this groundbreaking, award-winning game to a wider audience with clarified and expanded rules and text, a color cover, and new artwork.

The 2nd edition of Ars Magica is currently out of print, but it is available in PDF.

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.
