If your looking for ways to get other people into Mage this is a great guide. There are several bits of information given on how to "trim" down alot of the content and still keep the heart of Mage beating. I recommend picking this up if your wanting to run a mage game thats lite on metaplot and gives more of a focus to the "style" of magic that your wanting to portray without worry over picking the right Tradition. Theres plenty of other options for handling paradox, seekings, the avatar/genius, and more but ill leave that to you to discover for yourself!!
