Just prior to heading out this morning, FedEx delivered a pretty special parcel. My copy of the Mage20 Technocracy Reloaded hardcover book has arrived.
If there is one game that I would dearly love to play – preferably to run as the Storyteller – before I finally leave this life, Mage is that game. It’s hard to explain the impact this game had upon me as a younger man, suffice to say that the presentation of the world of Mage resonated with me in a deep way.
Technocracy Reloaded peels back the curtain and examines the role of the Technocracy in Mage: The Ascension 20th Anniversary Edition.
Technocracy Reloaded provides tools and resources to equip and portray the Technocratic Union as antagonists in a Mage 20 game, or to allow the players to step into the role of Technocrats, with the full support of the Union and its immeasurable resources at their fingertips.Kickstarter page: M20 Technocracy Reloaded
For me, this was the missing piece of the puzzle that unlocks my ability to finally bring this game to the table. I have long and deeply enjoyed the Technocrats and their role as villains but now options abound, with many possible future fates laid open for exploration.
I know this is a game that needs just the right bunch of players. It needs me to absorb and understand myriad resources, but I am finally on the precipice of bringing myself to the Ascension Wars. I don’t know when or who but I do know that I love this vision of the fantastic World of Darkness.
