    The stuff you could do with a creative imagination and an oWoD mage, oh man. The Life sphere has so much potential fucked-upness it's crazy. Did they manage to capture the same thing in nWoD? A lot of the stuff in Vampire and Werewolf needed a reboot, but Mage seemed to be the one thing they had almost if not quite perfect in oWoD.

    So what you're saying is that, in a fight with a werewolf, you just have to stall until it dies of natural causes.

    The trick is the technocracy looks specifically for people who do that. The greedy ones are really easy to catch; and interfering with probability is something that dangerous reality deviants do.

    Yes, this is true. And as for the Technocracy, they are only as dangerous as your Story Teller makes them; just like anything else. But they are an opposing faction of mages with the home field advantage.

    As a GM, marauders gave you a chance to take a break from the ordinary game and just do whatever the fuck you wanted for a session. Really great idea on White Wolf's part. Want to put your players in a 1920s era noir story? Toss a marauder in as the sexy dame!

    well if there is a way to make a mage online game work, it would probably be on this forum. it's about the only place i've ever seen online where games can actually last to completion.

    Goons have a couple scripts set up in an IRC room for Awakening games

    Just dice rolls and shit

    All the OOC is done in one room, all the RPing is done in the other

    Works pretty well

    I'd be up for this if someone wanted to run it, just have to redo my Mage character since the guys I played with before had a fucked up chargen

    There's an ongoing Mage game in CF, you know.


    I'm not familiar with Old Mage, but New Mage allows for quite a lot of stuff. I love the different factions especially.

    And Hunters are not all that hardcore. They're deadly, but when it all comes down to it, they're heavily armed mortals. One solid blow and it's over.

    There's a NWOD game set in the old west being run around here. I haven't checked it out yet, but it sounds interesting.

    mcc tried running a Mage game on IRC with forumers a looooooong time ago. We got a few sessions done before half the people stopped showing up, and a couple more before it was decided it was impossible to get enough people together at the same time to play.

    It was fun while it lasted...

    irc games are more fun and allow for a more structured game, i think, but you'll have more issues with people showing up versus a play-by-post game.
