Description:

The 1940s began and ended with war. The war that opened the decade was fought with bombs and guns, and ended with a weapon more powerful and horrific than anything the world has seen. In the meantime, the citizens of the United States rebuild their society. The war didn't touch the country directly, as it did Europe, but the losses were palpable all the same. Millions of American men went to war, and thousands upon thousands did not return. Many that did returned changed and haunted, and the music and Hollywood glamour of the rest of the decade could not drown out those nightmares.

Would this new Fallen World have a place for mages, or had Sleepers outgrown any chance of Awakening?

This book includes:

• A brief historical look at America in the 1940s, from a mage's perspective.

• Player and Storyteller advice on chronicles set in this time period.

• A Storytelling Adventure System story set in the 1940s, complete with a pre-generated cabal.

• A new legacy: the Quiescent.

Mage Noir is a supplement for the World of Darkness game Mage: the Awakening.


Note: The Black & White print editions of this book are not full-bleed. Because of printing requirements there is a small white border around the edge of the pages.

Mage Noir takes the mages of World of Darkness into the America of the postwar era in the US, a period of moral grays, the era of noir. Playing to mood and tone is one of the strengths of the World of Darkness and the noir era is full of such shadows [...]

This is the second time White Wolf has attempted a roleplaying supplement centered around a time period within living memory for the New World of Darkness. Like with New Wave Requiem I was excited to check it out even though I didn't actively play the [...]

A fantastic exploration of both the modern history of the Awakened (via the book's coverage of the 1940s) and of setting elements and themes that really drive home the noir elements for a mage game. Like "New Wave Requiem" (covering Vampire for the 1980s) [...]

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.
