Mage the Awakening 2nd Edition

The last of the "big 3" supernatural types has finally come to the Chroncles of Darkness line, Mage: The Awakening Second edition is certainly something I have found both enjoyable to read and, more importantly, play. For those not a fan of the direction that Chroncles of Darkness has taken with the Beat mechanics and subsystems may not find what they're looking for, those that have will find a wonderfully polished system and, important for Storytellers, a setting to work around with the cultures of the various Orders more flushed out, as well as a few setting locations to base games out of.


While not perfect (especially for those that strain against the tighter mechanics of Chroncles of Darkness), I find that this latest addition to the Chroncles of Darkness line well worth my time and money, and is the easily the best product Onyx Path has put out all year.

Shards of the Exalted Dream
Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing

After 2 years of a drought on Exalted products, with only Compass of Celestial Directions: Autocthonia and the recently released Masters of Jade, both very low on new mechanical aspects, Shards of Exalted Dreams finally gives a much needed injection of new mechanical aspects, and far more campaign ideas than both books combined. It was also more engaging to read, especially the first chapter. The new charms are well done, though the chapter Burn Legend is a near rewrite, and requires a lot more in analysis than I've had time to, but it's simple premise and approach appears to make it a great way to slide people into Exalted, rather than deal with the entire charm cascades of the various Exalts. This is a must-buy book, and hopefully a sign of improvement for the Exalted line.
