Mage the Ascension

Let me start this by saying, I love this game, I hate this game.  If you have never played, do yourself a favor and give it a shot.  If you have played, you probably have some idea of what I'm saying.  If you have run this game, join me at the bar, I've got the first round of scotch already poured.

In this particular game, I've got the following:

A Verbana who's day job is a nurse in the cardiac ward of the local hospital.

A Cultist of Ecstasy who spends his time competing in on-line gaming.

A Virtual Adept who teaches chemistry at the local university.

An Akashic Brotherhood who works as a well-known motivational speaker.

A Dreamspeaker who is a librarian at the local public library.

I love watching their thoughts develop as they explain how the different magics work within their paradigm.  There is much enjoyment stemming from the fact that none of them have any clue about how the World of Darkness works or how this game's mechanics work.  It should be quite a fun ride as they begin to experience things that are way outside the norm.
