A Practical Guide

Mage: The Ascension’s flexible and ambitious Sphere system has provided many questions and debates for over 20 years. Here, now, in this book, we answer the eternal question How Do You DO That? with hundreds of reality-altering feats – puppetry and possession, elemental command, martial arts prowess, illusions, and far, far more – all presented in simple, casual, and quite often profane English.  

For Metaphysical Mastery

Unlike any previous Mage sourcebook, How Do You DO That? strips away the series' trademark ambiguities and deals straight-up with the raw rule systems behind Mage's magick rules. Dividing a multitude of uncanny feats into 10 general categories, this book features rules for…

  • Conjuration & Transformation
  • Elemental Mastery
  • Energy Work
  • Enhanced Perceptions
  • Martial Arts
  • Mystic Travel
  • Necromancy
  • Summoning, Binding, Bargaining & Warding
  • Time Distortion & Travel
  • Uncanny Influence

Sphere magick will never be quite the same again...

Note on the Print Editions: Standard Color uses a thinner paper stock than Premium Color, basically the same paper as the Black & White books. This usually means the colors are less vivid, but it also means the price drops a bit per page in the production process. Examples of pages: Premium Color vs. Standard Color.

Technocracy ReloadedTechnocracy Reloaded

Welcome to the Future

As the third decade of the 21st century dawns, the Technocratic Union stands on the cutting edge of a future imperiled. As science and technology draw humanity closer than ever before, certain factions within the Masses display gross negligence, undermining the Union’s work and endangering the world for shortsighted gains. Despite global telecommunications, new frontiers in virtually every field of study, and an understanding of the universe only dreamed of by earlier generations, humanity faces threats on all sides.

Can You Save It?

Climate change threatens to destroy life as we know it. Religious fundamentalism breeds terror around the globe. Diseases, once eradicated in the developed world through vaccination, have returned due to antivaxxer movements. Totalitarian, nationalist governments rise as the Masses succumb to fear of the other. The world stands on the brink of destruction, and it is up to the agents and operatives of the Technocratic Union to save it…or be its ultimate destruction.

How much of this book relates to Technocrats? I play Technocratic characters/chronicles so I want to know how relevant the book is.

I realize this is meant for Classic World of Darkness/Mage, but I'm curious: would this be useful for a nWOD/CofD Mage as well?

Or either version of Mind's Eye Theater. I know some of the previous books put rules out that were like 'For tabletop, use Forces *** and Prime **, For MET use...', but myself and my ST are wondering if this one does the same?

Regards Candice: Without knowing the new system too well (or at all) I am assuming that it would be a matter of changing around terms and tweaking the rules to suit the current game / system.
From what I have read so far within the book, it is a lot of optional rules, different rotes / castings and information on various things which are mentioned in M20 (or even Technocracy guide) but go more in-depth with it all.
Even if you cannot use the exact rules for your current game, it is great for ideas with things your mage can cast and making your own rotes.

Justin: As I have said above, it is the same for MET. The book has more information on things that others more or less just barely touched on (Such as creating your own realm)
You would be using the same LARP rules from MET Mage, just having different source information and ideas.

I hope this helps a little.

Candice: No, this isn't really useful for nWoD or CofD game unless you're also using the Mage Translation Guide. or you're wanting to use this for ideas for some custom rotes for your local game.

nWoD completely changed the rule system and magic system from cWoD. Not just what spells do, but also how magic works.

in my opinion the system is worse then in MtAw. There are some nifty ideas, but in my opinion MtAw magic system is better.

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.
