Atlas Games (Fourth Edition)

http://www.atlas-games.com/

Atlas published a number of Ars Magica supplements while it was still owned by Lion Rampant, which are listed last. They bought the line in 1996 and subsequently published Ars Magica Fourth Edition and many other supplements; you can jump directly to these older supplements if you like.

There are also several supplements that were released as free PDFs online, which I have added to the list. You can download them from Atlas's web page by following the links.

Each of the following publications includes a rating on a scale of one to four stars, based on a given number of readers' feedback, and comments if they are available. If you'd like to add to the reviews, email the FAQ's maintainer.

AG0261 Ultima Thule: Mythic Scandinavia, by Paul Williams
FAQ Rating: ** (9 reviews; 1 *, 7 **, 1 ***, 0 ****)

  • Anachronistic, not needed for the line, but moderately useful if you're playing on the edges of Scandinavia or want to have a "Wild West" frontier Saga.
  • Yet another set of hedge magicians (sigh).
  • If you want Vikings, this is good vikings (bar minor anachronisms that probably increase the mythic feel).
  • Yet another book about the fringes of the Order, where the main player characters types aren't.
  • Offers a runic magic system that I don't care about and commits the most grievous "canonical" error I can think of: it deletes the Order of Odin from Mythic Europe. A mystical order that could have provided powerful opponents for the Hermetic Order, with whom they could interact (battle, trade, explore) without Hermetic Code restrictions, was lost with one (expletive deleted) sentence.
