I've read and loved Ars Magica since the '90s but I really played not as much as I loved to.
Now it seems that I may start something again...and I got a question on the "Affinity" virtues (both types, abilities and arts, as described on core rules page 40).
I've always thought that the Affinity virtues apply only to character creation...but is it correct?
And is it fair?
During creation I can apply them, but I can create characters of any age...
If so, why shouldn't they work later on during play?
Thank you in advance, if you can answer me!
