It seems like there used to be some nice PDFs on the net that were meants to introduce new players to the system and setting of Ars Magica.
Sadly, I can no longer remember what edition they were for, or if in fact I am insane and misremembering this.
That said, does anyone know of any Ars Magica 5th edition downloadable intros?
I think i know the ones you mean. Some adventures written for convention play by Mark Steedman (4th edition). I got them here if you can't find them on the web.
Ah, there we go. I didn't realize the 4th ed page was still about. Many thanks...
