My name is wagner and i'm from Brazil.
Right now i'm doing some research to start a saga, and i have lots of questions. I hope you excuse my bad english and help me =)
First question: is the 4th edition wizard's grimoarie of any help on 5th edition?
When Hedge magic, revised edition will be released? (couldn't find any help on this on the forum =/)
The core points:
I'm planing to start a saga using the 5th edition, but i encontered some problems:
The first plan was to have the covenant located in Val du Bosque, but after talking with the players we decided to move to a more remote and wild location, one with more traces of paganism and faeries... Since i have the Lion of the North book i decided to move the future covenant to the Loch Leglean Tribunal.
What changed in that Tribunal from 3rd edition to 5th edition?
Since i'm pretty busy with work i decided to use some old adventures for this saga. I was thinking to use the Twelfth Night, the Midsummer's night dream and the tempest (if i could find this last one with good price for sale) as base and the broken covenant of cabelais, the pact of pasaquine and the dead legacy in middle of it...
The covenant will have a merenita (faeri upbring), a bonisagus, a verditius ("tresure hunter") and a bjornaer.
What do you think of the choices i made for adventures? I was thinking in the merenita on the Midsummer night dream to be the teacher of the merenita magus. i though that the the Twelfth Night and the Broken covenat of cabelais would be very interisting adventures for the verditius. I am still thinking in some things for the bjornaer and the bonisagus, any sugestions?
Their covenant will be the Lux ex Tenebris from the Twelfth Night. Any sugestions on how to convert this one to 5th edition?
How do i convert the statitics of those old adventures do 5th edition? any warnings or advises on doing this?
Is there some good detalied location, like Val du Bosque, with maps and such for this tribunal? Any sugestions for locations?
I couldn't find much information about the hibernia tribunal (is there a book of it?) And isn't very clear for me the relations of the Loch Leglean tribunal and the Stnohenge tribunal? should i have the Heirs to Merlin to?
I have planty of ideas for after the caracters made the gauntled, but how do i make the prelude before it? any advises?
I have played Ars magica sometimes, but never as SG. I have some books, someothers are burrowed from friends and some a player will bring from US next weekend.
well... i'm waiting for replys =)
PS: It is a shame that the portuguese version of the 4th edition of Ars Magica is the worst RPG translation of all times with hundreds of mistakes... and that no one has the intention to publish the 5th edition in portuguese =/
