I have never had a chance to play Ars Magica, but have owned the game from second to fifth edition for years. I just never found anyone who played in my area. I am mature, but young at heart, and like a serious game that focuses on story and drama.However, I like a good dose of combat and don't take gaming too seriously (I save that for the advanced squad leader tournaments ). I don't like petty arguing and other nonsense that erodes the group and the enjoyment of the game for others. I am comfortable with both playing and storytelling.
Please feel free to respond to this post.
Thanks for reading.
