White Wolf Wiki

Dead Magic is a supplement for Mage: The Ascension Revised Edition.


From the White Wolf catalog:

Centuries of Magic
Civilizations rise and fall across seas of time. Along the way, each culture fosters its own mystic traditions. When mages of the present look for answers in the past, they lay bare the most terrifying – and potent – of humanity's superstitions. Such magics were forbidden even in the brutal cultures of ages gone; what terrible secrets do they hold for mages today?
Millenia of Horror
From the early days of civilization in Mesopotamia and Africa, to the philosophies of Greece and Rome and the mysteries of Central America, Dead Magic explores the mystic heritage of lost civilizations around the world. This is no travel guide for mages, though – these were cultures that practiced terrible, blood-drenched rites and consciousness-shattering rituals. Unearth these secrets and hope that you survive.
Dead Magic includes:
  • Modern applications of the magic of ancient cultures
  • Creatures and plot ideas for Storytellers
  • Powerful new spells, including the formula for lichedom.
