This was the [[Year of the Reckoning]] book for '''[[Mage: The Ascension]]'''.
+
* This was the [[Year of the Reckoning]] book for [[Mage: The Ascension]].
  +
* This is the first Mage book to cease using the "magick" spelling, preferring "magic". Most people did not notice, as this was, after all, a book about the [[Technocracy]], who would not recognize the difference between magick and magic. The next book, ''[[Initiates of the Art]]'', presented the game from the point of view of the newly-Awakened, who also would not know the difference. This left only ''[[The Spirit Ways]]'' and ''[[Masters of the Art]]'' before ''[[Mage: The Ascension Revised Edition]]'' was released, at which point a special effort was made to point out the lack of "special k".
