Lost Paths: Ahl-i-Batin and Taftâni is the sourcebook for the Ahl-i-Batin and Taftâni, two of the hidden Traditions in Mage: The Ascension.


From the White Wolf catalog:

Masters of Subtlety
Hidden in the center of complex designs are magicians who've seen the rise and fall of empires. The mysterious Ahl-i-Batin skirt the edges of magical society, tugging at the strings of politics and religion to open consciousness toward a unity of all people. The stubborn Taftâni refuse to give up their blatant magic in the face of increasingly hostile realities. Two siblings, opposite in nature, both desperate to survive in a world that has since passed them by — or will they rise like a sudden sandstorm to consume their foes and return to prominence? Now that the Reckoning has come, they must make their last stand.
And Weavers of Wonder
A dual-sized book covers the joint history of the Middle East's native mages, then explores their separate traditions, enchantments and allies. Learn the Batini's courtly graces and see the Taftâni's outrageous displays. Explore the Web of Faith and sup with the djinn.
