Secrets of the Ruined Temple is a sourcebook for Mage: The Awakening. The book delves into Atlantean myths, theories, and ancient ruins of Atlantean mages.


From the Onyx Path catalog:

Some things are best left forgotten. But why should that hold us back?
The ancients hoarded their magic and sealed it in secret redoubts, hidden from Sleepers and the debased spells of our age. The lords of these storehouses are long gone, but their enchantments remain, enigmas to confound us, their heirs in magic. In some of these places, the guardians charged with their protection still wait, ready to destroy interlopers.
But I have a map, and I know certain secrets.
Are you with me?
— Athos, Mysterium explorer
Some Things Are Best Left Forgotten
The exiles of Atlantis hoarded their artifacts in magically sealed and guarded redoubts, hidden from Sleepers and common spells. The masters of these storehouses are long gone, but their enchantments remain, enigmas to confound all who would seek them — but seek them some do. Mages obsessed with the power of the ancients scour the material and Shadow realms for these places, ignorant of the things that still guard them. Few of these explorers ever return.
