The Book of Mirrors: Mage Storytellers Handbook is a support book for Storytellers running a Mage: The Ascension game.


From the White Wolf catalog:

"Wow! Cool Game!"
Mage: The Ascension takes place in an epic world loaded with dangers, intrigues and contradictions, a world where nothing is ever what it seems to be. Within the exotic realm of the Awakened, wizards plot, demons rise and reality itself shudders in pain and rapture.
"Now How Do I Run It?"
Intriguing as it may be, Mage offers the world-be Storyteller a host of challenges. Fortunately, help is now at hand. This essential yet informal tome includes Storytelling advice, a developer's F.A.Q., secrets of the Ascension War, and many other enlightening goodies, like...
  • A step-by-step chronicle history;
  • A comprehensive index to Mage books, rules and magicks;
  • Systems and suggestions for animals, shapeshifting, alternate settings and more.
