Ars Magica

I've played two sessions of Ars Magica -- way back, as a break from the Rolemaster campaign I was running for friends then. It must have been around '99 I think. One of my friends was the GM, and unfortunately it never went anywhere due to various factors -- such as these things go.
Later, in 2003, Atlas Games released the fourth edition of Ars Magica as a free PDF and announced a fifth edition. And last week, the Bundle of Holding featured a lot of supplements for the fourth edition. Last Friday (the last day of the Bundle), I asked this friend (who is also a colleague) about his Ars Magica campaign, and he said that there was still something kicking around in the back of his head. I pointed him to the Bundle, and offered to bind anything he would print from the Bundle (like I did with the extra copy of Golden Sky Stories).

Interesting enough, he then started making excuses as to why the campaign would never take off. He would need players -- but I'm sure that can be arranged! I volunteered immediately.
Making characters and a convent is like homework -- but that's part of the charm of the game, so that wouldn't be a problem!

I really hope he finds some inspiration and the time to pull things together. I even found out I own a copy of the fifth edition rules: it must have been a part of a lot from rupertdaily's RPG book inheritance that I won at the auction.
