ASHES OF THE MAGI
Kindle hope by awakening to the apocalypse.
An experience in esoteric story creation.
Do you wish to wake up here?
A broken world cries out in agony. You can always choose to ignore the cries.
FROM AN APOCALYPTIC WOMB
The magic of the Day of Wrath overwhelmed you.
Myriad energies interpenetrated and split you apart.
Your Psyche, Pneuma, and Soma re-embody into the temporal.
All around you, the pain of a World of Ashes.
Fog shrouds landscape, your memories, and your future.
But you can sense the Weave of Fate.
You can also sense the Dread and Horror within the weave.
Shadows of Despair, Apathy and Cruelty pervade the realm.
Surely, you can do something about it.
YOUR STORY BEGINS
Ashes of the Magi build stories from the middle out of a blank journal.
Your character sheet acts as your book mark in the threads of story.
You follow story threads into the future to envision goals and prevent threats.
You follow story threads into the past to recover your ways and heal horror.
You explore, engage, evolve threads to advance your experience and insight.
Then take action against challenges you care about.
What will you sacrifice to achieve your goals?
Will you risk yourself or others?
Will time run out?
RECREATE YOUR WORLD AND YOUR SELF
Built into play is a frame work for realizing your own wisdom.
A way to help build your own best lived experience.
It can not give you the answers.
It can only help you ask better questions.
Are you the person you want to be?
Is your society the way it should be?
You'll get to choose.
But you'll have to choose.
Every choice matters, and there are no mistakes.
If you had a chance to experiment with consequences...
What would your world be like?
IT IS A GRIMOIRE OF MAGIC
You already do magic every day without knowing it.
You shape your reality with your intentions.
This is designed to help you pay attention to your intention.
To help you align those intentions with reality over fantasy.
The magic you seek is just beyond your reach.
