Linked to Novels[edit]

I added that the game is based on the novels by Mathieu Gaborit (aka William Hawke). [1] In fact, Gaborit is listed on Amazon as the author of the French version of the game. [2]. 202.82.171.186 (talk) 06:00, 23 September 2008 (UTC)


He is also listed as an author in the English version of the core rulebook. 202.82.171.186 (talk) 06:12, 23 September 2008 (UTC)


I would like to add that the novels it's based on are his Les Chronicles Crepusculaires series, but I can't find a source other than forum posts.202.82.171.186 (talk) 06:45, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Structure?[edit]

Since Magic is paret of Rules, I think we should look at changing the layout of this article. Perhaps referring to another better-developed game article would help202.82.171.186 (talk) 05:32, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Edit notes[edit]

Added list of English publications. Here it is in case someone decides to remove it:

"Multisim published five products for the game in English: The Core Rulebook includes the rules to the game. The Grey Papers details on several 'domains' or liege-lands, and includes one 'drama' or adventure. The King of Spring includes rules for playing in a domain, and one adventure in three parts. Grimoire Volume One is a compendium of magic. Gamemaster's Pack includes a gamemaster's screen and a map of Harmundia."

Here are the links to reviews: I don't want to waste my time entering them a third time in case someone deletes them:

Notability[edit]

This is a critically-acclaimed roleplaying game. I have linked some outside reviews. It also continues to be played as amateur game makers conbtinue to publish for it, and it has over a dozen related publications. It is also based on a series of French fantasy novels.202.82.171.186 (talk) 04:17, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Edit: there is a substantial community which reviews and plays the game; as can be seen from its link page on Roliste.com - a French site listing all of the game's core books and supplements, with numerous reviews.202.82.171.186 (talk) 04:22, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Not a Video Game[edit]

This is not a videogame. If anything, it would be part of WikiProjects: Role Playing Games.
