One Hell of a Shipmate

release date: Dec 01, 2019
One Hell of a Shipmate
This collection of sea stories is a fictional work based on actual events in the U.S. Navy during the Cold War. The setting is the fictitious heavy cruiser Beaverton, based in Long Beach, California. It''s the summer of 1956 - a time, unlike today. For example, today a single DUI will end a naval officer''s career.The book has an understated timelessness that opens the book''s potential audience; anyone interested in fiction exploring military seafaring life will enjoy this book without ever feeling removed from its experience because of the time period. Ryan brings these settings to life without allowing the locales to dominate their respective appearances and adds layers of flavor to the work. This is a book that holds up under multiple readers rather than a one and done work. Joe Xylos, One Hell of a Shipmate runs over five hundred pages in its digital addition and some will think it can stand some cutting, but others will undoubtedly find the book full of riches well worth revisiting and appreciate its wide and expansive storytelling canvas.Matt Ryan''s skill for depicting setting is outstanding quality. The book hops from one far-flung locale to another and does an excellent job of capturing a time and place in global history without ever seeming dated.

Art & Academe

release date: Dec 27, 2018
Art & Academe
The magi of the Order of Hermes are not the only scholars and artists in Mythic Europe. In the Greek and Muslim lands, traditions of learning stretch back unbroken over centuries, while scholarship has emerged from long centuries of neglect in the Latin West with great vigor. From parish schools to the new universities, learning and creativity are everywhere.Nor is this learning entirely theoretical. Doctors can cure many illnesses, and preserve the health of their charges. Natural philosophers can manipulate substances in a way that appears magical to the ill-informed, and gain some hints as to the future from the positions of the stars. The natural laws of Mythic Europe are very different from those of our world, and many strange things can be achieved by those who understand their secrets. Artists create the great cathedrals, but also more humble paintings, songs, and sculptures. The greatest of them draw the attention of the supernatural, and become part of the legends of the land.Art & Academe provides background on the academic life of Mythic Europe, and rules for activities reaching from the astrology and alchemy of the natural philosopher to the regimens and treatments of the medic, from university disputations to the creation of masterpieces of art. Art & Academe takes your saga to the very limits of medieval scientific knowledge.

Houses of Hermes

release date: Dec 18, 2018
Houses of Hermes
The True Lineages are the backbone of the Order of Hermes. In these four Hermetic Houses, each magus was taught by a magus of the House, and that master-apprentice relationship goes back to the founders. This sourcebook details the four True Lineages, including rules for original research, unique forms of magic, and new Virtues and Flaws.House Bonisagus descends from the two magi who created the Order, and continues to supply knowledge and leadership. They explore the theoretical applications of magic, delving deeper into its arcane secrets. And they advocate peace and cooperation among the Houses, searching for other wizards who might contribute to the community of magi.House Guernicus upholds and enforces the Code of Hermes as the official judges and investigators of the Order. Its Quaesitores believe they stand against the wheel of fate, slowing it as best they can. By the efforts of its magi, the basic structures of Hermetic society have remained intact for over four hundred years.House Mercere holds the magi of Mythic Europe together by facilitating communication, encouraging trade, and aiding their sodales. Its heralds, heroes, mercenaries, and merchants reflect the contractictions of their House: it is exotic, but traditional; loyal, but self-centered; proud, but humble.House Tremere provides the strength of the Order. It controls events and prepares for coming battles, gathering influence and resources to respond to crises as they draw near. Tremere are pragmatic, dutiful, and courageous magi who know that Mythic Europe is a chaotic and dangerous place.These are the True Lineages. Without them all, the Order of Hermes would surely fall.

City & Guild

City & Guild
In the thirteenth century towns and cities are growing all over Mythic Europe. Covenants that were once in remote forests find themselves within sight of city walls, and regions that were once cut off from the world are now visited by traders from distant parts. For many covenants, cities are a great opportunity; craftsmen and merchants can provide anything that the covenant needs, and buy its surplus. Some covenants are even established within towns, or as small towns.This supplement for Ars Magica Fifth Edition provides background on the facts of life in the towns of medieval Europe, and rules for craftsmen and traders. Clever magi could become the greatest merchant princes of Europe, or gain renown as suppliers of the most valuable tapestries. Less clever magi could find themselves manipulated by existing merchant princes, or tricked into buying shoddy goods. With an emphasis on stories rather than accountancy, this book opens a new stage for your Ars Magica saga.
