The Ascension is a community for those who would like to discuss Mage: The Ascension.
As long as it's reasonably within the bounds of Mage (and Mage encompasses an awful lot!), it's welcome. That includes things like character ideas, metaphysics, rotes, philosophy, etc.
It's okay to discuss general World of Darkness stuff (such as the other games), but it is off topic. Therefore, out of courtesy to those who might not be interested, just mark it as such in the subject line (e.g., "[OT] Garou vs. Vampires").
