Heart of the Union
The Progenitors hid far more depth than anyone, Tradition or Technocrat, realized. Too long considered by others — and even themselves — as lab monkeys and cloistered researchers, their protective cocoon of isolation was ripped away by the Dimensional Anomaly. Forced by cataclysmic events, the Progenitors are injecting themselves back into a sick world.
The Union’s surgeons and chemists have made their diagnosis, and it scares them: the Technocracy’s diseased and about to tear itself apart. Traditions keep peddling snake oil treatments to a populace yearning for an easy fix. And there are worse things out there, cancers on the world. So the Progenitors must take the only sensible action: arm up and prep the OR.
A World Infected
The Masses are gobbling up the ideas behind biotechnology, medical advancements, cloning, and neurochemistry — nearly everything from the Convention’s bag of tricks. But the world is still full of scared people looking for magic pills to make all their problems go away. The members of the Technocracy are no different. But now the Progenitors are in the mix, frantic trauma surgeons elbow-deep in unwilling patients. Convention Book: Progenitors updates Mage: the Ascension with 21st century medicine, biotech, and desperate idealism.
Convention Book: Progenitors is available now in PDF and Print editions at DriveThruRPG.com!
Other Convention Books for Mage: the Ascension include:
Convention Book: N.W.O – The proud men and women who serve the New World Order are the paragons and saviors of humanity. These Enlightened minds have the thankless job of being our shepherd, leading us to ultimate Empowerment and protecting us from utter chaos: the misguided Traditionalists, corrupted Technocrats, vile creates, and ourselves.
Convention Book: Interation X – Iteration X represents the cutting edge of artifice, material science and man-machine technology. The Clockwork Conventioneers may be considered killer cyborgs or emotionless drones by their peers, but in truth they’re pioneers as well as warriors. The Iterators’ tools and computers empower humans, overcome defects and enable people to do things that would be impossible without the aid of machines. But with directives from machine intelligences and humans who give up flesh for metal, who’s the master and who’s the servant?
