Maybe. Rumours speak of a sacred few who have escaped the Curse of Caine and become mortal again. Such stories of Redemption have existed for centuries, as have tales of eternal Damnation. If it seems outrageous that a vampire can permanently change his state of being through magical ritual, vampiric history offers many precedents. e.g. Golconda, the ...

The rules you want are in the Dark Ages Mage: Grimoire, in the appendix. You can find a future update in Mage: the Sorcerer's Crusade, along with many of the other crafts that made up the nascent Order of Reason.

For a Dark Ages: Mage game, you'll find the rules for mass combat — fights between armies — in the Dark Ages Storyteller's Companion, under the section marked "Blood & Tears." It's oriented with an eye toward vampire combatants, rather than mages, but you'll find it easy to modify the elements you need. To answer your question directly, the winner of ...

Have you heard of Kvothe or Harry Potter or Nona Grey?… All share one thing in common: they are all thrown into a world with special talents they neither control nor understand. They see the world in simple terms and make mistakes by the sheer force on inexperience. They all have guidance, some overt, most covert in term of teachers and mentors. However, ...

There is a Way, for a Small Price There is a way to make a vampire mortal again, and prevent repeated Embraces. Of course, you won't learn of these methods from the preachers of Golconda. But since you reject such an ethically rigid path, you should be a much more suitable candidate for the method. The method bears the dramatic name of Demonic Investment. ...
