Mage the Ascension
Melbourne. Present Day.
Michael d'Albon, last of the true Knight Templar and scion of the austere and ancient Albion bloodline is given an important duty – to reclaim Melbourne from the steel grip of the Technocratic Union. Gifted with the long-since abandoned Traditions stronghold, the Reading Room, he assembles a cabal of practitioners to face the overwhelming threats that plague the city: Aurora St.Clair, a calculating scientist turned assassin; Fernando Beck, a thinker, eco-warrior and activist; Anthony Stark, a businessman as charming as he is degenerate; Kylie Holliday, a specialist in the paranormal with a knack for maintenance and repair; and Paul Jones, a troubled computer savant with a concerning past.
