Everything that players and storyguides need to know in order to tell rich and engaging stories in those regions is provided, from important personalities, rulers, and historical figures to dangerous monsters and cunning adversaries. On top of all of that, the culture, history, and geography of the Tribunal is presented in an easy-to-use reference.
Fans of Ars Magica may uncover dozens of references to the game's past editions in Faith & Flame. The lost covenant of Val-Negra, for example, is revealed in its terrible ruined glory. Fans of magical fantasy will appreciate such monsters as the legendary Tarrasque, illustrated in this volume by cover artist Christian St. Pierre. Armchair historians should revel in the book's insight into Basque culture and folklore, to say nothing of the fallout of the Albigensian Crusade.
