A Chiropteran Relic of the Hermetic Past

For years the most devoted seekers of the Order of Hermes have pursued either of the two fabled iterations of the Jump-Start Kit known as The Bats of Mercille. If your pursuit of this Hermetic Grail has thus far been in vain, you want to know that I have just stitched together a digital version of this Ars Magica scenario by Mark Rein-Hagen, blending the 1989 edition with additional text from the 1988 version that was left out but really shouldn't have been (e.g., the stats and special powers of the ultimate antagonist).

You can purchase your own digital copy of The Bats of Mercille right this moment from e23, or whet your curiosity with the free preview.


  1. I'll no longer be special for having a copy. I can live with that.

  2. I am so happy to finally get hold of this. Saturday is game night and my group is currently in front of Calebais. Maybe I can sneak in some bats ... :)

  3. Excellent post. Keep posting such kind of information on your blog. I3 Cam Wit
