About Against the Dark: The Transylvanian Tribunal

In Transylvania, land of dark myth, the Hermetic Order rules openly. This is the heart of House Tremere and a seat of immense magical power. The magi stand united against the restless nobility and their struggles for domination during the day, and the stalking hunger of the vampire hordes at night.

This Ars Magica expansion provides all of the background information necessary to play in Mythic Transylvania. Walk the shores of the Danube, become involved in the age-long struggle of the mountain dragons, or learn the hedge magic of the storm wizards. This supplement contains story seeds and resources to fuel your saga.
