No city in America lives in its past the way New Orleans does. You can walk through the shaded streets lit by old lamp posts, listen to the sound of trolley tracks and the whisper of far-off jazz. It is a place where you can briefly, when the night is right, truly believe in magic. And the Ascended know it.

But not all is well in the Crescent City. That whispered past includes the cries of slave auctioneers, the bloodshed of feuds and riots, the darkness of poverty and despair. It knows what it was to chew leather and eat ashes. And the present is not much better. New Orleans has been burned, drowned, beaten and bought. But it persists as the city on the edge of magic.

For now.

Through pestilence, hurricanes, and conflagrations the people continued to sing. They sang through the long oppressive years of conquering the swampland and fortifying the town against the ever threatening Mississippi. They are singing today. An irrepressible joie de vivre maintains the unbroken thread of music through the air. Yet, on occasion, if you ask an overburdened citizen why he is singing so gaily, he will give the time-honored reason, “Why to keep from crying, of course!”

- Lura Robinson, It’s An Old New Orleans Custom, 1948

The Chronicle

The Unbroken Song will focus on the struggle to find magick in a world that is increasingly hostile to it, and how both people and cities find who they truly are, and keep what is important to them. Along with the forces that try push them apart – from the struggles within a person’s heart to the struggles for the heart of a neighborhood. This campaign is about the small struggles of the soul.

The Unbroken Song is a Mage the Ascension game set in modern New Orleans, about a decade after Katrina. New Orleans is a city of both the past and the present, where tradition, magic and dreams meet in a peculiar and unique way. That uniqueness makes it a jewel – and a target. But also a gateway to new experiences, to strange revelations and to steps on the personal journey that is a Mage’s path.
