From Project: Redcap

One of the main goals of Project: Redcap is to bring together links to as many Ars Magica resources as possible, regardless of their age or perceived quality. Please help by contributing links to your own Ars Magica Web site(s) or any sites you come across.

The sub-topics below lead to individual pages devoted to those sub-topics. Most of the links are on the sub-pages. You may also find it useful to browse by category.

Helpful non-Ars Magica sites[edit]

Wikipedia is probably known to most readers already. Check the link for the uses in creating and preparing an Ars Magica game.

TV Tropes another large wiki, dedicated to tropes- conventions of various media used to tell stories- and the media that use them. These can be of great help, both from reviewing a trope directly or seeing examples of where it's been used ("you know how in that one scene they..."). The site also gives information on creators and collaborators in various works- authors, directors, artists, actors, etc- and actors Check out the write up on TV Tropes in our wiki for more on how it can be used and warnings on how it can be a HUGE time suck.

Internet Archive contains or links to a large number of public domain works in a number of different formats.
