From Project: Redcap
Dies Irae (expected January/February 2016) will be the last supplement for the Ars Magica Fifth Edition rules. Atlas Games has stated a desire to publish an Ars Magica Sixth Edition "at some point" but has not made public announcements more definite than that.
These are products that have been announced on the Atlas Games Web site.
Tales of the Quaesitors
- Is Ars Magica dead?
- A: No! Quarterly product releases for ArM5 have come to an end, but there are already more than enough products to run a saga for years. All of those products are available from Atlas' retail partner, Warehouse 23. The fan community remains active and continues to discuss story ideas, rules, and more through the mailing list and official forum. Fanzines are still being produced with new, unofficial material.
- Why is ArM5 ending?
- A: David Chart decided that he and the authors had completed the game (ArM5) he set out to produce, and it was time for him to retire from producing Ars Magica
- Can one of the authors or playtesters leak details of (upcoming supplement)?
- A: In a word, no. Authors and playtesters enter a legally binding non-disclosure agreement with Atlas Games. If one of them were to leak details about a product before it was published, he or she would be hung, drawn, and quartered.
This question seems to come up occasionally on the Mailing Lists and official forum. It's true that several Ars Magica authors are regular posters to both fora, but that doesn't mean they will let anything slip. Sorry.
