Ascension is the sourcebook on Armageddon, the Time of Judgment for Mage: The Ascension.


From the White Wolf catalog:

The Tenth Sphere Revealed
Long have mages sought the elusive Tenth Sphere of Creation. Each Tradition has its own theories about the nature of this ultimate metaphysical truth. To some, it is Unity. To others, Power. Many Masters have battled one another in pursuit of this awesome secret, destroying enemies and friends alike to attain an unproven ideal. To no avail, for the secret has remained hidden... until now.
Prepare for Final Judgment
The omens are unmistakable, the signs are clear. The Tenth Sphere of Telos, the moment between the soul's Entropic death and Primal union, is active. The Day of Judgment is at hand. As the gods tally each soul's due, mages struggle against their rivals to tip the scales of Karma in their favor, unleashing awesome powers, heedless of Paradox. Will their final battle bring the Ascension... or Oblivion?

Background InformationEdit
