Imagine a Seattle darker than your own. Where the Mayor is openly a serial child abuser and no one has the courage to stand up to him, where cops gun down pregnant women with impunity in front of their children. Where thousands upon thousands of people sleep in the streets, denied the city’s unimaginable wealth and glitter, and thousands more escape into opioid dreams.
What’s that, you say? That is your Seattle?
Emerald Summer is a Mage: the Ascension game set in an alternate Seattle of 2017, but perhaps not as alternate as you would like. The characters are Traditionalists and Disparates working together against the dying of the light, at the end of summer in the Emerald City.
