Mage the Ascension: Refuge takes place in modern Sweden. We play the role of a young woman who recently learned that she is a magician and is just beginning to discover the powers and knowledge that allows her to shape the surrounding reality. Unfortunately, she can't explore her new talents in peace, because different factions want to use the girl in the war for the power over the magical society.
