Mythen Keep (Ars Magica 5)
I follow a three-tier concept for the action here as well. Although a player will (most likely) control various characters, the action of the story may play more upon one level of character than the ‘main’ character of the player’s Magi. With this being said, a Magi might seek to skip out of the ‘action’ and send trusted Companion or Grog -level characters into the fray instead.
