The Legacy Saga

Main Index


The Legacy Saga is an Ars Magica campaign set on the island of Hârn, in the Republic of Tharda. A group of Shek-Pvar, just out of apprenticeship, are called together to found a new chantry at Gorahnu, a place the superstitious peasants call Worminghall.

Unlike most Hârn games, the Legacy Saga begins in 706 Tuzyn Reckoning, though it is expected to go well beyond 720. The rules system being used is that of Ars Magica 4th edition, but most of the social aspects of that game have been removed or modified to fit Hârn.

For those unsure of the concept, there is a brief explanation available.

A brief note on language is in order: I have largely refrained from changing the Latin terms of Ars Magica to something appropriate for Hârn, except where there already exist such terms. A glossary explains many of the terms used in the game.
