First artwork for issue 20 was dropped in tonight.

Right, article on Spontaneous Magic in all its glory done and dusted and ready for issue 20. If you've ever wanted a ceremonial magic specialist then I hope that this is the article for you.

It's only when you try to make Spontaneous Magic easier to use in play that you find out just how difficult it really is for magi to make use of Spontaneous Magic.

Still, issue 20 will try to do just that. Working on an article describing different Spontaneous options and how (and why) to work them into your saga.

Working on issue 20 and finished up an article describing a rural cult. What is it they venerate? What are their aims? What must they do? And who have they drawn into their ranks?

Enjoyed putting it together and have ideas for a few more.

Drifting on the clouds and appearing from the mist, Sub Rosa emerges to present issue 19 for your reading enjoyment! This 84-page issue is about new worlds, and offers up a trio of places sure to expand your horizons. We have a trip into wine dark seas and the distant shores of America with a large article on the colony of Roanoke by Jim Seals. But if you have an aversion to ships, we can fly into the skies with the Cloudlands of Aiolia by Ben McFarland. And lastly, we've got a cache of secrets and seeds for Old Britannia, a small duchy in northern France which can add a lot of flavor to games visiting the Normandy Tribunal, written by Benoît Léoutre. A new world might be one of magical understanding, shifted political reality, or simply new perspective and Robin Bland explores what a saga focused on hedge wizards just might entail, including an index of all the minor groups throughout the Ars Magica 5th edition line. Gerald Wylie returns with a new Set Piece article, this time examining the Mill, its role and its potential stories. Gerald also offers up a bit of game mechanics musing, as he considers shifting from the d10 system to several other options. Berengar Drexel details a new mystery cult, the Friends of the Apacei, and a couple of its members. Line veteran Mark Shirley returns to give a look at the method of Geomantic Storytelling, and how it provides a great game experience. Finally, we have a short letter from Ars Magica 4th Edition line editor and current developer of Magic Shoe, Jeff Tidball.

Our cover comes to us by the awesome and gracious +Jeff Menges, and our internal art is spearheaded by the absolutely fantastic regulars we've come to love so much: +Patrick Demo, +Barrie James, Jeff Menges, +Elizabeth Porter, Angela Taylor, and +Jason Tseng. They do outstanding art, and we can't thank them enough.

We have changed how you get Sub Rosa, if only a little.

Issue 19... Imminent...

The theme for issue 20 will be...

Secrets & Lies

What secrets does the Order hide? What lies does your House tell their apprentices? What cults lie hidden behind the most successful of guilds?

What magic might be used to conceal or misdirect and what might see through the lies?

Or perhaps mystery stories and how to approach them.

Likely published June or July 2017, we're looking for articles that fit the theme through the end of March.
