The Ascendant is a playbook for Masks: A New Generation, Published by Magpie Games and written by Brendan Conway; It is licensed under the creative commons attribution 4.0 International license.

It's a playbook about growing up in stressful conditions, being pushed beyond your limits and also being a cool divinely inspired teen superhero. 

Push who you are to the very limit, and surpass your own legends!

Updated in January 2022 with some new vector art, minor language and formatting tweaks. The Experimental version has un-playtested options for the move 'Something Makes you Lesser' and updated art, please let me know how playing it goes!

Those who don't have money to access the playbook can view the WIP version on google drive, by following this link here! 
This page is set up so you can support the artist and I, but we want you to have access to it regardless!

Does this come with rules that function with if there is a Joined playback to go with this?

I have thought about but never playtested this so it's not in the PDF!


Take Legend.  Choose at least 2 myths that you share with your other half. Add at least one myth that you do not share.

If you do end up playing a Joined with this playbook, please tell me how it goes!!!
