Website Back

July 24, 2008

The main website – – is back on line.

Hi all

Sub Rosa is still live – although we are experiencing some setbacks.

The main setback is a spam attack on the main Sub Rosa website. This is being slowly solved, but until then, we will return to using this webpage.

We have also experienced a delay due to the melt-down of the laptop containing most of the Sub Rosa Issue 3 files. A new laptop has been ordered, and should be shipped out today.

Until then, Sub Rosa Issue will be delayed until early August.

First Issue Postponed

September 6, 2007

We have received a number of emails asking about the first issue of Sub Rosa.

Unfortunately, work commitments have meant that Sub Rosa has been put on hold until late September.

We have received all necessary articles, so the first issue only needs to go into lay-out.

Thank you for your patience.

Welcome to Sub Rosa

April 15, 2007

Sub Rosa is a new Ars Magica fan mazagine, released online in PDF format in quarterly editions. It is a magazine made by Ars Magica fans, for Ars Magica fans. Sub Rosa will include articles that cover all aspects of an Ars Magica saga, including new rules, virtues, flaws, spells, sagas, story seeds, short stories and more. It will also include regular interviews with the Ars Magica developer, authors and illustrators. Sub Rosa is about providing refreshing new fan-driven content for Ars Magica sagas.

Each edition will be professionally produced and emailed to subscribers in a password-protected zip file.

An example of the Sub Rosa content is available here.

This fanzine was born to fill the gap following the final edition of Hermes’ Portal, published by Eric Kouris. I owe a debt of gratitude to Eric, who, through Hermes’ Portal gave me a pathway to eventually write for Atlas Games. Hermes’ Portal was the playground for many aspiring authors of ArM5 who are now charting an exciting new course.

I hope that Sub Rosa will inspire a new generation of Ars Magica authors, and fill the gap between Atlas’ releases.
