Recommended Reading

White Wolf

I know that technically all canon material should really be recommended, however the books indicated below are the ones that have been most influential in creating [Umbral Domains] material. Books are listed in order of percieved importance:

Mage: the Ascension. Revised ed. Brucato, Phil, et al. White Wolf Publishing Inc. 2000.[1]

Sorcerer. Revised ed. Hubbard, Conrad, et al. White Wolf Publishing Inc. 2000.[2]

Guide to the Technocracy. Brucato, Phil, et al. White Wolf Publishing Inc. 1999.[3]

Technocracy Assembled 2. Cenczyk, Mark and Phil Brucato. White Wolf Publishing Inc. 2000.[4]

Beyond the Barriers: The Book of Worlds. Brucato, Phil, et al. White Wolf Publishing Inc. 1996. - Although I suspect that the Werewolf: The Apocalype related book The Umbra might be just as good or better on the topic.
