YOU MANIPULATE FROM THE SHADOWS
BUT EVEN THE SHADOWS HAVE MASTERS
You are a sorcerer who can trace his ancestral roots to the Sumerian sorcerer-priests who wielded vast power. You are an inheritor of the magical bloodline enmeshed in a conspiracy dating from before human civilization. Battle against enemies in the Old Game, to harness the secrets of the mysterious Skein. You may be a member of a competing Tower, an association or cabal of like-minded Maji, or a renegade with your own motivations.

from Chapter 1: Initiation:
MAJUS is a game of conspiracy,deceit, and high weirdness set in the modern era. The Maji are not lightning-throwing superheroes, blasting one another in the middle of Times Square, or demi-gods that soar through the stratosphere. Instead, they are consummate gamesmen engaged in a daily contest of wills, intelligence, and, above all, magic to advance their own goals. In the world of MAJUS, secrecy is paramount and the best victory is winning a contest your enemy never even knew he was participating in.
