DriveThruRPG has the PDF of Mage: The Ascension (Revised) free today.
I always rather enjoyed Mage. I thought it was a great idea and a lot of fun to play as characters with world-breaking powers. I just hated players getting so caught up in all the stereotypes and not trying anything new with their characters. Plus some of the Technocracy stuff didn't really make much sense.
In the end I preferred WitchCraft and Mage: The Sorcerers Crusade. But I still enjoy this game a lot.
