For up to 4 players. I wonder who the other two magicians might be. I remember there were other mages in England, but none of them were comparable to Strange or Norrell iirc.

Childermass? IIRC he was absolutely a magician in his own right but intially overlooked by the titular characters (one of whom literally taught him magic) because of class.

Yup, although he didn't like using magic, or so I recall. Thought it was untrustworthy or unreliable.

From the description on Miniature Market's preorder page, the choices are Jonathan Strange, Mr. Norrell, Miss Redruth, or John Segundus.

Hope this turns out to be a good game, as I love the source material. Will be keeping an eye out for early reviews...
