    Interesting thought I had earlier:

    "Ormen", as in the first part of the demon Ormendalh, is Swedish for "The Snake". The cryptoliths? Look like snakes, especially in the image from Tamiyo's journal liked above.

    Food for thought.

    (They also echo the heron symbolism throughout Avacyn's church, and particularly they evoke heron on the moon, which I think is what creative's going for, but I thought the snake connection was neat.)

    I stand by my theory that we're doing to see at least 10 more murders to get the card count down to the 210 of the original Conspiracy.

    Moved to Storyline Speculation

    We have not confirmed these leaks are real, so keep that in mind before you get too excited and start spinning theories.

    Trust me, Gideon was that good--he's the only walker I run, though I've only got him at level 30 so far. His abilities are bonkers and he has access to one of the best disablers (Suppression Bonds). Being able lock down your opponent while consistently popping Call to arms (his second ability, permanent pump of all your creatures) and Champion (gives a creature a massive permanent pump and Berserk, higher levels add more keyword abilities) was brutal. They increased the cost of all three of his abilities significantly, so I'll have to see whether it's enough to make me switch.

  • posted a message on BFZ and Gatewatch redone/changed. How would you do it? (SPOILERS for Oathwatch story)
    This is not the place for fan fiction. Storyline is for discussion of canon Magic lore only. If you wish to write your own version of a Magic story, that's what the Personal Writing subforum is for.

    Thread locked.

    Yeah, rehosting someone else's content without permission is at best plagarism.

    This is just a temporary outage anyway. You'll notice it's not just old lore content that's 404-ing right now; the Reserve List explanation is missing, event coverage is missing, etc. They're transitioning to a new website format and haven't gotten all the URLs redirected yet. Nothing to freak out over.

  • posted a message on Reserved List pulled from Mothership Site?
    Most of their archived content from the old version of the website is offline while they try to get the redirects set up on the new site. You get the same thing trying to go to old Uncharted Realms articles etc.

    Trick has already stated on his twitter that they're aware of the problem and are fixing the redirects now. In the meantime, we have a wiki that summarizes most of that information. We don't need a place to host all of the files directly from Wizards. That's a copyright violation.

  • posted a message on Which major characters don't have cards?
    Focusing on Brothers' War:

    I think Tawnos is pure blue mana .

    I'd love to have seen Kaya with a card, most likely in white mana .

    Tocasia, also, as either straight blue mana or blue mana white mana . Mechanically I think Tocasia would be interesting, but mostly because of how much of Urza's pre-spark character was shaped by her influence and training. I'd argue that Urza's white comes from growing up under her tutelage. Urza was always closer to her, where Mishra was closer to the desert people (and I think that's where a lot of his red comes from).

    Second what Sene said about those templates; I think we can safely archive them away.

    As to the front page, I think it's a great idea to try and improve it. Seconding Corv's proposals of introducing featured article criteria and setting up links to the portal pages. With the featured article criteria, that will go a long way to giving us rotating content for the front page as we can select new featured articles at set intervals. I think also adding rotating news highlight will help making the front page better as well, because we'll have a constant stream of fresh content.

    Finally got my copy yesterday but I haven't gotten to read it in depth yet. I do want to say that the cover is spectacular.

    Quote from Gutterstorm »
    I'm not one to think highly of people but the MtG subset tends to be, at least to some reasonable amount, intelligent.
    ...have you read some of the posts in this forum? I long ago gave up thinking Magic was the pastime of best and brightest. Wink

    Personally, I think this change is for the best. Yes, it's a dry and flavorless name, but if you take a player who's never been exposed to the WotC website, handed them a mouse, and said "find the story of Magic" they wouldn't go "oh, Uncharted Realms sounds like where they would keep the fiction." They're going to see a bunch of columns, none of which have the word story in the name, and get confused. There's a fine line between flavorful naming and obfuscation.

    Quote from Bhogal83 »
    I don't think calling us "entitled" is helping your argument, kaburi.
    You're absolutely right. That was a poor word choice. I was trying to find a word that was more serious than "enfranchised", and I didn't think about the connotations. I was going for "emotionally invested". Slant
