Eric, I've played Magic since Alpha. Ice Age... well, we all know what happened with a lot of players and Ice Age. Nevertheless, it's genuinely awesome to hear that you're doing an article on M:tG.
Started during Beta, stopped playing when Homelands came out, came back during Time Spiral.

The article isn't anything deep or inventive, just a writeup of the latest set. Unfortunately the rest of the editing staff seems occupied elsewhere and I can't edit my own article (natch), so it's not going to go up until tomorrow at the earliest.

Dude, you know that I can't parse sincerity from irony when you're in Strider mode.

Sure thing! When that happens, I'll also post a link to it on my twitter feed and on my brand-new blog. (It's 2014, the year of the intarwebs!)

I just wrote a Magic: the Gathering article today; it's being edited as we speak.

That's pretty much what I was aiming for, yeah.

No need to apologize! We are none of us responsible for the actions of our dream selves.

Every oneironaut is interested in the dream Charms, none in the dream Setting chapter.

Calibration is moonless, as will be restated in the 3e setting chapter. No other unusual celestial phenomena are guaranteed.

Note that the text will not explicate a negative. It's not the role of the corebook to explicitly point out that the sun does shine and the stars do come out during Calibration, as such things are already the default state of affairs.

What is the point of having a courtier in a setting in which even your average street rat can probably have a chat with a ruler?

There's a lot of stuff I want from Lookshy, really, which actually makes me more impressed that Eric Minton has apparently managed to hammer a cohesive overlook into just over five hundred words....
It's an extremely high-level overview, as is normal for corebook entries. Players and Storytellers interested in a detailed examination of Lookshy will have to go back to Scavenger Sons or await the release of Different Skies.

So, TDO, how is Minton writing it?
This implies that I haven't written it already! Which would be wrong, because I've written it already. (576 words, just after Gentian and before Thorns.)

I have wheels too, you know! Big shiny ones. Doubtless handcrafted from brass.

Four cadet houses are named in the current draft of the 3e Threshold chapter.

Thorns would more accurately be described as a puppet state or satellite state.
