Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
As it is Wednesday, we dropped over to the mothersite to read the weekly offering of official Magic: the Gathering story. This week was Episode 11, titled 'Stories and Endings', submitted by WotC staffer Nic Davidson - and DANG - was that a humdinger of a story. We suggest that you pop on over to today's story linked here, to get yourself up-to-date. You should probably do that now before we go on . .
Wow - Just like that movie Inception which featured Leonardo DiCaprio - Nik had a story within a story within a story. Well, sort of - Nik delved into Tamiyo's story scrolls and we were offered some shorts, namley - 'He Who Frightens the Sun', 'Original', and 'Winter's Howl' we very entertaining. The big cliff-hanger at the end concerns Jace and we won't bother saying anything about that just right now.
