When you've been subscribed to FF14 for more than 150 days, as a loyalty gift they give you a version of Zidane's outfit from Final Fantasy 9 that fits any species or gender.

You know what this means.

Yep.

My character, a bunny person who lives in a JRPG fantasy world, now canonically owns a pair of jeans.

Magic 

Magic was not born in innocence. Despite the myths about Richard Garfield's original vision of the game, by the time Wizards of the Coast was printing it, the game was already being managed to become a high-value collectible.

Had ANY tabletop game ever before taken anti-counterfeiting measures from its very first printing? A tiny company that could barely afford the initial release took on the considerable extra expense of printing on unique cardstock with a colored inner layer.

The first print run and earliest sets sold out instantaneously and rather than print to demand, they left their early releases underavailable and pushed out new cards.

I started when Revised & Fallen Empires were out. I PROMISE we would have rather been buying Arabian Nights & Legends.

When they addressed the shortage with a (wonderful) reprint set called Chronicles, collectors complained and they responded with the Reserve List.

It was designed to have an overpriced secondary market since day zero.

This image and the flavor text was one of the most touching and wonderous things in the 27 years of MtG. Some awful members of the community have taken this beautiful work and transformed it into hateful and disgusting images.
This behavior is completely unacceptable in any community and our society as a whole. If you see someone creating or sharing these images, call them out. Shame them. Voice loudly they are not welcome.

Tassadar represents to the Protoss what Bernie Sanders represents to the Democratic party, while the dark templars represent the working class, and the Zerg, facists. In this essay, I will...

Anyone looking for Magic the Gathering-related writing work: the Card Kingdom blog is looking for new writers.

Upsides:
-pitches generously accepted
-editing smart but not harsh
-I feel like my work is appreciated
-my request to change the pronouns in my author bio was accepted without hesitation.

Downsides: this is a marketing job. Everything you publish comes with the subtext "we want readers to buy MtG products from Card Kingdom."

DM me if you're interested and I'll put you in touch.

Surprise surprise, they suspended Winota in Historic as well, nobody could've seen that coming, it was such a fair card, just letting you cheat on mana and cards!

@DialMforMara Yeah I agree with that, which I'm totally in for, but I feel like if I didn't have the context of the original, I'd be totally confused. I think it could have used a little bit more explanation.

I finally finished the story. I think they somehow made the plot less comprehensible. If I didnt play the original I dont think id understand why I am even fighting sephiroth, or what he is doing. But, overall i liked it. I have to admit, the combat grew on me
