I saw that you're now in charge of the flavor article on the main page. Congratulations and welcome! I wish you much success.
I also wanted to say that I was excited to see this line in your introduction: "Every now and then I also plan on pulling back the curtain on what goes on in the worldbuilding process here and how we come up with some of the stuff that eventually becomes part of the Magic story."
This has always been my favorite aspect of the Wednesday flavor article. I can get Magic fiction from anywhere, but there's only one source for a behind-the-scenes look. Stuff like concept art and worldbuilding flowcharts is really, really interesting, and I hope we'll get to see more of this kind of stuff in the future. Even things that didn't make it into the final design can be good--sometimes it's just as exciting to see what got left behind on the cutting room floor.
Good luck and have a happy new year!
