Outlines the current Simic Combine.
Shortest thread ever. If I could, I would lock it now, because this can't even be derailed. 

After the official forums lost most of their functionality, a once vibrant community of Vorthos was wiped out.The survivors founded a new place to discuss all things concerning with the art, flavor and storylines of Magic: The Gathering. Come join us.

Doesn't mean we shouldn't try.

Work was dull.
After that hung out at the LGS and told my friends and you lot about the stuff showing up at the PAX panel.

In the meantime I had a pretty groovy epiphany about why Bolin was in Legend of Korra despite being kind of pointless.
The series heavily involved racism and social upheaval, and the villain had the presence of a serial killing rapist.
The show NEEDED a character to make bad puns and corny jokes.

Then I had a boatload of Mexican and now I'm watching Downton Abbey with the family.
You?  
So far? Quietly. But I have a life altering decision to make. I have a 7:30, 9 hour train ride tomorrow. I get off work tonight at 00:30. Do I stay up and try to sleep awkwardly in couch, or crash for six hours and play Fallout till my computer quits?

Actually he's based on a character archetype from chinese opera.

What archetype?
So cultural Wil. Boatloads of Mexicans, Abbeys of the British, Archetypes of the Chinese!

That is a lovely painting of Richard Garfield. It really brings out his feminine side.
There's usually a character wearing a blue (or sometimes green) mask that serves as comedic relief. It was originally the classical heroic archetype, but in latter years red masks have assumed that role while blue or green masks denote a less serious protagonist.

Meanwhile, Amon clearly also fills a chinese opera archetype, the white mask, who is evil (white = death in eastern asian culture, while black = neutral or benevolent).

Phooey.
Well, my point still stands.
The comic relief was of critical importance.
