Via tor.com, I see that Martha Wells has been tasked with creating a new, updated, expanded Magic: The Gathering game.
I never played Magic: The Gathering. I heard some of the jokes about it (“Magic: The Obsession” and so on), so I knew it was there.
From the linked i09 interview:
As leader of Magic’s story team, she’ll be in charge of the story team, driving the fiction and building the lore around the newest expansion, which marks not only the game’s 25th anniversary but also a major event in the Magic franchise.
Very cool. I expect the storytelling will be top-notch.
