Magic Story

Fantasy games with deep lore behind them are not uncommon, as what is great Fantasy without a rich, complex, and compelling universe? Not worth the time in my view, and the sophisticated, book-worthy story is what I love about so many games. RuneScape, Golden Sun (which has my heart in a way few books even do), Fire Emblem, Radiant Historia, Suikoden Tierkreis and a couple others. 

Yet the justly and globally popular card game Magic: the Gathering has done more. They have actually written the story, easily a novel's worth or more of text, which is why I am making a post out of this. I am going to read it all. A major endeavor, to be sure, to say nothing of the fact that I already have Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time to tackle but well worth it to explore and the wonders and do battle across the Multiverse. (How quickly I finish, though, is another matter entirely 😅)

A toast to the planeswalkers Gideon Jura, Nissa Revane, Jace Beleren, Chandra Nalaar, Liliana Vess (the not entirely trustworthy necromancer), Ajani Goldmane, Teferi. and Kaya.
