    I noticed you've been adding some links to the first page. When you make updates, could you post the changes you make? That way subscribers get a notification and it's easier for us to figure out what is new.

    Thanks!
    Sorry! Will do in the future!

    The bay north-west of Arboria, in Jamuraa, is called the Buzzard's Bay. The huge mountain range at the center of Jamuraa are the Blue Mountains.
    References, please.

    They're not on a map, so I need quotes indicating that these are indeed those locations.

    First Update is done! I added some locations and fixed some mistakes in the first one.

    Edit: It's not letting me upload.

    Hey everyone! I'm hoping you nerds can help us update this detailed Dominaria map I've been putting together with my friends on The Vorthos Cast. We've already overlaid many of the maps we could find or work logically to place locations. What I need from all of you, if you want to add a location or change a name, is give me some kind of reference for it.

    Please remember this thread is for discussions of Dominaria's story. Move to speculation if you want to talk more long-term speculation about what is coming in the overall story. This is not the place to argue for your storyline theories.

    Hey everyone, Jared Blando has ordered prints of his Dominaria map! Keep an eye on his website in a week or so. The Dominaria Map will be 30"x20", which is awesome.

    How does time work on different planes anyway? Are we just going with 24 hours everywhere and 365 days a year to keep things simple. You could say the timelines are desynched right now and that is the twist.


    Orbital rotations are technically different on different planes, but a "Year", as mentioned in the story these days, is approximately the same unit of measure everywhere. We didn't used to think so, but Teysa's modern age of 112 only works if she was born around 9965 Z.C. like is said in Guildpact, which would put the events of the original Ravnica block just a few years pre-Mending and still add up to the modern day.

    So a "year" when mentioned in-story is the same unit of measure everywhere (otherwise everyone in-universe would have to constantly be doing math), even thought technically planes have different solar cycles. I know it hurts, but it's the easiest way to track a multiverse-spanning narrative. The whole different years mean different things only worked when you never saw much cross-pollination.

    Phew. Good to hear that.

    So no pokémon trainer planeswalker for us?
    I would look at Vivien's as if that's her general concept but that not everything about it as canon. Kind of like Nissa's DotP profile, before she actually appeared in Zendikar.

    These bios are not canon. They were created for the purposes of this survey outside of the Creative team. Tamiyo does not have retcon powers.

    As the Branding side of things expands, I'm going to imagine we're going to see a lot more not-quite-accurate stuff like this.

    Quote from Jay13x »
    I think the idea that main characters have to die in order for their to be stakes in a story is a very recent one. I think it's fine but not necessary.


    Not true, the idea is not recent. The stories of Magic pre-mending have a lot of impactful deaths and many important characters die just like that.

    I don't remember worrying for any character in Ixalan.
    They really, really don't. If they die, it's almost always at the end of a novel or during one of the 'cleaning house' stories like Invasion or Time Spiral. And most of the time those deaths are for characters created for that story. There are almost no examples of important characters dying mid-narrative.

    Also, the prospect of Gideon wielding Blackblade as a replacement for his sural is pretty intriguing to me.
    Man, if only there were Elder Dragons that needed killing these days Grin

    Does anyone have a storyline timeline?
    I started reading the story at KTK and I'm really confused as to how much time has elapsed between the start of the whole story and to where we are now.
    Just started reading the newest installment of the story on the wizards website and Jhoira's there. My assumption was that all the original dominaria stuff was ancient history.
    Was hoping for a timeline of... Well.... Everything!
    Elder Dragons to the Mending is the curated timeline I put together (the wiki's is has a lot of irrelevant events). I talk about how everyone still alive is still alive in Living Legends of Dominaria.

    Jodah's art is sweet, although he's been de-aged somewhat (but then Jaya looked nothing like her novel cover appearances, either). I'm guessing they're making him flat-out ageless instead of severely slowly aged.

    Re: Opt - I wonder if that's a powerstone? Besides the Immortal Sun, they're the only things we know can hold sparks.

    Oh hey the twist about Josu was a double twist. Groovy.

    Good story, actually great story as I didn't hate Liliana through the entire thing.


    Operation: Make the Gatewatch More Likable is proceeding as planned.
    Yeah, I've been rooting for the Raven Man to take over Liliana for so long, it was weird and refreshing to root for her instead.

    If you haven't read my piece, here's a simple Raven Man candidate reasoning: if it's an existing character, both The Raven's Eye Part 3 and The Veil of Deceit would need The Raven Man to have a connection to Shandalar. That's a short list.

    Where can I find what Ethan Fleischer said?

    Here you go, Ethan did a lot of the research for this map. There a whole podcast coming from them on what went into the decisions they made.

    Quote from Caranthir »
    Anyway, upon looking at the spoilers - from Vorthosian point of view, Urza's Ruinous Blast pic is messed up.
    Kelly Digges explained the reasoning for using certain costumes when it came to Ensaring Bridge.
