Just in time for Guy Fawkes Night (and a bit on the early side of our usual release day), we’re looking at the breakdown of social order in fae realms… kiiiind of? Despite its title, we’ve uncovered in our reading that War in Concordia: The Shattered Dream is more about widespread political tensions, the occasional skirmish or violent incident, and a whole bunch of metaplot updates that, er, have all been retconned in the 20th Anniversary Edition. But! There is still plenty here to examine and appreciate, from the multifaceted accounts of then-current events to a gaggle of new and interesting NPCs. And then, there’s plenty for which we wish they had done more, from the Kingdom of Apples overview (at last!) to Chapter 4’s mass combat mathematical headaches. As we close in on the end of the game’s original run, the chill of Autumn is in the air, but we hope the fires of revolution will warm you…

Pooka G (any pronoun/they) wonders how many signal-lights to hang in the church if the attackers come by BALLOON.
You tell me of degrees of perfection to which human nature is capable of arriving, and I believe it, but at the same time lament that our admiration should arise from the scarcity of the instances.
—Abigail Adams, in a letter to her husband
