A few days before recording this episode, one Daniel Beach (@beach7125) asked Chewie a question. That question would lead to a conversation, which would then lead to this episode of The Mana Pool with guest host Daniel Beach. Before we tell you the nature of this question, we have to talk about the tokens of Magic 2013 and the remaining preview cards that have been shown since our last episode. Are we good with that? The links to those are right here:
The question and ensuing conversation involved the nature of Nicol Bolas as the big bad guy of Magic. He's Dr. Doom. Moriarty. The Architect (or Agent Smith, depending on your take on the films). And Beach had some issues with that. So we asked him on the episode to help us air those issues and in generally discuss the nature of Nicol Bolas in Magic fiction. So if you've read the novels...you have our condolences. If you haven't read the novels, good on ya and enjoy our completely off-the-cuff and probably inaccurate recollections of the guy who's behind it all (no, not Mark Rosewater - we're not talking about real life this episode).
