Wow, huh?

Much like a movie being formatted for standard definition television, this page has been edited to fit the viewing area. For a look at the FULL page, click here.

I asked Gennifer to put together a splash page showing off most of the cast so far (and then some!) and boy did she deliver! Every arcana explorer we've featured so far is making an appearance except for Chrys's dad and Mandrake, who has to watch the Inn during the Telling.

Beyond that, Gennifer put in a number of cameos and unique characters. One of the characters on this page will be very, very important to the next chapter.

Can you name all the MotA characters? Have any guesses about the extras? Care to wager which character is giving you an advanced preview of next chapter?

Next week, the Telling begins in earnest.

Gennifer, this is amazing! So many really neat characters I can't wait to learn more about! And having the little turtle there, and Buzzz, and Blue, the others, is just awesome! The Pinnochio, the goldfish, TV-head, and the mysterious woman who seems to be in chaftan and hijab mostly hidden by the bonfire's flare and our perspective, all characters I can't wait to learn more about. The fact that the Grey conman is there is going to prove interesting, I am sure.

I hope Mandrake can watch the Telling with the security cameras while she's 'on duty' at the Inn?

:D  Thank you so much, Rachel!  I had a lot of fun with it.  Making up new characters was a blast.  And the cameos were neat, too.

I vote would for goldie, but she diden't make the first cut.  Second choice is Popeye.  Why are Blue and Surgeon wearing matching bowties?

I wouldn't say the guy between the dragon and invisible man's a Bean Sidhe, they are tradionally female, my money is on vampire instead. He's pale enough...

Is it just me or does the bottom left look like a Dominic Deegan cameo.

Not just you (that was the first thing I thought as well), but naturally it's Kludge. Guess they just have a similar "nerdy" look about them :-) .

I'm really curious as to whether the blue bow(tie)s are meaningful in some way, or just decoration, matching for some reason. I'm very excited to "hear" the Telling. And to find out who's significant for the next chapter. I kinda hope it's Surgeon, as I'd really like to know how it's adjusting to the Inn, and how the residents are adjusting to it. Or maybe the Grey conman, since he may be able to shed light on the conspiracy that Quincy is hiding from (which is an issue that I'm sure that Chrys will want to investigate with due haste). 

Whatever happens, I'm looking forward to it!
