by | September 24, 2014 | 30 Comments

With the setup swiftly in place in one episode, the story gets going in earnest today, with the central mystery that will drive the plot from here on out. It’s such an interesting world that I actually wouldn’t mind a slower introduction to the numerous characters (really, there are so... More »
