We mentioned last week that JG had made a visit. We're happy to announce that it was far more than just a quick stop in and he's been hanging out in chat with the authors all week getting caught up on who is going what, which characters are likely to interact with his stories and generally getting a feel for where the universe has gone in his absence. I'm sure I'm not alone in being grateful for his return... especially since he's already contributed to the continuation of his existing plot lines: here is the conclusion of the Artificer arc: "Ashes and Steel" ... which has been one of the most requested 'but what happened to' moments in our universe's history. Given the plans flying fast and furious on IRC last night, I wouldn't be surprised to see more from JG soon.
So, again, welcome back JG!
