Each Saturday, Arcane Brilliance conjures forth a column all about Mages. You may well wonder: what does Arcane Brilliance do the rest of the week? The answer--up until a couple of weeks ago--was travel through time, righting the wrongs of the past. It was all very heroic, lent itself handily to an episodic format, and Dean Stockwell was prominently involved. Then Wrath happened. Now?

For a nice overall guide to the basics of these new factions, I'd urge you to check out our own Alex Ziebart's Wrath 101
posts about the subject. They can be found here
