We wanted to take this opportunity to bring our regular readers up to date with what has been going on behind the scenes here at the Muse Vessel. Just before Christmas, the writers here had discussions with Adam Styborski, the editor at GatheringMagic.com. For those of you who haven’t been to the site, I recommend you make it part of your daily reading. They offer a little bit for everyone and probably some things you didn’t even know you wanted. Eventually the discussions led to an offer inviting all of the Muses to write for GatheringMagic. All of us accepted and are now part of the writing team at GatheringMagic.
The Muse Vessel has been running for almost a year now. Every week, each of us has put out a fresh article relating to multiplayer content.[i] We have maintained the website, been editors for each other, and reviewed article ideas. And none of us were paid one thin dime. All of this was done for the love of Magic. Each of us wanted to keep writing after the Talent Search, and this seemed like the best plan. The reward came in hit counts, article comments, and preview cards. It has been a spectacular ride.
So what happens with the Muse Vessel? The Muse Vessel will be put in dry dock. For the foreseeable future, the site will sit as an archive for the writing we have done up to this point.
I want to thank all of our regular readers for checking in with us. Knowing you are out there made writing quality articles to the deadline an important part of our week. I hope all of you will check out the articles by Seedborn Muse (Brandon Isleib) and me (Bruce Richard) on GatheringMagic last Tuesday. You can expect to see articles from all three muses this coming Tuesday.
Thanks to All and Best Wishes in the New Year

[i] Yes, I know we just did three best of weeks, I’m talking prior to that. And yes, I know there were a couple of weeks when one of us didn’t write, but there were three original content articles up every week, so you get what I’m saying.
