Arix, how have I never made fun of you for being made into a hand puppet?

So, there's a phenomenon in the Warframe community that really amazes me. There's a quest that was added into the game two years ago that contains a huge, incredible, game-changing reveal. For new players, this quest is usually dozens of hours into the game, depending on how fast you blaze through the levels. And yet, even today new players consistently reach that quest without having it spoiled for them. Even when youtubers with huge followings play the game, those viewers who have played the game refuse to tell them anything about this quest other than that it's amazing and they need to play it.

I've never seen a spoiler treated with that kind of reverence in any medium. The devotion to preserving that experience for new players is really incredible.

Did they steal deals for mana synbols or were those just conviently placed deckboxes i saw yesterday?

It's not substantial enough for copyright, so the only way they could be sued is if Wizards trademarked every card name, and that's just way too much effort to be worth doing.

Also GW had this out a while back trying to copyright the words "Space Marine", and basically got told they can't copyright the use of the English language.
Same goes for force of will, it's a functional phrase that has no unique elements, nothing to copyright.

Guys, I've started working on Old School. I'm not sure if this is a great decision or a terrible one.
