Okay...

Why did Fell capitalize Human and Dragon in the Nexus Ops article?

Heck considering the first that happened to Fell after being born was getting slapped I think that proves SE's point that he always deserves one.

I would change this:
He's a manager, and executive, he controls the events from behind the curtain
to this:
He's a manager and executive; he controls the events from behind the curtain

I don't know how to change the front-page blurbs.

Oh, is that in the front page? I wondered why you were asking about it. I'll do it now.

I noticed this on Item I.5 of the TWG FAQ.  Someone mind removing the 7 at the end?

"each side projects its warriors further and further in the future."

This is the corrected text.  He originally had farther, but I changed it.  I'm curious, however, if "farther" might actually be appropriate in this context, since it is being used in the sense of time travel.

That is an interesting question. I would say no in general, since farther denotes spatial distance rather than temporal, but I think you could make a case for it.
