How did the newly-liberated shattered lands live up to this prodigal son’s expectations, and is the new server worth your time? Join us this week in Microcosms to find out.

I did not squander this precious allotment of time, dear readers; I took advantage of every second of it to bring you my impressions of this new microtransaction-driven version.
