New Feature: Plot Devices

So I’ve decided to start a new feature on my blog, to go with the Great Hugo Readthrough and my Weekly Pull Review (well, when I have the money to start that one up again, at least). It’s called Plot Devices, and I’m going to be diving into various specific types of MacGuffins, Chekov Guns, Red Herrings, and more objects from fiction. I decided to do this because of how much I liked a previous blog post of mine about Faster-Than-Light Travel.

I’m not going to have a regular update schedule with this, but I will be trying to post frequently. Over the next few weeks I’ll be covering (probably) Magic Swords, Ancient Devices From Lost Alien Civilizations, Totally Scientific and Not Magical (Not Even a Little Bit) Medical Technology, Kinetic Magic Systems, Universal Translators (Or The Lack Thereof), and/or whatever else I feel like.
