The preview for NT22R has just been released and the volume itself will be out in a week. With a new light novel volume comes a fair amount of new information to be added to the wiki. As usual, article edits regarding newly released novel content are prohibited until the novel is fully translated. However, there are a number of things which could do with discussion in the meantime. Before we are permitted to add stuff from NT22R, it'd be a good idea to discuss and plan some of the additions that are going to be carried out and get a rough idea of what is going to be done, how it's going to be done and who is interested in doing it (so we don't inadvertently thwart one another's efforts (after all, it can be annoying when you put a fair amount into something only for it to have turned out to have been for naught), and can cooperate to achieve the optimum result).
This thread is being started a week before the actual release, so the amount of information we're going to be dealing with isn't entirely clear at the time of writing. It will be updated as time progresses and thing become clearer. At the moment, the visible stuff will be what we know based on the preview, with the other stuff concealed or withheld. Work may be somewhat delayed due to the simultaneous work on the Series Three Overhaul Project (Accelerator).
List of existing subjects in NT22R requiring revision and expansion:
If you have any suggestions for the lists, or any ideas/plans regarding NT22R's additions, please suggest/mention them below.
There is also the matter of the arc name, which we'll be deciding here a little while after we begin work. These are some candidates which have been put forward - if you have any other suggestions, please mention them below:
Post-Coronzon Arc (acting as temporary placeholder): ~1
Reverse Arc: 0
Imagine Breaker Arc: 0
Kamijou (no Touma) Arc (in the sense of both the character and "The One who Purifies God and Slays Demons" title): ~3 (2+~1)
Windsor Castle Arc: 0
For the title's R:
If you are interested in doing some of the NT22R work or have made plans to (or think you will do some spontaneously), please let us know below so notes can be made on the list and others made aware, in order to avoid any inconvenience.
Note: One other minor request and I'm sorry if I'm being a bit intrusive here; if it's OK, could any contributors making N22R edits please try to avoid rushing ahead, check your work when you submit it and avoid being too flowery/purple with your summaries. Apologies if this comes across a bit irritating, but it means less work and fewer problems for others later and it would be greatly appreciated.
Additionally, please be aware that there are areas in the novel where things are not necessarily how they may seem and where people may be prone to assumption. Please exercise care when dealing with these areas.
Was it Mathers who had said the Secret Chiefs had the physical appearance of those who had drunk the Elixir of Life?
Found the reference:
When such rendezvous has been in a much frequented place, there has been nothing in their personal appearance or dress to mark them out as differing in any way from ordinary people except the appearance and sensation of transcendental health and physical vigour (whether they seemed persons in youth or in age) which was their invariable accompaniment. In other words, the physical appearance which the possession of the Elixir of Life has traditionally been supposed to confer.

Wikipedia: The mystical being of the deity as the Ungrund ("unground", the ground without a ground)
TSL Encyclopedia definition: German term meaning groundless; introduced by the German mystic Jakob Boehme (1575–1624) to refer to the Abyss, which is also God, that lies behind the world as its source and explanation, or the undifferentiated Absolute that is ineffable; sometimes defined as pure potentiality.
What I meant was; given the recreated Dion Fortune's long-term role, as opposed to the rest of the Golden Dawn reconstructions, do you think that we should take the same approach that was taken for the recreated Mina Mathers and have separate articles for the original and the recreation, or leave it as it is with both original and recreation on a single article (as is and will remain the case for the rest of the recreated Golden Dawn, who had a much shorter role)?
