I currently have some free time on my hands, and I figured I might as well tackle that convoluted thread about Ulgrotha that I started preparing ages ago. While the Homelands card set and comic were released in late 1995 and early 1996 respectively, a number of - sometimes contradictory - glimpses of and snippets about the plane of Ulgrotha as well as the Baron's infamous Sengir lineage have cropped up over the years and, seemingly, scattered throughout several layers of continuity.

I want to attempt to disentangle at least some of that, and perhaps shed some light on the possible status quo of the setting as it might exist today. Some of it ended up being a bit redundant, but I thought it was cool to look at all (or almost all) sources that we have, and people who weren't already familiar with all the ins and outs of Homelands might find it enlightening. It's also become increasingly clear to me that there probably was some Homelands related stuff going on behind the scenes at some point that never saw the light of day. If nothing else, at least it provides me with an opportunity to talk about my favourite Magic villain Baron Sengir. <3

I will start with the conundrum that first caught my attention:

1.) Is the Dark Barony cast in eternal night?

Spoiler


2.) How do Sengir vampires react to sunlight?

Spoiler


3.) Which version of the Baron’s origin story is/should be considered canon?

Spoiler

4.) Which version of Ravi’s origin story is/should be considered canon?

Spoiler

5.) So what the heck IS up with Ulgrotha these days?
