Well, maybe. There wasn't really any firm dating. By default it's
usually easiest to assume that the action culminates 'now', but since
it's an Elsewhirl and doesn't have to match up with the rest of
continuity, the only thing it really has to take into consideration
is that Munlop's musings on the Westbo.org have to take place post
2006 - and that's assuming that the 'Respect for America's Fallen
Heroes Act' is enacted at the same date as Real Life.

Oh crikey yes. Having him described as being insane makes such a useful
handwave. But while a large proportion of the NTB probably wouldn't be
interested ("Is there a squamulous thing eating souls involved? No? Then I
don't care.") the non-trenchcoater mages would get *really intense* about
this sort of thing. Especially the LNHers after MasterBlaster went splat.
And... it would have taken too long to depict, but I have this
weird vision various mystic types who care about this sort of thing
dispelling his wards, but of Munlop having protected himself from detection
and simply wandering around creating new warded zones. Every half year or
so a new area of the country would suddenly become *extremely dangerous* to
use a gun in for about half a day before the LNH come and shut down the
And then there's the small matter of the Pentagon's miliatry mages
somehow getting ahold of the specs for the warding (possibly by
reverse engineering) and simply casting it over much of the Middle
East after they withdraw from Afgha.net.stan.
