Just a few musings of mine from while I was reading through the thread, take them as you will. I think it is a good idea to keep the TSAB influence limited for various reasons that have already been discussed. Basically just the Athra/Asura and her on-board personnel. But at the same time I think it would be interesting to have something occur, preferably off planet or in another dimension, that brings down the hammer of the TSAB and leads to related story lines. Sure, the members of the MG Alliance and Earth would be consciously aware of the TSAB etc. But actually realizing that it is a multi-dimensional power with many mages of both genders and quite a load of magi-tech is something else. Depending on how you play it, it could end up going any number of ways in the aftermath - including conflict, division, or a closer understanding. Perhaps a relatively minor 'dark kingdom' gets its hands on a powerful lost logia and uses it in an attempt to fight back against the MG Alliance. On the hand it does run the risk of having the TSAB overpower the MG Alliance in the spotlight etc, among other things ... so as I said just something that occurred to me while reading through the thread.
