Local Fedoras Laud New Capenna In-Person Events, ‘Finally, A Safe Space’

Everyone should feel accepted and welcomed. For some of us that worry never crosses our minds, but for others it’s a constant battle. However, with the release of New Capenna, MTG’s new 1920’s urban gangster setting, garb from that period became normalized at in-person events, allowing fedoras everywhere breathe a sigh of relief.

“You have no idea how hard it’s been. No matter where you go, people would inevitably come up to you and tip their non-existent brim and mutter, ‘m’lady’. Wow, so funny and original,” Tan Fedora with Red Band sighed.

That was until the New Capenna events began. Overnight, Fedoras began appearing in public places. Rather than being met with mockery, they were welcomed and even complimented.

“It blew my lid when I saw other fedoras out, too. Whenever I’m out it’s usually just me, and it’s not long before I’m taken off due to the stares and whispers. I don’t know why so many people hate us. I wasn’t asked to be made this way,” Black Fedora with White Band said, fighting back tears.

The mood among fedoras is joyful, but many are not convinced their newfound acceptance is going to last.

“They need to remember this is only temporary. Eventually New Capenna events will end, and the next set will come out. I’m not trying to ruin anyone’s good time, but I also hate to see disappointment when things inevitably go back to the way things were.”

Perhaps it’s time to start welcoming our fedora brothers and sisters once again. The MTG community prides itself on acceptance, welcoming all to play the greatest game ever made. So, after it’s all said and done, maybe next time you see one in public it may be time to set aside your prejudices and instead just say, “Nice hat.”
