Also, the title picture you all saw when you opened this article was the piece of concept art done live at Celebration V earlier today. Not a lot to speculate on for that photo, but something interesting is that the color of the liquid on the left side looks very similar to Malastare fuel. It could also be poisoned water above Hutta.
Anyway, for those interested in seeing the photo in its full size can do so right here.
