    Been kinda interested in magical thinking for a while, and I'm always up for hearing about WEIRD SHIT. Will be checking in on these.

    @texture:
    Bram mate... I'm gobsmacked. Thanks for the warm welcome.

    Everyone else:
    Hope I'm at least occasionally amusing!

    Welcome dude. I request a lesson on sigils at some point.... Grant Morrison has only taken me so far.

    Brilliant post, Cat. I've been looking into stuff like this, kind of poking around the edges, without really knowing where to start; this looks like as good a place as any. Thank you.

    And thank you as well, Bram--like I told you over LJ, Weaponizer was a great big kick in the ass, and I'm having my best creative year ever as a result.

    @texture: I don't really do sigils As She Is Spoke - suggest you go old-skool on that and head out to some Austin Spare. (When I 'do magic', I prefer the fire-and-remember approach, rather than the fire-and-forget sigil methodology.) But hands-on basic teaching, that's doable. First, shields and other basics (or at least testing if you've experience there already).

    @Fauxhammer - Ta! I agree totally about the Weaponizer benign ass-kick effect. Perhaps that's the Weapon under discussion? And feel free to give me a shout about anything you read of mine, at Weaponizer or Oddities and Mutterings - I can always use smart feedback

    'I request a lesson on sigils at some point.... Grant Morrison has only taken me so far.'

    The letters page of issue 16 of the Invisibles tells you all you need to know.

    The whole point is that it's simple.

    Thanks Oddcult.. That was the kick-starter for me, and I've watched the GM Disinfocon video and read the AO Spare stuff I can find online... was just wondering if there was further to take it, in terms of focusing will, obtaining more measurable results and so on. The of course there's servitor magic, which I've yet to experiment with... Anyway, looking forward to seeing where Cat takes his column... sure there's a lot I can learn. It's an area I'm interested in from both a practical and historical viewpoint, since reading The History of Magic, by Kurt Seligmann last year.

    Another two Whitechapel natives have each started a big project on Weaponizer this week.

    K Patrick Glover's new ongoing serialised novel BALE'S GAME has just gone up, go give it a read - it's a brilliant start to what promises to be an exciting noir crime thriller, to be updated bi-weekly fortnightly on Mondays from here on out.


    BALE'S GAME - CHAPTER ONE - CLEARING THE BOARD


    Bale's Game

    Earlier in the week, we also launched the mighty Fauxhammer's superbly creepy ongoing supernatural thriller, SHRIEKONOMICS.

    SHRIEKONOMICS - CHAPTER ONE - THE BARGAIN


    Shriekonomics


    Fauxhammer's serial will be running bi-weekly fortnightly Tuesdays.

    I hope you enjoy them! I think the guys have both come up with really intriguing protagonists and hook-filled premises... I'll say no more! I'm looking forward to seeing how these both prgress.

    We're also looking forward to showcasing art by Veronika Von Volkova next month, and a whole host of Whitechapelers now write for the site... I'm so grateful for all your help and submissions folks. Once again, a big hearty shout out of thanks to Warren, Ariana, Paul, and everyone on the forum who make it such a creative and fulfilling place to be. It really is brilliant to have so many of you aboard over on Weaponizer. However, if I may borrow a phrase from Taphead, if this ever seems too much like a vanity thread, feel free to destroy with fire.

    [Also - to the artists who still haven't received their whisky miniatures, and to Paul, whom, I still owe a package to - really sorry. I'll be caught up on both finances and mail soon I hope, I haven't forgotten you! Thanks for your patience.]

    [edited to avoid confusion over scheduling of the serials]

    I also need to start the 'Survivor Monologues' serial you engineered Roo... It's exciting having so much content to play with! I'm seriously thinking about asking some folk for help with the editing, but right now I'm focusing on sticking to a schedule. We'll see how that goes! Would love some new stuffs, though! Always love new stuffs.

    Gorgeous. It almost makes me forget my cracked, bleeding hands from all the work Master makes us technoserfs do in his infofields.
