Firstly apologies for the length of this post and secondly, do we still need a focal point for our spell? And if so would you all be happy with this?? And Third, my god you have no idea how good this feels to have this bloody thing out of my head!!! It's been rattling around up there for the past 4 days and I needed to get it out!
Forgive the messiness of it, I had deplorable handwriting at the best of times let alone at 2200 at night! And I had to duck into Kmart to find a Kent set and they only had sh ty plastic ones. If you all like it I will go out and get real tools to do it properly. If not I'll scrap it
I will endeavour to explain my madness, please refer to the Chronocompass where applicable
Weatherwatch (west) Alchemy symbol for sun, our element is Light and what greater source of light than the sun and it's opposite
Ebenguard (east) Alchemy symbol for moon, their element is Tide... the connection is kinda obvious.
Gossmere (North-west) Symbol for infinity, their element is Aether... basically what the empty space between stars is filled of which (theoretically) allows light to travel through the vacuum of space which leads to its opposite of
Thornmouth (South-east) The hourglass, their element is thought... this one was the hardest for me. Originally I was going to go with XIX which is the tarot card for the sun which symbolises the success of the conscious mind in overcoming any obstacles or fears of the unconscious, usually through attainment of knowledge but when I drew it out it looked like two hourglasses next to each other and what better way to balance out infinity with something that is so finite as sands in an hourglass
Flintforge (North-east) Alchemy symbol for Magnesium, their element is ore... Was originally going to go with Tin (you know tin hats, conspiracy theorists, ect) but Magnesium is used in flint to create a spark and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to tie the name of a guild in with my madness which brings us to lucky last
Balimore (South-west) Rune for Eihwas (yew tree) their element is Wild... I went with this because a Yew tree is in so many different cultures folklaw (the Celtics and the Norse to point out two) that it would seem a shame not to have such a majestic tree as the symbol for Balimore.
Now the M A W P I'm personally not happy with but I don't have a better way to represent Marty, Aether, Whistler and Portencia if someone could help out with those ones it oud be greatly appreciated.
Now cause it's super close to 2300 now and I've been flying all week I'm keen to go to bed so I'll read all the love, constructive criticism and hate tomorrow...
Love you Mounties
