Enjoy your evening!
In the course of my research for the game’s magic system, I’ve taken a great deal of effort in reading a great many books. The common thread of this all is the sheer imagination with which humanity exists. I’ve re-read Michael Taussig’s commodity fetishism book, Kuru Sorcery, the Golden Bough, Holy Blood, Holy Grail, Healing and Music, and so forth. Every system is different; very unique in and of itself. Yet, the most interesting facet is simply the amount of magical thinking necessary to construct these systems and how daunting it is to take that very tiny sinew of compatibility between differing world views and put them into a system.
So, in general, I didn’t write at all last week. Sure, I got a few words on a page here and there. There were a number of reasons for this: 1.) kiddo’s learning Magic which is awesome; 2.) helping with kiddo’s homework and spending time with family; 3.) short weeks make for long work in bureaucracy as you truly pay for your day off in a management capacity; 4.) Paimona and I decided to try our hands at something new.
So, with 100% less excuses, here’s without further adieu our initial attempt at bringing the Lay of Seidenbard (you’ve seen it here in a few scenes) into comic form:
We’re going to try to bring out a page a week (well, she is since I’m only a talker and writer rather than anything else).
