Here’s how to create a grounding hex, or ‘Calling the Corners’ to protect someone. All this info can be found back in Fragment Eight. I
The intent of the Grounding Hex, is to take six participants (ideally one from each guild, but not mandatory) to form both a literal and figurative protective circle hexagon around someone. It won’t be a pretty hexagon, but it’ll have 6 sides.
Each participant will have an object of personal significance that exemplifies one of the six magiqal elements.
The Six Elements
Ebenguard: The Tides
Balimora: The Wild
Each element has a section of the poem below matched to it.
The Call of the Elements
First look upon the red horizon
All awakened by my force
I am the mother and the son, the rising sun my source.
Morning’s called me many names
Gravity and untouched things
Though I am but a force unseen carried on imagined wings
As fire hangs midway in the sky
Move the ground to summon me
But only fire and force will show what I can truly be.
Day grows weary, night awakes
Five moons call to the water
A careful step upon the land but sea is too my daughter
Night black curtains drape the world
Memory and misery, rage and reason too
All are born inside of me, and I am born in you
The darkened world is stirring now
Before dawn breaks its silence
Life and death move hand in hand, the minuet of violence
So step right up new people and …less new people!
Pick a guild to represent (it ideally should be yours, but it’s not mandatory, having 6 people is more important than anything.
The six people will let us know (approximately) where they are in the world so we can work out a ‘hexagon’.
Those six people pick an item of personal signficance that jives with that element. Take a picture of it and talk about how it fits in with the element and you.
Say your elements part in the ‘Call of the Elements’ above.
Each person will ‘point it in the direction of the next’. Basically you do this by identifying where on the map the person is after you, and if they are say, Northeast of you try to find a way to make it point Northeast.
Once all 6 people have done this…Magiq! Saberlane and Woolie should be protected.
Note: You may feel a bit of ‘spell sickness’ after this. Some people are hit harder by it than others. Please do not operate heavy machinery until you see how you react to it. Drink plenty of fluids, and get extra rest.
