Can’t help but agree. I think we are all a bit nervous about shooting ourselves into the aether and knowing where we are going would be super helpful. If there is any way I can help y’all with the scrying just let me know
I mean, I know a really reliable scrying spell. It isn’t too laborious for one person to use maybe twice? But you’ll give yourself a huge headache if you try to stretch it farther. So for the 6 locations we would need 3 people to cast twice each. If you aren’t doing the Goss portion, you, @Rev, and someone else can scry?
I did volunteer for Gossmere, but if Augo is available he may be able to help with the scrying?
I mean, it can be anyone. We just need at least 3 people willing to brave a possible headache for some magiqal assistance.
I can help with the scrying, sure.
How would we do this? Do you have a spell in mind?
I do, actually. You may remember I mentioned a long time ago, my grandpa used to collect grimoires. Well, there is a spell in there I’ve used once or twice since, you know. Finding out magiq is real.
It is really simple.
You need a scrying object. The original spell calls for a bowl of water (I used metal mixing bowl last time) and a crystal. But you could use a pendulum and map, or fire, or whatever suits you.
You sit in the dark by a window and repeat this spell while gazing at your object:
“Spirit of the soaring moon
Grant to me this simple boon
Show to me what I must see
Reveal to me where it might be.”
The first time I did it I actually saw weird shapes in the water too defined to be shadows or reflections. The second time I didn’t see anything but I dreamed it when I fell asleep afterward.
A somewhat reliable spell with only minor side effects? That’s new. Jokes aside, that’s a really good find, Dey. You’ve motivated me to start researching more spells in the mundane.
I can only hope to be useful. I don’t want to lead us down a rabbit hole, and I don’t think the spell will just point us to the exact locations on a map or anything. But we could use some guidance. Woolie doesn’t have time for rampant internet speculation.
That’s a good point. The urgency slipped my mind. I can take on the scrying if you need. I don’t have much experience with this sort of thing, but I’m happy to help.
Drus, if you found a beacon and a grounding object immediately, it might be you who needs to cast for the Ebbies.
I cant find a beacon.
I’ve looked, but even with my time at sea I still cant find anything.
We should definitely try scrying though. That could work, or at least give us some ideas.
Maybe even sea salt could work (in a pinch )
Okay. So. We need two teams.
I need the names of our volunteers for each so I can keep track of exactly who is doing what!
If it’s okay, can I be on the dream team? I need those rêve puns
Done and done.
I dont know if this will help, but I’ve got a really good feeling about the hunters moon clue, so I can try to make a beacon for rev or something? If that would help…
Put me down as confirmed for the scrying bit.
Go for it!
Yeah, I’m down for it. Just need to know when exactly, especially that we’ll casting in different parts of the world.
