April’s contest of the Warlocks Journal just wrapped up at Tales of a GM showing us the next scheme of Hanna Crip to unravel the multiverse. Congratulations to Emil Vahlgren with her “False Gods” scheme.
The wandering Warlocks Journal
The Warlocks Journal is an interdimensional book that teleports from place to place, recording knowledge in whatever location it finds itself. The places it visits may be widely separated in time and space, and may even be in different dimensions or alternate realities. The handful of people who have actually seen the book more than once suggest that it sends its information back to some central location. They have seen the book nearly filled with information, only to find it almost empty again, or filled with completely different information, at some later point. Of course, since there is no real proof that the book itself travels through time in a linear manner, such analysis is speculation at best. What powerful entity could have created such a marvel? Where is the ultimate repository (if any) of the wealth of knowledge collected by the Journal in its roving, and is its creator still waiting there, learning about the multiverse? It is, perhaps, better not to know.
Tiny Gork has the honour of hosting the 20th installment of the Warlocks Journal wandering contest. The Journal is drawing from Tiny Gork’s library on a very specific subject this time, time is exactly what it appears to be interrested in.
The Journal is gathering information on Chronomancy, the term that time magic has been stamped with, magical spells, rituals, ceremonies and abilities to manipulate or exploit the concept of time. While the Time Hunters have been known to hunt down as many recipes for time manipulation as possible, many still survive scattered across the multiverse.
To participate in the Warlocks Journal May contest 2015, design in max. 250 words a Chronomancy Spell/Ritual/Ceremony, your submission is to be free of system rules and stats.
The Journal has already recorded the following:
From the interior of The Ancient Obsidian Watcher of Gaaluhm was collected inscriptions that took many ages to decipher, once translated it revealed an ancient magical ritual.
The Ritual of The Time Courier.
When completed the Ritual supposedly would allow a message to be sent telepathically through time to a recipient.
The Ritual itself takes a full day to complete, during which several ingredients needs to be consumed by burning water.
– the eye of a creature able to pierce the barriers of planes with its gaze.
– the brain of a telepathically strong being.
– a sample of a phoenix’s ash.
– fluid from a Time Frog.
As the Ritual approaches it’s end, the intended recipients true name is spoken and the invoker opens a window through time, space and planes and is allowed to speak exactly 25 words in exactly 3 minutes.
