[Current Project Status] Assorted Slang and Terminology – Occult/Magic

As part of my “keep things updated”drive, this post and others with the [CPS] tag above will cover the current project status. This week, I am working on “ASOT Occult Magic” a list/guide to terms found and used by those who practice the occult/magic (sometimes called Magik). Like others in the ASOT range, its purpose is to provide a handy list of terms and slang you may wish to use to give your games and stories that little bit of extra believability.

As things go, it’s looking like it *should* be out next Monday. I’m currently in the stage i call “copying all my notes into one document formatting” stage. then, of course, the cover needs to be done, but that’s the easy part in comparison.

State of Things – A Ennead Games/Blog Update

What’s this? A blog update? But I thought it had been abandoned I hear you cry!

Worry not! This blog post is, as the name suggests, a way for me to update you about how things are going and what I am doing about stuff for the future.

First things first – Unless my financial situation goes really belly up, the blog and the generator will not be going anywhere (more about that later). The last few weeks, well, months if I am brutally honest, I was on the verge of burning out along with some other mental health issues.
