Hey, could you please recommend me some books or information to read about sigils? Thank you so much

Ooh have I got a thing for you - [my sigils FAQ blog page]. If you can’t view that, you can find a rebloggable version [on my old blog], but some of the links might be dead / broken at this point. (I hardcore need to rewrite that for this blog, don’t I?) Imma copy and paste the links and resources section for you from my blog page, just in case:

So yeah. Sigils. Enjoy, anon :D

The king is fed up with losing cargo ships. He decides to hire several boats to figure out why no boats are returning.

  • Another realm.
  • Horrible monsters.
  • Pirates
  • A perfect island that slowly drains your life force.
  • The ocean just stops. Several boats are crashed at the bottom, or stuck in the current before the edge.
"Histoire des animaux"

I found an amazing book in a garage sale. Probably from the second half of the 18° century because at some point they talk about something happening in 1754. It’s called “Histoire des animaux” (History of Animals) and there’s really fun things in it.

Just look at the cover, that thing could come straight out of a Myst game.

It describes a lot of different animals and there’s very pretty pictures for each of them. There’s also many strange parts in every description, so I’m going to share some of them with you.

“It’s said that [owls] rush to help other birds of prey, when they see them attacked by a lot of other birds.”

“[The eel] is full of life ; its body, skinned and cut into pieces, still moves for a while, especially around its heart.”

The giraffe is called chameleopard for some reason…?

“[Sea urchins] can have up to two thousand legs. They can walk in every direction.”

I LOVE THIS BOOK YOU GUYS. AND WAIT THERE’S MORE.

“SEA BISHOP - That amphibian aquatic monster is described in a chronic from the Netherlands, saying that in 1433, one captured a fish, in Poland, that had the shape of a man, a mitre on its head and all the clothes of a bishop ; it walked on feet, didn’t avoid touch and really wanted to return to the sea.”

ALL OF MY WHAT

Look, there’s a unicorn too! And “when it is chased by hunters, it falls from a cliff right on top of its horn, that absorbs all the fall, so that it does not get hurt.” :D

THERE’S A “SEA MONK” TOO, I’M SCREAMING

Also the next page states that sparrows hunt down pigeons to open their throat and eat the grains inside.

There’s a phoenix too! But the entry says that it probably doesn’t exist since “modern people think it is a myth”. Also that “it lives five hundred years in the desert.”

Also the sphinx “never existed in nature”, you guys. But the sea bishop and the sea monk? “PROBABLY TOTALLY LEGIT” THOUGHT THE GUY WHO WROTE THIS BOOK.

I’m so happy right now.

This might be weird to ask but did you ever Dm a completely economic campaign. My wizard got a magic spell that turned water into wine and the whole party just decided to start selling it. they've got their own company now. But they expanded at an alarming rate. They bought almost everything there is and have elaborate marketing plans. And yet they're not satisfied. So my question is how do i expand on this because the books don't really have pricetags for kingdoms and global enterprises.

oh dang, this sounds really cool. I’ve never done anything like this but here are some random suggestions:

Rival company is playing dirty and making your party’s brand look bad. They’re losing sales, money, and customers. The rival company is poisoning the wine [not to kill, just make incredibly sick].

Having heard of the parties fortune, thieves set out to steal it. [Not all of it, it’d be a shame to take away the players money and unfair]

Wine/alcohol is now outlawed. Look up the history of prohibition in the USA and get inspired by that?

The area they’re in is in a drought, and water is highly sought after. 

An employee is taking ridiculous amounts of wine home for himself, but which one is it?

There is a place that cannot be bought or wined and dined. They have no desire for money or booze, have a large population, and your party has gotten into wacky antics with them somehow. Now they have to play a normal campaign for a little bit.

Your party are prime targets for theft/con men now. Traveling is dangerous/their home must be safely kept.

The goddess of wine has heard about their wonderful wine. She commands they bring several large casks of wine, personally. The wine must be made using water from [mythical/beautiful/etc lake thats a few days travel from the party]

They want to expand into a new far region. The roads are dangerous, the waves high, and the wind harsh. Flying creatures don’t fare well, horses can only go so far. The biggest, strongest boat is the only one that can go across the sea.

I told you I’d doodle something for you, Karaii! Arctic Sea Hobos! :D
#backtogether and this time 4evur!
I can’t stop laughing I just want them to be happy and hug and enjoy each other’s company even when they don’t talk about everything because they are stubborn old men with a lot of pride! I want them to rebuild the trust  that was lost and just- HNNNG have someone to rely on for once!

hello it’s kam from @fysookai (if you remember the orange x chen mb and a kaisoo mb based on a fic of mine). i wanted to share recent ones im proud of :D chanyeol x the sea, chanbaek x b&w and chen x teal&pink. i hope you like these ^o^
also since i never responded to my last submission about my fic(someoNE ASKED TO SHARE AAH), i’ll do it here before i forget again lMAO. it’s “the bad boy has a daddy” under bbubbleddae on asianfanfics. but i think it’s kinda trash for now lol

so the more i think on it, the more i see the method to the madness that is jon being crowned kitn when it was sansa’s influence/interference that really brought the victory home–and it’s more than the patriarchy (or perhaps less, depending on your perspective): it is, simply, a narrative device to strengthen jon’s claim to the seven kingdoms, or at the very least it’s the foundation for targbowl

no matter their relationship beforehand, when danielle–bless her pyromaniac heart–sees that jon has the support, loyalty, and love of the people that she had so relied upon to gain the throne, i imagine she’ll have a s1 viserys moment: when he saw how the dothraki loved her, how they’d brave the narrow sea for her, when it was he who had fancied himself their commander and king, who thought the horde was his to control. and, as it turned out, they weren’t his at all, and had pledged themselves to his sister instead

that was viserys’ breaking point, and i think the similar realization re: jon and the north will be d’s as well, and then… well…

*space jam theme plays*

targbowl is ON
