It's that time of year again!

Busy, busy... Saturnalia doesn't revel itself you know...

I'll just put this link here, to keep you from slipping too far into reality!

Such inspiring titles... :)

I will probably drop quite a bit of miscellany in here.

It may NOT be SFW or anything..

The first lunacy:-

HBO sues autistic girl over paintng with the words


(followed by HBO lawsuit, probably)

Down in the depths of the Chronostream!

Oh my!
There are some strange and deceptive streams of cause and causality down here... there are glimpses of things that usually only exist in one's heart's delight!

A Particularly Interesting diversion lead to... well, its as well not to dwell on the details, lest it lead tyros and fools into trying to find it... let's say in that certain reality, mana is everywhere...

From the first haul...

Wands - On stands...

The first haul in total
 Well I never!
 Magic Wands!

They seem to be old, and well used. Many sizes, shapes and types of wood.

Many types of Magic? Magick or Majik? Dark... or Milk?

I don't know enough yet!

There seem to be quite  few of these. I wonder if it actually safe to take them?

Well, I don't seem to have the knack of conjuration  with any of them, so either I am a weak
Wizard, or they don't work here...

I wonder which one is more likely?

The eyes have it!

Hello again!

A few souls will have seen these before, some in the flesh, but I thought I would include here them as I'm a bit of a completist ...

May I present:-

                                                      The Eye

A square wooden box with old Chinese coins nailed to its faces
The warded box, closed.

The box contains a horrible eye!

The Vision Flask
Hip Flask with an evil eye and horrible mottled skin.
It keeps an eye on what you drink...

These were both obtained from a particularly dense skein of the timestream, and very little is known about them; whether or not they are connected in any way is a matter of some conjecture...

Ah, you're still here? Excellent. Let's begin...

My Name is Hektor Plasm, and I am a Chronopirate and Temporal Artisan. 

What does that mean?

Aha, tricky... basically, Chronopirates plunder the seas of time and space, and retrieve things... It's all above board, probably.
It's a bit of a lucky dip really, like fishing around in the murk at the bottom of a pool- you can never tell what might turn up...
The past and the future are rather tangled, and sometimes an excursion* doesn't turn up a tangible artefact at all, more of just an impression, or with luck, an image- of something. That's where the Temporal Artisans come in. If we can't grab it- perhaps we can make it... and if someone wanted to swap it, say for money...

(* It is rare that a Chronopirate actually leaves the here and now; it is extremely hazardous, and so much safer to just plunge about in the timesoup and see what turns up in the spoon, if you will.)

Things like this, for example:-

Martian Heat Ray- Probably from the unfortunate Wells' Expedition of 1903
Sadly, time flies like an arrow (fruit flies...etc, ahem) and so bringing back fully functional devices is unlikely- so no antimatter bombs or Lemurian Majic Stones, for example- at least not really dangerous ones...

If anyone asks- they're just props, ok?

I'm always open to ideas- drop me a line below if you are looking for something particular, and I'll see what can be done!

Welcome to the first of a series of occasional disjointed bubblings from a badly- maintained brain. Please pull up a lump of something, sit down and make yourself comfortable.
Ready? Never mind- here we go...
