Why do some wizards have staffs and some have wands? And is there a word that doesn’t also mean penis?

The NVC told me a similar story to the one that Stella (RIP Stella, sorry I got you murdered) did about how a Confederate guy learned magic to try and win the war but the war ended before he could pull it off, so then he and all his Confederate sorcerer friends got killed byContinue reading “Why do some wizards have staffs and some have wands?

Magic theory? Punch someone already!

I’ve been looking through Royale’s notes.  I wanted to see if he had any information about Hermetics.  Which he does.  I’ll get to that.  I have to talk about something else first.  I found journal entries that detail tracking down and defeating a blood mage.  Based on when we talked, it may be the onlyContinue reading “Magic theory?

Bright Lights, Bug City Part 7 – Fool me once shame on you, fool me nonce, eh, good for me I guess

Did you know that when Grace is not doing magic stuff she’s a pro wrestler?  She actually does that a lot more than she does magic stuff.  Crazy huh?  It doesn’t pay well but at least it’s really bad for you.    Wrestlers who are any good develop two very strange skills.  One is selling.  Not like Glengarry Glen RossContinue reading “Bright Lights, Bug City Part 7 – Fool me once shame on you, fool me nonce, eh, good for me I guess”

Bright Lights, Big City – Part 4

Once Grace had broken the ritual magic that held their attackers and then healed them, it was time to debrief.  The three of them worked at a customer service center in Galesburg.  All they knew for sure was that they had been asked to work a later shift than usual and when they got there,Continue reading “Bright Lights, Big City – Part 4”

Bright Lights, Bug City – An interlude to explain why my main character is awesome (I’m a good writer!)

No one died.  Which is pretty remarkable.  The guy that Grace smashed into through the windshield would definitely have died if left there without treatment.  And the guy she kicked in the chest was in pretty bad shape too, but the third fellow would have staggered to another hospital, one that’s operational, and pulled through.  Most likely.  Barring theContinue reading “Bright Lights, Bug City – An interlude to explain why my main character is awesome (I’m a good writer!)”

Bright Lights, Bug City – Part 3 “Don’t worry, we’re experts”

A bloodied and battered fellow listlessly swinging a baseball bat came galloping out from the general area where the Spark had crashed into the hospital lobby.  Grace responded to this threat with a little hop and kicked him in the chest – sending him to the ground gasping like someone having a heart attack.  GraceContinue reading “Bright Lights, Bug City – Part 3 “Don’t worry, we’re experts””

Bright Lights, Bug City – Part 2

Grace and Christie followed their target to the old hospital outside of Galva Township.  The old hospital outside of Galva Township was shut down after the fire in ‘97, see with the Hammond-Henry Hospital up in Geneseo there was no longer much need for it so it wasn’t worth the cost to rebuild.  In 2019, a projectContinue reading “Bright Lights, Bug City – Part 2”

Bright Lights, Bug City – Part 1

If we’re being honest, and I feel that we are, outside of the wrestling arena any duo with Grace as a part of it is going to draw some stares.  Even with that considered, Grace and Christie Lane make a strange combo.  Not just because she happens to be somewhere in the neighborhood of 8Continue reading “Bright Lights, Bug City – Part 1”

Monsters

According to a sign, Saint Clairsville, Ohio has a population of 5,763.  Which apparently is enough people to support having a shitty comedy show and a shitty wrestling show the same night.  Christie came to my show and I told him we’d do a bit where he’d heckle me and then I’d come out andContinue reading “Monsters”

Is it a tight 5 or a straight 6?

Aside from me, wrestlers travel together.  It’s a thing.  It’s a thing so hard WWE made a show about it.  Especially when you’re first starting out, you and 8 buddies all pile in a van and sleep in one hotel room like kids on spring break.  I never got into that.  Sexual assault only beingContinue reading “Is it a tight 5 or a straight 6?”
