Mister E. Meat
Hmm, you know, there are twelve ways of performing the Rite, but eight of them cause instant death, and so might just be considered to summon Death in the "usual" manner, and the ninth is very hard to remember. This leaves three ways to safely summon death: Although the Rite can be performed by a couple of people with three small sticks and 4 cc of mouse blood or even with a fresh egg and two small sticks, most wizards (Ridcully excepted) prefer to do it the old fashioned way, with heavy equipment consisting of numerous drippy candles, octograms written on the floor, thuribles, and similar paraphernalia. They feel it's not "proper" wizardry if it's not showy enough.
I am afraid that things tend to come when called, much like my Luggage. Should my RP not be heavy handed enough, the box following me around may clarify matters. OOC on the IRL front, Necklessone has the feel of it - I took on a new job recently, & currently manage Media Operations for the largest broadcast facility in the US. It's kind of a big deal on paper... in reality, it's a major time sink.
Not a vote...
I looked over at my gathered brothers in charms - Noting that I had drawn the wrath of Ozymandius, yet not causing me to look upon his works or tremble with despair. Given his non-elemental status, you'd think he'd recognize me as similarly blessed. Of course, no one is similarly blessed as Mrs Whitlow... His Lover, on the other hand, seems to have an affection for retracted/redacted/whatever: Sphenodont seems to have enough problems on his own.
Now to check back through the thread to see if I missed anything else. Nana, are you coming too?
More in a bit,
