HOW TO RUNE WITH MEAT
by Felix Katz
1. Draw out runes on paper
2. transfer ideas to autoCAD
3. Use waterjet on steel material
4. Weld uniform joints on
5. Intumescent paint/flame retardant coating
6. Create ‘strips’ of runes by linking together
7. Burn into skin with steel runes as stencils
Issues with using wood instead: longevity, rot, harder to clean in long-run, harder to transport, easier to tamper with, steel better for adapting to new techniques. Cannot be used for burning as effectively— must have multiple coats of flame retardants and will still have very limited numbers of uses. Have to make many wood ones but only a small set of steel.
Issues with steel: weight but that can be fixed.
Methods of use overall:
1. Spray paint
2. Burned in
3. Slice in
4. Pound in
5. Use as outline for soldering on other metals (for different channelling methods/magics). Pour something like liquid copper into stencils (will need to be thicker than usual for pooling).
7. ‘Stamp’ method (dip and drop)
Can pre-fab entire ‘strings’ of runes in varying sizes. Joints enable runes to follow contours of flesh and be rearranged into different ‘strings’. ‘Clipping style’ joints. Can have portable strings— bracelets, necklaces, earrings, etc.
Other methods: Milling (machine carves required piece w/detailing), burin (hand engraving), laser engraving
To Whom This May Concern,
I do not mean to be presumptuous by sending a report, but I feel that I should pass along this information. Personal details regarding Ryan North and the laboratory work are within.
My specific concerns regard a scientist being employed named ‘Aaron’. Two things are potentially a problem for our operations. Firstly, Aaron’s objectivity is compromised. He has a personal history with Ryan North that leaves his judgment questionable. Details are explained further in the report. There is also evidence that he has plans that are contrary to our goals.
I apologize again if I overstep but I feel I must state my misgivings.
[[The report is long and slightly meandering, full of careful language that sidesteps placing any blame on management for Aaron’s position. Personal observation is absent— all that’s there is what Berith told him, along with a description of the marks.]]
I’m a mite reluctant to hand Gidget over without assurances of his safety. Considering how you folks have treated him, I think it’s understandable. I’d be willing to meet face to face but Gidget isn’t coming for the first one.
If you can give concrete assurances he’ll be okay and treated fairly, I’ll hand him over. Otherwise, no deal. I think you can sympathize with why I’m doing this— he’s kind of been burned all around so far, and I don’t want to put him through more shit.
Any time this weekend works for a meeting. Location is up to you, though I’ll be informing people where I’m going and why if it’s in London.
Hi, I’m an Illuminati agent, and I’ve run into some trouble with your Templar agents. Not in the normal ‘kicked me in the shins and stole my lunch money’ but more in the vein of ‘kicked me in the shins and killed a bunch of agents on order of higher ups’. Gonna have to go with the guess I have your attention now.
I have Agent Gidget, otherwise known as John. I don’t know how much you guys have spied in twitter and shit, but one of your higher-ups told him to kill people. Mostly in the vein of ‘oops it’s dark mistakes happen have at’. He’s managed to murder a few Illuminati agents, which is a bit of a problem. Especially, you know, to the Council and to us.
Now, I’m a nice Eye. I could go to my people and they’d fix this up lickety-split. But I like Gidget and sometimes our fixing means hurting people and, well, that’s counter-productive to friendliness. So I’m offering a deal.
You fork over the agent who caused this and look after Gidget, and I’ll erase the slate. Problem gone. No more shitfest. This won’t come up again unless you make it come up again.
Think about it.
