The writing of my dissertation is complete. Just need to edit it, print it, and mail it.

That's precisely why I haven't been on here recently.

Enochian Angel Magic: From John Dee to the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

Pretty intense stuff.

That's a bad ass thesis title. Much cooler than mine!

Hmmm. Cool isn't the way I'd put it!

I can talk about it to exactly three people I know: my wife (who's been following along since its inception), a friend who's a student of classics and philosophy, and the chair of philosophy at a local university. Other than that, most folks' eyes glaze over, or they try to 'save' me through religious conversion.

What was your thesis title?

Congrats Ars! I can recall how relieved I was to hand out mine.

(Sadly?) These things are only meant to be read by a handful of people. To anyone else, it just leads to the loss of some sanity points... Wink

It will be relieving once my paper is in the post.

Hah! Triple the loss of sanity points for those of us who played the role of Abdul Alhazred!

Game on!

My studies were rather enlightening. I'll be making a bit of a retooling to the system, namely in the forms of astrological magic and alchemy. My hope is to create a very low-magic setting, but where what magic is available most certainly grants a powerful edge in the proper situations.

I'll put more in the development forum.

Congrats Ars M.

It's really a commendable accomplishment. -I tip my hat.

It actually sounds pretty interesting. I think I'm going to print it.

Thank you! I think it's a good start!

If you have any questions at all, I hope you'll not hesitate to ask!
