Pretty simple - summoning a earth elemental with a city in the background. In my mind's eye: thinking of the hills around LA...lots of "elemental source" for the summoning, with the city lights twinkling not so far away.

I suspect the elemental is not hers, but rather was going after her, hence her back to the ledge.

But she seems to have gotten the upper hand as she has won the banishing test and is in the process of turning the elemental to her side with a quick summoning before it could depart.
Do you believe in a greater WIRELESS, an Invisible(WiFi) All Seeing(detecting those connected- at least if within 100'), All Knowing(all online data) Presence that we can draw upon for Wisdom(downloads & updates), Strength (wifi boni) and Comfort (porn) or do you turn your back on it  (Go Offline)?

Based on the artist name, I'm assuming that it was a selfie by the elemental, on the occasion of its most recent trip to earth ;-)

More seriously, to apply human body language to it, to me it looks like the elemental is in more of a stretching out position (as in "I'm free!" or "I feel the power coursing through me" or "tremble before me") than an attack position.  The human isn't huddling in fear or cowering away from it, despite its size and obvious power, nor does she look like she is trying to escape.  Her hands are in a pretty open position, and look like they could be gesturing upward, which would match the elemental's posture, which overall gives me the feeling of her calling it forth from the ground, and it has just erupted upwards and is still stretched toward the sky.

Somewhere in the 200-220 range I think. There's a lot of stuff in there!

(And some excellent fiction. Again, I love Ray's story!)

Stuff for aspected mages is a given. Life modules? That, I'm not sure. I know I didn't make any, but, I haven't looked over the other chapters. I don't *think* there are any tho. (I really need to fiddle with those, sometime.)

As for when? Soon (tm) but I don't have an official date. I could guess, but I don't want to get your hope up and then kneecap you.

Unless that's what Mr. Johnson is paying for, of course...

Forbidden Arcana is available on DTRPG :)

Ride the Crashing Wave

Magic is wild. Magic is undisciplined. You can try to impose order and understanding on it, but that’s just surface. Underneath is chaos, an erratic heart beating to a staggering rhythm. You don’t control it, any more than a surfer controls twenty-meter-tall wave; you don’t direct the wave, you ride it, capture a piece of its power, and hope to survive. If you do it right, though, you catch a portion of unimaginable power—power those who control the Sixth World don’t want you to have. All the more reason to push past their boundaries and grab it.

Forbidden Arcana offers dozens of different ways for Awakened characters in Shadowrun to harness that power and make themselves a mana-slinger like no other. From new ways to distinguish spellcasters of different traditions to more chaotic methods for summoning spirits to options for Awakened characters who have mastered their craft, Forbidden Arcana shows players how to break out of conventional molds, use mana in new ways, and become true street legends riding the growing wave of Sixth World mana.

Forbidden Arcana is an advanced magic rulebook for use with Shadowrun, Fifth Edition; magic concepts from the book can be used with Shadowrun: Anarchy, though mechanics for that game are not included.

*purchases and downloads*

Table of Contents AND an Index?

Truly, it's magic. :)


Oooh... the magic-busting Pariahs look to be a good addition to the Goodbye to Magic Policlub.
