Ganzir



You've studied hard. You've delved into books of forbidden knowledge. You've gathered the exotic and nearly impossible to get ingredients. You've chanted all evening and night. You've made sure that the STARS ARE RIGHT.
So you cast the spell and open the gate.

Oops.

Instead of a properly working hyperdimensional gate, you now have a gate of GANZIR. That's right, you screwed up royally, and this DARK PORTAL is bad news. Now you've gotta fight off THE HOUNDS OF TINDALOS and avoid getting sucked into that EMPTY void between universes.

Oh, yeah. Don't forget asking YOG SOTHOTH to kindly put things back to normal.

Illustration Friday has proposed the word 'EMPTY' and this is my take on it. I gotta go back and consult my copy of the NECRONOMICON to see where this gate went wrong...

* sigh *

"Remember always to copy each of the formulae as I have put it down, and not to change it by one line or dot, not so much as a hair's breadth, lest it be rendered valueless, or worse: a broken line provides entrance for Those Outside, for a broken star is the Gate Of GANZIR, the Gate of Death, the Gate of The Shadows."
- Alhazred, the mad arab...

* sigh...again *

Have a seat, Anonymous ! Looking into the eye o' madness can leave you dizzy and disoriented.
Have some chocolate, that usually helps...

Strange things happen when a GANZIR gate occurs, Isay. Reality kinda starts to blur around the edges...

Nope, you'r banner is not working. I tried to manually reload the banner image and that didn't work. Then I tried to download it to me hard drive, and nothing happened.
It must be a server problem. Too many people going online and too few severs to accomodate them. It's a classic 'supply and demand' dilema.
Sometimes I almost feel tempted to mail a string attached to two empty cans to all the providers out there just so that there is a chance of a message getting through.
:-D

Ah the void. Been watching those old Outer Limits shows have you? Remember the one with Cliff Robertson where they opened a portal to another dimension and this static guy showed up? They didn't know about the chocolate cure though, we all almost ended up in the void. I can still feel that pulsating energy when I look at your picture.

Thanx Rowantree ! I appreciate the props !

Ooooo, I luv those old black and white Outer Limits and Twilight Zone shows, Janey ! I think the scariest one was about a ventriloquist's dummy who was alive and whenever the dummy's head would turn to look at the guy I would get the cold shivers.

Have some chocolate, Janey !

Yeah, the Ancient Ones have me on speed dial, Joe. I've gone on too many umbral adventures to avoid gaining attention.
Duck and cover, buddy. Duck and cover.

 
At 3:21 PM, Blogger steve said...

I'm always sticking my nose into mystic lore and strange occurances, Kerry. It wouldn't be the first time I've peeked into the void and noticed something peeking back at me...

^_^

Grab a rope !!!

 
At 5:30 AM, Blogger Bertha said...

ahhh! I don't want to get sucked into the void!

 
At 8:25 AM, Blogger Tony LaRocca said...

Why the hell would I want things back to normal? Where's the fun in that?

 
At 2:08 PM, Blogger steve said...

Grab the rope, Bertha ! Hold tight !

:-D

 
At 2:10 PM, Blogger steve said...

Normal is boring, Tony. But once in a while it is a welcome change from the roiling chaos that is our universe.
Oh, wait. The birdbath has just jumped up and ran away. Gotta go !
