In addition to these brilliant Lebanon Circle effects, I too have Doug's new 'Ripper Dark Museum' on order (I think I was there before the que with an email asking Doug if a Ripper version was possible just as he hiimself was developing the new effect).
Dougs effect will be third up in my Ripper routine and will be the first effect where folks realize that the routine is going someplace they've not been before..........to say the least.

I've also picked up some other items for my half hour or so of 'Ripper' magic.

'Band of the Hand', 'Hey Boss' and a few other older items, then the newer stuff, a custom version of Outlaw's 'Whitechapel' effect with all entries hand written by me in a SpeedBall nib and NO modern dates printed anywhere on the book, this will put the effect solidly back in 1888, when Whitechapel was absolutely chock-a-block with pawn shops.

Of course Kate Eddowes was discovered in Mitre Square with a "small mustard tin containing two pawn tickets" according to the police report which went on to describe "her abdomen cut open and her entrails put up around her neck" (A Ripper act this detailed is almost at the line as far as acceptable material is concerned so one has to be very careful and very accurate with the facts of the case, but as a wise man stated regarding a certain 'Dark Museum' order, "it's something your specs will never forget")
I'm just writing the script for this part of the routine, but I'm hoping it will play well with Rick and Outlaws 'Whitechapel'.

I've also got a couple of Ripper hardcovers, 'The Lodger' and 'Case Closed' with which to do a Hoy book test at the top of the routine to check and see if the vibes are 'right' for contacting old Jack.

I also ask who it is that's in the room with us, to which the chalk slates respond 'Saucy Jackie'.

I've recently been influenced heavily by The Curator and 'Hauntiques' use of extremely accurate props, I also have a 10" knife from the mid 1800's (the size often postulated by forensic exams in 1888 as the size of the Ripper knife), a few fourpence and a Maundy money set, and a London newspaper from the fall of 1888 containing the latest Ripper news. All of these I show the specs to set the environs of the East End solidly in their minds. (these items cost me almost as much to purchase as the effects themselves).

I know I'll be asked many questions about the Ripper either during or after the routine, so I researched what the hard core Ripperologists consider to be the best book on the topic, and without a single 'nay' everybody says that Philip Sugden's 'The Complete History of Jack the Ripper' is THE book to study. I've read it and re-read it in efforts to quickly and accurately answer any questions specs may have regarding the Ripper affair.

For me, much of the enjoyment I get from magic is actually putting a routine together, so how often I'll perform this Ripper routine, and for whom really isn't much concern to me right now. It's definitely a 'limited audience' type of routine, but I know when I DO perform it, the specs will remember it!

<<I'm going to start making them, I'm wondering is there would a good effect that would go with a mummified fairy?!>>
Dan,
I think a reworked version of the Hommunculus effect that was in the New Invocation would work (it was the one with the captured tiny skeleton in a mason jar that moved toward the light then slumped over (sorry condensed version of the effect)

FYI to all those getting into Saucy Jacky...I'm gearing the DM 'Ripper Evidence' toward Mary Kelly, Nov 9, 1888. Not that it can't be changed at your will by those of you doing multiple routines from various sources. Up to you. The actual bit will use three props...only one of which identifies itslf as 'victims part'. Four props are provided however...The Toe is provided as a substitute for the floating eyeball for those who occasionally might not want to do a strong set. One also does not have to use the Ripper theme if it doesn't fit the show date and the set can also be used as an adventure piece as well...or a stand alone Ripper routine.

SilverKing's question to me was interesting in that when he asked in an eMail about a jack DM I had JUST (mere moments) finished selecting the Font I wanted for the small banner on the page...I thought...hmmm, a real psychic on the loose. I wish I could spell synchronicity or synchrononmous or what ever the hell that one word term is for 'great minds think alike'...Smile

Appologies...I've been so busy answering stuff that I lost track of the fact that this was a Lebanon Circle thread and did not mean to post the above in it...it should have been posted on the thread about the DM Ripper set...I noticed my stuff mentioned and just blurted out a thought. Sorry to the Circle.

Heck, the best thing to do is post some praises for the Bloody Jack combo on the Ripper set thread too - collaberation in the dark arts is wonderful...

By the way- for those of you who own "Entity" - I tried some combinations with the Book and depending on your set-up... you can make the effect work from really far away... I haven't tried it out "in vivo" as yet - but I will see what I can do.

Lebanon Circle rocks.

I did not know it was legal to own mentalists in Canada. Was he that expensive?

My suggestion, we all get together and pitch in on Kreskin. Smile
