Any idea of an ETA?


Late May/early June. To the printers this week or possibly next. Then to the binders. Then back to me for aging.

Very, very special, this.

For myself would only use this in a Séance setting where I am apparently recieving messages from Spirit. I posted on the relevant page at the Outlaw forum an improved (IMO) "in" with the basic routine for those playing the role of a Psychic Medium, spent ages giving a good and logical script, posted it and the whole thing got lost in Cyberspace somewhere, said I did'nt have relevant permission or some such.. seriously sucks, don't have the time or inclination to type all that again LOL

Should have copied the routine to my clipboard, so I could have tried a couple of times.. so anyone else thinking of posting on the Outlaw forum be warned to copy it first Smile

p.s. will edit to note this was another of those "why didn't I listen to that little voice in my head moments.. when will I learn?

Not on this occasion Smile

I have used Runes with Luna twice, along similar lines I suppose of the tarot routine outlined in the manual, worked well and there was a scramble for a little 3 stone reading afterwards, which I did'nt charge money for but you could make some extra money that way if inclined.
Have'nt had Phantoms long enough to play around with it but Runes would work well with it, don't see why not.

p.s.I have a keybox and normally make use of the keys, on the Rune play around days though I used Ralph Blums Rune cards which have nice images as well as descriptions and numbers, get the spec. to attune to the pictures and numbers, as an aside you get taught how to give the 3 stone reading in the book that comes with the cards

Please don't give up on the Outlaw forum! If you have an improved 'in' for PHANTOMS and a seance routine, I know we are all interested in reading same (even if you put in only an outline of the routine and the new 'in').

And be sure to post a 'heads up' here when you do, so the unholy 100 will know to go and have a look.

I'm looking forward to reading it.

Late to the party (again) but my Phantom arrived in the mail yesterday. I started to read it and was, in fact, duly impressed. A remarkable notion for a book test. Then my eyes started to water. "Joy of ownership?" you ask. Nope. The fumes were rising. Smile

My copy is currently in the garage airing out a little.

:)

Good heavens! It arrived in the UK and Australia before arriving in Canada--and all sent out at the same time. Now we are truly in the realm of the bizarre.

David, surely *some* of those tears were of joy. Go on, admit it.

Parcels arrive everywhere before they arrive in Canada. Our customs is sooooo slow. But what I don't understand is why in Canada, I get a package from the UK in 5 days and from the US it takes 2/3 weeks. In fact, I am currently waiting on something that is into the 4th week.

Mine's still fuming! But it is getting less. I've had the time to go through it and the instructions and without wishing to swell heads - this is a work of genius. The major 'in' is fairly obvious - but only if you are familiar with OE's previous works and I did pick up on a couple of other issues. But I had hours with it and I was looking at it very hard in order to see what might be obvious to a spectator. I'm pretty convinced that very few people would rumble any of it. And it's so incredibly simple once you know. I bow the knee and doff the cap.

It took mine about a week of airing out to get to where I could open it without reeling. After that it was fine. I still get a little whiff of the chemicals when I open it (even after a few months), but since I haven't grown a second head or third eye I guess it's ok. It was well worth the wait in any event.

Ran Phantoms for the first time yesterday and it killed. By the way. if anyone should ask, T.A. had a pet monkey who was frightened off by the shade of D.R. I need you guys to back me up on that in case anyone should ask. Thanks.

We just moved into a new house and while I was going through piles of dusty junk to make some space in the attic I found a strange box...
Image


Inside was a book called "The Town of Cambridge" by Arthur Gray, along with a book of minutes from an old, forgotten Cambridge society called "the E********** Club".
Image


There were also a few old coins, a broken pocket watch and a couple of faded photographs of Jesus College. One of the coins bears the inscription "In Memory Of The Good Old Days 1768".
Image


I get a weird vibe whenever I go near the box. The minutes book has some seriously creepy stuff in it, but I can't bring myself to throw any of it out. What can it possibly mean?

You guys seem to know about this stuff. Can anyone help me with this? It's freaking me out a bit to be honest. Oh god, it's starting again, I can them speaking, I can hear a name, it starts with an 'r' I think.

R... R... No, wait it's 'A- R-', Ar... Ar... Arbunt? I'm not even sure that's a word. Does that make any sense to you? Please say it makes some sense. Am I just going mad here?

That is super. Love the box. The Arthur Gray book on Cambridge is a great touch! Good on you.

It's easy to be inspired when creators are giving us such incredible props and routines.

I'm really chuffed it gets your seal of approval Prof!

My love for Phantoms borders on indecent and may actually be illegal in several of the red states. I'm actually very discriminating on who I choose to share it with. Maybe it's my fraternal background, but there's a story to be told there and it's only shared with those who have the curiosity and attention span to appreciate it. For everyone else, look, here's a shiny quarter I plucked from your ear. Now begone, unworthy participant. I eagerly look forward to the occasions when I get to perform Phantoms.

I have been keeping my head in my copy of Phantoms over the last few days. (The scent has faded enough now that I can actually stand opening it. Smile )

I placed my order for this more out of curiosity than an keen desire to use it, since my heart belongs to LUNA for small audience presentations. But everyone kept talking about what a remarkable product it is...and I wanted to know what the fuss was all about. So...with the available number of copies dwindling, I put my order in and wound up with number 97 of 100.

Phantoms has been called a work of "genius" by some and nary a disparaging word has been spoken about it. I see a number of "no doubt" reasons for this and as I look deeper and deeper into the brilliant-yet-simple design, I must admit I see genius here. Great genius that blends practial presentation with a pile of get-the-audience-to-pee-their-pants routine possibilities.

I am not often blown away by a prop. Phantoms has genuinely and sincerely done that.

Will it replace LUNA in my small audience "paranormal" events? Nope. I'm not messing with the highlight of my show. BUT I am thinking of several different ways that both could be done on the same program without having either one look like a "book test." I mean what's a paranormal presentation without a ghost...or two?

So thank you Prof BC and Outlaw for this outstanding prop.

You guys "get" the essence of blending storytelling with remarkable effect to build a prop that transcends its individual components. Phantoms (and LUNA) both create something much greater than their component parts.

I'm glad I own it...and would encourage any performer who doesn't own one of the 100 copies on the planet to keep an eye peeled for them when they come up for sale here on the Café...or anywhere else. Phantoms is a truly remarkable achievement.
