I just spent the evening making some magic circles for my map. Thought I'd share them with you all.

The first and second one is based on the one often seen in Dungeon Magazine on the maps of mystery.

The seventh one is based on the alchemical circle from Guild Wars.

The rest are all original (takes on 5 and 6 point stars)

I built them all in vari-color with 3 resolution levels (HI, LO, VL). The first 6 are actually 3...one with magical lettering, one without. The seventh one does not have a non-lettered version.

By the way...I will definitely be making more...and I still plan on doing a conversion of many of the Key of Solomon images into a symbol set.

Just wondering, how much do you know of the real circles, or of Solomon for that matter?

not really cartography, but you've caught my interest..

If you want a few circles, I have an entire grimoire full of magick circles, solomons legematon as well as a few others.. and plenty of sigils.

though these are more metaphysical than Rp, or Cartography related, I suppose one could integrate a few of them into maps/RPs.
kinda like in Full Metal Alchemist, where the town was built to fit the circle for the Philosophers stone.

Cool.. Make sure you provide some type of information on license to be used with the images. Most people here use one of the Creative Commons licenses, but there are many others....

In the Dundjinni forums there are a bunch of alchemical & Black Magic symbols that some one converted for use, may want to check those out as well, if you haven't already.

urm... the circles them selves cant be licensed can they? else they may be under copyright from someone. but the ones I make will be free-use commercial or otherwise.

I'm wondering if anyone out there has some Wiccan books or Satanic worship books with pics of circles n pentagrams n such. I lost all of my witchcraft books back in college when I misplaced my girlfriend as well.

Yes this topic caught my eye a while back too. Mainly because I am, infact, a practicing alchemist and a student of metaphysical and occult history and symbolism.

I actually run a panel at a con each year on alchemy and am looking to get one going for circles symbols and runes.

The solomons symbols you sepak of are called the keys of solomon and are 'supposed' to have been the method he used to control spirit that were what aided hime in the construction of his temple and other things as well.

There are many other sources for circle based mystic images and several mystic alphabets. If folks are looking for idea or advice on these let me know.

I'm all for a rep-bonk emote...if someone wants to design it...it needs to match the others somewhat though

btw...my interest in occult symbols is largely aesthetical, I think that symbology and runes are all some of the best parts of fantasy and history...thats why I have rune/glyph/circle tattoos ;)

well, actually the 'Keys' of Solomon refer to the separate books of the legematon.

the circles themselves were what kept him safe, and the sigils are what called forth the angels or demons that he wished to speak with.

and didnt really get to putting them into digital format today, was kinda busy, but I've got little to do tomorrow so I'll work on them then.

hmm, did you at least know what the symbol meant or stood for before getting it inked to your body?

and thats too bad really, I was hoping to find a summoner while here..
