A note of warning to all occult experimenters: Never combine the Norse runes that spell out 'Thor' with electronics around.
While experimenting four days ago, I discovered that the Norsemen had access to EMP bombs. By combining the runes that spell out the name Thor, it creates an effect similar to a magnet held close to any nearby electronics. Everywhere. This means that I am typing this on a new laptop, any files I was keeping on my other research are gone, including my video of the Recurse. Now I understand why Marble Hornets was uploaded to YouTube immediately.
But enough about failures, let's reflect on the successes this experiment brought. I have replicated Slendistortion. It is the same EMP-like effect that those runes created, and it affected everything I pointed at it (This was prior to the camera frying). What I had was a circular contained Electromagnetic Pulse. The only reason it destroyed my electronics was because the paper I had written the runes on ripped, breaking the circle without safely dispersing the magnetism. The burst then annihilated all electronic devices in my house. Everything is fixed or replaced now, though, thank goodness.
Also, I have not heard from anyone recently, Runner or Break. Nothing else to report.
