Anyone who's ever played a game of Dungeons & Dragons knows that the coolest magical items and spells are the ones that have a particular wizard's name attached to them. It places them above and beyond the countless other spellcasters of ages past and, in essence, immortalizes them. Bigby, Mordenkainen, Tenser, Leomund and Evard should ring a bell in the minds of my fellow RPG nerds.
I think "Miranda's Gem of Magical Empowerment" sounds nice. I think she likes the way it sounds, too.
I also took particular joy in drawing young Miranda. Happy little nerds make me immensely happy.
Also, thank you to the reader who sent me this wonderful time lapse video of the lunar eclipse, which I sadly missed due to cloud cover. I also want to thank the reader who clarified that all lunar eclipses happen during a full moon. It seems I still have a lot to learn.
That's all from me for now.
