That'd be telling.

I think you'll be seeing more of Corwin.

Oh, yeah. We haven't even shown him in the company of the rest of his peer group at his own school. (It's not directly relevant to the Symphony... but you'll be seeing some of the Koopman High chronicles eventually. :)

Hopefully. If I have the mojo for it. And the time. The Symphony went and got really big on me...

I said "eventually." That gives you a lot of leeway, schedule-wise. :)

Maybe.

Depends on your definition of "his own story". All alone without any other characters? Probably not. In more of a protagonist's role? Definitely.

Hey, Ben, is the WPI ley line theory canon?

For everybody else:

I am betting that this is canon, but that's Ben's call. Certain points in HL call it canon, and that's somehow applicable here (see UF4 and HL1 to see how the relationship goes).

In real life, there was a small cabal of Wedge Rats that considered themselves magically active. Many more Wedge Rats were playing the Palladium games Beyond the Supernatural and Rifts. These games have a Ley line theory.

The idea is that the earth is encircled by hundreds of ley lines, some large and some small. We mundanes don't notice them, but they carry mystical power. If you can do magic, you can tap the power and do whatever you do that much better.

Where two ley lines cross, you have a nexus point, and there is major mojo there. If you're going to use a lot of magic, you want to be at one of these nexus points. Sometimes (often, in Rifts), nexus points can become rifts, or transdimensional gateways. The bigger nexus points are marked; examples include Stonehenge and the St. Louis Arch (see HL3).

Anyhow, strange things were often afoot at WPI in real life. You have to realize that the mascot of the school is the hundred year old disembodied preserved head of a goat, there was a rumored satanist cabal in town, and even some of the founders of WPI were accused of satanism. So we figured out that it had to be ley lines.

We figured out that there was a constellation of minor nexus points in Worcester. The big one is Bancroft Tower. Nexus points on campus would be Higgins House (former residence of the alleged satanists), and Skull House (home of WPI's "Skull" secret honor society). Debate raged on as to whether the Wedge itself sat on a nexus point.

Enjoy, kids!

Thank you. I was trying to think of the name of the Palladium horror game just the other day, during a discussion of Call of Cthulhu, and I couldn't for the life of me think of it. (That'd be BtS. Rifts is the Palladium horrible game. Unless that's Robotech. Never play a Palladium game Erick Wujcik didn't write.)

Yes, really.

I always preferred to think that the dedication stone in the middle of the Quad marked one; that was probably because of all the brick pathways that cross there. (That's why it's an outlet for the Gate of the Worlds in Ohtori Academy Spring Semester Blues; well, that and because I didn't want poor Wakaba materializing on the roof of Skull Tomb. :)
