Shout out to Techniques of High Magic for proudly exclaiming in the beginning of the chapter (and actually also in the notes of The Veritable Key of Solomon, edited by the same people) that it will explain how the sigils of the characters of the planets are created and totally failing to point out that if you’re using a character *greater* than the highest number in the grid you need to module it with the highest number on the grid.

Because without having just written a Tarot file system for plan9 I wouldn’t have figured that one out very quickly.

Oh what the fuck the last 2 letters of Tiriel (Intelligence of Mercury) are all kinds of jacked up. I have no idea what the rules are for large grids.

What Techniques of High Magic failed to drop in was the term Gematria and the standard encoding of the Hebrew alphabet, so letters above yod start incrementing in 10s and then beyond qop (sorry I’m working from a very disparate set of transliteration here) increment in 100s.
