Gyre is a new animation effect to the bizarre community and a utility item suitable to a number of backstories and performance situations. If you are looking for a fail-safe, no-skill-required yet mesmerizing animation effect, this is it. No magnets, strings, threads, hook-ups, or anything at all. ‘The cleanest, most convincing bizarre animation effect since The Haunted Key’ . . . but this occurs whilst in the complete control of the spectator.

No batteries, wax or anything to wear out or replace ever. Like ‘The Haunted Key’, Gyre is completely self contained. Unlike ‘The Haunted Key’, Gyre is entirely self-working.

EFFECT:
After telling his tale, the performer reveals a heavy, palm-sized bronze artifact and places it on the table. The spectator is invited to spin the unusual piece, first clockwise then anticlockwise, as the performer continues his bizarre tale of its ancient history. The bronze ‘Naus’ spins easily this way and then that way as the spec wishes, resembling an ancient game of spin the bottle. The ‘Naus’ is then examined and found to be precisely what it appears to be, a solid bronze artifact from a bygone age, simple in design but somehow strange and appealing.

The spec now puts the ‘Naus’ on the table as before, only this time something has changed. The magician might cast a spell or have the ‘Naus’ placed upon a ley line or else used as an ancient EMF detector to sense the presence of spirit activity—and this action has a profound effect upon the simple bronze relic.

Now the ‘Naus’ refuses to be turned in any but one direction. If the spec spins it the other way, it will shudder violently to a halt and, against all principles of physics and logic, will actually reverse itself and finish by spinning in its preferred direction.

This action occurs far from the performer, who clearly has no contact with it.

Furthermore, once the ‘Naus’ has been thus energized it will continue to refuse to spin in all but that one direction no matter what the spec may do. The performer can safely claim that it will remain energized for hours, days, or even permanently once the spell is cast . . . and yet be ready to reset and perform again in seconds.

A Fairy Tale:
This release of GYRE represents my unofficial launch of a series I will call The Realm of Faerie. Over the next few years, I will release a number of effects and utility items with a specific goal in sight: to bring dark magic to children in an age-appropriate collection of props and presentations.
Every Realm of Faerie release (like GYRE) will also include darker handlings and stories more in keeping with the expectations of the more traditional (adult) bizarre audience.


Gyre Launch Weekend is February 8-9 and will begin shipping on February 10, 2014

$150.00 - Ships within 24 hours!
A limited number will be available for Launch.

This looks really good. Love the Faerie Realm theme.

Will photos of the artifact be up soon?

This must be in the same series as the Lycanthrope Moon being released by Lebanon Circle then! Intrigued. Actually, anything with the name Prof BC is attracting my attention at the moment.
Yours,

Yes he does. He always gives 200%. I am bias, but I have to say that one routine supplied in the manual (Belief!) is one of my favorite BC routines ever!

Vic,
I can't wait to see the photos. Since I already pm' d you earlier for a basic description of what the "Naus" looks like ( as I mistakenly thought it was some coin shape) and this seems like a "must have" for me, please pm me to inform if I will get some ooptions to buy asap when released by being on the G*#mi €%ni newsletter list.
Not asking any favoritism, just an early chance to buy as son as release announcement is made.
It's already on my "wish list".
Thanks,
"Doc Ben" (Bill M, Phoenix)

I' ve had a revelation....that for the first time in my loooong life in magic, I will soon own and perform an effect that will not only amaze the audience, but I will have no real understanding of how and why it works...LOL....! And even though at an early age I was a science/chemistry/physics major....I still will be "bamboozled".....Thanks in advance to Prof BC and Vic...!

The copy above is taken from the GYRE performance manual, so all of the 'I', 'me', and 'my' language is to be read as coming from me. Sorry for the confusion. (Thanks for the PM!)

Ah ha! I thought that would be the shape it was. Very cool implementation.

What a beautiful artifact to use with Aes...

When a demonic force is present, it will act in a most curious way. Against the laws of nature, apparently.
