Clockworks Go Tick, Tick, Boom

The sorting beast is up at WotC, one of my favorites from this series. And the spell clock is there as well, illustrated with one of the old Magic card illos.

The Sorting Beast is really, really cool. I like the plot idea contained in that. It could be a funny little adventure, or even turned into a Girl Genius adventure. This sounds like a mother hen version of Agatha's little clanks.

Yes! Girl Genius definitely fits the "Clockwork Wonder" worldview. And the sorting beast is a more whimsical clockwork than some.

The spell clock is darn useful, from a design perspective, but I think it lacks sizzle.

I may well use a spell clock at some point. Functionality is good. It's a flavorful variant on a contingency spell, and for that it's actually useful because it's a big Clue-By-Four to hit players with. It's not a glamorous thing though. That's not bad, just different.
