How do you guys who don’t have the materials described in the book go about using the squares ? The standard Sigil opening method?
The squares are opened the same way you would open a spirit seal.
Yep, Square then sigil (both opened the same way). As a beginner I can confirm that whilst you don’t need the square, I felt a “deeper” connection when using it before the evocation of the spirit.
edit: Working the system as written might be more powerful actually, though not mandatory.
Just bumping the thread if anyone else has something to say
