Beware, my apprentice, of the curse of counter spells and endless loops.

Technical Details and Credits
This image has been rendered using the POVRay raytracer. No post-processing has taken place on the image to make the illusion work; this is the 3D scene as it is rendered by the raytracer.

The font that is used is Mage Script by Neale Davidson.

Edit - 9 June 2014
Updated image to improve the look of the "magic electricity". Amongst others, it is now more prominent.

Your use of lighting makes it really cool

Thanks. Yes, the lighting helps to re-enforce the shape, making it clear that I did not cheat. It's really impossible! ;-)

Awesome! I've been staring at it for a few minutes and am still trying to figure it out I am a dummy!

Thanks! And, did you figure it out? This one doesn't give its secret away easily though...

Ok, I think I've got it. Good luck putting it on though!

Wearing it might be a challenge indeed. It doesn't seem to be designed for that, but maybe there's a magic spell somewhere that could help with that...

Yeah... maybe it's written on the ring!! Lightbulb 
eriban's avatar
no, the ring contains two other less useful spells actually...

ok what do they do?
eriban's avatar
One claims to be an Undo spell, the other is a Counter spell, but both have their limitations...
