Occult Detective RPG Update

I had planned to launch the Occult Detective RPG on May 1. That date now looks a tad bit too optimistic. I’m having surgery in April and that’s going to gravely affect my productivity, so, rather than rush the project (or worse, try to complete it in a medicated state) I am going to postpone…

Paranormal Retroactivity

Magick, in all its forms and practices, is our attempt to kindle that spark of divinity that is our birthright. We are the children of the gods and we are meant to stride amongst the infinite… Each of us has a number, special to us. Mine is 8, though I generally write it ∞. It…

True Detective Disappoints…Again

Let’s cut to the chase — Season Three, the much heralded return of a series desperate to pretend Season Two never happened, was held together by some damn good acting by Ali and Dorff, but in the end it was an ultimately disappointing exercise where all the most interesting characters were women that got almost…

What I’m Reading in 2019

Another 56 books read last year. I used to read near double that, but time is not the luxurious bounty it once was, and, to be perfectly honest, my eyes tire out a lot quicker than they did even a few short years ago. My goal has always been to at least read 52 books.…

Volunteering

I’m looking to volunteer with a ghost hunting group in my area but I am not having much luck in finding one. I live in Central Florida right between Tampa and Orlando. I’ve checked online but found just dead websites. Anyone have suggestions? submitted by /u/the_punisher_iv [link] [comments] Tweet

My thoughts on Water Witchcraft by Annwyn Avalon

Maybe the book caught me in a good mood, or maybe it just appealed to my Piscean nature, but for a someone new to the craft, it’s pretty thorough and has a voice that will appeal to most…

Project Blue Book is still solid TV entertainment

Catching up on Project Blue Book, History Channel’s retelling (mostly reimagining) of the US Air Force’s investigations into UFO sightings from 1952 – 1969, the series continues to be a treat. Admittedly, the stories have been as far from reality as one can manage, but entertaining, none-the-less. The show is big on atmosphere and Aidan…

Happy Birthday, Robert E. Howard

Today marks the 113th anniversary of the nativity of my favorite author — Robert E. Howard. In, what is arguably his finest work, Beyond the Black River, he wrote, “Barbarism is the natural state of mankind. Civilization is unnatural. It is a whim of circumstance. And barbarism must always ultimately triumph.” In a letter to…
