Quote from: NicholasTheRed on September 22, 2010, 11:54:18 PMHello all. I've been doing little more than lurking for a while now, but thought I might join. I was born on a Friday the 13th, under a full moon, and have always been drawn to the occult. I know how to scry and dowse. I am currently working on a scrying apparatus consisting of a pendulum suspended over a plate of sand. When swung the tip of the pendulum draws in the sand. With a little engineering I've been able to cause it to draw a pentagram about 40% of the time. All that is left of the build is the suspension for the pendulum. I was involved in a bigfoot sighting, I was the bigfoot sighted. (it was a drunken escapade involving a stolen bearskin rug) And I am working on a steampunk voodoo necromancer costume for Halloween, so any ideas for paraphernalia for such a costume would be welcomed.

Quote from: Clym Angus on October 25, 2010, 12:50:33 PMI do remember one particularly entertaining glamour that an old friend of mine used to cast. It's more of a trick than the occult although it is very Victorian in its execution.1) Have a nice roast chicken dinner. collect a good number of the small bones, clean, heat in the oven for about 10 minutes at around 80 degrees, put them in a good strong cup of tea (no milk 2 bags) for about 20 minutes, return to the oven for another 10. Remove and leave to cool.2) Get a nice round bit of belly leather or cotton sacking. Stitch a draw string around the top. Find a nice bollocks occulty symbol from the internet (NOTHING DANGEROUS) paint this on the inside of the round circle. This is your prophesy bag.3) At the party seat yourself apart from most people open the bag take out the bones, shake them 3 times in your hand and drop them gently onto the circle. Pretend to read the bones, take the one that's nearest to the centre and place it somewhere "significant" on the design. Throw the bones again. And on ad infinitum.4) People will arrive. Get the idea that there is some method going on and try to work it out. It the mean time they'll hang on your every word as long as you keep it fairly general. Don't get trapped into specific yes no questions ask more questions than you answer.This technique was used by Rodger (TM) a Bournemouth goth around 1993. To date (last in contact 1997) it had resulted in 6 shags and over 50 free drinks. I now pass this cheeky little trick onto you. Use it wisely.
