Magic the Gathering: chaos divination method + invoking D&D gods [Jan. 24th, 2009|11:04 pm]
UK Chaotes
chaophomet


For a while I've had an idea of creating a divination/oracle deck from Magic the Gathering cards. There are thousands of them and some of them have very good titles/images which would be interesting answers to questions. Think of it like a possible fantasy tarot deck but with tens of thousands of cards instead of just 78.

Well, I've yet to put together an actual deck of suitable cards, which would take some effort and money... but in the mean time, I've found an interesting way to test this out.

There is an online card database which has every card from the game, and it has a "Random Card" feature. I've been playing around with this for a few minutes and the results are promising. I already got cards called "Shatter" and "Punish Ignorance" which clearly could be good answers depending on the questions asked. So who knows how many possibilities there are.
Of course you may get total nonsense/crap cards, like characters of some sort (or perhaps these could be interpreted like tarot court cards from their apparent personalities/appearance)?

Here's the link to the card database (click the blue "Random Card" link). Try this out, have fun with it... comment with your thoughts and any interesting results!

Or perhaps some of you may have other unusual/experimental divination techniques to share?

Another idea I've been toying with is invoking some of the deities from the Dungeons and Dragons player's handbook. I figure, these are characters that are well known, occupy brain space in a lot of intelligent/geeky peoples' minds and the religious fervour with which D&D is often played may provide an interesting source of power to these entities that may establish them as sentient spirits/egregores of some kind.

Obviously, invoking D&D gods will be laughable to most, but surely fellow chaotes can see the appeal in this, if one enjoys the aesthetic. An interesting addition to this is that the deities are roughly split up into the Good/Neutral/Evil and Lawful/Neutral/Chaotic character alignments which help flesh out their natures and possible uses. Just think, invoking Boccob god of magic for help with spellwork, Fharlanghn god of roads for travel protection, or Vecna god of secrets to discover hidden.out of sight knowledge...
I wonder how effective this would be. Surely if Cthulhu can be invoked, so can D&D deities!

Modern pantheon? [Jan. 2nd, 2009|01:04 pm]

If it could be said today that we have our plethora of pantheons, who would they be? Clearly, the inflated mannequins we call celebrities.

I wonder for a bit of pop magick, what would happen if one attempted to invoke celebrities? Madonna for self confidence, Ed Norton for muscle building, Britney for periodic psychosis? The possibilities are endless.

Illuminates of Thanateros [Dec. 26th, 2008|10:54 pm]

If there are any London IOT members who would be happy to get in touch with me, please do. I have a few questions.

Edit: I understand there is a pact of secrecy. Nevermind. I'm waiting on the IOT to get back to me about becoming a Novice.

Anyway, I know the internet is a bit impersonal for this, but are there any chaotes in or around London that would be interested in getting to know one another? I'd like more real-life friends who are in the occultic current.

LJ friends will do, too :)

strange dreams [Sep. 17th, 2008|07:17 am]
UK Chaotes

I seem to be picking up not only my dreams, but those of my dogs and my husband and my nieighbors the last couple of nights. They make now sense and include people and places I have NEVER been to or seen before. I find it very diconcerting and confusing. I do sometimes pick up dreams of friends and families, but never so many at one for so long and in the same dream. I am pretty sure I have never chased small animals or snakes around before, but the colors are flat and the movemenet/motion exagerated. It is all very strange.

I have never had to worry about breaking the cycle before because it was always such a random event. I also don't like it because even though I don't know who the dreams belong to, I feel like a peeping tom in a way.

I have been doing a lot of mediating on the astral feeder on the back of my neck. I also have several friends and a separate circle doing the same. They do not know each other and I keep the info separate and I have not been posting until now to not influence the information.

All of them came and myself relate the entity and the illness as trying to stop my advancment partly towards strengthening spiritually as a teacher, but mostly towards preventing me from being a guardian of the gates or the portals.

I have to run, but I had a very significant dream after I realized and accepted this to be true last night. It is going to take a long time to post the dream with the owl, but it will clarify how important this work is.

You must read this. It is about Draconian/Saurian conspiracy. While you have been sleeping, this is what your biatch Discordia has been up to. :

If you would like to make Allah cry, chant mantras and do breath-counting exercises. Any polysyllabic mantra chanted outloud or within one's mind, constantly, will be fit for this purpose.
 
And say "Shankar" once a day
P.S. "If you see Allah on a road, just say: I am not afraid of you, no no no I am not."

The truth, a little 2 late [Mar. 23rd, 2008|01:01 am]

 Turns my evil sister has been lying a little. She is a Jihad Goddess. Supports no religion but Jihad. Captain Clark is some Saudi prince. 23 is an unlucky number, and 17 lucky, but only just. She did not start Discordian religion, she stole it from me and from Universal Reason. She does not like Zen-buddhists, she kills them in Tibet for bringing enlightenment into this world.

In short, do not trust Eris.
