Winging It

By Samael Anathan Lets start somewhere near the beginning, the term otherkin refers to someone who thinks they have a non-human soul, or spirit. Personally I believe that this thinking is a bit skewed and see the term merely as a label that the physical brain needs to understand things. As otherkin individuals believe themselves […]

The Beast: from Energy-feeders’ Perspective

The Beast: from Energy-feeders’ Perspective

Many often point out how our experiences are varied however, it’s also important to note there are a lot of similiarities between sangs, eros, psi, and hybrids.

Vampirism

Vampirism By Damien Ferguson and Rei What are vampires? Vampires have existed forever and more than likely always will.
