THE D.Y.O.G. (dig your own grave) RITE
by Sorors Mfecane.888 and Nefarious.000
Created as a sort of Mass of Thanatos, the purpose of this ritual
is to invoke the entropic/death aspect, otherwise known as the god
"Thanatos." The entropic force will later be used to create
and cast a "sigiltor" (sort of a cross between a sigil an d
a servitor, to be explained later) for the purpose of introducing
entropy to a system/situation of the operator's choice.
During this Mass, each participant will be invoking the godform,
rather than one sole operator. The entropy invoked during this rite
will be focused into a Saturnine oil with which the sigiltor will be
anointed. It is suggested that this oil be pre pared beforehand with
herbs of an entropic nature. Each operator will prepare a sigil of
their desire beforehand to be drawn in Saturnine oil on a provided
piece of tissue paper during the Sigiltor rite.
It is suggested that the statement used be along the lines of
"I wish to introduce entropy into.......(desired
situation)." This ritual is best performed outdoors in an
environment where the operators may dig graves in the dirt.
Statement of intent: "It is our will to invoke Thanatos into
this Saturnine oil."
1. Each operator will dig a small "grave" for themselves
in the ground. This is symbolic rather than actual, no need to dig six
2. Operators lie down in their graves face up, arms crossed over
the breast in a death-like position.
3. Visualize the godform of Thanatos approaching while the
invocation is recited. The form may be visualized in any way the
operator sees fit, we each have our own individual death.
(This may be stated by the main operator alone, by all the
participants together, or all operators may join by merely stating the
chorus of "Thanatos" after each word. The invocation may be
added to by the insertion of any words the operator(s) feel correspond
The portals are open to the death force
on this Hallow's Eve.
(Et cetera). Thanatos.
4. Still lying on your back, assume the death posture. This may be
done easily enough in this position, simply take a deep breath and
place your hands over your eyes, covering the nose, mouth, and ears as
5. When Gnosis has been reached and the posture held no longer,
burst from it and focus the Thanatic force toward the oil which is
located in the center of the ritual space.
6. Without banishing, the Sigiltor rite immediately commences:
THE SIGILTOR RITE
by Soror Mfecane.888
During this rite, the operators will be creating a
"Sigiltor." This being may be described as something between
a servitor and a sigil. It has a certain amount of sentience, but its
life force will expire once its one deed is done. The material base
for this "Sigiltor" will be a small slip of tissue paper, on
which the operator will draw a sigil of their desire with the
Saturnine oil charged in the D.Y.O.G. Rite. The purpose of the
sigiltor should be entropic in nature, the sigil being a
representation of the situation or system into which the entropy of
the servitor is being introduced. In other words, use it against
something you want to see wind down or die.
Statement of intent: "It is our will to create and cast a
Sigiltor of entropy."
- Each operator uses the Saturn oil to draw their sigil on a piece
of tissue paper. (Also, the Sigiltor may be accessorized with any
link which the operator desires.)
- Holding the tissue paper up above the back of the head,
visualize the Sigiltor as a glass ball containing great amounts of
entropic force, and ONLY entropic force. On the surface of the
glass, visualize the sigil you have written on the tissue pa per.
- As the gnosis builds from this image concentration, allow the
energy to flow from your hands into the Sigiltor, which should be
waving slightly above the head. When the moment is right, release
the Sigiltor, allowing it to fly away without watchi ng its
course. At the moment that the Sigiltor is released, visualize the
glass ball entering the situation and exploding to release the
- Banishing by laughter.
THE RITE OF RENDING
by Soror Tralfamador.3000
The idea of this rite is to first evoke, then destroy a personal
demon. We are a conglomerate of individuals trapped in one physical
body. Some of these personalities we like and some we don't. Of those
that are disagreeable, some are necessary an d some are detrimental
(your very own demon). The trick here is to find one of the harmful
aspects of your personality and destroy it for all time. Be careful of
that which you wish to destroy!!! For example, what may appear as
harmful may in fact aid you in accomplishing what you desire.
Statement of Intent: "It is our will to destroy our
- Choose your demon. Write down a few words which describe it. Be
concise, yet precise.
- Live your demon. Concentrate intently on the words you have
chosen. Read them aloud over and over until you can no longer even
remember their meaning. In larger spaces, it is encouraged to act
out every facet of your demon. Alternatively, you may wish to
visualize an object, person, or animal which represents it. Become
- Randomize your demon. When adequate gnosis has been attained and
you are your demon, count out the number of syllables of all words
which you had written down. Roll a multiple sided die (ie. 4, 6,
8, 10), or a combination thereof, in order to randomly choose a
number which corresponds to the number of syllables in your words.
Thus, if you have ten syllables in your combined words, and you
roll an "8", then count each syllable, and single out
the eighth one.
- Create a Demonic Egregore. The MO should roll a multiple sided
die which corresponds to the number of participants. Counting
widdershins, whoever is chosen should spell out their syllable.
Continuing widdershins, each participant spells out their
syllable, until the circle has been completed. After all have been
written down, a new word has emerged. This is the representation
of all our demons, crunched together in one. If there are many
participants, the MO may choose to break the word into two or
three parts, if desired. Hishi begins to chant the name over and
over. Others should join in. Continue chanting while visualizing
this newly created demon. The MO should jot down the word on a
piece of paper for each participant.
- Invocation: "Demon _________, We call you by your secret
name. Come Kali, Come Tiamat, Come Set. We invoke these selves
upon you. Kalitiamatset, the secret name of the demon is
_________. Bind it with the chains of iron. Pierce its joints with
knives of iron and render it asunder!"
- Kill your demon. Whilst envisioning the egregore being torn
asunder, every participant should rip their paper into little
bits. Screams of agony and pain are encouraged. Feel the demon
being ripped from your psyche.
- Banish by laughter.
THE GRAND RE-OPENING OF RAROHENGA by Frater
This ritual is based upon the Maori myth of how death became
permanent. Stated briefly, Rarohenga is the Maori underworld. It is
ruled by the goddess Hine nui te Po, which means Goddess of the great
night. It was this goddess who slew the tricks ter-demigod Maui.
Before the death of Maui, the door to Rarohenga swung both ways, so to
speak. Man was effectively immortal, but was bound to leave the
mundane world at some pre-designed point in life and journey to
While all mankind had to make his home there from that point on, an
individual could journey back to the mundane world from time to time,
and those who hadn't yet had to relocate to Rarohenga could journey
there for a visit if they were so inclined. Maui decided to put an end
to this, and went to Rarohenga while Hine nui te Po slept.
He changed himself into a green caterpillar and attempted to crawl
into Hine's vagina, intending to burrow through her body and emerge
from her mouth. This would have slain the goddess, and released
humankind from the necessity of ever going to the underworld at all.
Unfortunately for Maui, he had taken four bird-god companions with
him; these were Tiwaiwaka (fantail), Miromiro (grey warbler), Tataeko
(whitehead) and Pitoitoi (robin). As he crawled into Great Hine,
Tiwaiwaka began to laugh a t the sight. This awakened the goddess, who
clamped her vagina down on Maui and destroyed him.
From this point onward, it became impossible to enter or leave
Rarohenga without either actually dying or at least knowing some very
powerful karakia (Maori spells). The purpose of this ritual is to
evoke Tiwaiwaka at the moment just prior to his lau ghing, and to stop
him from causing Maui's death. In doing so, the participants seek to
retroactively reopen the doors of Rarohenga. To aid in the necessary
visualizations, a brief description of the entities involved is
Maui: Visualize him in the form of a small green
caterpillar, about an inch long, with its head disappearing into the
vagina of Hine nui te Po.
Hine nui te Po: A hideous feminine giant, about eleven feet tall,
sleeping on the ground with her legs splayed carelessly. She has the
body of a human female, with seaweed for hair, eyes made of green
stone, and the mouth of a barracuda. Surround ing these two are four
birds, as above. It is not necessary to know exactly what all four
look like; use your imagination.
Tiwaiwaka will be portrayed by one of the participants. Wherever
that individual stands, Hine nui te Po's head is visualized as in
front of them.
0. Statement of intent: "It is our will to reopen the barrier
between this world and the underworld, Rarohenga."
1. The participant who portrays Tiwaiwaka takes a step forward
toward the center of the working area. Camvang should have been
selected beforehand, and bears some token to connect camvang to
Tiwaiwaka (a feather, a rubber beak...).
2. All visualize as strongly as possible the scene described above.
While doing so, they chant in a barely audible voice this karakia, in
either English or Maori:
|Te Po nuit
Te Po roa
Te Po uriuri
Te Po kerekere
Te Po tiwha
Te Po tangotango
Te Po te kitea
||The great Night
The long Night
The dark Night
The blackest Night
The gloomy Night
The Night only felt
The unseen Night
Keep in mind that Hine nui te Po is a notoriously light sleeper. In
all manner conduct yourself as if you were desperately trying not to
wake someone up.
3. After they feel that a sufficient point has been reached, each
participant stops chanting. Tiwaiwaka takes a second step forward, and
begins to act as if camvang were trying to prevent camvangself from
4. The participants, having been provided with ropes or string of
some type, tie up and gag Tiwaiwaka, while repeating:
TAXCHASI WOJITJAX DUBWONG (Shut up foolish bird!)
5. Tiwaiwaka falls to the ground. Maui is visualized as crawling
out of Hine's mouth; this is the sign that Rarohenga is opened. As
each participant successfully visualizes, they should fall into some
type of death posture or trance whilst concentrating on their personal
image of an underworld until gnosis is reached. Use a statement of
intent beforehand, giving voice to your reason for performing this
THE RITUAL OF RESURRECTION
by Frater Damien.939
The purpose of this ritual is to bring to life one of our many selves
that we've seemed to have lost along the way, or create a new one that
we may find beneficial. For example, being too positive may not be a
good idea, thus your purpose would be t o invoke a negative-self. And
the same goes for being too negative... It is wise to be sure that
this self will be beneficial to you, however.
Introduction & Materials Needed:
The idea of this ritual is to search out a person, animal, or object,
etc., that holds an excessive amount of the kind of energy you may
want. For example, say that Frater Doggie-Style.414.5º has many great
sexual abilities. He, then, is the person you'll need to visualize
during the ritual if you are seeking to be more agile with some
particular sexual exercises. Be sure to sigilize what it is that you
want out of the ritual, and have it already pre-prepared. You may also
make a fetish, or some such thing, to symbolize your desire as well...
Whatever you do, don't be creative-NOT!
Statement of Intent:
"It is our / my will to invoke this new self!"
(Visualize the person, animal, or object strongly while executing the
statement of intent).
0) Begin by crying "HUT!"
1) Staring deeply at your sigil, meditate on what "self"
it is that you wish to invoke. Visualize yourself with the attribute
you desire in a situation where it would be utilized.
2) After a few moments are spent on the meditation begin the
mantra: "DANW BELTL YOM!"
3) Continue the mantra and begin spinning widdershins while at the
same time visualizing your person/animal/object of your intent
descending on you from above.
4) After spinning widdershins and chanting the mantra until gnosis
is built, imagine the person/animal/object you're invoking getting
closer and closer to you from above . . . as soon as you become dizzy
from doing the widdershins and thus eventually falling to the ground,
visualize the person/animal/object you're invoking being absorbed into
your body as you hit the ground.
5) Banish with Laughter.

BLESSÉD DARKNESS by Zabriella.729, Novice
Blesséd Darkness, Creature in the Wind
Empty Sand Empty Sea Empty Cave
Everything gone and it never existed
I flew on and on
My mouth full of Blood and Fathomless thirst
Like a barren shore needs the sea
But the blood was the Blood
And the Luscious heart beat the love
I can swallow his life
Take it in me...
The calling meant nothing over howls of the Wind
And the Pain that is nothing is dissolving veils
of silence fallen lone bird on the sea random sigils of desire cold
white fingers reaching out to touch
Chaos Dark Ways - Liber Nox
Tremor of pain heartache & havoc shadows and
torchlight fierce in the firelight
deep in the chamber broke loose the earth
silent the crypt & sacred grave soil of the cemetery such sweet
a lone bird and beauty always holds sway.
CATHARSIS: A SYSTEMATIC BREAK DOWN AND
RE-CREATION OF THE SELF By Soror Mfecane.888
At this time, E.P.I.C. Temple has embarked upon a journey of
Catharsis. For an indefinite period of time, we will be performing a
sequence of rituals and workings designed for the Catharsis of the
individual. The word Catharsis refers to an emotional upheaval and
transformation. In this context, we use it to refer to a period of
complete change and transformation. Any serious transformation will
induce emotional effects, hence the use of the word
"Catharsis" for this working.
The Catharsis Working is a systematic breaking down of the self
through continuous ritual work on a personal and group level. The
intent is to get down to the layers beneath the things we magicians
are always destroying within our psyche, hence taking away not only
the undesired self-aspects, but also the hidden aspects which feed
them. This allows for a more thorough banishing of the destroyed
aspects and more permanent overall results.
Many rituals are designed for the destruction of unwanted aspects
of the self, but few of them are able to get down beneath the aspect
itself and kill the foundation upon which it feeds. For this to be
done successfully, it is my opinion that a continuous process of such
work is necessary.
The Catharsis Working will include the regular performance of group
rituals of a change inducing nature as well as personal works on an
individual basis. Habit destroying and random belief will also be
employed. During the process of Catharsis, the creation and
manifestation of new aspects will also occur via rituals and works
designed for such. This working will lay the groundwork for a more
stable and effective laying of new bricks within the self.
CATHARSIS WORKING 1 by Soror Nefarious.000
This rite is to launch a period of cathartic workings. It focuses
on the destruction of the obsessive ties with symbols that develop
within everyone. It may be repeated as necessary. Before the ritual is
done, symbolic items for each participant w ill need to be chosen,
preferably by someone else. Also needed for the rite is a box of a
1. Statement of intent: "It is our will to begin the work of
catharsis by calling upon Saturnian energy and destroying these
2. Present symbols. After the symbol is presented to each
individual, they tell of the first time they feel that they may have
become connected to or identified with it.
3. A box has been prepared bearing the sigil of Saturn plus any
other such related symbols desired. Blood is extracted from each
participant by any means agreed upon previously, and rubbed or dripped
upon the box. As this is done the following is said:
"I shed this first skin."
The symbols are placed in or around the box.
4. The invocation is said by as many participants as is desired.
(Yes, at least one should say it).
Invocation of Saturn:
Hail to you Saturn
God of death and entropy
This is the death of this part
CHUFOX FACH LOHIXOZ LYT

(Saturn I invoke thee
I am thee at each moment I die
I fall to entropy, chaos
All moves from and to chaos
With each minute I am reborn
I, Saturn, will of death)
(The next part everyone must say) ONGO: AP (Do it: change)
The invocation is said as many times as desired. During this,
movement of the body is begun, becoming more random as the invocation
5. At the culmination of the invocation, (this can be individual),
the death posture is assumed, visualizing void.
6. Symbols are destroyed with laughter: Thus a double banishing. A
suggestion: afterwards participants speak as if one another were dead.
THE NEGENTROPICK TEAPARTY by Frater
Introduction: Boiling the Water and Invitin' Friends
"The level of entropy is the degree of disorder
in a given system. This is the reverse of the degree of information
that is present. Hence negentropy is the build-up of information,
increase of meaning." E.E.Rehmus
"There is a growing tendency in any closed part
of the universe... for disorder (called `entropy') to expand at the
price of order (called 'negentropy')." G.Zukav
The following ritual is intended to facilitate negentropick
expansion in one's general field of experience. Basically,
meaning/information = negentropy and confusion/static = entropy. When
events occur `out of the blue' in a curiously negative, concurrent,
and unexplainable sequence it is entropy expressing itself. Negentropy
(negative-entropy), the reverse of this process,
would be the addition of information to the system, and perhaps
increase the possibilities of anticipating disaster and unwanted
experiences in order to make the necessary changes to avert them.
The ritual employs a "Negentropy Teabag", which will be
used in conjunction with a daily enchantment mantra for the duration
of the working. One possible monogram for the purposes of the rite is
made up of the symbol for Mercury (communication and information),
Libra (balance and adjustment), and Thurisaz (the catalyst of change
and directed force).
||Patient: "What is medicine for my entropick ills?"
Doktor: "It is Orange, in Scale, with Thorn."
In a Temple situation, stones are prepared with the sigil engraved
upon them. These stones will be put in any liquid to be imbibed as a
sacrament for the Negentropy Enchantment Mantra. The ritual also uses
an elixir sacrament made of a Vodka base with Yarrow, Red Sandalwood,
and Star Anise to consecrate the stones and begin the working. The
ingredients used in this Elixir are traditionally attributed to the
divined "cure" as stated above.
000. All participants yell or scream as loudly as possible whilst a
visualization is built up of a static electrical field surrounding
themselves, becoming so thick as to cause suffocation. (This
visualization may be assisted by each participant thrashing about
sluggishly in the working area.)
00. The main operator yells "FOTCHPANG!" (Order!) and all
participants cease the scream, visualizing as they do that the level
of static has lessened dramatically or ceased altogether at the cry of
0. Statement of Intent: "It is our will to reverse the effects
of entropy from within and from without, and to consecrate these
stones as Negentropick Teabags."
1. Invocation (said aloud by all):
We herald the remission of Entropy!
A lifestyle of decay and confusion is at an end!
Information springs forth into us!
We invoke the Courage
to terminate that which is not in our design
We invoke the Wisdom
to see the Force of Entropy for what it is:
Events that control our living of Life in restrictive ways
We invoke the Strength
to repel the stasis of our Will!
2. Add raw ingredients to Vodka in a cup. Stir (with wand) and
DINTHOQAF FACUPA DIBONGOF!
(Empower this Elixir with my Will!)
3. Plunge dagger into cup and shout:
(Shape this Elixir!)
4. Chant the Negentropy Enchantment Mantra with single-minded
attention as the mixture is poured through a filter paper with the
sigil drawn upon it, over the stones, which sit in a bowl to catch the
RECEB AP JUNAWAH SINCAGAD
(Come change that rejects the attack of Entropy)
Continue the mantra until this is completed. This mantra will be
used in future, when using the Negentropy Teabag (the stone itself)
5. The Elixir is then passed to all participants and drunk from the
bowl. The stones are then taken up by each for later use, unlike most
traditional teabags. (When used later, the stone is held high overhead
and the NEM recited loudly. The Negentropy Teabag, or stone, is then
placed into the bottom of a glass and any liquid chosen poured over it
and drunk. Alternatively, the stone may be sucked on, rather than
immersed in a liquid, for sperm-of-the-moment needs.)
|0b. Laughter banishing, and of course
toast or crackers.
NOVICE PROTOCOL POSITION PAPER by some EPIC
The position of Novice is a first step toward membership within the
Pact. This period acts as a preliminary screen or filter by which
Initiates of the Pact may gauge the potential of aspiring candidates
be they separated by geography or participation . Though not yet
initiated as a sibling, the Novice is inter- active with the Pact and
therefore is entrusted with certain information which is not to be
considered for public consumption. In main, the relationship of the
Novice with the Pact is through his/her Mentor. It is a position in
which information (mostly in the form of the magical record) is passed
from the Novice to the Mentor. It may be necessary that the Novice is
given certain information, such as particular rituals, workings, and
business which may pertain to or affect the Novice and/or the Working
Group s/he is connected with.
To use an analogy, the Pact is a polygamous/polygynous marriage in
which the Novice would be considered a fiancé. Just as a fiancé is
entrusted with a certain amount of information which would not be
shared with a complete outsider of the family, yet is not given access
to knowledge of inner family issues, so also does the Pact share with
the Novice certain pieces of information which are to be considered
somewhat guarded though not inner Pact issues.
In the case of the Novice, this information may or may not include
Pact rituals and workings, the identities of members the Novice may be
corresponding with, position papers and related information which may
involve reference to Temple or Pact business that would effect the
Novice or the Working Group, and any other information which may be
considered personal to the Novice's Mentor. This information may be
shared with the Novice where the necessity is felt, but should not be
passed from the Nov ice to any person or organization not in active
affiliation with the Pact.
