Hello Everyone!

Post  Barandos the Red on Wed Nov 14, 2007 11:19 pm

Hey all! I heard about this place from somewhere or other (I think maybe from a book; The Philosopher's Stone: A Quest for the Secrets of Alchemy by Peter Marshall I think) and decided to join (it was from the same book that I got interested in the art of alchemy). I'm 14 years old and really know next to nothing about alchemy apart from what I've read in the previously mentioned book and The Serpent Grail: The Truth Behind the Holy Grail, the Philosopher's Stone and the Elixir of Lifeby Philip Gardiner and Gary Osborn. I'm mostly fascinated by practical alchemy but I enjoy reading alchemical history as well. I joined in hope of widening my knowledge of it. Since I'm not an actual alchemist by any means I don't know if I'll be posting a great deal other than thanking others for interesting information and maybe prowl around the general chat forum as well. If I find something interesting about alchemy somewhere I'll be sure to post it though Smile

Ps. For anyone who's wondering, my name is derived from a boss enemy in the free role-playing game Laxius Power. (I just noticed how very trivial that sentence is, lol)

Welcome to the Site!

Glad to have you on board. Don't be afraid to post even if you feel new to all this stuff. No one is going to say you are an idiot (most of us here are that anyway)!

LOL

There is a practical alchemy section here so you might find what you seek in there, and if you don't just create a topic!

Hah. What's interesting, friend, is that few of us take the time to consider ourselves "alchemists." Pah, as if the Great Work requires a uniform and a secret handshake. You've been drawn here, and as long as you're willing to learn and internalize the data held within, you have tasted the Work, regardless of how you choose to associate. We've been often named and unnamed, we who haunt this pocket of data, and we invite you to share your tales, hear ours, and digest. Solve et coagulatio.

You are such a poet!

If only you'd empty your brain more often! Wink

Well, alchemists are all nice people... that is until they manage to actually create gold; then it's all women, fast cars and luxury hotel brunch meetings!
