* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Writing Exercises and Prompts
« on: May 23, 2018, 08:29:43 pm »
I came across this site linked on our Jack's Tumblr, but since he didn't post it here, I will. Looks like there's all sorts of potentially-useful tools for writers there.

I'm the AntiFa genderqueer commie eclectic wiccan Mod your alt-right bros warned you about.
I do so have a life; I just live part of it online!

Lots of random generators there, one of which just proved that the universe has a sense of humor.  I've been stuck on a WIP in which two characters are discussing their views on the afterlife.  The random scenario generator came up with this: "Where would you like to go when you die? Describe your perfect afterlife."  ::)

Cool. I could get lost here instead of writing, though.   ;D
Spider Man 3 never happened. Change my mind.

Those are great!

I have been using this page with tons of Roleplaying Random Generators for ideas both for gaming and for writing...it tends towards fantasy worlds, but there are others tucked in there (there is a whole fandom inspired set...)

I particularly like the "a bunch of random objects" one...great for filling pockets!
Check out my Patreon for more writing and other goodies!
