* "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.

Insight on Orion Foxwood
« on: June 08, 2015, 06:23:38 pm »
I saw an interview of Orion Foxwood on youtube and am wondering if he a good author. I haven't seen many reviews of his books, seen his books in book recommendation videos, or bookcase tours.

That rather depends on what you're looking for.

Foxwood's stuff is a very specific thing, dealing with a very specific model of the universe (realms of being and the nature of the self/souls) and a very specific set of entities (partially folkloric and partially spirit-taught fairy folk).  If that is the stuff someone is dealing with, then he is totally the go-to guy for that stuff.  If that is not the stuff someone is dealing with, then he's not going to be any bloody use.

Thank you for replying. I love folklore and was wondering if what he wrote was real folklore or something he cobbled together. I found a blog that reviewed one of his books on Fairy Seership after I started the thread.
