2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "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.

A combination of _Carpe Jugulum_ and perhaps _Witches Abroad_ would be a good way to go with that.  They both cover a lot of Granny's problem-solving, basic magical theory, and effectiveness.  (The voodoo doll scene in WA is an excellent example, actually.)

 
Ack!  More suggestions!  Oh, well.  I knew what I was getting into when I requested ONE Discworld book.

Thank you for the reminders of the library (my schedule is weird so I forget sometimes that not everything in my town closes at 5).  And also about Amazon used books, though now I'm torn between saving $ and supporting local economy.

Eeep! ButwaitGrannydidn'tevensayheadologyIcheckednow she said "per-si-cology"! :stop:

 
I just read Equal Rites and she did in fact talk about headology (and say the word) a number of times. I wonder if it is a version difference? I read it on Kindle.

I, uh... checked with a friend *hangs head* fellow rabid Discworld fan, who was very convinced that headology was first mentioned when the Lancre coven came together.

If I remember correctly 'persicology' was the first term and 'headology' later replaced it.

Well, Equal Rites is the only Discworld book I've read, so I know I'm not confusing it with another. Also, I looked it up, and it's in there multiple times. So I'm guessing an update was made in the Kindle version from the print books.
