* "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.

Does this sound like a familiar God? (Black Marble God)
« on: October 15, 2012, 12:53:15 pm »
About two years ago I had a dream of this strange looking male. Could just be a random dream that means absolutely nothing, but I felt pulled to this image. I've never been able to figure out "who" it is, if it even fits a description of any such God out there. So, if this description sounds familiar, who is it? If not.... it must have just been a dream ;)

Anyway, the male I dreamnt of was very tall. He was naked but his body was made out of black marble (at least that's how it looked), but was almost shiny too. Very muscular, exuded a lot of male power and had an almost sexual energy to him. Eyes were black. He never spoke, it was like he was trying to communicate with me by just the energy he was putting off.

Thank you if you're able to help at all!

Czernobog? Only because the name means "black god" (Slavic origin, lore seems scarce and much-modified so difficult to tell if the black god was also an almost-sex god.)

Will have to look into that, thank you very much :)

Another approach that might go somewhere is looking into gods who have been or often were represented in black stone itself.

Basalt is I think more likely than marble, given the unmarked case of marble tends to be white.  (Though the photo I just found of the Winged Victory of Samothrace looks like it was probably black.)

For me, it rather sounds like the mayan god Ek-Chuah also known as "the black god" or god "M"
He is usually depicted as a dark brown or black deity, with black ripped eyes and a big nose and he was the god of merchants and warriors.

Well.. hope it helps, even just a bit...
