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.

However, Judaism did eventually branch out into parts of the world more subject to wintry temperatures, and we do see some legends surrounding the spirits of cold  in later midrash: specifically, the idea that God left the northern corner of the world unfinished with the proclamation that anyone else who could finish it could declare themselves a true god. Naturally, no one ever finished it, and now "demons, winds, earthquakes, and evil spirits dwell" there.

It's interesting how traditions adapt to reflect new environments. Also that's a fascinating bit of mythology. I now want to do a story about somebody (or some entity) attempting to renovate the north corner of the world.

The Cauldron's server is expensive and requires monthly payments. Please become a Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor if you can. Donations are needed every month. Without member support, we can't afford the server.
