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.

Hi! I'm very very new to the Hellenic society, and I follow Hades. I've read through this thread and it's all good advice! But I'm having trouble communicating with Him, maybe He doesn't want to hear me? :C

Recall that one of His primary epithets is "the Hidden One."  Also, one of the primary canonical characteristics of the Good Counselor is that He is constantly overworked--too busy to party, too busy to visit Olympos, to busy to enjoy most of the perks of being a God.  He's diligent, and has a jurisdiction and duty vaster, arguably, than anyone else in His pantheon.  He is also, with the possible exception of the thing with Minthe, the only faithful husband of all of the Hellenic Gods.

The All-Hospitable One is careful, methodical, often quiet, and very, very busy, but/and He keeps His promises meticulously.  If you're patient, and you display similar reliability, work ethic, and diligence, you'll make it onto His docket eventually.

I understand that, I might just be a bit hasty. And I agree, He is the only faithful husband.

You're right, thanks! I will try my best to be honest, reliable and true to Him. C:
