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.

Can you drink khernips? + side question
« on: June 12, 2019, 09:32:07 pm »
I mean etiquette wise; if I was to drink it I would have made it with potable water and plant and be okay with a little char and the salt level or lack thereof.

Sorry, this is probably a stupid question. I'm newish to greek worship (unsure yet if Hellenism(/ic) will be a label I fully identify with) and something in me always tells me to take a sip and tbh I feel like I would feel better if I did.

Also, can you re-charge khernips? Like, using the same water but redoing the rest? Even just within the same day but not the same instance. This isn't super important but would be helpful in a pinch, and when my knees get worse, as I do my witch and pagan activities upstairs and there's no water there.* Continuing from that, do you (assuming it's not physically dirty) generally wash your vessel in between batches, or just empty it?

*I am planning to bring up a pitcher, but haven't figured out where to put it that it will stay clean and won't get tripped on

I've never heard of anyone drinking it. So long as you were careful to be sure the part of the plant you use isn't harmful, I suppose you could, however.

To be honest, this is  something I've never thought of. For me, its so easy to make (and making it is often a part of so many rituals), that I've never thought f reusing it. However, if your circumstances limit your ability to make it, I don't see any harm in reusing it provided one hasn't made it impure in one's previous use of it. Note, however, that this is just my personal opinion, I'm not sure what the gods would think about it.
