* "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 simple game. Look to your right. The closest thing to you is now a ritual (or magical) object.
Describe what kind of ritual or spell it's used for!
(if the closest thing to you actually is a ritual object, pick something else.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The closest object to me is: a slate coaster.

This is used as an altar for invoking the micro-gods of the Microcosm, for which all tools and offerings must be as small as possible.

Closest thing: Corn bread and butterbean bowl
Used as offering to goddess divine of southern cuisine for whom all offerings must be BUTTERED and SALTED generously.

Closest thing is a pile of laundry, which I guess is an offering to the household gods Ken More and May Tag. Through these twin deities if water and heat, I shall enact an ancient purification ritual!

Pillow.  Used for contacting the god Morpheus.  Also can be used to protect your ears from neighbors who are too loudly contacting Dionysus.

It's actually a paper shredder. Take a wild guess....

Yeah you Christians have a reputation of wanting to shred every trail to pre-Christian gods. (I still love you Eric  ;) )

To my right is a cup of coffee. It is a highly potent beverage used to come in contact with the gods by transcending the more basic animal urges like sleep and murder. 
You're only given a little spark of madness, you mustn't lose it.

... that would be a toddler.

This one would be useful for invoking the complex interplay of the Hodge-Podge, I suspect, given their interactions with chaos and organisation.

It is a trackball; used for navigating the nether realm also known as The Internet and smiting evil graphic user interfaces into Oblivion.

 The closest object is a pair of glasses. They are used in a ritual that allows me to see things far away.

Makes sense.

Closest to me is an alarm clock.

This is to be smashed in a rite to prevent the Old Ones from waking from their slumber.

It's a small plastic standee of a sexy anime monster girl.

I am sure this could be used to house some goddesses--Echidna or Lilith, maybe--when it's necessary to call them down.

Mine would be a child's sing along microphone toy.  I'd have to call it some sort of wand that grants the user the ability to sing with child-like regard to their ability: absolutely none!

The TIVO remote - used for guided visualisations to enable the mind to travel far and wide, to places both geographically distant upon this world and to entirely imaginary worlds, to times long past and those in the distant future.

The closest thing on my right at this moment is actually another chair. I am using it in a ritual where I invite strange beings from distant realms to join in conversation and discussion...otherwise known as a "meeting invite". The "distant realms" may in fact be offices down the hall, but the "strange beings" term is entirely accurate....

Uh. It's a baseball. It's used in rituals invoking the blessing of the God of Sport and Summer, it blesses you if you are in the crowd and catch it during the summer solstice ball-game.
"The worshippers of the gods go to them; to the manes go the ancestor-worshippers; to the Deities who preside over the elements go their worshippers; My devotees come to Me." ... "Whichever devotee desires to adore whatever such Deity with faith, in all such votaries I make that particular faith unshakable. Endowed with that faith, a votary performs the worship of that particular deity and obtains the fruits thereof, these being granted by Me alone." - Sri Krishna
