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 13 Sept 2019: $656 donated. $6 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.

In Search of Ore

How would you find copper, tin, iron, gold, and other metals inside the Earth?

Or crystals, rubies, and gems for that matter?

Like dowsing for a well, perhaps?

I've never dowsed before in my life; I'm curious to find out how it works, and how to get better at it, and if it's only good for locating underground water sources, or if it can also be used as a metal detector of sorts.

Make some L-rods (see video):



Have someone hide a quarter in your yard (or other large grassy area) and leave the area so they don't accidently clue you in as to where it is.  Then try to dowse for it with your L-rods.  Practice makes perfect.

Do you work with deities? If so, I'd ask Pluto for help, he seems to be the go-to guy for stuff like that. Also for archaeological work!
"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
