  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.

  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    And if you run into those who do recite spells, start praying The Jesus Prayer immediately and incessantly because the only thing that can overcome such a demonic act is the name of Christ.

    I don't see how people can be so close minded about it. It's fantasy. The best genre of book there is. :p It's where imagination most runs wild and vivid. It's what I write. It's what I read. It's what I play. It's a story. It is not meant to be applied to real life.

    As an aside, I chanted a Wiccan spell about 2 or 3 years ago. :p Only because I thought it sounded cool. xD

    Do you understand that by chanting a wiccan spell you are inviting demonic activity into your life? A wiccan spell is a demonic prayer. Who do you want to pray to? God or the anti-god?

    I don't see how it is demonic. Well, depending on the spell.

    But I don't want to chant one again. That was a couple years ago anyways.

    Justin, all power in this world comes from one of two places. God is the creator of everything, and all power comes from him. But there is the other one, the one who denies God exists and who is quite powerful unto himself, but he only has power because God allows him to have it. These are the only two sources of power in the world, and they are exact opposites of each other. The anti-Christ is who wiccan spells are chanted to because they certainly are not chanted to Christ.

    I know you are talking about PnP here but have you tried any multiplayer on Neverwinter Nights? I've played lots of single player campaigns but haven't done any MP on it.

    No, I havent tried that game.

    I love MMOs, and will still play them, but I daresay I prefer tabletop!

    Neverwinter Nights is D&D 3.5 (I believe) and you can do multiplayer campaigns with one person being the DM. I'd love to just merge the two and play NWN around the table with a bunch of laptops. :D

    There are quite a few persistent world servers that people create and maintain as well as the great toolset that allows you to create your own maps and campaigns. Bah, I've just gotten too lazy to put pencil to grid paper.

    What particularly concerns me is this -

    1) You are interested in Orthodoxy, and hide it from your mom.

    2) You are interested in D&D, and hide it from your mom.

    3) Your mom finally links Orthodoxy with D&D.

    Oh, and Theo - here's the ref for you -

    I've been playing AD&D for years now and not once it occured to me that it could be satanic or whatever until friendly fundies (American AND Protestant, of course) opened my eyes - I still saw nothing satanic or whatever, I just saw fundies.
    As my spiritual father said: "D&D is sinful only if you actually believe those spells work. And if it becomes pornographic."
    I do not believe those spells work. Actually, they're only spells in the context of a game. As for pornographic... Let me just say that the closest thing to sex in my game was when one of my players had a fiancee.
    When someone approaches me and says dead serious: "I cast charm person on you" I may reconsider my position. But until then, D&D-is-this-and-that should stay where it belongs.
