Tena Regalo – excerpt from HFC2

Posted in Individuals / Members / Monsters / Creative Writing, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on November 7, 2016 by Drogo

After the ‘Forest Fight’ on Loud Heights, Tena Regalo flew back to her tree-house for a well earned rest. Tena, like all veterans of the skirmish, was badly in need of sleep and relaxation. Tena under-stood and over-stood all the conspiracies and chaos, but now she desired to with-stand those forces by recharging her spirit energy. There are many ways faeries recharge their magical energy; orbs, candles, herbs, incense, teas, prayers, spells, meditation, sleep, sex, singing, dancing, laughing, and having fun. Tena was about to begin a series of all these, which her Regalo family called ‘dark healing’.

Tena’s friend Tamie Bog called to her on the ether flute, asking if she could come over to visit. Ether flutes operate at higher frequencies than human flutes, and play notes that only certain faeries can hear. Winged fairies, pixies, and sprites all have their own octave ranges that they can hear and play, on magical flutes. The musical notes from faery flutes are so high pitched, that they transmit through the ethereal realms. [note: country folk pronounce Ether as ‘Aether’]

Tena listened to the full message that Tamie played, and it resonated in her heart from far away. Tena meditated on how she felt about having a visitor, and being with her friend again. Sage smoke and warm bath water allowed much of her nervous trauma to subside, and love desire began to pour into her being. She missed the simple pleasures of frolicking in the flowers with Tamie and her other friends. She missed the joy in their voices, the light in their eyes, and the gifts that they gave each-other. Tena was compelled by a sudden urge to reach for the ether flute, and call Tamie back.

Tamie Bog had a number of relatives, all named the same name. According to pixie tradition, if two pixies have the same name, the younger person must change the spelling of their name. Tamie’s mother was named Tame. Her female sisters and cousins were named a variety of variations; including Tamy, Tamey, Tami, Tammi, Tammy, etc. As you can imagine, the spellings became longer, and nick-names and magic names were used to distinguish one from another.

Candles glowed like the stars, reflected in the window glazing, as Tena picked up her ether flute, and played the notes that were only for Tamie…

Faery Architecture – from Harpers Faery Chronicles

Homes are often an important part of our life sagas. Also homes can tell stories through the architecture and art on the walls. Dwellings are places where stories are told and rigamaroles take place, which we interpret. Faery architecture uses organic shapes and natural materials, altered by magic.

Faery home shapes are traditionally round in various ways. Popular inspirations for circle plans with curved walls and domes include the Sun, the Moon, and tree trunks (cylinders). Ovals and ellipses are found also, like giant eggs.

Faery earth building materials are usually wood, stone, and mud. The mud is best applied as a mortar or stucco clay plaster. Wooden branches, sticks, rope, and décor are gathered from bushes, trees, vines, river reeds, meadow thatch, and wild flowers. Rock is often quarried or mined by dwarves or gnomes, and used to with or without wood or mud. Rock can hold wood, or be held by wood. These materials were used independently, or in any combination.

Faery style: ‘Round Rock, Round Mound, & Bound Bough’

Round – sun, moon, tree trunks, eggs

Wood – bushes, trees, reeds, vines, flowers

Stone – shale, lime-stone, and calcium-quartz

Soil – mud, clay, mound, berm, silt-gravel, sand

Faeries can build and live in more human types of buildings, and will still make their mark on them. Rectangular masonry, timber-frame, and half-timber structures may be modified to distinguish them physically as ‘fae’. One way is to add ‘eyes’.

Faery gypsies, pioneers, and scouts often craft make-shift structures that look like fallen branches or vine covered bushes. Moss is a very earthy plant, and lichen is an algae fungus; both of which are used along with ferns commonly on faerie mounds or berms.

Smaller faerie homes were often just hidden from sight; in trees, mounds, or under cliff rocks called mini-bluffs.

Review of ‘Harpers Faery Outlaws’

Posted in Book Reports with tags , , , , , on September 29, 2016 by Drogo

Critical Review of ‘Harpers Faery Outlaws‘ by Jack Madhard

Harpers Faery Outlaws was worse than the best critic could write, if they were trying to write a bad novel. It is not even full modern novel length, which is why I guess the publisher called it a ‘novella’. It is unclear whether the author was trying to be funny, confusing on purpose, or there were multiple untalented authors that just threw their stories together for the hell of it.

This book made we want to stop reading books, it was so bad. You may read it and say “it wasn’t too bad”, to which I would say “yes, yes it was”. I was bored with the book after reading the first word. Nothing can convince me that this book was anything else but total rubbish. A first grader could have done better.

Some of the characters may have been interesting, if I was born with only half a brain. The arrogance of this author, to presume that anyone would be interested in reading his writing is beyond belief. This book is bad, so terribly and inconceivably bad. I cannot say it enough times; this book is bad.

Tell all your friends not to read this book. Do not even buy it. If you borrow this book, promptly ‘lose’ it; I recommend burning this book. All respectable professional establishments should ban this filthy liberal attempt at advancing civil-rights through medieval metaphor. The author should be ashamed, if not executed for his crimes against humanity.

Next week, I will review a much better book, by a dear friend of mine, who will most likely invite me to parties. I may have to get a lobotomy to forget about reading this book by Drogo Empedocles. Anyway, as I always say, keep on reading (except for this book)!

Harpers Faery Types

Posted in Pagan, Spiritual, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on August 30, 2016 by Drogo

Types of Harpers Faeries

All faeries have magic and pointed ears. It is common for a faerie to be identified as more than just one type of fae, because of mixed blood and adopted cultural changes. For example an odd tree-elf might live underground with gnomes, and call itself a fairy by which it means pixie. Monsters usually include goblins, kobolds, trolls, centaur, and other mystical creatures; but it could be argued that they are also types of fae.

Fairy – fairy (with the ai spelling) is a term to refer to both pixies and sprites, which are small winged fae.

Nymph – nymph is a general term for faeries that are spiritually or elementally connected to specific individual natural areas, plants, or phenomenon. Nymphs include water-elves, solitary tree-elves (dryads), aerial fairies (sylphs), and fire faeries (daemons). Only fire and air nymphs can have wings. Nymphs are often isolated cults of female followers of the Goddess. Male nymphs are rare, so they often find other beings to mate with.

Elf – elf is a general term to refer to regular elves, noble-elves, fairy-elves, tree-elves, earth-elves, and water-elves. Regular elves do not have wings, and are between human and gnome size.

Noble-Elves are human-sized and look the most human of all the faeries, although their ears are still pointed. They do not like to be called human-elves, or half-elves on the whole, and call themselves Noble, High, or Tallest (their biology is half-elf, half-human even after generations of trying to exclude humans). Not even a Noble-Elf with a human parent will call themselves half-elf if raised by fae, as a matter of pride.

Fairy-Elves are half-fairy, half-elf; human-sized with wings, or pixie-size with no wings (brownies, pixie-elves, elf-sprites).

Tree-Elves are the smallest elves that prefer to live inside trees, or in houses on tree branches.

Earth-Elves are the only elves that can grow beards, that is why they are usually not called elves, and are referred to as Dwarves, Gnomes, and Leprechauns. Dwarves are usually half the size of a human, and Gnomes and Leprechauns are smaller than dwarves. Leprechauns are mix of tree-elves, pixie-elves, and gnomes that prefer the colors green and gold.

Haunted Faery Drum Circle

Haunted Faery Drum Circle 2013

Halloween Musical Party in Harpers Ferry, WV

fourways temple

Held at the Temple of the Four Winds (or Ways), a total of 14 people came together to share good vibes in various styles. Neighbors and friends from the surrounding area met from 8pm-12 Midnight the Friday before Halloween. 3 friends from Frederick Drum Circle stayed up all night around the stone camp-fire ring. telling stories and tending the sacred flame with mighty elm, nutty walnut, and wounded willow wood.

From Frederick Drum Circle came 3 powerful magi; Bran-Don Barn-Yard, Drumwise Ousse, and Drogo Empedocles; with drums, beaters, didges, and flutes. Linda Rago attended because she was a magical neighbor, and author of ‘Blackberry Cove Herbal’. Warren Eng appeared briefly to play Chinese medicine ball chimes. 2 other neighbors across the way showed up for a bit. Princess Puchala of the dark magic band Full Blush brought 2 mighty friends. The famous guitarist Ben Harrison showed up with 2 friends as well. Lastly, the legendary John Brown Kodiak arrived in time to rap some lyrics to a bluegrass-new-age epic jam session. A type of ‘New-Grass’ sound emerged, and resonated through the week to the Holy All Souls Night.

Linda Rago held a ‘Rune Reading’ session in the Temple for half of the gathering. However the half of the gathering remained centered around the Fire Ring, despite that it remained 40 degrees all night. The primal elemental energy around the Fire Pit created a magical energy, which fed all night, resonated and flowed the following week.

Several audio recordings were made featuring various musicians during the night; uploaded to Soundcloud and Youtube. They are simply meant as memory meditation guides, because Night Magick is impossible to capture. Yet somehow we recharge our spirit energy at the Well of Mimir, and the Flame of the Four Ways! Harpers Ferry has remained a favorite haunt of faeries, and to this day you can still hear their music, if you listen for it and follow it in your dreams.

New-Age Eclectic Pagan Bible  [see related article with links]

by Drogo Empedocles 2013

Multiple religious myths and spiritual magics for polytheistic Neo-Pagans

This book is a modern Eclectic Pagan Bible. It is the personal beliefs of Prophet Drogo Empedocles, and his interpretation of world religions, new-age philosophy, and neo-pagan magic. Polytheistic Celtic-Wiccan influence is finally proudly written here, in contrast to many Hebrew, Christian, and Muslim beliefs; because of their doctrines of cultural war against Pagans. As a handbook guide of holy Pagan scripture, this book is meant to be a shield and a sword for our faith, in the hands of the chosen guardians.

Eclectic-Pagan Celtic-Wiccan New-Age Bible

The word bible, is from the Greek word biblia, meaning simply books. According to religious tradition a bible is also a canon of holy scripture; an authoritative collection of rule books. The dominant rule of this bible is the proclamation of a new covenant with modern religion, culture, and individuals in the form of universal spirituality, and acceptance of unique personal magic. Most of the major religious rule books are now outdated guides. Please help spread the good news of the Pagan Bible!

In various religious and spiritual writings, we may find some answers; or at least stories we can relate to, and are helpful. We may also become upset or troubled by what we read. One curious pattern to notice about written history and other bibles, is how their texts ignore and degrade goddesses, women, and nature-based faiths in general. While mythical stories may be interesting, it is only through our own self-realized connection to civilization and nature that we may put ourselves in context with the true Universe. Remember we are not alone, even when we feel alone.

My name is Drogo Empedocles, and I am a faery. Well, part faery anyway. It is complicated, so I will explain my blood line later. I call myself a faery because fae magic is in my blood, and most of my friends are faeries of one kind or another. I wrote this as my bible, and it is based on my beliefs and my home town. I encourage everyone to write their own bible.

– Dr. Rev. Drogo F.H. Empedocles
