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.

New-Age Testament & Neo-Pagan Scripture

by Drogo Empedocles 2013

Introduction

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. This Pagan Bible includes stories about the magical town of Harpers Faery, and is a combination of historic-fiction, occult magic, and autobiography.

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 Neo-Pagan Bible is the proclamation of a new covenant with ancient religions, modern Paganism, culture, and individuals in the form of universal spirituality, and acceptance of unique personal magic, and our diverse environments within the Universe. Most of the major religious rule books are now outdated guides. Please help spread the good news of the Pagan Bible!

The word pagan, from Latin paganus, means “rural country folk”. Paganism usually refers to religions or beliefs which are polytheistic or indigenous (non-Christian). Within Paganism are categories such as polytheism, shamanism, pantheism, or animism. Neo-Paganism is the revival of the ancient old ways, adapted in a new way for our modern times. There are many important reasons for this “New-Age” movement, but perhaps most of all Neo-Paganism exists because Mother Earth deserves some respect again, more than ever before!

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. History happens to real people everyday (before it becomes history). This Bible supports polytheism, faerie equal rights, and bloody swear words; in addition to conventional biblical morality and multicultural ethics. This is my Bible.
