[quote=“Euoi, post:9, topic:2313”]“There is something primal, atavistic” spook factor. Most people use bones because it makes them feel like real honest to God necromancers.
But whether one wants to or not is up to the necromancer. I have no need for such things. And if I did, I’d probably dig up the grave myself. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m not to keen on the idea of receiving a random bone from some random spirit. Wouldn’t want a conflict of interest in necromancy.[/quote]
I see both sides of this argument.
I enjoy working with bone, my runes are bone as well as my bone set lol. I like having something that was once had a life force running through it, I’m also a fan of wood if you couldn’t tell by now. Spook factor plays no role in it for me, my altars are kept out of sight except for my ancestor altar which for all intents and purposes those not knowing what they’re looking at wouldn’t know what it is. I only speak of my practices to a handful of people and they do not know everything as they wouldn’t understand.
I see Euoi’s point as well especially in regards to getting fetish items off the Internet. All the bones I use for reading are animal bones, I have no problem using those but to use the bones of a person much like graveyard dirt I’d like to know who I’m getting the items or dirt from, building a relationship and respect along the way.
