After poking around the forum for a little bit, I couldn't help but notice one particular modern grimoire that seemed like a fan favorite. So I checked it out, found an archived digital copy. What a strange, strange book. It's written like a used car salesmen trying to sell you the Kabbalah. But the crazy part is that its actual material is super solid and I'm excited to use it!
I just got to the part where he describes the Middle Pillar Ritual. Definitely didn't expect that. My jaw dropped when I saw he'd included the non-barbarous parts of the Bornless Rite. This book is inexplicably cheesy, but packed with techniques based on actual tradition. Perhaps it's a holdover from the 70's when that style of writing was more in vogue. I don't know. But it's as amusing as it is instructional, for completely different reasons.
