I found this bbs by google.

Great.

I don't know much about magic or the occult, but interested in learning.


Here's a question that has been bothering me for a day or two from another forum on the net.

there are two men walking down the same path, they dont know each other but are travelling in the same direction.

they are both confronted by a group of demons, you see this happening and you do what?

I don't know how to answer this question, or what to read to answer it correctly.

Any ideas on how I should answer or research this question?

Welcome to the Cauldron!

I'm sorry, but I don't understand what point the question is supposed to serve.  Is it intended to be a riddle?  A moral question?  A question about how to deal with the demons in magical terms?  Something else?  How to answer it may depend partly on that.

It just seems like a really open-ended question (i.e. not one that has a "correct" vs. "incorrect" answer) with a lot of kind of odd random details thrown in (does it matter if they know each other or what direction they're walking?), so...  it's a really odd thing to be looking for some sort of definitive answer about, to me.

Welcome to The Cauldron!  Unfortunately, I don't see the purpose of the question as the likelihood of a group of demons deciding to bother two strangers on the road/path/trail seems extremely low (making this one of those questions like "the sun is going nova in an hour, what do you do?"). Demons have better things to do.

Welcome to the Cauldron!

And it sounds like the person asking this had been reading Terry Brook's latest, IMO.  I've never found a bunch of demons in the road, and if I did, I'd probably be too busy going "AHHHHHHHH!" to do anything intelligent to help someone else anyway!

Aside from the fact that I prefer "Eeeeeeeee!", I agree.  Wink

I have no idea.

I'm learning about servitors, so I asked around on the net and this is what I get..

Huh?

People gave you that when you asked about servitors?

I'd ditch the riddle,a nd the people who handed it to you. Smiley
