B A S I C S

What Gods do you worship? I don't worship any god(s). I consider a working relationship different from worship. I consider it a mutual respect relationship.
Do you fear darkly aspected Gods/Goddess, or rather respect them? You're joking with me...right? Me and Baron Samedi drink each other under the table ALL THE TIME.
Do you worship the Christian God? No...because he's 5 years old and disrepectful (imo).

Nymphs? Yeah they're aboot.
Sprites? I consider them faeish.
