I am compiling some lists in the crypt that will be added to a book each list will have pics and history for each entry. please take a look and see if you think it will have merrit for any of you. the goal is a book that you can open find a topic and have the information needed to craft a story or routine with little research on your part. this is going to be a long process for me and I would appreciate any input on it.

Those are great. will need to locate more to fill the section. from the looks of what I'm finding it looks like this may be a huge book or a few books. I will need to trace each item to its source, get pics and back up for them then arounge them in order of occurrence.

this could be really fun.

I may not have access to the crypt yet, but I believe the information there is overwhelming. So thank you so much for the compilation.

Well, I think that splitting them into a few books would be better and more efficient. And when you are finally done, you can then compile them into a much large book. Just my 2 cents.

Your work is much appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for all your time and effort.

couple other topics:
Urban Legends
Psychological Experiments e.g. David Reimer, Stanley Milgram, Little Albert, Carney Landis

I would recommend the "Gale Encyclopedia of the Unusual and Unexplained" to you and anyone interested in your project. It's a great set with lots of info and ideas.

Ok here comes the hard part. should this list be on here? or in pdf for download. or should it be in book form. ?
I am asking because book form would actually cost money to produce. if the interest is there then it can be done. the list needs t9o be edited and cleaned up. pics added to each item where relevant so that they can be added directly into the act. if it goes into book form then it will be many books each topic its own book.
example....
THE LIST, WITCHES
famous witches through out history, the witch trials, ancient spell books, death by witchcraft, murdered for being a with and so on.

this type of list is what I use when researching for a routine. I gather everything I can then sort it. pick my witch and develope the story using the items from the list. this keeps it realistic and believable for the sitters.

Maybe it would be a good idea to create a Google Doc and then give contributors access to edit/add entries? It can be continually updated, printed, etc. and it might be easier to keep organized? Just a thought. Smile
