How to play


  • Credit: TimeFault, though unclear if he was OP.
  • This ritual is very similar to Three Kings and I thought some of you may find it interesting.
  • The original source highlights the importance of having a charged phone and a friend who is willing to do what’s needed.
  • You should avoid doing this while under the influence of any substances, including alcohol.
  • North is the most likely to have optimistic outcomes, although it’s still 50/50. East is difficult and may leave you with more questions than answers. West may cause depression and paranoia, but it may be worth it. Never face your ritual South, it’s dangerous and not worth it.
  • You should make sure a friend knows to call you the following morning, or is willing to come around and check you’re okay.


  • 1 candle, ideally black.
  • A bowl.
  • Some sort of container that has been used for eating.
  • A scoop of dirt/sand/gravel – a natural material sourced from the ground.
  • A cup or contained that has been used for drinking.
  • A closable jar/container with a removable lid.
  • A large mirror.
  • An object made of silver.
  • A chair.
  • A compass.
  • A fan.
  • A ruler/yardstick.
  • A bottle of water.
  • A book.
  • A sterile needle/pin.


  • You need an empty room. Place the unlit candle in the centre.
  • Use the compass to find where North lies. This determines where you will put the ritual items. See the notes section for details on the expected experiences for each direction.
  • Your candle, representing fire, should be facing in your chosen direction (N/E/S/W).
  • Place the silver object, representing the astral plane, 16 inches south from the candle.
  • Place the cup 16 inches south of the silver object and fill with one scoop of dirt (representing earth, obviously).
  • Take the bowl and place it 16 inches west of your silver object, filling it with water to represent…yep, you guessed it.
  • Take your closable jar and place it 16 inches east of your silver object, representing air.
  • Place the silver object, representing the astral plane, 16 inches south from the candle.
  • Once your four points have been set up you should choose the direction in which you want to face and kneel before your altar facing that way.
  • Prop the mirror up and set it in front, facing you, exactly 4 feet away.
  • The chair should be placed to your left, 4 feet away from the ritual object it is closest to.
  • The book should be to your right, 4 feet from the ritual object it is closest to and should be opened to page 48. It should be placed paper side down on the ground.
  • The fan should be to your south and switched on, again 4 feet from its closest ritual object.
  • Once all of this is done you are almost ready to begin, but do not light the candle yet.
  • Leave the room with the light switched on and the door closed.
  • You must be asleep before midnight on the night you set this up and an alarm should be set for 4am. The original source states this is because the sun will be in the 4th quadrant of your sky by then.
  • When you wake up you should closely check your set up for any changes. If the door to the set up room is open then abandon your ritual, if the altar has been moved around then don’t proceed. Most importantly check the dirt and water set up – are they in the correct places? Is the dirt in the cup? Is the water in the bowl? If anything seems amiss then trust your instincts. You will need to leave the house overnight to be safe before dismantling the altar.
  • If all is fine then you should grab your phone and prepare to begin.
  • Turn off the lights, close the door and light the candle.
  • The next part is what makes this so dangerous. You will need one drop of your own blood to go onto the silver object.
  • Once this is done kneel with the palms of your hands on the floor in the 4 feet of space between the fan and its closest object and stare at the silver object (not the mirror!). You need to be patient and whatever you do, do not fall asleep!
  • Any visitors you have should be gone with the arrival of daylight, although this is not always the case with East and if you face South it’s not clear whether you will even make it until morning. If you do, then you will be haunted and hunted for the rest of your life.
  • Now, check your windows.

Set up

Safety first

  • Blood magic is bad.
  • Placing a mirror in front of you while invoking a spirit is very bad.
  • Pricking your finger is ouchy.

Risk Level

Dependant upon which way you face. But medium to high as setting up incorrectly could be dangerous.
