We were talking about the nature of devices such as Ouija Boards and just who, or what, the entities that are encountered by users are. Are they the spirits or souls of the dead? Are they demons? Perhaps they are interdimensional beings?
Jeff made the following comment after which I requested that he expand a bit:
“I have extensive experience in communication devices. Ouija, Ziriya, pendulum boards etc.
I have gained some degree of trust with a couple of these things and they informed me that they are not dead people. They were never people. They were always what they are. And, somehow they have the ability to know intimate things about people thereby convincing them that they are dead relatives or passed friends and such. I shun away from the word demon because they aren’t all so bad but many of them are quite mischievous and will lie in order to convince you of their false identity. And, yes… they will know things that only you and that person would have known.
Just be careful and know what you’re reallyworking with.” ~ Jeff
I was asked by the Caretaker to write about communication with these things. I call them things because they told me that they weren’t really dead people. They were always what they are. They can’t give me an age because they said they don’t experience time like we do. Space is linear to them and time is multiple dimensions. That means they can be in more than one place at the same time but they don’t move around in our space so well. That’s why they don’t have form that we can comprehend.
Anyway, when I was a teen I used to talk with one that called itself Ziriya quite often. I don’t know if it’s real name is that or it chose it because I was using a Ziriya board to communicate with it. Nonetheless. It was very informative and friendly with me.
We used to play board games together. We used to play a game called Rune which was a role playing game but not like D&D. There was an end. A winner and a loser to the game. It was a lot like risk only there was a non-player character which we let Ziriya play. So all the beasts and enemy forces were operated by Ziriya. We would make our moves and actions on the board and then we would get on the Ziriya board and ask what he wanted to do. He would then make very specific and calculated moves. Sometimes we beat him and sometimes he beat us!
It was a whole lot of fun especially knowing that we were playing against something not of our dimension. I think Ziriya really enjoyed it too!
We had a lot of fun. We then became in some form… Friends.
He would then warn us about malevolent and devious things that were lying to us and deceiving us. When we talked to these things he would sometimes interrupt the conversation and just bust in and say, “Don’t listen to that crap! He’s lying to you. Be smart and remember what I told you about who you’re really dealing with. Don’t believe a word of what you are told.”
I know this sounds extremely weird but he told us he could speak any language. That communication was in your head and not your words.
I realize this sounds weird but it’s all true. He was the one that stopped in mid sentence and told us “Company’s Due” and 2 seconds later someone knocked on my door. No one could have possibly known someone was approaching my door to knock on it!
