Reality. Miracles. Infinity. Ascension. Welcome back, Outlander, for Part 2 of my series on D&D 5e Plot Hooks from the Western Esoteric and Occult traditions, how they shaped Dungeons & Dragons (particularly D&D 5e) over time, and how Dungeon Masters, worldbuilders, and D&D players can incorporate Occult themes. This week we kick down the door straight through Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages into the Renaissance and Early Modern Period. Let’s talk about Gnosticism, Thaumaturgy, Kabbalah, Cunning Folk, and Theosophy!
Signs. Spirits. Sigils. Secrets. For my first blog post on Otherworldly Incantations I want to open with a longer-than-average series in four parts on Western Esoteric and Occult traditions, their relation to Dungeons & Dragons (particularly D&D 5e), and topical Plot Hooks to inspire Dungeon Masters, worldbuilders, and D&D players to incorporate Occult themes. Let’s learn about Therianthropy, the Old Norse Magickal Tradition, Apotropaic Magick, Hermeticism, and Alchemy!
