Draconis Blackthorne's Shadowmantium


nfernal Salutations, thou sojourner, into the realm of THE SHADOWMANTIUM...

Feel free to walk through the Corridors of Darkness at your liesure. There will be abominations of all sorts 'round every corner. The Darkside of your own mind will be revealed. Three times shall you go 'round The Pentagram.

Herein, you may find ecstacy, or pain...& perhaps to you, you will find that one often interchanges with the other... All that is conjured forth herein WILL effect you in one form or another... depending upon wherefore you come, & what constructs your constitution...

To you Children of Darkness, whether realized or not, you will find ambrosia for thy dark soul...to you others, the misdirected masochists who saught this dimension, you will find much more than you bargained for, nor ever imagined...there will be pain here, but of the sort you will NOT enjoy...

The Gates of Hell have been opened, the abominations are loosed, feel the extent of the thrall of Power & ageless wisdom!

I AM the Dark God of this realm. This is My domain...Behold the wonders & terrors I bring...Your immortal soul is mine to direct while you are here, though My influence shall linger long after...

So, welcome to The Devil's Website, where you will either learn to climb the heights & plunge the depths of The Abyss, or become entangled by your own ignorance, cowardice, misunderstanding, & prejudice. You will be exposed to all manner of vice & horror. So remember, you were warned. Your sanity WILL be tested, & only the strongest will survive intact, & be made stronger still.

Stand or fall - depending upon your countenance, you will be numbered either amongst the weak slaves of the nazarene, or the predators of SATAN. Herein you will find fantasy & reality. The lines between both will be obscured by the profane, & be as sustainance to the Children of Lucifer. Pass through the black flames, & be either purified, or consumed...

The Shadowmantium was founded in October of XXXII, amidst the autumnal winds, this brainchild was born, a Hallowe'en spawning, a veritable Frankenstein's monster. In My own personal "Dractionary", the term "Shadowmantium" means: "Abode of Darkness; a Noctuarium", with each chambre being a Noctuary, which I also call My Lair.

The Garden of Eden As you peruse The Shadowmantium, a Satanist will be able to tell what's what, & comprehend the subtleties, metaphors, & archetypal symbolism. A black sheep may take it to a negative extreme. And a blindlighter will become indignant, offended, & afraid. As it should be. This is The Malleus Satanicus, Satan's Hammer; The Devil's Hammer. As Satanism engenders stratification, between the stupid & the intelligent, the fool from the wise, the master & the slave, the predator & the prey, so too may SM. Indeed, this entity called The Shadowmantium is a magical working in itself, & WILL cause CHANGE.
This is a personal site which contains polemic & metaphor, in aesthetic & literary form, illustrating Satanic philosophy in a horror~oriented style, and is not intended to be taken literally in all respects.
The Shadowmantium is dedicated to The Citizens of The Infernal Empire & The LaVey Legacy.
