The Engine of Oracles is a blog about gaming, and is not meant as a vehicle for any particular political or religious beliefs. The author believes in free speech, and the open dissemination of information. Some of the material referred to on the blog may reflect pre-modern attitudes that are no longer acceptable. No material on this site should be understood as condoning discrimination against any race, religion, culture, lifestyle, ethnic group, sexual orientation, or gender identity. I don’t really believe that an “immoral” life will condemn you to becoming a Vampyre after your death.

The material on this site is intended only for use in role-playing games. While effort has usually been made to be as true to actual history and lore as possible, information may not always adhere to the strictest standards of academic research. Casanova did not actually know any magic spells.

Description of an activity or practice for game purposes should not be construed as promoting that activity in the real world. Grave robbing is not cool, OK?

Some figures described on this blog are directly inspired by real-world mythology or spiritual beliefs. Some artistic license has been taken with the description of such figures. No material should be understood as a criticism or commentary on any real-world religion or spiritual system. Nothing on this blog is meant as a serious work on theology. No offense is intended towards any faith community. I don’t actually believe you can kill angels with magic bullets.

The author does not condone or intend to promote the use of illegal drugs or dangerous medical practices from the past. Do not make any medical or other life decisions based on information on this blog. Opiate abuse will destroy your life, not transport you to the magical realm of Xanadu.

Descriptions of criminal figures from history are meant solely as entertainment, and are not intended to glorify, justify, or condone their actions. Description of criminal acts for game purposes are not meant to promote those acts. Do not don a mask and become a dashing highwayman.
