Some bidders who didn't pay



Based upon the Brazen Head of myth... and seeking something to use besides the trusty Balsamo Skull to use as an Oracle... behold!

The Crystal Mind of Azoth.

For getting started on the Brazen Head, some information - JUST CLICK


Some say the heads represent the Head of Baphomet as well...Click away!

Of course, the Carcosans have always loved such items from the days a Brazen Head was up for action in the fictional(?) worlds of HPL...



It is rumoured that the Crystal Mind was created by a victorian scientist who combined alchemy with innovative scientific breakthroughs to create a sentient artificial intelligence that was connected to worlds beyond ours.  Through the proper sequence of actions... or spells... or whatever view point you wish to look at it from... the Mind would be able to answer terrible secrets.

More information regarding the creator and head may be released in the future...



We do know that Balsamo and the Mind do enjoy chatting with each other - swapping arcane secrets and darker truths in their alcoves in the collection.  In fact, you can hear inhuman mechanical laughter and chattering bones of mirth nighty.


Tome Tribute

"They say foul beings of Old Times still lurk in dark forgotten corners of the world, And Gates stll gape to loose, on certain nights, Shapes pent in Hell."

The Book

Thought of the Eon

There is a concept that is the corrupter and destroyer of all others. I speak not of Evil, whose limited empire is that of ethics; I speak of the infinite.

-Jorge Luis Borges
