Is this deifying of a video game character just a gag? I understand if it is, I see funny stuff like this all of the time. But I have to say that if this is genuine and sincere, you should seriously reevaluate yourself.

Please read this N.Vest, it explains the significance of the symbol, the feathers and everything else you have mentioned and some you haven't.

I may regret asking this, but what is the significance of this outfit? I know it is part of your lamatology ritual get up but why is it like this? The yin/yang I can kind of get, and you explained the moonstone. But why the feathers? Why a skirt, for lack of better term, what does the hat symbolize? Or the Dragon? and what does any of this have to do with a French steamboat captain(i think that's what you said he was)?

The dragon on the sleeves you mean? Yes it's embroidered.

Love the headdress.  Is the dragon embroidered, or an applied lame?

Thanks Lucius.

This I find acceptable. Personally I think its ridiculous to worship a video game character, but hey... to each his own.

Fraternal orders for young men?

Hello, I am recently returning to these forums after a couple of years with a new-found interest in old world traditions and community building.I want to combine these two interests by forming a fraternal order for young men to be part of a positive group. Because most young men don't have a lot of disposable income the idea would be to facilitate their practical, rather than financial, contributions to their communities.  We would try out and practice old world skills such as blacksmithing,…See More

Regardless of the specifics, we can all agree on one thing. Jesus Christ was the perfect Man who died and rose again for us such that we could have fellowship with Him
