The Great and Amazing Mirrorhands Encyclopaedia


What is this?
Exactly what it says on the tin. Here, we explain certain phrases and words that are important in dealing with the supernatural. This is mostly to aid quick and precise conversation. We help far more easily if we're sure that by "I'm haunted", you mean that something's following you and not that you have a malevolent entity in your body. Reading this stuff can save your life.

What do the colours mean?
The colours show priorities. The code is as follows:
Obscure (You can look these up when you need them)
Helpful (You should get around to reading up on these in your first few weeks here, on LookAtTheTime.com)
Important (Read these as soon as possible)
Basic (These are basic vocabulary on the Paranormal. If you don't know these words, you will have huge problems communicating and getting help. Read these immediately!)

(Note: This Thread is named in honour of the original Mirrorhands.com forum!)

Artifact
See Object, Paranormal


Critter

See Entity, Paranormal


Event, Paranormal
Also PEv

A paranormal event is any event, happening, occurence or sight, that defies rational explanation. Paranormal Events tend to be seen by single individuals and invisible by others. We have no information on the reason.

Safety Notice: Witnessing a Paranormal Event can be a great strain on your mind. Please consider seeing a psychiatrist after such an event.

Entity, Paranormal

Also Critter, PEn

A paranormal entity is any paranormal event, that appears to be alive or at least mimics life.

Safety Notice: Do not think that something that seems to be alive can be killed. Chances are that it can't.

Incorporeal Entity

An incorporeal entity is a paranormal entity, that lacks a physical form. Often they are tied to a paranormal object and can be banished with appropriate rituals.

Examples of Incorporeal Entities:
The thing in the house in Munich and the Hausgeist
The Mirrorshifter

Safety Notice: These can go through solid walls and do other incredibly dangerous things. Be wary.

Haunting
See also Object, Paranormal

Haunting, when applied to an object, means that the object is a paranormal one, which a paranormal event is tied to.
"The idol of many hands is haunted. Wherever it goes, horrific things happen."
When applied to a person, it means that said person is followed and attacked or endangered by a paranormal Event.
"I'm being haunted. Something is following me and it's whispering things to me in my sleep."

Compare Possession.

Ingredient

An ingredient is a tool or other item that is used in a particular ritual.


Object, Paranormal
Also POb, Artifact

Sometimes paranormal events are tied to inanimate objects. We call those objects paranormal objects or artifacts. Paranormal objects vary greatly in size. There have been reports on objects from the size of a coin to huge, haunted mansions.

Safety Notice: Do not handle any paranormal object without knowing what it is. These things are incredibly dangerous and should be hidden in a place only you have access to.

Post here if you find one and somehow can't do proper research on it.

Possession

A possession is the event of a paranormal entity entering a person's or animal's body or mind and partially or fully controlling their thoughts and movements. The exact symptoms of possession vary widely.

Safety Notice: Seek help immediately. Possession is ALWAYS an emergency. If you can find a pattern or trigger for when the entity takes control of the subject, tie said subject down in those time intervals, or avoid the triggers at all costs.

Ritual

A ritual is an algorithm, a list of ingredients steps to be taken (Akin to a recipe), to achieve some kind of paranormal effect. They tend to have some side effects as well.

Safety Notice: Before attempting these, read up on them and discuss them on the Forum!
