    Default Servitor Question

    I have quite a few questions regarding the creation of Servitors.

    ...While there are many techniques for the creation of servitors, I must ask...what are the essential basics to Servitor creation?

    Deep thinking? Clear goal in mind? What else?

    ...or is there even such thing as basic essentials to Servitor creation? Could it possibly be as easy as mentioning a few words with a half-assed idea in your head?


    My other question is how do you know the Servitor is created?

    ...Does a servitor actually manifest? or does it manifest only if you believe it manifests?

    I've been dabbling in the Occult for around 5 years and I can honestly admit that I lied to myself a lot when I failed to see legitimate results...But is tricking yourself to really thinking the Servitor is "a live" really the same as it actually being a live?

    I see people making claims that they can actually "see" their Servitor. I mean how does that work? I've asked this question numerous times but I always get an answer that doesn't really answer my question. How does someone see a Servitor? Is it with our physical eyes? Is it with our third eye? Is it actually SEEING or is it merely imagining?

    Can you actually hear the Servitor speak to you? As if it was a human speaking to you?

    So far the topic of Servitor creation has been my most interested subject.

    IMO the most important part of servitor creation is the description. Sloppy programming is the most common source of rogue servitors. You need to build a strong spell matrix with a detailed description of the servitor's duties, powers and degree of autonomy. I always specify that my servitors have personal loyalty to me hardwired into their programming, but to balance it I offer a reciprocal relationship and a "signing bonus" tailored to the nature of the spirit in question. This is in addition to the magical energy required to give the daemon "life."

    Thank you for answering the first question, but if you do make servitors (successfully I presume) then surely you could answer my other questions.

    Can you please?

    Thank you very much for your biological reasoning on the manner, that was helpful.

    Absolutely not. Servitor creation is complex and never just a simple matter of spell mechanics. This is why there are so many different techniques. Designing the servitor is most of the effort. Pumping magical energy into the creation is the easy part.

    My other question is how do you know the Servitor is created?

    ...Does a servitor actually manifest? or does it manifest only if you believe it manifests?

    I've been dabbling in the Occult for around 5 years and I can honestly admit that I lied to myself a lot when I failed to see legitimate results...But is tricking yourself to really thinking the Servitor is "a live" really the same as it actually being a live?

    As a chaos magician, I'll reserve judgment on the ultimate nature of servitors. I'll say only that they're a useful metaphor for the control of forces that can have real world effects. I talk to my servitors all the time, but they're not something that can be photographed or recorded.
