Anybody ever made a deal with the black man at the crossroads? Does anybody know what the required services are? I mean if you have to murder,
that'd sure put a chink in your fame and fortune especially if you got caught. I wonder if he's a trickster will he say I wanted to be a world
renowned writer and bought a pen and pad and summoned him, would he be like a Jinn and just give me neater handwriting instead of the imagination and
quality to write a novel instead? If you don't know what the Black Man At The Crossroads is, Here is a little description:
In Hoodoo lore, The Black Man At The Crossroads is a spiritual entity that, if the proper ritual is carried out, can magically bestow a skill or
knowledge unto the seeker. The difference between meeting up with The Black Man and traditional demon-pacts of lore is primarily that The Black Man
does not bestow material prosperity, only teaches and bestows skill or knowledge. The belief that one must forfeit one's soul to The Black Man is
incorrect as well, and again arises from the mistaken equation of the The Black Man to the Biblical Satan. In some tales, The Black Man doesn't
bestow his gift for free, that in return for his blessing he requires 7 years of service, but there is no lore about eternal damnation or the loss of
a human soul in exchange.
I'm seriously considering doing this tonight just for a laugh, and mostly out of pure curiosity.Plus I'm running out of patience for a way to make a
decent living and losing hope daily that I'll ever be able to get out of my sucky circumstances.
I thought this is the perfect topic for Halloween also, since the veil is thinner between the worlds.
