The Order of Spitzalod is an esoteric initiatory order that operates from the perspective of the Left Hand Path. The Order of Spitzalod is solely dedicated to the practice of the principles and teachings of the Spitzalodian and Dakmonian current; as given to us by the Founder and first Grandmaster of the Order, Tomemaster. The precise origins of the Order of Spitzalod are shrouded in mystery. However, according to Tradition, Spitzalodian teachings and principles were originally handed down by word of mouth sometime during the Neolithic period. This practice of oral tradition continued until the teachings were later written down by an Arabian magus during the third millennia B.C.E.
The last known original copies of our written Tradition were lost in 48 B.C.E when the armies of Julius Caesar inadvertently burned the famed library in Alexandria, Egypt. The historians Plutarch, Ammianus, and Orosius record this event as an unintended consequence of an order given by Caesar for his soldiers to set fire to Egyptian ships in the harbor. This was done in attempt to keep his rival, Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus, from escaping back to Rome from the Egyptian coast.
The Order of Spitzalod and the teachings of Spitzalodian magick did continue on until the beginning of the last millennium. It was at that point that the Order fell victim to the spread of Christianity and Islam as well as the onset of the Dark Ages.
The last few practitioners who could pass down the knowledge by word of mouth died and the knowledge was lost until its re-introduction by Tomemaster from 1976 until 1999 while serving as a “mental channel” for the Power known as Spitzalod.
Spitzalodian magick takes an ethical approach to the practice of the magickal arts and the Old Ways. It is based upon the philosophical principle of Dharma as well as the Arabic principle of Din, meaning "way of life". Spitzalodian magick also adheres to the principles of the Laws of Sorcery as well as the Law of Reconciliation of Opposites. To the Order of Spitzalod and its practitioners, there is an inherent universal balance in all things. As such, practitioners maintain a balanced practice of both positive and negative (correct and incorrect) energy. To the Spitzalodian Practitioner, nothing is purely positive or negative, but the summation of both energetic polarities.
Currently the Order of Spitzalod is presided over by its third seated Grandmaster, Dark Nemesis. For those who feel they hear the call to a creative form of sorcery, review our information and feel free to contact us. We look forward to working with you.
