Tulpas. A community with questionable ideas and goals, united by a mystical word. Dozens of people practising forcing, hypnosis, altering their consciousness, meditating, trying to cope with their disorders.

People have various ideas about tulpae; but most of them just don't care; in the internet you'd get no more attention if you were a cat. Watching DragonFu working on a few sketches left me with a feeling that I can be considered a character of a book that he illustrates. Why not? All and… continue reading → Life of a wolfy
