    Based on what I know about things, though never like speaking of it, this is not real. Making a golem, or humunculus is very high magic involving very specific ingredients. A certain kind of meteoritic glass mixed with clay is required and certain letters spelling a certain word is also needed. The Frankenstein story is based on a real Golem that was mismanaged in Prague. Well, mismanaged for a time. It is said the golem "rests" in a certain house of worship there in the rafters. This story is on a video by Vincent Bridges, now deceased, I do not remember which video and it is in the somewhere in a long video about Enochian magic and other things.

    LOL. Agreed, obviously the video maker was a jerk off.

    No good character may have the homunculus. While it is your follower you add one to your strength and one to your craft. (Talisman)

    I only know the game magic, not the high magic. But I certainly wouldn't be putting my energies into learning to make one. ,

    Agreed, there is little utility for one and much possible blowback.

    Homunculus can be thought of as a tangible hologram of human (or living) form possibly driven by remote control that may be confused for the original in some way.

    Such a definition lends itself to being a technological creation as well. I suppose those high end life size sex dolls might qualify insofar as the specific function of concern is constrained...

    No matter what this is, it looks pretty awful and disgusting, to be honest. A real turnoff.
    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    I could not agree more. The recipe is yucky too.

    I working my way through a pot. Already had an hour and a half meeting and multi hour one begins for me at the top of the hour. Weds. and Thurs. are filled like that every week for me. How I keep the checkbook balanced. Looking to get my shiatsu work going in my new home. I prefer that to meetings. Throwing a few posts up while I can and then jump into the owl shift.

    I first heard the term Homunculus from a JSM series he did post babylon5 called Crusade.

    The Homunculus was the creation of Galen, a "techno-mage" that joins the team of protagonists in their quest to find...
