How important is the use of the dark arts in modern combat? Now that Russia has used their witches to curse the Ukrainian witches will their combat units stop getting blown up so much?
And please don’t tell me there’s a combat magic gap. What is the US doing to counter Russian combat sorcery?

Give me that old time religion!
It's over, West bros.
I like to imagine that he was just making phone calls to Robin Williams and trying to get him into Mossad.

Well that says the US at least has access to genie contractors which is comforting.
I believe it. Lits of occult shit in the CIA

It all makes sense now.

Honestly not too surprising
Deploy the witch coven

Wait I thought Ukraine was the one using black magic?
If by "black magic" you mean "tactics, logistics, technology, diplomacy, and not having a blind obedience culture" then yes, they are.

Not like it made much of a difference though.

What about combat warlocks?

This is just some convoluted plot to get strippers into the Officer's Mess, isn't it?
Nah, it's 2023 and we respecting women now. Combat witches are soldiers, not strippers. The WACs on the other hand...
Nah, that's coombat witches. There's a difference.
>can't into remote viewing
>use combat wizards to run interference against NATOid remote viewers
That's ESP, not magic.
>prophesied to die due to 'green snot'
>seeks out conflict with 'green snot'
This feels like one of those cautionary tales wherein one meets their doom by trying to avert their doom.
I was about to say it's like Oedipus, or almost every tale that included someone foreseeing their demise, where their actions to prevent it is what actually causes their death.
Good read, I can picture some people believing this unironically
>In 2021, Meduza correspondents heard Tuvans say more than once that Putin is the alleged reincarnation of Genghis Khan, and Shoigu, his close associate Subutai (whom residents of the republic consider their compatriot).
>“Genghis Khan and his commander, Subutai, were the first to take Kyiv, they burned it down and left for the west, for Europe,” Dopchu-ul says. In the 1940s, he says, his father’s brother, the captain Kechil-ul, liberated Ukraine and was awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union. But when the conversation turns to how shamans relate to Sergey Shoigu and current Russian leadership, Dopchun-ul suddenly sounds genuinely offended: “Sholban Kara-ul, the former head of the republic, duped Shoigu. He pulled him to the Buddhist’s side.”
It's over for Ukraine.
>In 2021, Meduza correspondents heard Tuvans say more than once that Putin is the alleged reincarnation of Genghis Khan
That’s embarrassing lol. The mongols actually captured Kyiv.
Rasputin did nothing wrong.
His dick did tho
I don't know, I think the ladies might dispute that point.
Ever heard about the men who stare at goats, anon? The US is far ahead of the Russians in this field too.
We have our own to counter thiers
I wonder what would happen if a drone dropped a "Spirit Offering" into that bonfire.

Ukraine is finished now.
These are freaks and pretenders. There are no combat magicians in russia. Like in the Imperium anyone with a sliver of potential is gathered and sent to Putinomican to protect the Monkey and make all the curses slide off on to his expendable cronies.
I wish I was joking
They make literal blood sacrifices to increase the Monkey's hold on power https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2019/02/22/siberian-shamans-revive-ancient-camel-burning-rite-help-russia-a64593
When someone tries to resist and exorcise Monkey from Russia they face a literal magical battles by Monkey's loyal shamans https://sobesednik-ru.translate.goog/obshchestvo/20190902-bitva-shamanov?_x_tr_sl=ru&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en&_x_tr_pto=sc and then declared insane https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2021/09/russia-siberian-shaman-who-marched-against-putin-is-indefinitely-confined-to-a-psychiatric-hospital/
And this protection works because during the fall Kyivan witches gathered at a cursed mountain and performed a ritual that had to invoke "ass falling off"/"oтвaл жoпы" but it seems that the spell ricocheted right to Rogozina.
I would absolutely love to sit in on one of their meetings and just listen to what they had to say about their work day.
I miss the late 19th/early 20th century where major armies bringing along combat priests to battle the bad Ju-Ju of the enemy Witchdoctors with the Light of the Lord and Neo-Pagans dancing on hilltops to drive the German High Command insane and make them do stupid shit.
>I would absolutely love to sit in on one of their meetings
It's the military so expect a lot of powerpoint slides (picrel) with titles like "Risk Mitigation Planning Strategies for Designing Joint Base Cephaleonomancy and Omoplatoscopy-centric Divination Facilities Intended for Long-term Usage in Foreign Internal Defense and Development (IDAD) Operations in Low-Threat Environments."
>Still not sending western written incantation scrolls to Ukraine
What is the High Council doing? I'm not buying the excuse that ingredients are hard to procure anymore, Ukrainian Shamans have shown more than capable of casting spells with alternative components.
The problem is that NATO and the Warsaw Pact used systems of magic that were diametrically opposed, and I mean that literally--- every single spell was meant to counter a spell found in the opponents' grimoires. NATO magic is inherently incompatible with the magic currently used by Ukraine. Their wizards, no matter how skilled they may be, simply CANNOT learn how to use NATO's magic system. Nor could a NATO magician learn to practice Warsaw Pact magic. It's the reason why most Eastern European NATO members still issue Soviet-made wizard staffs to their forces. They couldn't afford to train and equip an entirely new corps of battle-mages overnight. They've only been gradually migrating towards STANAG magic as their existing sorcerers are killed by alchemical accidents, become possessed due to a demon-summoning gone wrong, or else become indifferent with the concerns of the mortal world and they retire to their wizard towers to study the higher mysteries in pursuit of finding the alkahest.
The West is committed to supporting Ukraine, but any discussion about how best to provide that support has to be grounded in reality. We need solutions, not wishful thinking. And the plain and simple truth is: Ukraine will have to wait until the war is over to try and adopt NATO alchemical apparatuses and spell scrolls.
Idk what all these words mean but Ukraine needs Balrogs yesterday
You should totally make a threat on /tg/, that sounds like a neat Magical Cold War campaign premise.
Isn’t NATO Magick more or less just derived from the Talmud and Ars Goetia?
Mainly, but there's also elements of several Germanic magical traditions (including seiðr), courtesy of all the ex-Nazis in NASA (National Alchemical and Sorcery Administration)
Ukraine has the orb to their disposal, its magic powers are above the capabilities of any wizard in existence. With this said, it's funny to see their puny attempts at breaking through it but I don't think they will ever manage to make trough it
Psychic warfare is legit. Try astral projecting into the White House or Pentagon sometime, you'll be stopped by astral guardians put up by the government. You think para-psychological research was just randomly dropped in the 70's? No, it just became classified.
What do they look like? Are they hostile or do they act like polite janitors?
I also love Shadowrun
Nah, you wanna see actually good defense system, look at Israel.
>you wanna see actually good defense system, look at Israel.
Nice try, but I know what happens.
I wonder if this is why Putin is trying to make in-roads with the Taliban, because when American witches tried to hex the Talibs in 2021 they found the strength of Allah too great
Russians really are just africans in snow
Shoigu is a Tuvan high shaman, Kadyrov has nine-and-ninety Chechen djinns oathbound to him, Prigozhin is on the verge of completing an unparalleled ritual of blood magic, Putin's knowledge of botoxmancy is FAR beyond that of any mortal sorcerer, and most troubling, the Orb is yet unaccounted for and may already be in Russian hands.
What does the US have to oppose them? The first is the rune magic (picrel) NATO learned from the grimoire of the wizard Aypipidaschsichsdee. The second is the esoteric weather-magic known only to the Order of DARPA. The third, and most powerful, is the black magic which allows the United States to destroy other nations' magical wards and gain control of the astral plane. Few details are available to the uninitiated, but it's presumed to be a form of necromancy practiced by the US Navy, as the rites and spells all include mention of the "sea dead".
I think you've forgotten about Gematric-Powered Sorcery (GPS) that makes the rockets blessed with this dark magic actually hit the target.
Of course, russians can't replicate these powers, because they lack the proper magical beasts - the Horrendous Mobik and Ammodepots Ravaging Slayers
>What does the US have to oppose them?
Apparently the Apocalypse Now scene with Wagner blaring was based on some gay op this guy pulled in Panama
Jesus it’s like that guy was trying to be a lightning rod for cons-Ira y theories. Why the hell you gonna make the satanic cult leader guy the leader of your psyops shit?
That's Michael Aquino founder of the Temple of Set. An offshoot of the OG Church of Satan.
>The Temple was established in the United States in 1975 by Michael Angelo Aquino, an American political scientist, military officer, and a high-ranking member of Anton LaVey's Church of Satan. Dissatisfied with the direction in which LaVey was taking the Church, Aquino resigned and – according to his own claim – embarked on a ritual to invoke Satan, who revealed to him a sacred text called The Book of Coming Forth by Night. According to Aquino, in this work Satan revealed his true name to be that of Set, which had been the name used by his followers in ancient Egypt. Aquino was joined in establishing the Temple by a number of other dissatisfied members of LaVey's Church, and soon various Setian groups were established across the United States.
>Setians believe that Set is the one real god and that he has aided humanity by giving them a questioning intellect, the "Black Flame", which distinguishes them from other animal species. Set is held in high esteem as a teacher whose example is to be emulated but he is not worshipped as a deity. Highly individualistic in basis, the Temple promotes the idea that practitioners should seek self-deification and thus attain an immortality of consciousness. Setians believe in the existence of magic as a force which can be manipulated through ritual, however the nature of these rituals is not prescribed by the Temple. Specifically, Aquino described Setian practices as "black magic", a term which he defines idiosyncratically.
Man decided to schism the American Satanists because no one was taking the thing seriously.
>There were nonetheless things that Aquino disliked about the Church of Satan; he thought that it had attracted many "fad-followers, egomaniacs, and assorted oddballs, whose primary interest in becoming Satanists was to flash their membership cards for cocktail-party notoriety".

>Americans have a literal satanist antipope as an officer
well that's embarrassing. No wonder Russians were so successful in their d&c if this was their sparring partner
And yet the oddest thing about the man is his eyebrows.
military wouldn’t let him grow a curly mustache so he improvised adapted and overcame
Better than kids and old conscripts for sure..
>What is the US doing to counter Russian combat sorcery?
wearing dragon bone makes you more or less immune to magic according to my sources
>In April 1945, Soviet forces are storming Berlin. Captain Hasso Pemsel and the survivors of his company are under siege in Berlin's Old Museum with orders to fight to the last man. Pemsel notices a large stone artifact that had not been removed to a safer location and is curious about it. In a lull in fighting, he crawls over and reads that it is the Omphalos from Zeus' temple in Delphi, a keystone and bridge between worlds. On a fatalistic whim he sits on it and is immediately transported to another world where magic works and wizards ride unicorns.
Dragon bone armor tiles aren't effective against top-attack magic missiles
wearing a small amulet is enough
The book is pretty bad compared to all his other works.
still better than any $100+ million budget movie past 3 years

A quite witchy Ukranian song too
its been the soundtrack for a few drone drops too

What do we think we use to defend ourselves in Euroland, Anon?
Yesterday, I saw an Irishman yell "Taig" and a car blew-up. Combat Magic's pretty baller.
Anon, hes irish. That was a carbomb.
that was just a normal explosive, not magic
Music can be a weapon.
The bagpipes were a weapon of war, Trumpets supposedly took down the walls of Jericho, JU-87 Stuka’s had whistle like apparatuses put on them to make a wailing sound.
>Jinn who works for the Mossad and CIA”
How’d they work that deal out?
Hang on a second, I thought WE were the evil, magic casting Satanists and THEY were the good God-Fearing Christians?
Has anyone told the Russians you can't just tag team in one to replace the other when you're on the ropes?
Divine magic is still magic, westoid.
These guys will double cross you
Russians have been fielding necromancers since day 1
How about their Bards?
Memes aside why is reality so gay, its fucking bullshit we can’t have battle mages and wizards running around everywhere. I just wanna brew for spirits’ sake.
We could, the problem is the current liberal world order has sought to disregard arcane or esoteric beliefs. This is in part due to the political establishment not wishing to be challenged by upstart sorcerers and mages.
T. Spent millennia studying the occult.
You have to go back.
Impero tibi, spiritus immunde, quisquis es, cum omnibus famulis tuis, qui hunc servum Dei impugnant, per mysteria incarnationis, passionis, resurrectionis, et ascensionis Domini nostri Jesu Christi, per descensum Spiritus Sancti, per adventum Domini in judicium, ut indices mihi aliquo signo tuo nomine, et die et hora profectionis tuae.

Alexander Subbotin was a Russian oil moron that died at the start of the war during the mediocre purge of 2022-2023. And he allegedly died of a heart attack or whatever during some black magic “Shamanic ritual”
Anybody who thinks russian sorcerors are going to change anything are fucking idiots. The Arch-Mage of Moscow, Oligarsky Mold-Heart has already sold off all the new wands that were supposed to come in.
This is how the russian mages will look
>Instead of modern wands, will be utilizing pine (FUCKING PINE) wands.
>For transportation, the mobilized wizards will have no broom sticks or teleportation circles, instead it will just be constant casting of hastened stride and they will fucking walk.
>Third, due to the corruption in the magic academies of russia, all robes will be made utilizing third tier materials produced by chinese sages. Literally unable to stop the most basic of curses.
