    Was the eight pointed star as a symbol for Chaos as presented in Wierd of the White Wolf your origional idea or did you lift it from folk lore :?:

    CeeTee, you might want to check out the following threads while you await a reply from the man himself. He evidently created the symbol one day at his kitchen table...

      I agree. TheAlderian, can you point to some reference material online? I'd love to read more. I'm especially interested in seeing illustrations most of all.
      The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

        Hey guys!

        I was so bored that i posted the same question (contest) in another community. I posted it in the Black and Death metal fans thread.
        We'll see who posts the right answer.
        And well also see how many people might know.

        Back to you shortly on this!

        Peace out and have a nice weekend!

          If it's a symbol of the way my brain works then it's an appropriate symbol for Chaos :lol:
