Okay, so you've decided you want to be a member of the O.O.A., huh? well there are some things you need to know before joining.
1. - If you do not reside here in utah, you need not worry. You can still join, and when an affiliate orginization of the Cult Of Cthulhu, like the Order Of Absu is started up in your area, your membership records can and will be transferred there, to the High Priest/Priestess of that group.
2. - If you do live here, in the Salt Lake/Utah area, please be aware that we will be holding meetings/rituals, and that all members are to be present, if it is possible. Therefore, you need to be there, if you can and have the means to be present at group functions.
3. - All members are to adhere to the honor code of Absu, stated below.
The group honor code is as follows:

Ranks/Adepthood in the O.O.A.
There are 3 adepthood offices within the order. Anything below an acolyte is an initiate. They are as follows:
1 - Acolyte - This is the beginning stage for the initiate, and requires the study of Magicks, and witchcraft. Any traddition can be studied. The initiate is to study magick for a period of 1 month, and is to present practical knowledge of how it works, and is to give an account of how she/he successfully used it to gain or change something in their lives, before being made an acolyte.
2 - Priest/Priestess - This office is the second stage in growth within the order, and requires the study of another magickal traddition, different than the one you learned to become an acolyte. The period of study for this one is 2 months.
3 - High Priest/Priestess - This is the third and highest office in the order, and requires a study period of 3 months. During which you will be expected to learn another magickal/occult traddition, and employ it's system in your life. However, this "pinnacle" as some would see it, is not the end of your magickal/occult learning. there is much more learning of the black arts then can ever be learned in a lifetime.
