The Eleusinian Covenant


Demeter, the goddess of the grains, of the harvest, of nature itself, predates the Hellenic pantheon which adopted her by centuries. Demeter and Kore’s shared story is part of an older myth cycle, the Eleusinian Mysteries. These Mysteries have been reinterpreted and given new passion by 22nd Century America’s Choicer Covenant. The Eleusinian Mysteries are the unifying force that binds the Covenant together. The spiritual unity the once forgotten mysteries provided the young Covenant helped it mature from a few scattered neo-pagan covens into the mightiest military and economic force in North America.

Demeter’s believers have quietly shaped the Choicer Covenant’s unique technology, and are steering all humanity towards a post-human Singularity via that same technology. Eleusinian parapsychologists developed the first of the thought-based weapons known as Object Philosophies. The starship C.S.S Lesbos, named for the ancient Greek community, is at the forefront of human space exploration and was designed and christened by a crew initiated in the Eleusinian Mysteries.

The multi-billion Euro construction cost of Earth’s most impressive mega-structure- the Aegean orbital beanstalk- was bankrolled by Eleusinian financiers. With the construction of the fourth orbital elevator off the California coast, Eleusinian engineers reassert their technological prominence in the wake of the Abortion War. Dedicated cyborg Mysteryseekers are part of the terraforming corps that are slowly and inexorably transforming the cold and sterile Moon into a garden. By worshipping the mother of the Earth, the Eleusinian Covenant has claimed the sky.

Even among a nation of hyper-educated, high-tech utopians, the initiates of the Eleusinian mysteries are renowned for their genius. The Eleusinian Covenant is the wealthiest and most powerful faction within the Covenant of the Goddess Universal. Close allies with the politically dominant Dianic Rite Wiccan and Gardnerian Lineage sects, they have absorbed and sublimated other Goddessworshipping factions, as the Eleusinian Mysteries completely explore the archetypical three faces of the Goddess: maiden, mother and crone, through Demeter and Kore’s shared journey.

This sourcebook details the beliefs and advanced technology of the Eleusinian Covenant, and delves more deeply into the history and internal culture of the embattled Choicer Covenant as a whole.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
