The "Golden Spike" (aka "The Last Spike") is the ceremonial final spike driven by Leland Stanford to join the rails of the First Transcontinental Railroad across the United States connecting the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads on May 10, 1869, at Promontory Summit, Utah Territory.
The San Francisco earthquake of 1906 was a major earthquake that struck San Francisco and the coast of Northern California at 5:12 a.m. on Wednesday, April 18, 1906.[Devastating fires broke out in the city and lasted for several days. As a result of the quake and fires, about 3,000 people died and over 80% of San Francisco was destroyed.
Ritual of the Golden Spike : Invented by the Ordo Founder. Alleged to have been completed first in 1869 at the completion of the transcontinental railroad. By laying down railroad tracks or a road a ley line can be shifted by means of driving a specially prepared Golden Spike into the ground linking the seperate pieces. If successful the leylines which occur naturally will shift their way to follow the track or road and is alleged to create a new Wyrm's nest.
Preparation involves the Ritual Murder of a native american Shaman. The Ritual Sacrifice must be constrained and transfixed through the heart by a specially constructed Golden Spike which has been inscribed with Cthonic imagery at 6am on midwinter's night.
No one knows whether this is true as no one to this day has been able to reproduce the ritual and the rite is only alleged those few members of the faction who witnessed the event of the transcontinental railroad completion with the golden spike and say it did create a wyrm's nest on that spot and warp ley lines though no one knows the truth.
