The Black Lodge
The Black Lodge is a group based on "human experience." With being an individual, everyone has a background and a story to discuss. Within that, many of the struggles of being alive derive. Some of the best literary giants have come from those ideas. With that, many stories and ideas to share. They are a group focused on a variety of purposes but mostly pertain to music, movies, literature, discussions, and a sense of community.
The Black Lodge started out just as a project under it's former group name, L'appel Du vide, before the group got rebranded as a whole. It was a mix between a lounge group and a debate group that was active in the Science, Religion, Philosophy, and Politics section. The team held both recruitment threads as well as accepted buy-ins for those who wanted automatic acceptance into the group. The recruitment threads required members to write an essay on specific topics that was clarified in the threads themselves. Hexicidal offered the buy-in price at just $25 BTC.
On top of offering a reasonable membership buy-in, a leadership position was attempted to be auctioned off by Nobility with a starting bid of $850, but without any luck. Hexicidal had the group up for sale since it's inception and found a buyer just three months after The Black Lodge got created.
