Taiwanese Five Ghost Fortune (I)
The Taiwanese five ghost fortune method is a little
different from the ones that we know in SEA.
First, we must find a god forsaken grave, bones or the
cremation ashes of a bandit or someone that died of horrific causes. When this
is done, we should offer it with dishes and liquor. Following the meal offering,
two pieces of incense sticks should be lit and explicitly telling the spirit

a bad luck cycle, then the spell should not be cast otherwise dangers will fall
upon this sorcerer. Unless compelled to, it is not a norm that any sorcerers
are willing to perform this deed for any requestors.
