I am currently exploring a different trend, one that tends to be left out when combating something perceived as evil. Necromancy, the modern iteration, not divination by corpse, is the path I am going to take to see what I can learn about Ola'asu. Some of the oldest gods in history are the rulers of death, or the realms thereof. Hades / Pluto, Set, Hel, Azrael, Yama, Ahriman, and of course the Grim Reaper all tied to the concept of death. So many gods represent death, so wouldn't it make sense that if there were a way to combat a god, researching death gods would be the way to find it? That is what I will endeavor to do in the near future. I will attempt resurrections, reanimation, blood animation, soul removal, and more. Mind you, I will not become a being worse than that which I am trying to stop in doing this. There is a rather nasty infestation of snakes in my yard, so I will be attempting most of my experiments on them. This also has the interesting advantage of solving the age-old question: Do animals have souls? If I can remove it, then they do. If not, then I'd need a human subject to know if my method is correct or not. I will deal with that if and when I encounter it.
Tony seems relieved that I am taking up Necromancy, which should put in perspective how worked up he has been about my involvement with Ola'asu. Thus, he is helping me, which is good, because a complication came up in the treatment. My legs have complete mobility now for the first time in four years. They have also developed necrosis at various injection sites from the treatment. It was caught early, as an hour before it was noticed there was literally nothing of note, so there should not be any significant damage, but it is disheartening.
Something I just noticed: The two themes of this post are necromancy and necrosis, both starting with 'necro-,' meaning 'death'. I hope that the rule of three does not assert itself here.
