The Toadman’s Ritual

“‘Toadman’: A person who has struck a very particular deal with the devil. They must peg a toad to an anthill until the bones are picked clean, carry the bones around for a day, then drop them in a stream on a full moon at midnight. One bone will remain and it will grant them psychic control of horses.” (view original)
