Can /x/ please help me out? I'm new to this sort of thing. What paranormal things are 'real'? Is everything just rp? I mean anything.... magic,creatures, etc.
Real: Paranormal activity (probably 4th or higher dimensional beings, more science than spooky)
Demons (same thing)
Fake: lots of stuff including most cryptids, magic, etc
I wouldn't shove all cryptids into one easily dismissed category. A small percentage of them could be animals we haven't discovered yet/the last of their species we may never even confirm existed. Otherwise I agree with your post, there's a difference between things we've yet to understand and shit that RP'ing neckbeards make up to entertain each other.
>Is everything just rp? I mean anything.... magic,creatures, etc
You can spot the RP from actual discussion pretty easily. Most RP on this board is in relation to tulpas, psychics, or anything that answers questions like it's some kind of enlightened fedora neckbeard.
Then you get morons like this guy: >>17299625
Who have never actually done anything but RP, and thinks that's what paranormal actually is, because he's a clueless moron that wants to act like an expert on the subject.
TL;DR: There CAN be actual conversation about the paranormal on this board, and you can spot it easily by being able to look up the topic and find actual evidence of it.
