Hello and welcome to the Venatores Manes site. Here you will find a devout following of believers in the supernatural.

The site’s name is a latin translation of ghost hunters (Venatores were an armed class of warrior — we, similarly, arm ourselves with the latest technology and theories), and that is what we intend to do. Our goal is to obtain evidence of the spirit realm that may prove, unequivocally, that there is life after death — and of course, we will have a little fun along the way.

Enjoy, and please, feel free to comment on any of our topics. We gladly accept open debates (but please keep your thoughts tactful).
