I’ve always wanted to start a secret society. With fancy induction ceremonies, secret meetings, and sacred rituals. It’s just seemed so cool to me. But I don’t know where and when to start one, and who I should start one with. I’m thinking that at my new private school, I could start one. But maybe I should make a game plan first…

Anyhow, here’s an article I found on the subject. My plan is below.

How to Create a Secret Society

from wikiHow – The How to Manual That You Can Edit

Have you always wanted to be in an exclusive club, but never known of any? Do you wish to be viewed as chic and sophisticated? Start a secret society with only your coolest and closest friends.

Steps

  1. Get a secret! A secret society has a secret to protect. The Illuminati are said to have a secret plan to take over the world (and is said to already be working).
  2. Read a few clique-like books for some background information. Get any number of your friends to read these books. Privately talk with one of your closest friends whom you know will love the idea of starting a secret society.
  3. Think of a name. You and your closest friend should discuss what your secret society should be called. Also discuss who you will induct. Remember, even if you have a large group of (really good) friends, not all of them are secret society material. They won’t find out, as it is a secret society.
  4. Conduct a proper initiation for you and your closest friend. This should be done before you initiate others. That way, you are sure to come up with a good idea. The initiation is one of the most important parts of the society. It has to be something neither of you would do normally. Candle-lighting sets a serious and official tone, and symbolic objects are a must.
  5. Figure out what your society does. There have to be rules. Set a schedule for fun things you can do, ie. dressing alike on certain days, or having monthly rituals. Have fun with it! It’s all about your creativity.
  6. Find potential members. Subtly drop something related to your secret in a conversation with a friend to figure out how they feel about it. Make sure there’s no possibility they ever betray you, make sure they will be okay with the rules. Don’t mention your secret society until you are absolutely sure they can be completely trusted.
  7. Induct your members. Invite your friends to a sleepover and then spring it on them. They will be surprised and excited, and thrilled because they are special.
  8. Keep quiet and have fun. Your friends and you will be closer than ever.

Warnings

  • If you are only choosing certain friends amongst a clique, be prepared to deal with questions if one of your unchosen friends finds out about your secret society; have answers and excuses meticulously prepared!
