The 12 Levels of Dread: Level 3 – New Life

“People who cannot find time for recreation are obliged sooner or later to find time for illness.”

-John Wanamaker

If you haven’t read the previous installments on this series, I would highly recommend doing so here, here, and here.  This level of the Dread Game is all about reclaiming your freedom and enjoying life to its fullest and how to deal with the inevitable pushback from your wife.

By this point, you should be no less than three months into the entire process, preferably longer.  You should be making great strides in your fitness levels, getting your finances under control, sharpening your mind with mentally stimulating books and activities, and deflecting your wife’s shit tests like a Kung Fu master.  Level 3 is all about developing hobbies away from the home.  It might seem rather of a benign step in the grand scheme of Dread Gaming your spouse, but like all the others, this one is crucial…but why?

The 12 Levels of Dread: Level 2 – Action

“Make the most of yourself….for that is all there is of you.”
―Ralph Waldo Emerson

In our last article of this series, we discussed how to identify and properly respond to the various shit tests women will sling your way, by adopting a carefree, sometimes flirty attitude.  If you’ve been studying the material provided in the last article, focusing on the subtext that women provide when they talk to you, and keeping your wits about you, you should be starting to get a good grasp on things.  Continue reading “The 12 Levels of Dread: Level 2 – Action”

A Family Carved of Stone

As the leader of the pack that is your family, your guidance, words and most importantly your actions will dictate what your family looks like and ascribes to.  You’re the horse, and the driver of the cart and your actions are what they will consider the norm.  When it comes to health and fitness, there is no exception to this rule.

“Masculinity is not something given to you, but something you gain. And you gain it by winning small battles with honor.”

-Norman Mailer

The 12 Levels of Dread: Introduction

“Something did happen to me somewhere that robbed me of confidence and courage and left me with a fear of discovery and change and a positive dread of everything unknown that may occur.”
―Joseph Heller

Those who have been a part of the red pill community for a while are probably very familiar with the concept of Dread Game even if they aren’t employing it.  For many others, the term Dread Game sounds ominous, like some sick form of mental abuse that one spouse plays on the other.

It is true that some individuals utilize a darker version of the practice, but in actuality Dread Game is in and of itself, fairly benign.   Continue reading “The 12 Levels of Dread: Introduction”

Leading Our Sons to Victory

A large part of the red pill community fails to address the next generation.  Our sons and daughters are our legacy, and to come upon such theories and practices which we subscribe to, only to have them forgotten once we pass is tragic in itself.

My oldest son is reaching age ten now and I’ve noticed the shift he’s gone through over the past few years.  He’s shifted his focus onto me more so than his mother. He tries to emulate dad more every day. I owe it to him to show him how a man should act. Continue reading “Leading Our Sons to Victory”

Welcome to A King’s Castle

Welcome to The King’s Castle.  J. Nyx, and Gentleman Jak from are collaborating to create this site in order to address a section of the red pill community that is often overlooked: married men.  Sure, traditional marriage gets brought up from time to time in the red pill community as the gold standard for a healthy society, but rarely is it discussed in any great lengths.  Typically the topics revolve around travel, gaming women, and money.

None of these topics are bad, mind you, but they’re only addressing a part of the story.  Continue reading “Welcome to A King’s Castle”
