Interesting, Valan! I like that you're thinking about ways in which witchcraft may go pear-shaped!

Well, first of all, in windy conditions, the bewitched person would try to hold on to his Faithful Hat, in order to prevent from it being blown off his head. But of course it might get blown off anyway.

In that case, I'd say it depends: if the hat gets blown off while the spell is at its strongest, the owner would very much be in the thrall of the magical attachment, and would run after the hat and put it back on, if possible. He would feel as though he was naked, and only his Faithful Hat could cover his shame. But if the spell's power was not yet fully unfolded, or if it was already well on the wane, losing the hat may break the spell.

Hm. Do you think I need to add this point to the entry, or can we keep it here as a record of behind-the-scenes developer discussion? Not sure myself!

I leave that up to you Master Anfang, I'll have something to interest you tomorrow though, if all should go as planned  ;)

Thanks, Valan.

I think I'll keep the entry as it is, then. My New Year's Resolution is to write more succinct, pithy entries, rather than the overlong epistles I usually harrass the board with.

And I look forward to finding out what you've got in store, of course!

Excellent entry here, Shabakuk, and of course Aura +1 for this very first detailed witchery spell, which provides a good idea how the whole things works for future spells as well!

At the moment we'll just have one coven category in the menu under witchcraft, but maybe we'll finally get to a proper Magic menu redesign, then we can add various coven submenus to expand. The fact that an entirely new kind of spells is now introduced makes a magic menu rework ore feasible as we'll have more to put in there, which we can put in categories :) So the whole organisation thing might still change, but otherwise this looks brilliant!  thumbup

Thanks, Arti!

Let's hope that others will feel inspired to join in and make up witch spells of their own! I'll be open to co-operations in this regard, of course!
