In every lock of hair, every furtive
glance, every secret note that
transfers hands during history
class – there is an invitation. An
invitation to be fucked with. Not
that witchcraft is about fucking
with others, exactly, but it’s hard
not to notice how utterly malleable
the world is, once you know a
thing or two about magick.
Of course, a good witch like you
knows restraint. A good witch
turns a blind eye to all those
invitations, and doesn’t think
about how sweet vengeance
and control might be. A good
witch is above that sort of thing.

Playing The Witch
Manipulative, secretive, judgmental,
brooding. The witch is all about casting

they penned, their journal, or
lipstick that they lent you. These
are things that you’ll need to steal,
borrow, or otherwise scheme to get

side effects” from Hex-Casting, the
MC gets to determine what those side
With the Hex Illusions, you chose which
type of illusions the hexed sees, but the
MC gets to describe the specific visions
and the reactions of the hexed.
After sex, you can take a sympathetic
token from them. They know about it,
and it’s cool.
The time for subtlety and patience is
over. You’re too powerful to put up
with their garbage any longer. You hex
anyone who slights you. All of your
hexes have unexpected side effects,
and are more effective than you are
comfortable with. To escape your
Darkest Self, you must offer peace to
the one you have hurt the most.
