Magic and Sacrifice

Without sacrifice there can be no magic! Traditional witches do not hold to any "Law of Threefold Return", nor do they believe in the maxim "Harm None", but there is always a price to be paid for magic, no matter how small or how benevolent. Learn about the real price of magic and how to determine the sacrifice required for any spell prior to casting it through the use of the Witch's Bowl.

Witchcraft Familiars

The familiar is the companion and personal spirit of the witch. It is any creature that regularly helps a witch with her Craft. A familiar can be corporeal (existing in flesh and blood in this realm) or incorporeal (a spirit or astral body). Familiars can be plant, animal, mineral, demonic, angelic, or even the dead! In this class you will learn about the history of familiars, and how to attract and bond with familiars in a Traditional Witchcraft setting.
