The Sides of Magic
- Elemental: The elemental witches work within the many individual elements that make up our earth. They can manipulate their chosen element. Some witches in this categories specify in one element while few dabble in a couple. Some witches powers will jump from one element to the next until they settle on one. There are the traditional elements like fire, water, air, and earth. These can be divided again into plant, electrical, ice, and metal.
- Healing: The healing category is essentially what it sounds like. They can heal all beings. The more immortal the being, the more power and energy it takes. However, they are also able to prevent beings from healing as well. It’s safe to say you don’t want to get on the bad side of a Healer witch.
- Time & Space: Time and space are linked together because they affect and feed off of each other. Time is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole. Space is the continuous area or expanse that is free, available, or unoccupied.
- Light: Light magic is magic that is used for a good or pure purpose. Any of the above categories can have a light side.
- Dark: Dark magic is magic that is used to intentionally harm others. Any of the categories above can have a dark side. Dark magic usually can include blood offerings or sacrifices. Witches who practice dark magic don’t usually consider themselves bad or see what they are doing is bad. It’s just part of their culture.
***Please note that witches are not strictly either Light or Dark. Certain spells and potions are categorized as such. Some witches do either practice light or dark magic though while others flip flop back and forth depending on what their magical needs are at the time. Deities
- Mother Nature: She is the entity that elemental witches look to for guidance. She contains the magic of all elements and gifts them to witches as she sees fit.
- Airmid: She is the entity that represents healing.
- Father Time & Eternity: Father Time controls all things time. He gifts the power of time to witches as they sees fit. He watches over it and the witches that control it. However, if he sees an abuse of the thing he has created he will put a stop to it. Eternity is the entity that represents space.
: The word amulet comes from the latin word amulētum which means ‘an object that can protect one from trouble.’ Amulets are objects typically worn on one’s person. They possess magic to protect its holder. It can either be protection in general or from something in particular. Items made into amulets can be gems (especially engraved ones), crystals, coins, statues (smaller and handheld, roughly the size of a chess piece or a bit bigger), pendants, bracelets, and rings. Amulets created with a Coven setting are usually more powerful and last longer than ones created outside of a Coven setting. However, the magic used is the same.
