Banishing of Prying Eyes
Banishing of Prying Eyes is a defensive witch spell that turns the air around the target detrotsid (that's 'distorted' backwards...). Such air is very difficult for air distortions to penetrate and gives people surrounded by it a bonus to resist scrying attempts.
This spell may be learned at 25 levels of magic.spells.defensive, and is taught by Granny Weatherwax and Aunty Ogg-San.
This spell may be imbued into a magick crystal, which will turn it jet black.
Magick crystals imbued with this spell do not behave quite the same way the spell does:
- They provide a significantly lesser degree of scrying resistance. research If this has been marked on a page, it's because there was something that probably isn't known, that the person who edited the page thinks could be found out. Perhaps you could figure this thing out, and be famous evermore.
- They will flash when someone is attempting to scry the wearer.
This spell costs 25 GP to cast, and takes up 5 units of mind space. It may be cast on any living target.

The following skills are used in the stages of this spell (none of them are primary for Witches):
This spell does not require any components to cast.
You stare at the space in front of <target> until your vision blurs and the air around you distorts. You fix your gaze on a particularly solid looking bit of air and, when it starts to take shape, viciously jab your finger in its eye. The air distortion yelps in pain and trembles. You exclaim: And tell all your friends!
As the distortion disappears, the air around <target> undistorts so sharply that it snaps all the way through clear and out the other side. You feel protected from prying eyes.
What others see
<caster>'s eyes glaze over and start to water. <caster> jabs her finger in the air. The air in front of <target> shimmers and distorts. The air stops shimmering and becomes unnaturally clear around <target>.
Non caster target sees
Same as above except for the last line:
The air around you shudders violently and becomes strangely detrotsid.
Uses standard spell failures.
