Short Tricks

Eudora's Nac Mac Feegles (2nd place)

Eudora L'Reaux gets a bottle of scumble from her pack, opens it and places it
on the ground. She smirks, saying " You'll wish you hadn't done that!" and
summons the Nac Mac Feegles offering them the Scumble.
Eudora L'Reaux curses something under her breath. Out of the corner of your eye
you see shadows scuttle about. The clan of Nac Mac Feegles surrounds Eudora
L'Reaux. They drink the Scumble and start scrapping amongst themselves.
Eudora points at Unlucky Charlie and grunts. With a ferocious cheer the Feegles
attack Unlucky Charlie and each other.. Unlucky Charlie starts swatting the
Feegles like flies. You hear a "Crivens!" as Unlucky Charlie runs away pursued
by the Feegles.

Hiexa's Blue Skies (3rd place)

(cast by Frazyl)

Lady Frazyl raises her arms to the skies convoking a flock of weather spirits.
You can feel invisible powers channelling throughout Lady Frazyl's body.
Lady Frazyl starts dancing convulsively and manages to release the forces
inside her.
A furious storm arrives that clears the sky and paints it a brilliant deep blue
on its leaving.

Ved's Froggy Conviction (4th place)

Wicked Ved peers at a nearby frog, and somehow its image is channeled into the
foreground of your thoughts.
Wicked Ved evokes images of a nice damp swamp, filled with nice muddy pools of
water and lots of delicious flies.
Wicked Ved purses her lips and mutters a curse at Unlucky Charlie.
Unlucky Charlie suddenly goes green in the face.  He hops around a bit, and he
looks alarmed.  Unlucky Charlie opens his mouth and screams: Ribbit!

Mocks

Eudora (3rd place)

Eudora L'Reaux loudly exclaims with a Morporkian accent: You call that fading,
     Unlucky Charlie?  Oh deary, our Charlie. If that is what you call fading I
     could go swimming and then call it wading. Why our Nanny Ogg, she may be
     quite big, and as we all know she drinks pints of scumble in one swig. And
     being drunk and up for dancing, our dear Nanny can still use her glancing.
     She might be getting on but she can still hide, even with a hive of bees
     up her backside. Yet here you are, trying to fade but still you move as if
     on a parade. Look, I see you still fidgeting, it's such a bad habit, if
     you carry on people will mistake you for a rabbit. I saw better fading
     from children on sugar, try to sit still you wriggly wee bugger! If you're
     in the shades and there's thieves all around, you'll be wishing you could
     fade into the background. Even our lovely Agnes, when oberserving this,
     would be calling you names like clot and dimwitt. So you'd best up your
     game and start to try harder or I'll pop round your house and i'll tell
     thee father! And I tell thee now he will not be impressed to hear his
     young seed is making such mess. Now pay attention and stop wombling
     around, put in some effort and make us all proud!
Eudora L'Reaux loudly exclaims with a Morporkian accent: You call that dodging,
     Unlucky Charlie?  Really? Now our Charlie With dodging like that you will
     never be able to dodge your taxes. The Tax Collecter will have a field day
     with you my love. Better give up now before Granny Watherwax gets wind of
     how bad you are at dodging! For crying out loud just start ducking
     instead. Mind you the Ducks would be very offended if your ducking is
     anything like this dodging. That is some truly terrible dodging right
     there!I've seen barn walls move better than you! Why, I haven't seen
     dodging this dreadful since our Wee Agnes Nitt, mind you this was many
     years ago, tried to dodge the trees whilst flying on her broom through the
     forrest and we all know how that ended. Poor Lass. She has never been
     quite the same since and prefers to walk everywhere. AS A HAG! So if you
     don't wanna end up like our poor Agnes you'd best learn to dodge! If you
     get some practise in you might even be able to dodge an insult from a wet
     hen!

Lovejoy (2nd place)

Wee Lovejoy Bellerose loudly says: You call that mocking, Unlucky Charlie?
     You've always admired, I've heard, anybody who had a wicked word, and so I
     say to you Charlie today, that things just didn't go your way! Your
     mocking was sub par, and you've failed by far, even Nadow with her
     poisoned apples, could with words better than you grapple! So it's best
     that you give up, and just take yourself off to the pub, because at
     mocking you have failed, and for the last time you have wailed.

Ocelind

Unfortunately, Ocelind's spoken Morporkian wasn't high enough for the mock to come through right. Unmangled version below.

Ocelind loudly says with an Uberwaldean accent: You call that mocko, Unlucky
     Charlie?  I've got three words for you: Drop  beat. Uhhius. / Yeah. /
     Let's go. / You caelgium that a mock? Err. Witch, give me a break. / Ille
     sumiti sutrium a magnus crock, is this a mock mick take? / Spittin' fire?
     Err. Nah, You couldn't rehedo the seitan, / For Old Auntie Ogg-San's
     picnic vacation. / See I used to be the sous-chef that she most trusted, /
     Imticulum the day she found out that my rub was budniali --whoops! Uhm.
     Uhm. / My ludo meat marinade made the maigre m --ack! / Made the old
     corometrali hit me with some knives I couldn't duck. / Dry mouth, cold
     skin---my ears were  --ack! Err. / By her seventh word? Err. I almost
     wished  was dead. / So cuius you came out here, you really made a mistake.
     / If this had been a bake off you'd be undercooked cake. Uhm. / Think
     you've got it down, but you keep making howl --ack! Err. Uhm. / You should
     volunteer your voice for stuffed animal growlers. / Well, I gotta
     fly---I've got places to be, / But you can stay down here, raidnial
     people's self esteem. Err. / Yeah you've got all the warts so you think
     you've  --ack! Uhm. Uhm. / I've just got 99 levels as a witch---you're
     done.

Unmangled:

Ocelind tells you: I've got three words for you: Drop a beat. / Yeah. / Let's
     go. / You call that a mock? Witch, give me a break. / That's such a big
     crock, is this a mock mick take? / Spittin' fire? Nah, You couldn't reheat
     the seitan, / For Old Auntie Ogg-San's picnic vacation. / See I used to be
     the sous-chef that she most trusted, / Until the day she found out that my
     rub was busted. / My mock meat marinade made the maigre muck. / Made the
     old crone hit me with some knives I couldn't duck. / Dry mouth, cold
     skin---my ears were red. / By her seventh word? I almost wished I was
     dead. / So when you came out here, you really made a mistake. / If this
     had been a bake off you'd be undercooked cake. / Think you've got it down,
     but you keep making howlers. / Yo

Umiven (4th place)

Multilingual Umiven Ultion loudly says with a Morporkian accent: You call that
     slacking, Unlucky Charlie?  Lawks, our Charlie, now get out of my way. I'm
     ashamed by your slacking display. I'll show you how to do slacking proper.
     Just watch this, it'll be a real showstopper. To get good, you've got to
     put in the time. Your slacking seemed more like a war crime. Now slacking
     is not really my strong suit, but I'll surpass you and I'll help you to
     boot. That's it, our Charlie, your skills are starting to climb. Now feel
     you competence soar through my rhyme! Truly though, our Charlie, I hold
     you in high regard. Anyone can make slacking look easy, but you make it
     look hard.

Long Tricks

Haize's Passenger Broom (2nd place)

Haize exclaims with an Uberwaldean accent: I'm afraid I didn't actually get
     round to making a trick.  However, I thought I'd take this chance to show
     you all something really exciting I've been involved in playtesting!

Haize rummages around in her inventory fruitlessly, but after some cursing,
finally finds what she's looking for: a chunky-looking broomstick.

Haize channels energy and fuels the broomstick with so much power that it
sloshes out and pollutes the environment.  This is the way lovely sunsets are
made.

With a charming smile, Haize invites Unlucky Charlie to join her on the
broomstick.  Then with the flamboyance that only a witch could have, she
adjusts her pair of dark sunglasses and prepares for liftoff.

Unfortunately, the effect is somewhat spoiled when Haize starts running up and
down to bump start her trusty steed, with Unlucky Charlie precariously balanced
behind her.  At last she succeeds, and they take off into the air with a
WHOOSH!

Mid way through a lap of the area, a passing creator spots them and possesses
Unlucky Charlie!  As they land, he scolds Haize soundly for sharing features in
development, and dests the broomstick.  Haize looks chastened.

Lovejoy's Marshmallow Madness

Wee Wee Lovejoy Bellerose holds her rose-patterned bowl and whips air into her
sugar syrup to make it fluffy and nice.

Wee Wee Lovejoy Bellerose smiles enchantingly and croons to her marshmallow
mixture, convincing it to be smooth and delicious.

Wee Wee Lovejoy Bellerose turns out her marshmallow mixture into a buttered pan
and brews herself a nice cup of tea.

Wee Wee Lovejoy Bellerose sprinkles powdered sugar over her marshmallows and
summons a little sugar fairy for luck.

Wee Lovejoy smiles as she checks on her perfect pillowy marshmallows.

OnnaStick's Extreme Teatime (4th place)

OnnaStick clears her throat.

Whispering a curse, OnnaStick waves her wand at Lord Camelion Sinensis and
transforms him into dried leaves.

Chanting a naughty song, OnnaStick breaks off a handful of Lord Camelion
Sinensis and crushes it into her cup.

OnnaStick stares longingly into the cup and sighs, conjuring water to fill the
cup!

OnnaStick waves her wand beneath the cup and cusses a fire into being,
simmering its contents gently.

Waiting for Lord Camelion Sinensis to finish brewing, OnnaStick eyes the cup
thirstily and raises it to her lips.

Half-drunk, Lord Camelion Sinensis slips into darkness with a loud slurping
sound.

Umiven's Scandalous Steamer (3rd place)

Multilingual Umiven Ultion takes a teapot and some herbs from your pouch. She
places the teapot on the ground and puts the herbs in the teapot. Multilingual
Umiven Ultion waves her hands about and make a tiny raincloud above your
teapot, which fills the teapot with water.

Multilingual Umiven Ultion look for a fire source but can't seem to find one.
Meanwhile you notice Unlucky Charlie ogling Multilingual Umiven Ultion, which
she seems to notice. Multilingual Umiven Ultion slightly lifts up her dress
just enough to show her ankle to Unlucky Charlie and twirls it around.

Unlucky Charlie quickly looks the other way, pretending not to notice. Unlucky
Charlie can't resist but look at Multilingual Umiven Ultion's ankle. Slowly,
raunchy thoughts start evoking in his mind. Unlucky Charlie's head turns bright
red. Steam starts rushing out of his ears.

Multilingual Umiven Ultion picks up the teapot and sashays over to Unlucky
Charlie. She locks eyes with Unlucky Charlie and places the teapot on his head.
It takes only few moments for the tea to steam as well and finish brewing.

Umiven takes the teapot from Unlucky Charlie's head, who runs away red-faced,
and pour herself a nice cup of tea. Instead of steam, you see sparks rising
from the cup.

Prize update!

Quotid has very generously given us 700 royals from The Illuminated Teapot. I think it is safe to say I have never handled this much money before ever and I am also waddling under the weight because money is heavy. However, I bought a special bag for the royals and my bat's lugging them around now in her spiffy new bag.

Thank you Quotid!

To all the older witches who are freaking out about my bat carrying 700 royals:

I swapped my knapsack for her bag, so she is now carrying my knapsack and I am now carrying the royals, so please don't worry any more.

You could make a lot of money by participating in the Witch Trials! Lots of prizes and possibly attending gifts!

The fastest more usual way to make one-time high amounts of money is probably quests. But we can't discuss those on public channels. There is more information on the wiki and in the playing menu of the mud website.

Selling items to general shops (or fencing which is more profitable but you need valueing) is a rather simple way to make money, just use 'keep' on your items to not sell them by accident.
There's items that can regularly be found in some rooms, but the leftovers from other players are likely to be a lot more plentiful.
You can 'recover corpses' in places where other players hunt, take the items and then bury the corpses again. Djelibeybi is not too big, so offers a decent chances for this.

Most jobs/missions require an investment of exp before you can do them.
Helping Pennie Laced in Ohulan Cutash might not need skills or just a bit of perception.

Responding to quizzes (with good answers) in the AM Daily gives money, but just once a month. You could also write for the newspapers to make more money!

If you want to kill things then once you get some decent skills you can make money regularly. Exp-wise it's a near infinite sink though. And if you die you need money to buy lives.

That's what comes to mind.

In particular, I'd like to commend Andschana's Trick Creating site.
http://www.gunde.de/discworld/witches/trick.php

And the resources with regards to creating Tricks are:

1) Goodie Whemper's Research Notes

The original manual to making Tricks and still very useful!
http://discworld.starturtle.net/lpc/guilds/witches/notes/

2) Tricks at the Discworld MUD Wiki

https://dwwiki.mooo.com/wiki/Tricks

3) Tricks at the Disc Witches Guild (accessed via WayBack Machine)

https://web.archive.org/web/20100119080328/http://witches.gwendoline.at/tricks.html

After educing your Trick, you can test your Trick at Unlucky Charlie, located in Lancre Town. Please find information on how Charlie can be utilised on the wiki.
https://dwwiki.mooo.com/wiki/Unlucky_Charlie

Fly-tos in Lancre include Burberry and Krowbarr. Charlie is at the southern end of Lancre Town square, at the end of a path near Lancre Gorge.

If anyone has questions about Tricks, feel free to ask on (Witches)!
