Notes

The bond of loyalty between a talisman and its owner may be broken by casting Nanny Revere's Traitorous Talisman on it.

If the talisman is bonded to someone other than the caster, then the bond can only be broken if both the caster and that person are playerkillers, so witches should be very careful when forming bonds for others.
