Occult paraphernalia

From Discworld MUD Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Occult paraphernalia are magic items (often jewellery) which help a witch create a magic circle.

The more occult paraphernalia a witch has, the lower a bonus in magic.spells.special she needs in order to circle, which will advise which are missing if the witch does not possess enough such items. The amount of paraphernalia required is dependent on the witch's magic.spells.special bonus - the higher the bonus, the less paraphernalia is required.

At a bonus of 280 of this skill, a witch needs only her witches hat; at a bonus of 300+, she needs no paraphernalia at all.
