Often overlooked by high school guidance counselors as a viable career option, witchcraft is nonetheless an extremely effective means of combat and self-actualization.
One such circle in the heart of France has mastered this nuanced art form with far more skill than their peers, turning an otherwise harmless practice into full-fledged combat viability.
Each member of the group has her own area of expertise, whether it be love, symbols, demons, potions or curses. Together they form a world-renowned team, though their motives remain unclear. Men who've made the mistake of becoming intimately involved with Eva, Margo and Sadie nonetheless report them as being "completely crazy, messed up witches."

Saying goodbye is never easy, but bleeding profusely afterward can make it especially difficult.
Periapt of Proof Against Poison and Other Things
These effects are fairly common, and some characters rely on these effects for much of their damage. The Periapt is effectively a lock-out for these abilities at worst, and a complete reversal at best, if your opponent isn't paying attention!
Though its usefulness might seem questionable at first, the Coffin Nails will guarantee that a slow, potentially game-changing attack (such as Margo's Hallucinogenic Incense) can't be canceled with death -- or at least not the first time.
The Black Book
Take some guessing out of Kongai, and lock your opponent in place. The Black Book can really ruin Marquis Le Morte's day, or anyone else reliant on switching in and out frequently.
Tarot Card: The High Priestess
The High Priestess - Least effective against teenage male players unable to resist building a boob-filled Kongai deck. Will affect masculine robots, but not young villagers whose gender can't be determined by the high priestess.
