Description

Description

The purpose of a magic circle is to contain magic and to strengthen magic performed within it. Any magic performed inside a circle will cause a build-up of energy in the circle's boundaries, possibly causing harm to anyone attempting to pass the circle. Wet hens will need tonnes of witchy paraphernalia, while more experienced witches need only a good squint, although a witch's pointy hat always helps.
