What a Curse Can Do

One of the misconceptions about magick commonly promulgated by Hollywood films is that magick involves some kind of supernatural force or energy that usually is represented by lightning or something similar that shoots from the magician's hand or from some sort of tool like a wand. It's kind of like Dungeons and Dragons - you cast a spell, get a big light show, and then roll a bunch of dice for damage.

In real life magick works by apparently natural processes, but the job still gets done. As an example, here's what happened to someone who may have been the target of a curse. It's possible that this individual is lying rather than admitting to having some sort of mental illness, but under the right circumstances the Saturn evocation that I have posted here could prompt something similar.

The key is that you never specify the means by which a spell should work. If you want to injure someone, do you really care if they get struck down by a bolt of lightning or set themselves on fire? You shouldn't - magick is about results.
