& point system


SKILL POINTS

Not only do your character's have access to Craft on Witchlight, but they also have the chance to enhance their abilities in particular Craft Spells. Below you will find 10 Craft Categories and a list of spells within each category. When creating a new character you are gifted 15 points to spend on Craft Strengths. You can have up to 8 skill points in any given spell.

Skill often trumps raw power. If you have more skill points in Healing Webs with your Rose Jeweled Healer, their Webs will be more effective than an Opal Healer who has no skill points in Healing Webs. This is a fun way to add more depth to Craft use on the site. You can buy and earn more skill points as well. To earn a skill point through role play, you must complete a thread in which your character practices or is mentored in the skill.

Below are anchor links that will take you directly to each category. Enjoy!

It is rare, but at times Priestesses may receive communication from the abyss, a sort of enlightenment, that they can use to further theirs, and others, religious understanding.
