How to wear your magical scarf

Magic items could have different effects depending on how you wear or use them, for example:

Think about a magical sword, it could have different effect when you:
  • Hold it in your hand
  • Keep it in your scabbard
  • When you draw it 
  • Hold it close to your chest
  • When it taste blood
  • When you strike it in the ground
  • When you pray over it
  • When it break (or when a other blade strike it) 

Jewelry can have depending effect depending of:
  • how you wear them
  • where you wear them (neck, ankle, wrist for necklace) 
  • when they are in their jewelry box
  • when you hold them in your hand 
  • if wear them for a specific event 
  • when you wear them with a other item

It could be fun to experiment with this.

Spooky City

I drew the spooky city that I generated with the Anxiety Wizard's city generator.
I may eventually turn the city into a free zine.
