Witches are famous (or infamous) for their curses. Witch players are encouraged to come up with unique and specific curses. Some suggestions are:

- The witch can target any specific skill or feat and inflect a -10 penalty.

- The target becomes unlucky. Every non-combat role receives a -5 penalty.

- The target is cursed with emarrasing themselves in all social situations. Inappropriate bodily noises, devices fail to work, spill drinks, food.

- The target can't help but shout everything they are trying to say.

- The curse effects the target's family line instead.

- The curse has a delayed onset or will only begin under certain circumstances.

- The curse can only be removed under special circumstances.
