Can’t use metal shields as a Druid? Creative alternatives, time!
Water Druid? A large, dome shaped coral, a huge seashell, a massive octopus beak, or a turtle shell
Underdark, Swamp, or Night? A giant mushroom cap, a giant bird’s beak, a slab of slate
Forest or Plains? A giant acorn cap or nut shell, or a tortoise shell
Desert? A branch of dead wood as an arm shield for parrying, or a plate from a giant scorpion’s chitin
Still not enough? How about a dragon’s belly scale or pieces from bones or fossils, like a half of a ribcage?
A carved out giant tooth? A lid of a woven basket? A piece of a giant eggshell? What about a wheel broken off of a cart?
You don’t just need to take a wooden shield. Get creative. Use a dinosaur shoulder blade!
tl;dr will be at the bottom as this is quite long story.
Names, places and dates have all been changed to conceal people’s identity in this event.
Let me set the scene first, I had joined the Army direct from “high school” (for my colonial friends) and had a great time, however my contract was up and I had decided that I really wanted to go back into further education and redo my high school (As I failed everything as I was so focused on joining the Army at the time) with the intention on going to University. So, with that in mind I did not sign on for another contract with the Army I just left.
I know herbs and crystals are really useful in spells, but I thought it would be nice to compile a list of things that are also helpful in certain spells. Feel free to add on!
💡 Light bulbs! Hence the emoji. Burnt-out light bulbs are great for curses, keeping things hidden, and other things like that. You could also use the glass part of it as an unconventional sachet. (I might be working on a spell with a light bulb.. hehe 😉)
💡 Belts! They’re great for spells involving strength, endurance, and support. You can also draw sigils on the inside of a belt you’re wearing to hide them!
💡 Nut shells! It’s easy enough to find a bag of pistachios or pecans. The shells can be used in protection spells, PLUS they have the same correspondences as whatever the plant they came from. The shells can be crushed into a powder or left as is.
💡 Headphones! They can be used in spells involving focus and shutting people up. Not to mention you can enchant your headphones as you listen to music while doing a spell.
💡 Balloons! Balloons have a variety of uses. You can draw a sigil on one and then pop it to activate it. You can use them for happiness spells, or just spells that make you feel more free. Balloons could even help with astral travel!
💡 Paperclips! They’re great for simple and cheap binding spells. ‘Nuff said.
Anyways, that’s all I can think of for now 😅 but I hope this was helpful! Have fun!
A spell to dull and hopefully eliminate your unwanted feelings for another person.
•Passionflower (often found in teas)
•Hot pepper or hot sauce
•any clear water that represents change or new beginnings
•sealable plastic bag
1. Crack open as many pistachios as you like. Bottle the shells and put them off to the side (they may be useful in a future spell that calls for pistachios or nut shells). Finely chop the nuts.
2. Stir passionflower, flour, and pistachio bits together with a plastic knife or butter knife if you only have access to silverware.
-The knife represents cutting out these unwanted feelings from your heart and mind. Pistachios can be used in ending a love spell and passionflower mixed with flour dulls romantic feelings.
2. Using a teaspoon, pour a bit of pepper or hot sauce onto your tongue (only as much as you can tolerate)
3. Using a separate teaspoon, spoon the flour mixture onto your tongue.
-This will “extinguish” any flame you have for this person, similar to throwing flour onto a grease fire.
4. Spit everything out into an empty cup. Spit as much as you like until everything is out of your mouth. (Take a break to drink some milk if you need to get rid of the spice on your tongue)
5. Fill the cup with about a ¼ inch of salt. Enough to completely cover the bottom and create a barrier between the spit and you.
6. Fill the remainder of the cup with water. Pour onto the wall of the cup, not directly into the salt.
-This will “dissolve” all feelings you had for them and drown them out with rational and clear thinking. DO NOT STIR
7. Let this concoction sit in the fridge for at least an hour.
-This will make sure to cool any warm feelings you have left for this person.
8. When finished, pour the contents into your plastic bag and seal it shut. Once fully closed state “so mote it be” and toss it into the trash! (Outside of your bedroom)

This is a token. I am giving it to you. Because I have nothing else to give you. Because I am very poor. You can keep it as a reminder that I exist if you wish. Or you can exchange it for something else and forget about me if you wish.
The choice is yours
These are poignant words that were left along with a token at the Foundling Hospital in London in the 1700s.
The Foundling Hospital was one of the great charitable achievements of the 18th century. Women who, by whatever unfortunate circumstance, were unable to raise their baby, could (if they got through the lottery-style entrance process) leave their child at the Foundling Hospital, where the child had the chance of a new life and new identity.
Lots of mothers left a small token (usually a scrap of fabric, but other kinds of small, unassuming tokens were left too) with their baby, so that if they were ever able to return for their child following a change in circumstance, they could be reunited. This rarely happened, however, as a lot of mothers never recovered or, if they ever did return, found that their child had not lived.
