Fellow wiccans please help, how do I tell if it's cursed? A self proclaimed wiccan gave me a necklace, we do not get along so I was taken by surprise when she handed it to me, I am wondering how to tell if she did place a curse on it or a charm or spell, I am wiccan but my expertise lays more in the energy fields and spiritual world, thank you for any answers, Blessed Be!
it's beaded, metal beads, i feel uneasy with the energy but I wish to know what her motives were, it's black magick so she'll already get it back but I'm curious to what it's cursed with
As I read the answers, my first thought was, "Wow, it's like tech support for Wiccans". Then I laughed my ass off.
You'll have to cast "Detect Magic" or "Read Magic" on it. Both are 1st level spells, so it should be fairly simple.
It was cursed, with charm of public humiliation, it worked. Post the wiccans myspace and she will get it back three fold.
It is indeed cursed. When the goblins show up (and they will!), draw your vorpal sword and roll a 20 to slay.
Take it to a Catholic priest to have to "Cleansed" they are like level 70 elites!!!
The best response came from the reality based community.
What's the difference between a "cursed" necklace, and one that isn't? Does it weigh more or less? Does it look different? Does its chemical composition change; or can we detect any radiation emanating from it?
The answer to all these things is, of course, no. There is no way to tell if something is cursed, because there is no such thing. The necklace is just a physical object. The idea of "cursing" is simply a belief you hold: that some person may, because of malicious intent, speak magical words, and then somehow, your life will be detrimentally affected by wearing it.
