Countless books devoted to the study of fire and light magic as well as potential risks and little known features. Even adepts of dark magic may find instructions in ancient manuscript, or at least consult with their mentor. But witches' abilities are unique so that they can be developed only by relying on intuition. Often somebody of witches creating spell which kills him after or even before first using. Others possess stunning, but narrowly specialized skills, so they doomed to remain in secondary roles. Only few of witches had become legendary and created grimoires which contain instructions for the next generations of witches, if they inherit the same abilities.Countless books devoted to the study of fire and light magic as well as potential risks and little known features.
