another idea: bee stingers still have painful chemicals in them even after the bees die. or one could consider tying a victum up, and laying them on a wasps or bees nest that somehow (lol) ended up on the ground. though there are certain bees that live in holes in the ground. Fire ants are another good variation. Go to Comment
why, of course! there are many sadists out there, and so few sites in which they can share their creative ideas. I am one of them (though i do not act on it).... though i must admit i am typically more masochistic, hence the name. I truly enjoy this site. It is rather a relief to know that i am not the only one out there who is like this, and it is a great pleasure to share ideas. Go to Comment
Tarot Cards are used by Magic folks to predict the future (cartomancy). Since the present becomes the future through the interplay of elementally alligned forces, the tumble of cards can give clues to the way the pattern of elements will be in the future.
This means a wizard will have a deck of cards with them. Since cards were used to train wizards in legerdemain, Since they have cards with them, they frequently know how to use them. Guild magic users often have a knack for fancy shuffles, palming cards, and a variety of card tricks and games.
