Witchtober is over. It will be missed. By Draco specifically. Other people too probably but mostly Draco. The reason Stream Witch is the featured image is because everyone else had their face cut off by cropping. Also they’re good. Now it’s time for the big old witchapalooza repost with bonus witches and bonus lore. Curse those character limits but hey it’s fine and Draco’ll either never be satisfied with the limit or they’ll all become mini blags. Anyway let’s start with a never before seen friend witch.
Who is this friend? They seem awfully mysterious. Let’s solve it. This friend was in Draco’s notebook but was never scanned. When Draco started prepping Draco found them. Now they get some spotlight. Draco remembers this one was supposed to be something different. They succeeded. Lot of interesting shapes here. They seem either wise or scavenger-esque. Maybe both. Or a druid. They could be a Druid Scavenger Witch if they wanted. Like you’d be wandering through the tundra, bleeding from some kerfuffle, and this person’d pick you up and give you herbs inside a tree. The tree would have an iv bag somehow. High tech medical tree. They made it with magic and technology. There’s a smart brain in that face for sure. All those layers are warm so they’d need to be from somewhere cold such as the already mentioned tundra you were walking through. Probably somewhere south of those cold friends from the northern-eastern points of Paxaac. Draco during his inspiredness mentioned in the last blag decided that Paxaac while ruled by undead probably isn’t entirely united just based on how they do things. Also there weren’t always undead ruling there but there was almost always a there itself. Anyway many undead humor Deathmaster Cy’s desire for war but they’re mostly just trying to have fun. Even Cy is only like 70 30 for the whole war thing. Cy only wants to go after CynarqolastidaBgork because as you can guess from them both having Cy in their name, he is from there and he died there during the founding of the country. In the last blag the puppet Hoawon was retelling this story with puppets. It’s actually ironic because he was essentially killed by puppets. Didn’t consider that. Anyway, Cy claims the land but they as undead don’t need much so people like the above can live in peace. One of the reasons the empire has been able to retake some land is because once they conquer land they don’t really protect it. They do enough to hopefully build a line to get to their intended target but that’s it.
This cool witch is of course a Hunter Witch. Draco’s main balance for having overpowered magic is having deadly wildlife. Draco when modding games usually does this as well. Like how in XCOM 2 XCOM had existed for years before the game but you can outpace their technology significantly in only a few months. Meanwhile the aliens control the entire planet and many more but can only manage like two guy squads to guard a top secret facility? Draco had to change that and Draco has done similar things with these characters vs their environment and vs each other. Hunters have to work in teams to get out with minimal injuries but these wonderful magic fools have started documenting how many people you need to deal with specific threats and Draco just loves that. Admittedly it’s Draco who is writing them doing this so not that amazing but still. If you send one guy fishing and they kick the bucket but four guys were fine you’d send four over one every day of the week metaphorically. It’s important that when worldbuilding your countries still do science and make advancements. Avatar the Last Airbender is the prime example of that. This Witch has a cool whip sword. It can be a whip, a sword, a whipping sword. To be able to afford something like that they definitely know the importance of teamwork. Or they were born into wealth. Or their magic is super effective and they’ve avoided the particularly deadly beasts. It’s the first one but those other two were possibilities that Draco forgot about because hey cool whip sword.
Draco likes angels. Draco has them in large number in his world. Since they mainly live with the gods and don’t really get to get out much or choose where to live, Draco made it traditional for them to go out into the world for a year as a sort of angel rumspringa. It wasn’t till Draco got into D&D just a little while ago that Draco realized that angels just like everyone else can, you know, have babies, or not have babies, the whole shebang. Draco doesn’t usually think about that but it would definitely happen. Why did Draco think about Centaur Mermaid babies before half-angel babies or even half-elves. Draco has a city named Vello which has essentially absorbed the elven city of Nelnice to the point where no one calls it Nelnice anymore. Nalnice is a good name too. Maybe the city of New Nelnice will happen eventually. There would definitely be half-elves in Vello though. This is also right next to the Glambold Web where the spider people are from. That’d happen. A spider mermaid would just be a crustacean wouldn’t it? Crustaceans are arthropods just like arachnids. Interesting stuff. Anyway, witches usually fly with brooms, angels fly with wings, thus broom wings. It doesn’t make biological sense at all. Magic though. It happens.
People thought the red was blood. Draco had to recolor the red red in Photoshop because Draco has to scan in grayscale or else everything gets messed up and for some reason the scanner fills red into place where there wasn’t red. See that top with all the texture? That’d all be red. Found Witch later on got very messed up by this.
Very Splatoon inspired here. Draco bought amiibo specifically to get a witch costume in that. It also came with a suit of armor so armored witch yo. Too bad Draco’s characters were already too fashionable.
This witch needed a break. It’s been years and their ascension to the upper echelons of business with no connections or anything is unprecedented. They worked like a skeleton animated to do a task and that sucks because they could have just animated a skeleton to do the tasks and then gone to have some pastries or watched a live surgery. Apparently that was a real thing people did and since the capital city of Cohavy, Masellot is the capital because of the huge strides in medicine at the time, that would definitely be a thing that people do. Since it’s a lot of magic surgeries you see some interesting ones too. Like ooh three people need specific organs and one person is compatible with all of them so they have to regenerate that persons organs multiple times and then maybe they’ll take a few extras because you never know before sealing the person back up with their 12th new that specific organ they needed of the hour. What an unrelated tangent. Anyway, if this witch chose not to relax someone else might relax by watching this witch get new legs. It’s really weird writing about a mafia that cares about your health so much they’ll leave you bed ridden but this is apparently what Cohavy is.
Turns out that tangent was really related. Vampires are considered fine and dandy because of the advanced medical magic allowing for blood to be collected in large quantities. As mentioned in all the posts about cat people, cats have nine lives, cat people become vampires upon death and become even more vampired with each additional death. Cats are pretty cool.
Pants Witch was the most popular witch this year. Draco was worried she was too simple of a design but them’s the pants for ya. Draco’s process here was to look up “pants models” on Google images and then Draco did honestly a better job. None of those models emphasized the pants as much as Pants Witch here. This really emphasizes pants to a degree unseen in the world of fashion apparently.
Draco was worried since across the pond pants are underwear but it works either way. Almost all of these witches are wearing underwear. Draco is counting the goose from the featured image as someone who isn’t. Probably shouldn’t. Can you guess who else isn’t?
It’s Wyvern Witch.
Mining is actually important but Draco did a joke. Stone buildings are so lovable. Everyone has to have them. In Cohavy they don’t have the same mountains others have except for the one Mt. Egg which is actually the largest but that’s not suitable for various reasons. They mostly use quarries and geomancy to draw stone from the ground and then after you get enough people building with it you get people like Bridge Witch who can create stone bridges like Spider-Man. No reason not to reclaim those. It’s free stone.
Wyvern Witch was probably the least popular. There are no pants on either of these characters so a connection can be made. Wyvern are fine. They’re not dragons obviously… Draco was unsure whether the person should be the witch or the wyvern but hey why not both. Wyvern are known for having venom and usually venom is bad. There are always exceptions.
In Cohavy you get top notch medical care, your interests are supported, everyone can have a home, it’s relatively safe, they’ll resurrect you if you’re found dead in the street, you can pay some taxes. It’s less of an annual thing and more of a cap that gets witches like this at your door. One to do the face work of announcing what they’re doing, one to take what’s needed and carry it, and one to do harm. Also if you say make bridges with your magic and a bridge needs building that might be what they collect. It’s all about working together and lifting each other up. If you don’t want to work together you can leave and feed the wolves. If you don’t want to leave your neighbor will carry you to get new legs until you want to work together. Oh and there is an annual thing. These people only beat up the rich or in the case of the guy on the right they were the rich and got beat up and now this is them helping the community. Also the two on the sides were actually from the tests Draco did when he first got his tablet. They were both tax collectors then too but back then it was all for this jerky right guy. The Cassidy Family doesn’t take kindly to upstarts who don’t bend the knee metaphorically.
Draco took inspiration from Hitman’s Ezra Berg who is an interrogator. This Witch however begs even more questions and really wouldn’t require drugs like Ezra uses. Colorado is the worst map though and all Draco did was say having a masked interrogator is pretty cool character-wise. This is a different more magical character and Ezra only deserves some credit not all of it.
They’ve got a screw hat that almost appears to be going through their head but if you look closer it clearly wouldn’t. It just rests up top. Their neck also has a corkscrew appearance. Is their neck a screw? The witch behind them has strings. Maybe this is a puppet. There are eyes behind the mask. Maybe they’re just realistic fakes. If this was a puppet the screw not going through their head wouldn’t matter. Why avoid drilling into a fake head if it’d be spookier? Having the screw through the head would be more unsettling and it could be faked by a real person so why avoid it on a puppet? What are they even doing with their hands? While you’re thinking all that you have less time to think of a lie.
There isn’t much to say about Pillow Witch. They’re a witch and they’re all about those pillows. Bet they know some things though. All those things said in beds that have pillows. All those days when someone laid down to talk about their problems. Lotta people talk about being a fly on the wall but you ever think about what a pillow knows? Probably not.
We already talked about how medicine is a big deal in Masellot the capital city. Draco just wanted to draw more students after last year with the Fledgling Witches. Magic school is always an appealing idea and schools in worlds with magic are also going to be interesting. Anyone can take an interest in medicine and also Draco’s made the joke that people using healing magic attended a day of medical school so there had to be said schools. The middle witch was one of the fledglings. They’re into pretty much everything and they work too hard like Stress Witch. They’re younger though and and are doing this out of curiosity rather than necessity so they’ll probably be fine. The one with horns pushed into being all fighty and tough but they were like nah I want to heal people. The last one was just like oh plants are used for medicine sometimes and they’re all about plants.
Character limits made this description seem slightly meaner but the idea was anime protagonist. Demons in this world are a little more mundane but some with bite still exist. Basically the gods didn’t realize there were demons already since they bought the world used and when they found out they waged a day long war to destroy them and only those who really surrendered survived. After that they made new demons but they’re made the same way as angels and in one case a pair of demons were too lovable and the gods were like let’s just say they’re angels but the sort of like Hellicity manager said no and that’s where most of the tension comes from. They’re all essentially the same faction artificially divided. Fae are also in that faction but that has nothing to do with this.
Draco would like a cookie at this very moment and no matter how long this takes to post that will remain true. These are specifically Chocolate Chip and Draco hasn’t had a good one of those in a while. This witch seems like they’re cooler than they should be. Guess that’s the power of owning your aesthetic.
There isn’t that much room in the big city. There are plenty of places outside the city but that’s less appealing. Being a House Witch is very nice thing to do but you can’t actually leave the house you’re using. It’s also very important to not screw anything up as that’s like a car crash but with houses. Especially if someone needs a specific environment like they always need their house on fire or filled with water.
Gentleman thieves are a thing. It’s less needed in a place where to an extent that’s already done and the norm but hey these don’t all have to make sense. They could be living somewhere else. It’s complicated. Draco just liked Persona 5 a lot. Also just because the Cassidy Family tries real hard to beat down the greedy they aren’t all seeing. There could be plenty of minor minor criminals who need stealing from. Oh and there could be some hiding from subservient group leader people like Ghost Witch or Sheep Witch. They would be dumb to do it but you never know. Guess this makes sense.
Draco’s had this idea for a while but it seemed hard to do with ink. It was not. The hard part was that there was a crowd. Draco planned to have them in the crowd and it would be a more dynamic crowd but that would have taken too much time. There was going to be a waldo element. Some of these people are from the same group as Ghost Witch. It was nice to draw a centaur since centaur exist and live with humans here to the point that they’re basically considered human variants. They do leave human skeletons upon death(In this world they do. Can’t remember the main reason that was decided but it is a thing and the gods did make everyone from a human base that they bought off the world creation asset store on sale) though so maybe they have a point.
Draco really enjoys Hitman 2016 and Hitman 2. Haven’t played the others because the systems are how Draco likes them and the older games while surely good would have little annoying things in them that Draco would dislike. If they remade say the popular missions from say Hitman Blood Money in the current game since they are doing the whole games as a service thing Draco’d pay for that DLC. Anyway about this witch they’re a bit duck heavy but hey it’s a reference and it’s fine.
Pebbles are actually what most armies of magic users would use since you only need to momentarily project them. There’s only so much magic in the air at any given time and using it all would be bad for everyone. Pebbles are efficient projectiles when propelled by magic. Now if you have a real non-magic weapon maybe that’d be better but if you’re going for magic, cheap, and efficient, go pebbles. This Witch isn’t being the most efficient with pebbles but this witch also isn’t fighting in a battle. They’re just posing for the Witchtober sketch.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and look at all those beautiful eyes. After their glow up we all developed crushes on Bug Witch. Don’t lie.
Sammy doesn’t always use those little drone golem things to fight. Usually it’s something more like what Hit Witch has but Draco didn’t want to draw two of those. Sammy prefers to keep a distance because despite being able to stun people by making them take involuntary actions like sneezing or throwing up enough people could easily overwhelm her while the others vomit. The little drones help prevent that but they are weak. The pose is a little pop star and the pointing is unnecessary for her magic but it’s more dynamic and oh wait she’s directing the drones. Draco wasn’t a hundred percent on that one but that’s definitely it.
She’s actually from this tweet here. The hat hides the shaved head here or maybe it grew back some. We’ll never know probably.
This never before seen witch known as Gunslinger Witch uses finger guns to attack and wears boots with wheels in the heels. They’re another Soldier Witch but not a Cohavan soldier unless they’re like retired and now a mercenary. Mainly they just roll around finger gunning people. Their allegiance at the moment is not consequential. Ok maybe they are definitely a mercenary. Mercenary or a wanderer who causes a ruckus wherever they roll with their wheel boots.
Along with a basic map available via magic everyone also has directions to the nearest place of rest, food, or medicine. It does not tell you which one is which.You need stitches and oops you walked into a tea shop. These bits of magic and the one that lets everyone speak relatively the same language were all carved into enchanted stone pillars by the most powerful magic users of the time. They keep those all the way up on Mt Egg because range and all that. Anyway it’s helpful to know where things are so ideally Map Witches will go out and document that but it’s dangerous so they shouldn’t go alone. The weird murder table sawblade leg tentacle will hep but maybe teaming up with Hunter Witch would help.
Draco likes summoning magic. This witch is interesting because they could definitely outmatch plenty of these witches they seem like they’re on the weaker side. Probably because they lack agency and force of will which are two of Draco’s big favs to not lack. Also while they could block ranged and melee attacks from traditional weapons with their inhuman reflexes and dodge many magic ones a fireball isn’t deflectable by them and if the radius is large enough they couldn’t dodge it. Hit Witch with a range that exceeds their perception and Art Witch’s nonsolid paint attacks would clean the floor with them no problem. Sammy could too but forcing this witch to vomit would do nothing. Bug Witch would have no trouble either because you can’t effectively fight many bugs with that weapon.
A never before seen witch. Draco wasn’t 100 on the Incorruptible Witch so Draco did this Cat Paladin Witch. They probably aren’t incorruptible either but they try. That’s all you can ask really. Well you can ask for perfection but you’ll probably be disappointed. They accidentally wore regionally appropriate gear for CynarqolastidaBgork. That is the most likely place for a Cat Paladin but Draco didn’t try for that. Happy accidents.
The story of Saby was actually depicted in a pic Draco did before Witchtober but had not yet posted. This is basically it though. It was of a character who had a stain glass four panel strip of their crowning achievement but that didn’t take up the entire wall so they made some for their other immortal friends like Saby. There are robots and androids as well as parts of robots and androids that you can find underground because this world is used but they just call them golems. The puppet guy in the last blag was one such android. Saby’s workshop is about a real life city block away from an ancient ruin with such parts so she had some inspo. Nowadays it’s been pretty picked clean but Saby got plenty and there are always more ruins to find. That’s why mining is really important.
Why is inspo short for inspiration when inspiration has an i where the o is? Unrelated but worth thinking about.
Another witch who could easily defeat Incorruptible Witch. This was specifically referencing the Fire Emblem Weapon Triangle but a lot of games give archers advantage against fliers. Not sure why magic attacks don’t also get that advantage but oh well. And Javelins. And really all throwing weapons. Oh and also it was spoilers for Fate/ Whatever They’re On About This Time. This Witch is cool and also probably in charge of something. Probably some minor royalty. If they just suddenly gained power they wouldn’t stop so it makes sense they were born into their seat and don’t have any reason to grab for power. There aren’t any sort of craven weak leaders in Cohavy right now and the leader leader The wonderful Katrina Cassidy who is most know for their failures where they accidentally go ham and leave a visible burn mark on the magic map. Being good at axes and bad at dying puts this witch on the lower end of the Cohavan nobility unless that axe has some cool powers. The hat is magic for sure and we’ve seen a few of those attack hats in this years Witchtober. Bet the person who came up with that is rich.
Speaking of nobility another never before seen witch appears. They have a loyal guard witch and also an owl.
Their guard has one of the Might Swords. Legendary magical weapons created because someone wanted a mighty sword made but forgot to put the y on the note they sent the blacksmith. Instead they created a sword of possibility and also many other swords which they could have possibly made. Side note it would be hilarious if autocorrect changed it back. So they made one sword but because possibility they ended up with somewhere near 50 Might Swords which they could have potentially made all with different abilities relating to possibility. The number is hard to keep track of because at least one specifically has the ability to stop existing temporarily. There could be more than one but people barely remember the one and only because it exists right now.
This noble family is known for their tradition of pouring their souls and the souls of their retainers into one vessel instead of dying by natural means. This is so the next family head can gain their power. To be honest it doesn’t work great because it’s done when they’re very old and weak on their deathbeds so not much raw power is gained but there is wisdom if you can filter out the noise. None of them have had to learn to count for generations. Also they could have just figured out the whole lich thing and one of them admittedly did but they’re no longer on speaking terms.
Luck is a fun idea. This witch has luck at the expense of others. Really not someone you want to group with but maybe declining them would be worse. There are a few references here but let’s all appreciate that Draco spent a long time on all those mean time consuming bricks instead of explaining any of them. The boulder was difficult too. The witch here makes it all worth it but still. She had good luck and looked good while Draco had bad luck and hand pain.
Draco figured out the glass thing while drawing Found Witch. When you have grey or any other color to work with it becomes easier. This witch is also part of Ghost Witch’s group but mostly as a tester of potions. Potion Witch knows when a potion would kill someone who isn’t Potion Witch. Potion Witch is also blessed with the inability to be killed by what she drinks. This extends to the ability to swim through something like magma as long as her mouth is open. There are so many magical effects going on her only weakness would be dehydration and that isn’t likely. Using a spell to dehydrate her would probably be stopped by some anti-magic potion she consumed so you’d need to go for the genuine natural sort. For a long time too because there could be some sort of retain hydration potion effect going on. Plus all the resurrection potions will mean you’ll have to do so multiple times depending on what sort of resurrection potion it was and maybe on death they multiply. Potion Witch is a mess of potion effects. Lucky for everyone they are nice despite all the rage potions, mostly because of all the calming potions. Also that hat is one of the best ideas Draco has had yet.
So the eye mask witch has angel blood in their veins. They also have butchers blood. In Cohavy just like how they remove organs and regrow them they don’t kill the animals they use for meat. They take the meat and then heal them. As long as you do the healing magic and removal at the same time it’s not any more painful than shaving but it is disturbing so best not to look. They’re a medical school graduate so they know what they’re doing here. The shapeshifter is just a shapeshifter but they came up with the idea so that’s nice for them. Combining their magic they can make suits that make you look like a celebrity or for a little more make basically you but with that thing about yourself that you hate changed. This is basically plastic surgery. It’s plastic surgery and it’s hard to tell which is more gruesome. Well this is probably worse looking but it’s more effective and if something went wrong it’d probably go so wrong that no one would be able to complain about it. They’re still one of the better businesses which can change appearances. Oh and they’re expensive. Even though it’s mostly painless you’re still paying someone to have their skin removed temporarily for you. They’re a shapeshifter so it’s literally no time at all but it’s still horrendous. It’s never going to be cheap even for just a partial change because that takes more precision and time.
Companion and Affiliate are very similar terms. When Draco was making the list Draco knew Stream Witch had to return. They’re a good witch. Making ads and chat is also fun. The chatter with the username YourGoddessForeum is genuinely Foreum the goddess mentioned here. She doesn’t think mortals know about spice so send her some spicy recipes so she may berate you mercilessly.
As for the goose, we’ve all heard of the goose. Also Draco clearly wants to play more Fire Emblem but there is no time. Three Houses is a good Fire Emblem so far. Draco would have preferred an ending where you force everyone to be friends but oh well.
It was hard to pick what spot to do. This was a spot that has several landmarks but isn’t a dense cluster of buildings like the Necromet or the Clothing Consortium’s district. It also had to be one that had been mentioned before for convenience. Draco forgot that the MEES was actually almost directly behind Saby’s workshop. Behind the MEES is actually Croffski’s workshop but you’d never be able to see it. Also in the area is the first witches house and a ton of good places for soup. The soup is so good there. You have to get some soup when you’re there.
Stepping into the ring is another form of entertainment. While we’ve talked about entertainment there probably isn’t enough. In CynarqolastidaBgork boxing is one of the ways they do trials. There is also one where it’s basically volleyball. The conditions there are significantly worse than in Cohavy so trial by combat and the bloodsports that Stream Witch likes aren’t a thing. Some of their trials could migrate over but they aren’t friends so it’s unlikely.
And now it’s time for the last never before seen witch of this post. The very first witch Draco drew this Witchtober. Watcher Witch. It’s an ironic title. They can see all those which would go unseen but they’d rather not. They pretend not to see. They can ee them though. Just as the things they see see them too. You’ve seen some pictures today as well. Will you stand courageously before them? Anyway there are lots of invisible creatures in the world. That’s who the Brairlot Community is at war with. They’re the Rejecyans. They can only harm people who can see them so even the people who find out about them from the Brairlot Community rarely care. It’s frustrating for the people of the Brairlot but they tend to look on the bright side.
