Users can place a curse on whatever they wish (people, places, objects, etc.). The exact effects can be nearly anything the user desires, ranging from minor annoyances to tortuously extended death.

Among the most common effects are misfortune/bad luck, various sicknesses, infertility, physical defects/ugliness, etc. when affecting people, breaking or working wrong or causing problems when used on objects and tendency to draw various disasters for places. Traditional magical curses include transforming the victim fully or partially into an animal/monster that fits the offense, blood-lust, insanity, unstoppable rages, unhealing wounds, misshapen/inhuman offspring, and a whole host of other effects.

Curses are well known to create and induce supernatural anomalies. Anomalies are capable of warping reality too, such as dimensional rifts appearing on any surface like the ceiling, wall, or floor, and among other things like various objects appearing out of thin air, etc.





  • Curse Immunity
  • Limited by what the user knows.
  • User may not be immune.
  • Curse Negation and Curse Absorption can undo most curses.
  • There may be ways to reverse/undo curses.
  • May be involuntary and triggered by extreme emotions.
  • May not be able to undo one's own curses.
  • Consequences/effects may be unpredictable.
  • In order to get a boon, from a cursed object, a curse has to be put on a person, in order to get its boon, if not the curse will come back to the one who did the curse. (Friday the 13th TV series)
  • May work on a "first come, first serve" basis - meaning that an already cursed recipient is rendered insusceptible to subsequent curses, until the one from prior is lifted.
