Magickal Conception is a complicated spell in which the witch can make a woman pregnant by magic. This is possible even for female witches. The child is normal, with inherited traits from both parents. If the witch that casts the spell is a woman, the child will always be a girl. A female witch can cast this spell on herself and give birth to an exact copy of herself.

The target can be willing or not. A willing target needs not make any type of save, except to see if the spell was successful. An unsuspecting or unwilling target can make a Will check to avoid the effects.

Both the casting witch and the recipient target take 1 point of Constitution damage. This is regained after normal sleep. This can be dangerous to anyone already at Constitution loss.

To determine if the casting and impregnation was successful the caster and the target both need to make checks vs. their Constitution scores (after the Constitution penalty for casting is applied).

Material Components: Semen or blood from the spellcaster. Hair, blood or flesh from the prospective mother (material component). Candles to be lit during the ceremony. The Chalice (divine focus, symbol of the Goddess) is used to contain all the material components. A plea to the Goddess must be made to transfer the life energy of the witch to the prospective mother. The witch also pays 1,000 XP for this casting in life force.

History: This spell is quite old, but the first recorded use of it was by two female witches in service of Diana. Belen researched the spell so that she and her lover Damara could have a child of their own. Known then as “A Spell to Ease a Mother’s Sorrow”, it appeared in a collection of spells known as the -Dianic Rites-. Other witches known to have used this spell are Liath and the druidess Bodhmal (but they were unsuccessful) from pagan Celtic Ireland, and the witches Saillie and Teamhair a couple of hundred years later. It has since been copied many times and at least a dozen variations are known to exist.
