Themes & Threats
Theme: A Magic Shop With Real Magic
Aspect: Merlinian Stronghold
Arcana Cabana is an honest to God Magic Shop, run by the last of Merlin’s apprentices (and the last practitioners of Merlinian Magic), Balthazar and Vernonika Blake. The shop contains everything from the skull of a Unicorn to wands which throw balls of fire. If a practitioner is in need of something specific for a ritual or spell, it can probably be found at Arcana Cabana. However, Balthazar and Veronika refuse to sell to anyone they do not trust. To purchase items from their store, one must first prove oneself worthy. Rumor also has it that, while retired, the couple might be willing to apprentice someone in their style of magic, should a worthy candidate be found.
