Spell Packets are pretty easy to make if you follow these simple rules. They are
also a must if you are a magic-casting character!
- Use squares of cloth to make each packet. White packets are used by
orange packets are for gas globes. Players often use different fabrics so they can
tell their packets from those of other players. Others like to write names/symbols
on their packets so they can be retrieved. You want the squares to be big enough so
you can have a tail to hold onto.
- Place some birdseed in the center of each square. Do not use any other contents -
beads, rice, seeds, and other items hurt when they hit. Remember if you make bad
packets, someone can pick them up and throw them at you! Some players dip their
packets in cornstarch to leave white marks on targets, but do not pour cornstarch in the
packets. Birdseed is also recycled because the birds and squirrels love it when our
packets are destroyed.
- Tie the packets with elastics, cord, tapes. Do not use twist-ties - the metal
hurts! Don't tie the packets so hard that they feel like rocks.
- Make lots of extra packets because you will lose most of the ones you throw. You
don't want to get caught in a battle and run out of packets!
