Many communities turn to a local dabbler or hedge witch for their inexpensive folk magic, as the powers of clerics and sorcerers are too expensive for them to afford. These minor casters counsel townsfolk on matters of love or weather, mix medicines and potions, expel spirits, create charms, read fortunes, or do anything else that makes ends meet. Hedge witches usually live on the fringes of civilization and are just as often feared as loved by the communities to which they cater.
