Cast Hag's Blessing
Shoo fireflies


  • Fireflies can only be summoned outside, but will follow the witch inside once she has them.
  • Being attacked by a thousand fire-breathing insects isn't much fun, don't start with them.
  • Multiple castings bring lots of swarms, which makes it brighter.
  • Casting a few lots, with a gap between, means you can have a rolling set (so when one swarm flies off, you are not left in the dark. But use that as your cue to re-cast.)
  • Can be imbued, creating an amethyst crystal.
