Primary school Hexes
Rarity 1/20
A spellbook dedicated to the art of inflicting creative calamities on one's foes. Superstitious wizards claim that the book itself actually absorbs ill fortune, and carry it around as a talisman, but the effects of this seem subtle at best.

The Book of Misfortune is one of the main spell books for Hexes.
