    Default Witches!

    Not sure if anyone has seen one, but here's a screenshot of an elusive witch in M2TW. I havent yet encountered her with an army or agent, so I have no idea what she does. I'm guessing she spreads Paganism, but I honestly have no clue.

    There the same as heretics, except they can either (1) kill your priest while he tries to denounce her. (2) If they remain near generals that can give them odd traits (or maybe retinues) like cursed, or something that has to do with witchery.

    This is what I gathered from the manual, I have no idea because as soon as I see a witch I burn her.

    I burn them too, but I believe they spread paganism.

    They can give your local generals bad traits, in fact one of my spanish generals who was starting to look quite promising got warts. Yea I know it probably wasnt her but try tellin the peasants that, smelly little idiots. Next thing you know he's gone from Warty to Ugly and he's absolute crap as the soldiers seem to only want to follow a guy they'd want to date or something. Looks like the Spanish army needs to give the men some time off, they've been spending too much "quality time" with each other it seems. Just friends spooning, pshhaw!

    One has to hunt them heritics and withches down ASAP. Good for your priests. Assassinate them if you just cant get a priest there quickly. I usually keep a decent one in every area just for this stuff. Also, if playing a Catholic faction I wack thos Imams quickly too.

    Like Von Nanega, I also like to use assasins on those pesky witches and heretics. Easy killing experience.

    Burn witches! BURN THEM!

    One popped up near my faction heir a while ago and gave him warts. It's a bad trait.

    First you have to do the 'goose test'
    If she stays afloat in the water she is light as a goose and therefore must be a witch. If she drowns, well......... too bad.

    So burn her! burn her!

    They spread heresy, not paganism. I had one pop up on Crete, where there was no heresy at all, and it took a turn to create a priest there. He burned her the following turn, but I had 6% heresy on Crete when he was finished with her.

    I can't get assassins to kill anything other than rebel captains. Believe me, I've tried. On witches, heretics, preists imams and cardinals. I get to watch some amusing movies, but thats it. *shrugs*

    Since I cannot get them to kill anything, then I cannot train them, and they end up as useless, half-naked men.

Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?"

    The only Witch I ever met, near Zagreb, managed to kill three of my Priests before my hastily arrived Cardinal meassured her against a duck, and found them of equal weight.
