Artifact Information

A structure used in magical and ceremonial events


Good and Evil


An Altar is a structure used in magical and ceremonial rituals. Both the forces of good and evil have been known to use altars. According to Whitelighter rules, witches are supposed to have an altar room.[1] Altars are often filled with tools required in spell casting, such as candles, incenses, athames, fruits, herbs, and potions.
