FROM THE ARCANE HANDBOOK OF THE CONJURE GUARD

The base of the uniform is the same as all rangers. The grey scout shirt and the iconic orange neckerchief. Aside from that, the Conjure Guard wear black gloves, a magical hat of their choosing, and a small cloak, mantle, or capelet. The capelet can be colored Brown, Orange, Purple, or Black… though other colors have been seen in our ranks.

Each color can sometimes represent the interests and personality of the WITCH or WARLOCK:

ORANGE – Spirited, go-getter, loyal, fun – often leaders. Inspiring Magics.
BLACK – Introverted, studious, intelligent, quiet, peculiar, loner, dark humor. Darker Magics.
PURPLE – Quizzical, playful, prankster, talented, funny, risk-taker. Wilder Magics.
BROWN –  Down to earth, practical, dependable, robust – good common-sense. Principled Magics.

These do not spell out the ONLY facets of a Conjure Guard Ranger, as they are complicated creatures, each with their own personal quirks and noble intentions.

One of the practices of the conjure guard is the art of  WITCH STITCHES.

This arcane practice infuses the capelet with its mystical might. It entails using special thread to stitch glyphs and sigils onto the Capelet that provide certain benefits like protection from Scrying, sympathetic magic, and detection by those with less than savory intent. The magic is always protective in nature, and is never used to cause harm.
