Witch of Ciphers.
 I can fit thirteen
 Witches on the checkerboard;
 That must be the most.

Witch of Joy.

 If all of the witches are black,

 I'd say that we're on the wrong track;

 You can fit many more,

 I would say sixty-four!

 (Witches on the same side can't attack.)


Opal Apprentice.

 Thirteen is, um, what I was looking for.

 MIMULUS, that's a good guess, but I think

 It really goes against the Sphinx's Sixth.

 I trust with loyal faith, so I hate tricks

 That make you think a puzzle's something else.

 Cool solving, EDOGAWA! And I swear

I'll be the Witch of Promises someday.

SHIN, the Opal Apprentice, Witch of Promises


Witch of Secrets (aside, to audience)

 My spell has chained them all with misdirection;

The riddles that they've known become their fetters.

 Their sights set low, the truth escapes detection --

They cannot see outside the cage of letters!
