Okay man, here’s a few thoughts. If you try to openly curse them in front of a room of people you are just asking to have your efforts undone, for the same reasons “to keep silent” is a good policy. Especially if they all laugh at you. Laughter is a wonderful banishing, and a room of it could render your curse null. Bardic magick at it’s finest right there, lol.
Secondly, infanticide? You can do better than that, and you could be opening a can of worms. If you openly and successfully death curse this kid in front of a room full of people and there is another magician there, what do you think could be a result? Maybe nothing. Maybe that person is the kid’s parent’s friend and he tries to kill you. C’mon, you can be more creative.
I saw King Paimon suggested in this thread and I could not suggest better. He can aid you in influence, and He can also manipulate. People love a victim these days, so that is honestly the route I would go. Play with their emotions so that you can prey on the situation in total.
Either way, though, I still think openly cursing them is destined to fail. Hell, just the fact that we are talking about it right here right now on BALG means it probably won’t. I know I am not the only one who cringed a bit at the mention of infanticide. Forum rules state we cannot use magick on each other, but it says nothing about not using magick to protect someone else without targeting a member. (BTW that was not a veiled threat, just my musings when I got the vibes from this thread; we are cool)
