    Ha! On the cigarette thing.

    In one of my novel settings, there’s a Demoness who smokes quite often. She happens to be the Demoness of Smoke so she habitually alters the nature of the smoke to remove carcinogens from the smoke.

    Since High Magic is basically telepathically borrowing the tricks of a God or Demon, there exists a very easy spell in Black Magic allowing people to detoxify a cigarette. It has to be cast for each cigarette though.

    This doesn’t sound like much until you realize that the price of Black Magic is owing the source Demon/Dark God a “favor.” And these build up over time.

    The Demoness in question doesn’t call in her favors often. And it itself is a very minor spell that cast once barely rates even a full minor favor. But combine the rarity that the Demoness calls in favors, the cumulative nature of favors, the addictiveness of nicotine, which she doesn’t bother to remove, and the rest and there are tons of people out there so deeply in debt to a Demoness that they’re unlikely to get free.

    Mostly because the incautious sort that think smoking is cool.

      Glad you liked that aspect of the setting. It’s often fashions and habits that seem to evoke the feeling of different eras, and even the different cultures of those times, so I figured I’d do something along those lines. I also like the subtle deviousness of your demoness.
