That doesn't mean the dagger's "sorcery" impacted the witchcraft.   He
may have chosen it simply because it was a high-quality dagger. :)

But not in the sense that the witchcraft is assisting the sorcery.  It's
more that it makes it easier for Vlad to perform the sorcery.  Like the
various mnemonics we use to remember hard to remember items.

The only genuine hybridization I recall, and I've never been clear on
the actual details, is the trick Daymar and Vlad used to find Mellar.
And that was in "two steps", so I'm not sure if it counts. :)

Come to think of it, I've wondered if what Daymar does in regards to
psionics is a separate thing from sorcery, perhaps it's own thing, or
closer to witchcraft than sorcery.

Hmm. Bespelled? Enchanted? Not sure either. :) Mark? :)
