The pentangle - the five-pointed star - is a mystic symbol. Because it is made of a single unbroken line, it affords strong protection from spirits who cannot find a place to enter in.

It is also used as a five-pointed star symbol of the Goddess. It is often associates together with apples because if one cuts an apple open lengthwise, he can find a five-pointed star hidden within.


Sometimes in the game the pentagram is (perhaps mistakenly) called "pentacle" which is a different word and refers to amulets.
