The first video game about Mystics was released in 1975.

Spiderweb Software, Electronic Arts and Melbourne House has published most of these games

Implied:
* Magic
Mystic clergy, witches, druids, sorcerers, shamans, witchdoctors, alchemists, seers, astrologists, and any other similar.

This applies regardless if the characters express having any supernatural powers because of their hobby or not.

Also note that calling someone "witch" is occasionally done only for defaming the person rather than accurately labeling them, meaning they aren't necessarily of the mystic sort.

Wielding items or having natural abilities that are magic-like do not usually count.
