Class Abilities:

• Cantrips -Witches can prepare a number of cantrips, or 0-level spells, each day, as noted on Table: Witch under “Spells per Day.” These spells are cast like any other spell, but they are not expended when cast and may be used again. Cantrips prepared using other spell slots, due to metamagic feats for example, are expended normally

• Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Witches are proficient with all simple weapons. They are not proficient with any type of armor or shield. Armor interferes with a witch’s gestures, which can cause her spells with somatic components to fail (see Arcane Spells and Armor on page 83 of the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook).

• Hex - Witches learn a number of magic tricks, called hexes, that grant them powers or weaken foes.

• Patron - At 1st level, when a witch gains her familiar, she must also select a patron. This patron is a vague and mysterious force, granting the witch power for reasons that she might not entirely understand. While these forces need not be named, they typically hold influence over one of the following forces.

Patron spells:Stars
Stars: 2nd—faerie fire, 4th—dust of twilight, 6th—guiding star, 8th—wandering star motes, 10th—dream, 12th—cloak of dreams 14th—circle of clarity, 16th—euphoric tranquility, 18th—astral projection.

•Familiar - At 1st level, a witch forms a close bond with a familiar, a creature that teaches her magic and helps to guide her along her path. Familiars also aid a witch by granting her skill bonuses, additional spells, and help with some types of magic. This functions like the wizard’s arcane bond class feature, except as noted in the Witch’s Familiar section.

A witch must commune with her familiar each day to prepare her spells. Familiars store all of the spells that a witch knows, and a witch cannot prepare a spell that is not stored by her familiar. A witch’s familiar begins play storing all of the 0-level witch spells plus three 1stlevel spells of the witch’s choice. The witch also selects a number of additional 1st-level spells equal to her Intelligence modifier to store in her familiar. At each new witch level, she adds two new spells of any spell level or levels that she can cast (based on her new witch level) to her familiar. A witch can also add additional spells to her familiar through a special ritual.

Mythic Abilities:

Hard to Kill (Ex): Whenever you're below 0 hit points, you automatically stabilize without needing to attempt a Constitution check. If you have an ability that allows you to act while below 0 hit points, you still lose hit points for taking actions, as specified by that ability. Bleed damage still causes you to lose hit points when below 0 hit points. In addition, you don't die until your total number of negative hit points is equal to or greater than double your Constitution score.

Mythic Power (5/day)(Su): Mythic characters can draw upon a wellspring of power to accomplish amazing deeds and cheat fate. This power is used by a number of different abilities. Each day, you can expend an amount of mythic power equal to 3 plus double your mythic tier (5/day at 1st tier). This amount is your maximum amount of mythic power. If an ability allows you to regain uses of your mythic power, you can never have more than this amount.

Surge (Su): You can call upon your mythic power to overcome difficult challenges. You can expend one use of mythic power to increase any d20 roll you just made by rolling 1d6 and adding it to the result. Using this ability is an immediate action taken after the result of the original roll is revealed. This can change the outcome of the roll.

Mythic Spell Lore:You have learned how to unlock the power of your spells, combining them with your mythic power.

Prerequisite(s): Ability to cast spells.

Benefit: You can learn a number of mythic spells equal to your tier and can expend mythic power when casting them to enhance the results. To select a mythic spell, you must be able to cast the non-mythic version or have it on your list of spells known. Every time you gain a new tier, you can select an additional mythic spell.

Special: You can select this feat multiple times. Each time you select this feat, you must select different spells.

Wild Arcana:As a swift action, you can expend one use of mythic power to cast any one arcane spell without expending a prepared spell or spell slot. The spell must be on one of your arcane class spell lists and must be of a level that you can cast with that arcane spellcasting class.

You don't need to have the spell prepared, nor does it need to be on your list of spells known. When casting a spell in this way, you treat your caster level as 2 levels higher for the purpose of any effect dependent on level. You can apply any metamagic feats you know to this spell, but its total adjusted level can't be greater than that of the highest-level arcane spell you can cast from that spellcasting class.

Mythic Hex:Your hexes are more effective against non-mythic targets. When you use a hex that requires a saving throw against a non-mythic target, that target is automatically affected for 1 round (which doesn't count toward the hex's duration) and can't attempt a saving throw to resist the hex. On your turn the next round, the creature attempts its saving throw as normal.

If it succeeds at this saving throw, it breaks free of the hex; otherwise, it's affected as normal. You must have the hex class feature to select this ability. You can select this ability twice. If you select it a second time, it also affects your major hexes.


Scholar of the Great Beyond

Your great interests as a child did not lie with current events or the mundane— you have always felt out of place, as if you were born in the wrong era. You take to philosophical discussions of the Great Beyond and of historical events with ease.
Benefit: You gain a +1 trait bonus on Knowledge (history) and Knowledge (planes) checks, and one of these skills (your choice) is always a class skill for you.

Two-World Magic

You have bridged the gap between the natural magic of the Mwangi peoples and the refined magic of the Chelish colonists.
Benefit: Select one 0-level spell from a class spell list other than your own. This spell is a 0-level spell on your class spell list (or a 1st-level spell if your class doesn't have 0-level spells). For example, if you are a druid, you could select mage hand and thereafter prepare it as a 0-level druid spell; if you are a sorcerer, you could select know direction as a 0-level sorcerer spell known.



Kalaya's parents were active members of the Hand of Jorin, her father a skilled warrior, her mother an adept escape artist, both of whom found themselves continuously on the front lines of the guerillar war against the Jarlmoot.

Time and time again their expertly planned raids brough freed prisoners and reappropriated wealth from their dwarven oppressors, until the day when one of their own, angry over her mother's refusal to become involved in an illicit tryst, betrayed the group's plans.

At the age of thirteen, Kalaya witnessed her father's death at the hands of a dwarven axemaster, her mother taken down while attempting to escape, the young girl fled for thhe wild forests.

Lost and terrified, hiding desperately with her entire world in shambles, the young girl would have died of thirst, yet as she lay weakly in a rare clearing, a great horned owl alighted on her chest, staring into her eyes with an intensity that seemed to swallow up her soul.

As she met its gaze, the world seemed to collapse in on itself drawing her down until she stood alone and naked in an endless void. Yet she was not alone. With her stood a being of great beauty, grace and elegance with a predator's fireceness, she knew at once to be the true form of the raptor astride her physical body so far away.Delicately, yet powerfully the creature reached out to her mind. Wordlessly they spoke for what felt like days, Kalaya learning of the old powers, far beyond the likes of Baal, who had seen enough of the domination of the world and sought to awaken a lost age of power and awareness.

She learned of the bond that would allow her to access greater knowledge through her interaction with Whisperwing the name of her companion in human words.

Abruptly she was once again in her own body, her mind and body infused with purpose and a growing strength. And more...knowledge, a wealth of knowledge that would ensure that she would never be a victim again. Never see another like her see everything they loverd torn from them.

She learned to survive in the wilds, to call upon the power and knowledge from beyond the stars, to work her way into the fringes of society, hiding her magic, seeming little more than a medicine woman.

Yet she knew that one day, she would stand over the corpes of the warrior that had taken her parents, and see the look in his eyes as he drew his last breath at the hands of a simple human girl.


Kalaya is a beautiful woman, if wildy so, possessing an untamed intensity that possesses the pull of danger, with an exotic naturalism.
