Where have I heard this before.....

calling myself on this one. :)

Hope I was one of the people helping to support this book in it's making.


While this isn't really my forte, I am never the less interested in seeing what is in here. Who knows, maybe something will make me want to play a witch.

Me too. We shall see.


Being at level 17, my Witch is going to retire soon and I don't often play the same class twice, but I like witches so much that I don't mind if this book comes a bit late for me.


Yass! I can't wait! Just hope that it's a divorce from the past "witches are bad, mkay?" of the past. It's a common complaint that pretty much every witch takes the same hexes, because there just aren't enough hexes that are not 'evil' by nature. Sure, things like 'Child Scent' and 'Cook People' need to exist because they are classics from Hansel and Gretel, those options are more for NPCs than for players, which means that... I'd say about 75% of witch content is NPC only for most campaigns.

I actually have a witch with Child scent...she uses it find lost children and young animals to help them.

I never thought of a non-evil hag goddess...but that would be awesome...though it might be hard to do.

Though the back story I guess could be a changeling that had undergone the hag ritual but kept her goodness..,


Oooo, nice choice for October.

In a Dragonlance module there is a coven of hags whose alignment is N. It's never explained why, but they are all green hags who used to live in a forest who got later turned into a wasteland. They kept a green and fertile patch of land and acted as oracles. I always thought that they shifted to neutral alignment because the destruction of their homeland made them want to become protectors of the land rather than evil witches.

I hope we get a little info on the Hag Goddesses (Gyronna, Alazhra, Mestama) and if they ever work together as a coven. Also, I wonder if there is a lawful evil hag goddess. I guess Alazhra could provide spells for lawful evil hags but of the hags we have so far only the Ash Hags are lawful evil and they don't particularly fit her interests. Of the lawful evil dieties that I am seeing the two that best fit as a hag goddess are:

Furcas, Knight of the Laurels
Areas of Concern: Duty, Flames, Herbalism
Domains: Evil, Fire, Law, Plant

and

Haborym, The Burning Hearth
Areas of Concern: Immolation, Renewal, Shackles
Domains: Evil, Fire, Law, Protection

Both of the above could work as a patron for Ash Hags and Lawful Evil Hags in general. Although I think Furcas is represented as male, not sure about Haborym, but they could also be gender fluid, which in Hell's courts, that might be useful.

If I am counting correctly we have gotten 9 Hags so far, I hope we get bloodline details for all of them!

Annis Hag
Ash Hag
Blood Hag
Dreamthief Hag
Green Hag
Mute Hag
Night Hag
Sea Hag
Storm Hag


I can think at least of one more: Pit Hag


YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!!!! WITCHES!!!

I know Pit Hags are from the Tome of Horrors and would happily see them included but do you know of an example where Paizo has used them in their products?


I know for sure there's one in the last book of Reign of Winter, even though she's completely irrelevant to the plot.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Graeae - Don't forget to include the Graeae from Bestiary 4 page 134. Graeae form Covens, and Hags, Witches, and Graeae all count as members when participating in each others Covens.

Also Changelings with Graeae Bloodline. This might be crazy but Graeae Changelings could provide the one chance for there being male Changelings. Sure they would be rare in the extreme but that could be the one loop hole.

Awesome! That at least establishes the chance they can exist. :-)


I didn't know Graeae, but they look cool.
This Pit Hag even has a picture, a pretty good one I have to say.

Witches aren't really my thing, but changelings have a place in an upcoming campaign I'm building so I'm interested in more options for them.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

So checked out the Pit Hag in Reign of Winter: The Witch Queens Revenge pg. 22 and Hopefully they will include it in a future Bestiary. There is enough changes that Paizo made to make the inclusion worth while. Also, switching the Pit Hag's alignment from CE to LE makes a lot of sense.

OMG...it's finally coming out...AFTER I HAVE TO CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION TO PAY FOR STARFINDER!!(*rends garment*)

(*deep breaths*)

Okay, I'm better now.
I will definitely be getting this one. Changlings are on of my very favorite races (very close second to androids). Cannot wait.

I have been waiting for this book for awhile now. I am so happy it is actually coming to life.

Oh boy. EXCITES


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

So checked out Furcas in Hell Unleashed and he is a he and not a likely candidate to represent lawful evil hags. So maybe Haborym (if Haborym is a she or gender fluid). And really for both Ash Hags and Pit Hags, Haborym's areas of concern are probably a closer fit.

I really hope there is a least a paragraph that talks about about there being a profane coven that includes Gyronna, Alazhra, Mestama, and possibly Haborym (so that lawful evil is included). One Goddess and 3 Demigoddess would be one scary coven!

All four are demigoddesses (Gyronna included).

And there has been mention that Gyronna & Mestama do not get along, so...(Of course, that doesn't mean they can't be grouped together as a divine coven by their worshippers, so...)

For Lawful Evil, have you read up on Mahathallah? She could be a candidate for a demigoddess worshipped by LE hags (although not exclusively).

Nice idea (divine coven) at any rate!

A "divine coven" would make sense for hag demi-gods.

Dark Archive

Calistria seems like she'd be a big hit among hags and witches. Lust, trickery and vengeance all fit the themes of hags pretty well.

Goddesses like Lamashtu, or Desna (patron for the witch iconic), or Urgathoa, or Pharasma, could also support covens.

There could be a number of different 'divine covens,' depending on the worshippers in question.

Your bring up a great point about Mahathallah! I didn't even think about looking at the Queens of Night. I was mostly looking at who had Gods/Demi-Gods that had fire as a domain because of Ash Hags and Pit Hags.

As far as Divine Covens go for witches there are lots of good possibilities. But for a Profane Coven representing Hags I think it would be great if the deities out there already representing Hags also had an evil coven of their own.

Hmmm...has anyone made a complete list of all the various official Pathfinder Hags and what Hag Traits a Changeling can inherit from her mother? I really hope we get more Alternate Racial Traits and Racial Feats for Changelings in this manual.

The Inner Sea Races hardcover does a good job of covering the different traits the various hag 'races' leave their Changeling daughters.

I have such very very high hopes for this! Definitely a must-buy!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Maybe with this & Elemental Master's Handbook, I can create an elemental witch, with focus on either earth or electricity/lightening.

Sovereign Court

I am hoping that this book will fix the height discrepancy between the changeling table and description, but that may be a false hope.
