Pathfinder: Hexes of their Ancestors
I hope you enjoyed these hexes because this is the last in the series we are posting to our website. Have no fear! There’s a good reason for it: we finished writing hexes for all the patrons. Which means that you can soon download Book of Magic: Patron Hexes really soon. And the best part is you already know what you are getting. All the patron hexes we published in our website since Shadow Patron Hexes are included in this series. It has been great fun writing these and hearing your thoughts on these.
So we have one important question: What underserved class could use more class options like the witch?
Ancestor Patron Hexes
Ancestral Disapproval (Su): The witch chooses a target and causes the disapproving voices of her target’s ancestors to flood its mind. A living intelligent creature within 30 feet that the witch can see becomes shaken for a number of rounds equal to the witch’s Intelligence modifier. This duration can be extended with the cackle hex. A successful Will save reduces this duration to 1 round. This is a mind-affecting fear effect. At 8th level the target becomes frightened instead of shaken.
Ancestral Knowledge (Su): The witch spends 1 minute in quiet meditation, communing with her familiar by holding it with both hands, and she hears the words of those who came before her. After communing, she gains a circumstance bonus to any one Knowledge skill check equal to her Intelligence modifier. This bonus lasts for 1 minute or until it is used.
Major Hex: Ancestral Hex (Su): When communing with her familiar to prepare spells, the witch spends 1 additional minute to talk to all the witches that came before her and learns one of their hexes. The witch gains the use of one of the hexes or major hexes from any other witch patron. She has access to this hex until the next time the witch communes with her familiar to regain spells.
