Triple-Faced Witch (Apath)
|Unofficial rules compendium|
A triple-faced witch lives three lives at once, as maiden, mother, and crone.
This is a witch archetype.
Hit Die: d6.
This archetype has all normal class features, except as noted.
At fourth level a triple-faced witch learns threefold aspect (as a 2nd level witch spell). This works as a patron spell, but is in addition to her normal list of patron spells, and it is two spell levels lower than normal for the triple-faced witch. Note that, as the spell gives an enhancement bonus, it is likely to be superseded by magic items at higher levels. This replaces the fourth level hex.
At 10th level, a triple-faced witch can shift her appearance at will between her natural age and three idealized age categories: young adult (youth/maiden), adulthood (father/mother), or elderly (elder/crone). In each case, her appearance is her own at the appropriate age, rather than that of a new individual. She can change into an idealized age category even if it matches her actual age category.
She may change between these three aspects or her actual age as a standard action. At her actual age, she gains no benefits or penalties. As the young adult, she gains a +2 bonus to Dexterity and Constitution, but suffers a -2 penalty to Wisdom. In the adult aspect, she gains a +2 bonus to Wisdom and Intelligence, but takes a -2 penalty to Dexterity. As the elderly aspect, she gains a +4 bonus to Wisdom and Intelligence, but takes a -2 penalty to Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution. While using this ability, any attribute changes from aging are negated. It otherwise stacks with anything, including the threefold aspect spell. If both the spell and the triple-faced ability are running simultaneously, they must both be set to the same age and can both change with one standard action.
Triple-faced does not alter clothing or equipment except as to fit the new body shape, and does not heal any deformity or injury unrelated to age.
This replaces the hex gained at 10th level. This delays her first major hex, but she can still take the Extra Hex feat to gain a major hex from level 10 onwards.
At 18th level, the triple-faced witch does not suffer any age penalties, including from the triple-faced ability and the threefold aspect spell. She still gains aging bonuses normally. This replaces the hex gained at 10th level. This delays her first grand hex, but she can still take the Extra Hex feat to gain a grand hex from level 18 onwards.
