Hag Coven. When hags must work together, they form covens, in spite of their selfish natures. A coven is made up of hags of any type, all of whom are equals within the group. However, each of the hags continues to desire more personal power.

A coven consists of three hags so that any arguments between two hags can be settled by the third. If more than three hags ever come together, as might happen if two covens come into conflict, the result is usually chaos.

While all three members of a hag coven are within 5 meters of one another, they share 20 mana among themselves and can each cast the following spells:

1 mana: bane, dampen spell, detect magic, fear, lightning bolt, locate, sicken, sleep

2 mana: bestow curse, terrifying visage, polymorph, stasis, commune with nature

3 mana: contact other plane, ancient curse

For casting these spells, each hag is a 12th-level spellcaster that uses Wisdom as her spellcasting ability. The spell save Difficulty is 14 + the hag’s Wisdom, and the spell attack bonus is 5 + the hag’s Wisdom.

Hags bend their magic for a directed purpose, focusing on a theme. Choose the Blood, Death, Deceit, Divination, Fate, Fear, Life, Madness, Plants, Poison, or Shadow theme. The coven knows most of the spells from that theme in addition to the spells listed above.

Hag Eye (Coven only). A hag coven can craft a magic item called a hag eye, which is made from a real eye coated in varnish and often fitted to a pendant or other wearable item. The hag eye is usually entrusted to a minion for safekeeping and transport. A hag in the coven can use an action to see what the hag eye sees if the hag eye is on the same plane of existence. A hag eye has 10 Defense, 1 health, and darkvision with a radius of 10 meters. If it is destroyed, each coven member takes 3d10 psychic damage and is blinded for 24 hours.

A hag coven can have only one hag eye at a time, and creating a new one requires all three members of the coven to perform a ritual. The ritual takes 1 hour, and the hags can’t perform it while blinded. During the ritual, if the hags use any action other than performing the ritual, they must start over.

Magic Resistance. The night hag has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Night Hag Items. The night hag carries two very rare magic items that she must craft for herself. If either object is lost, the night hag will go to great lengths to retrieve it, as creating a new tool takes time and effort.

Heartstone. This lustrous black gem allows the night hag to become ethereal while it is in her possession. The touch of a heartstone also cures any disease. Crafting a heartstone takes 30 days.

Soul Bag. When an evil humanoid dies as a result of the night hag’s Nightmare Haunting, the night hag catches the soul in this black sack made of stitched flesh. A soul bag can hold only one evil soul at a time, and only the night hag who crafted the bag can catch a soul with it. Crafting a soul bag takes 7 days and a humanoid sacrifice (whose flesh is used to make the bag).

Spellcasting. The night hag uses Occult (Wis) to cast spells (spell save Difficulty 14, +5 to hit with spell attacks). It has 9 mana, a mana limit of 2, regains all expended mana when it finishes a long rest, and regains half its total mana when it finishes a short rest. It knows the following spells:

At will: detect magic

Cantrips (at will, 6th-level spellcaster): ghostly spirit, soul sap, thaumaturgy

1 mana: absorb spirit, ancestral blessing, bind soul, consult the spirits, enfeeble, find familiar, sleep, spirit drain

2 mana: faithful hound, possess, reincarnate, speak with spirits, spectral form, spirit guardians, spiritual impressions, vengeful spirit, walking hut, wrath of nature

2/day: plane shift (self only)

Actions (2)

Claws (Hag form only). Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit. Hit: 13 (2d8 + 4) slashing damage.

Change Shape (1/turn). The night hag can polymorph into a Small or Medium female humanoid, or back into her true form. Her statistics are the same in each form. Any equipment she is wearing or carrying isn’t transformed. She reverts to her true form if she dies.

Ethereal Jaunt. The night hag can shift from the Material Plane to the Ethereal Plane, or vice versa. To do so, the night hag must have a heartstone in her possession.

Nightmare Haunting (1/long rest). While on the Ethereal Plane, the night hag magically touches a sleeping humanoid on the Material Plane. A protection from evil and good spell cast on the target prevents this contact, as does a hallow spell. As long as the contact persists, the target has dreadful visions. If these visions last for at least 1 hour, the target gains no benefit from its rest, and its maximum health is reduced by 5 (1d10). If this effect reduces the target’s maximum health to 0, the target dies, and if the target was evil, its soul is trapped in the night hag’s soul bag. The reduction to the target’s maximum health lasts until removed by the restoration spell augmented to greater restoration or similar magic.

Spells

1 hour

As an action, you summon a ghostly spirit (11 Defense; 7 Health) in a space you can see within 5 meters. The spirit can appear translucent or emit a faint glow, shedding dim light in its space.

When you cast this spell, or as an action on a later turn, you can cause a spirit to shriek at a creature of your choice within 5 meters of it. The creature must make a Will saving throw. If the creature is immune to being frightened, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it takes 1d4 psychic damage and can’t willingly move closer to the space where the spirit was until the end of its next turn.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

You can summon up to three spirits. If a spirit shrieks, the spirit disappears.

At higher levels

This spell’s damage increases by 1d4 when you reach 9th level (2d4) and 17th level (3d4).

As an action, you siphon life force from a creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters to heal your wounds. The creature must make a Fortitude saving throw. If the creature is a construct or an undead, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it takes 1d6 necrotic damage.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

You gain temporary health equal to half the amount of necrotic damage dealt.

At higher levels

This spell’s damage increases by 1d6 when you reach 9th level (2d6) and 17th level (3d6).

1 minute

As an action, you manifest a minor wonder, a sign of supernatural power, within 5 meters. You create one of the following magical effects.

  • Your voice booms up to three times as loud as normal.
  • You cause flames to flicker, brighten, dim, or change color.
  • You cause harmless tremors in the ground.
  • You create an instantaneous sound, such as a rumble of thunder, the cry of a raven, or ominous whispers.
  • You instantly light or snuff out a candle, a torch, or a small campfire.
  • You instantaneously cause an unlocked door or window to fly open or slam shut.
  • You alter the appearance of your eyes.

If you cast this spell multiple times, you can have up to three of its effects active at a time, and you can dismiss such an effect on your turn (no action required).

As a reaction, which you use when a creature within 5 meters of you dies, you can absorb its spirit. You gain 1d10 + your spellcasting ability temporary health.

Augment

You gain 1d10 additional temporary health for each additional mana expended.

As a reaction, which you use when you or another creature that isn’t a construct or an undead that you can touch or see within 10 meters makes an attack roll, an ability check, or a saving throw, your ancestral spirits guide the creature. The creature makes the roll with advantage. You can do so after the roll but before any effects of the roll occur.

If the roll already has advantage or disadvantage, you cannot apply another instance of advantage or disadvantage and you must use this before the roll to cancel out any advantage or disadvantage.

Augment

You can your ancestral blessing to one additional creature for each additional mana expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

M (a piece of jewelry worth 200 sp); 1 hour/mana

As an action, you touch the piece of jewelry that serves as the material component for this spell to a creature that has died within the last minute. If the creature’s soul is willing and able to return, it becomes bound to the piece of jewelry for the duration.

While the soul is bound in this way, the creature bound to the jewelry and the creature wearing it can telepathically communicate with one another. The spell ends early if the jewelry is destroyed or if the bound creature is returned to life.

A bound soul can attempt to break free from the jewelry if it experiences any emotional, psychological, or physical pain. The creature must make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, the soul cannot attempt to break free for another 7 days

On a success, the soul is free

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • You can expend 1 additional mana so the duration changes to 10 days.

  • You can expend 2 additional mana so the duration changes to 1 year.

  • You can expend 3 additional mana and so the duration becomes permanent.

  • You can expend 1 additional mana so the creature can have died within the last hour.

  • You can expend 2 additional mana so the creature can have died within the last 24 hours.

  • You can expend 3 additional mana so the creature can have died within the last week.

  • You can expend 4 additional mana so the creature can have died within the last month.

(ritual); M (physical item serving as a connection to the spirits worth at least 25 sp)

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you receive an omen from the spirits about the results of a specific course of action that you plan to take within the next 30 minutes. The GM chooses from the following possible omens:

  • Weal, for good results
  • Woe, for bad results
  • Weal and woe, for both good and bad results
  • Nothing, for results that aren’t especially good or bad

The spell doesn’t take into account any possible circumstances that might change the outcome, such as the casting of additional spells or the loss or gain of a companion.

If you cast the spell two or more times before completing your next long rest, there is a cumulative 25% chance for each casting after the first that you get a random reading. The GM makes this roll in secret.

(ritual); concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As an action, you sense the presence of magic within 5 meters of you. If you sense magic in this way, you can use an action to see a faint aura around any visible creature or object in the area that bears magic, and you learn its theme, if any.

The spell can penetrate most barriers, but it is blocked by 30 centimeters of stone, 2 centimeters of common metal, a thin sheet of lead, or 1 meter of wood or dirt.

If you touch a creature or object for 5 minutes, you can determine the magic affecting it. If it is a magic item or some other magic-imbued object, you learn its properties and how to use them, whether it requires attunement to use, and how many charges it has, if any. You learn whether any spells are affecting the item and what they are. If the item was created by a spell, you learn which spell created it. If it is a creature, you learn what spells, if any, are currently affecting it.

concentration, 1 minute/mana

As an action, a black beam of enervating energy springs from your finger toward a creature within 10 meters. The creature must make a Fortitude saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 3d10 necrotic damage and deals only half damage with weapon attacks for the duration.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

The creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 4d10 for each additional mana expended.

(ritual); M (charcoal, incense, and herbs worth 10 sp that must be consumed by fire, consumed)

As you spend 10 minutes to cast this spell, you gain the service of a familiar, a piece of you that takes an animal form you choose: almiraj, awakened shrub, badger, bat, cat, chwinga, crab, crawling claw, fish (quipper), flying monkey, flying snake, frog, hawk, homunculus, lizard, octopus, owl, poisonous snake, rat, raven, scorpion, sea horse, spider, toad, tressym, weasel, or any Tiny or smaller animal of challenge rating 0.

Appearing in an unoccupied space within 5 meters, the familiar has the statistics of the chosen form, though its health is increased by 5. Your familiar can understand your speech and you gain the ability to decipher its noises and motions.

Your familiar acts independently of you, but it always obeys your commands. In combat, it rolls its own initiative and acts on its own turn. If you don’t issue any commands to your familiar, it defends itself from hostile creatures but otherwise takes no actions. A familiar can’t attack, but it can take other actions as normal.

While your familiar is within 20 meters of you:

  • Your familiar has resistance to all damage. Each time it takes damage, you take the same amount of damage.
  • When you cast a spell with a range of touch, your familiar can deliver the spell as if it had cast the spell. Your familiar must use its reaction to deliver the spell when you cast it. If the spell requires an attack roll, you use your attack modifier for the roll.

As an action, you can temporarily dismiss your familiar if it is within 5 meters of you. It disappears into a pocket dimension where it awaits your summons. As an action while it is temporarily dismissed, you can cause it to reappear in any unoccupied space within 5 meters of you that you can see.

You can’t have more than one familiar at a time. If you cast this spell while you already have a familiar, you instead cause it to adopt a new form from the above list.

When the familiar drops to 0 health, it disappears, leaving behind no physical form. It reappears after you cast this spell again. If it is slain by a creature, you gain advantage on your next attack roll against the killer.

Augment

You can increase your familiar’s health by 15 for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As an action, you cause a creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters to fall asleep. The creature must make a Will saving throw. If the creature is a construct or an undead, can’t hear you, or is immune to being charmed, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, you lull it into a magical slumber, causing it to fall unconscious for the duration.

This spell ends for a creature if it takes damage or someone uses an action to shake or slap it awake. Additionally, the creature can repeat the saving throw each minute or if it hears an extraordinarily loud noise such as the thunderwave spell, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Augment

You can target one additional creature for each additional mana expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

As an action, you drain the spiritual energy from a creature that you can touch or see within 10 meters. The creature must make a Will saving throw. If the creature doesn’t have mana, psi, or stamina dice, the spell has no effect on it.

On a failure, it takes 2d6 necrotic damage, loses 1 mana, 2 psi, or 2 stamina dice (its choice), and is slowed 1 until the end of its next turn.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage and is slowed 2 until the end of its next turn.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

If the creature has slots that are not converted to mana, the GM removes an equivalent level slot. If the creature has innate spellcasting with a set amount each day, use the highest level slot from that section to determine if the slot is lost.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 5d6 and the target loses 1 additional mana or 2 additional stamina dice for each additional mana expended.

3 hours/mana

As two actions, you conjure a phantom watchdog in an unoccupied space that you can see within 5 meters. The hound occupies that space and is invisible to all creatures except you and can’t be harmed.

When a Small or larger creature comes within 5 meters of it without first speaking the password that you specify when you cast this spell, the hound starts barking loudly. The hound sees invisible creatures and can see into the Ethereal Plane. It ignores illusions.

When you cast this spell, you can designate any number of creatures you can see to be unaffected by it. A creature that moves within 1 meter of the spell’s area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there must make a Reflex saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 2d12 piercing damage.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

The hound vanishes when it has dealt a total of 50 damage.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d10 and the maximum damage increased by 25 for each additional mana expended.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As two actions, you take possession of a willing humanoid that you can touch or see within 10 meters (creatures warded by a protection from evil and good or magic circle spell can’t be possessed).

Your soul moves into the target’s body. Once you possess a creature’s body, your body falls into a catatonic state as your soul leaves it and enters the body of the creature which you control. Your game statistics are replaced by the statistics of the creature, though you retain your personality and your Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma. You retain the benefit of your own class features. If the target has any class levels, you can’t use any of its class features.

Meanwhile, the possessed creature’s soul can perceive using its own senses, but it can’t move or use any actions other than to make a Will saving throw as an action on its turn, ending the possession on a success.

While possessing a body, you can use an action to return from the host body to your body if it is within 20 meters of you. If the host body dies while you’re in it, the creature dies, and you must make a Will saving throw against your spell save Difficulty.

On a success, you return to your body if it is within 20 meters of you. Otherwise, you die.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • Unwilling. You can expend 1 additional mana to target an unwilling target. The duration changes to 1 minute/mana and the target must succeed on a Will saving throw or you possess it for the duration. If you or creatures that are friendly to you are fighting it, it has advantage on the saving throw.

    Each time the target takes damage, it makes a new Will saving throw against the spell. If the saving throw succeeds, the spell ends.

  • Creature. You can expend 1 additional mana to target any creature.

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you touch a dead humanoid or a piece of a dead humanoid. Provided that the creature has been dead no longer than 10 days, the spell forms a new adult body for it and then calls the soul to enter that body. If the target’s soul isn’t free or willing to do so, the spell fails.

The magic fashions a new body for the creature to inhabit, which likely causes the creature’s species to change. The GM rolls a d100 and consults the following table to determine what form the creature takes when restored to life, or the GM chooses a form.

The reincarnated creature recalls its former life and experiences. It retains the aptitudes it had in its original form, except it exchanges its original species for the new one and changes its traits accordingly.

5 minutes/mana

As two actions, you can speak to the spirit of a dead creature allowing it to answer the questions you pose. Choose a corpse you can see within 5 meters or an area where the creature died. The spell fails if the spirit’s body was made undead or if the spirit was the target of this spell within the last 10 days.

Until the spell ends, you can ask the spirit up to five questions. The spirit knows only what it knew in life, including the languages it knew. Answers are usually brief, cryptic, or repetitive, and the spirit is under no compulsion to offer a truthful answer if you are hostile to it or it recognizes you as an enemy. This spell doesn’t return the creature’s soul to its body, only its animating spirit. Thus, the spirit can’t learn new information, doesn’t comprehend anything that has happened since it died, and can’t speculate about future events.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As two actions, you, along with everything you’re wearing and carrying, become spectral for the duration. The spell ends if you drop to 0 health.

While in this form, the following rules apply:

  • your speed is halved
  • you can enter and occupy the space of another creature
  • you have resistance to nonmagical damage
  • you have advantage on Reflex and Fortitude saving throws
  • you can move through a space as narrow as 2 centimeters wide without squeezing, though treat liquids as though they were solid surfaces.
  • you can’t talk, manipulate objects, attack, use maneuvers, or cast spells. Any objects you were carrying or holding can’t be dropped, used, or otherwise interacted with.
Augment

You can expend 1 additional mana to target one additional creature for each additional mana expended. The creatures must be within 5 meters of each other when you target them.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, you call forth spirits to protect you. They flit around you in an aura shaped as a sphere. The guardian spirits provide supernatural protection. As a reaction, which you use when a creature that you can touch or see within 5 meters of you takes damage, you can reduce that damage by double the mana expended to cast this spell and the attacker takes psychic damage equal to double the mana expended to cast this spell. An enemy creature that enters the spell’s area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there must make a Will saving throw.

On a failure, it takes 1d8 psychic damage, moves at half speed, and has disadvantage on attack rolls while in the area.

On a critical failure, it takes twice as much damage.

On a success, it takes half as much damage.

On a critical success, it takes no damage.

Augment

You can increase the damage by 1d8 for every two additional mana expended.

concentration, 1 hour/mana

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, you conjure ghostly historical impressions of a given location that only you can see within 10 meters or object you touch.

Location. Rooms, streets, tunnels, and other discrete locations accumulate impressions left by powerful emotions experienced in a given area. These impressions offer you a ghostly recreation of the location’s past.

The types of events most likely to leave impressions are those that elicited strong emotions: battles and betrayals, marriages and murders, births and great pain, or any other event where one emotion dominates. Everyday occurrences leave no residue for a caster to detect.

The ghostly impressions of the event are ethereal, and cannot be interacted with. You do not gain special knowledge of those involved in the vision, though you might be able to read large banners or other writing if they are in your language.

Beginning with the most recent significant event at a location and working backward in time, you can conjure one distinct event for every 10 minutes you maintain concentration, if any such events exist to be conjured.

Object. You conjure ghostly echoes which let you learn about the past owners of an object. You learn the owner’s species, gender, age, and how the owner gained and lost the object. Beginning with the most recent owner of an object and working backward in time, you can conjure one distinct owner for every 10 minutes you maintain concentration, if any such owner exists to be conjured.

Track. You can track creatures with an Intelligence of −4 or greater by following the ghostly trails of spiritual energy they leave behind. You have advantage on Streetwise and Wilderness checks made to track such creatures.

The impressions can extend 100 years into the past.

Augment
You can augment this spell with the following options, expending mana for each option.
  • The impressions can be 500 years further in the past for each additional mana expended.

  • Shared Impressions. You can expend 1 additional mana to share this impression with one other creature that you touch. An unwilling target may make a Will saving throw to avoid being affected.

3 hours/mana

As a reaction, which you use when you are reduced to 0 health, you can choose to let your soul emerge from your body to fight on. Your body remains unconscious and subject to death saving throws as normal. At the beginning of your next turn, you manifest a spirit form in your space that picks up your weapons and continues fighting on, acting on your turn and every one of your subsequent turns under your control. Your spirit form has your physical attributes and Defense, as well as your weapons and ammunition, and can move through other creatures and objects as if they were difficult terrain. This form is immune to cold, necrotic, and nonmagical weapon damage. Your spirit form has access to all of your abilities.

If your spirit form takes any damage or you are no longer unconscious, your spirit form vanishes. If your spirit form vanishes, it drops your weapons in its space.

Augment

You can expend 1 additional mana to stabilize your dying body.

(ritual); 3 hours/mana

As you spend 1 minute to cast this spell, a 2-meter radius hut steps from the spirit world into existence around and above you and remains for the duration. The hut is an object with 12 Defense, 2 Soak, and 250 Health. It has legs which allow it to walk at a speed of 3 meters. If it drops to 0 health, the spell ends.

Nine creatures of Medium size or smaller, or a mix of Medium size or smaller and Large creatures which are equivalent to 4 Medium creatures, can fit inside the hut with you. Until the spell ends, you can command the interior to become dimly lit or dark.

concentration, 5 minutes/mana

As two actions, you call out to the spirits of nature to rouse them against your enemies. Choose a point you can see within 20 meters. The spirits cause trees, rocks, and grasses in a sphere that is twice as big as normal centered on that point to become animated until the spell ends.

Grasses and Undergrowth. Any area of ground in the sphere that is covered by grass or undergrowth is difficult terrain for your enemies.

Trees. At the start of each of your turns, each of your enemies within 2 meters of any tree in the sphere must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or take 2d8 slashing damage from whipping branches.

Roots and Vines. At the start of each of your turns, a creature of your choice that is on the ground in the sphere must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or become restrained until the spell ends. A restrained creature can use an action to make a Brawn check against your spell save Difficulty, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Rocks. As an action, you can cause a loose rock in the sphere to launch at a creature you can see in the sphere. Make a ranged spell attack against the target.

On a hit, the target takes 2d10 bludgeoning damage, and it must succeed on a Reflex saving throw or fall prone.

On a miss by 4 or less, the target takes half as much damage.

Augment

You can increase the damage from rocks by 2d8 for each additional mana expended and the damage from trees by 1d8 and the damage for every two additional mana expended.

As two actions, you are transported to a different plane of existence. You can specify a target destination in general terms, such as the City of Brass on the Elemental Plane of Fire or the palace of Dispater on the second level of the Nine Hells, and you appear in or near that destination. If you are trying to reach the City of Brass, for example, you might arrive in its Street of Steel, before its Gate of Ashes, or looking at the city from across the Sea of Fire, at the GM’s discretion.

Alternatively, if you know the sigil sequence of a teleportation circle on another plane of existence, this spell can take you to that circle. If the teleportation circle is too small to hold all the creatures you transported, they appear in the closest unoccupied spaces next to the circle.

Augment

You can transport five additional willing creatures for each additional mana expended. The creatures must link hands with you in a circle.
