Witch (3.5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Witches are an inherently magical subspecies of humanity, with a potential to become extremely powerful and dangerous.


As a subspecies of humanity, witches are generally neutral to most species, though even the best tend to be somewhat wary of strangers. Witches, regardless to their alignment, tend to live in hide or in disguise, fear that revealing their true nature to others would cause harm to them and their loved ones.

Physical Description[edit]

There is absolutely no physical difference between a human and a witch. However, if they desire so, witches can change their eye color into brilliant green, regardless of what their natural eye color is.


Like all other humans, witches have variable relations with other races, colored by their natural tendency to reject strangers. However, due to their magical nature, they tend to be less afraid of paranormal beings.






Usually deities of magic.


Common, Arcane, one Elemental language: Aquan (water), Auran (air), Ignan (fire), Terran (earth).
