Witches of Porphyra


“Double, double, toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble;

In Porphyra’s violet light, witchcraft will be done tonight!”

Witchcraft exists outside the more commonly understood magical practices of arcane wizards and divine clerics, tied to shadowy powers that will not reveal themselves, patrons of hidden influence and obscure purpose.  On the Patchwork Planet of Porphyra, witches sometimes aid the God-proud Deists, sometimes the ancient, aboriginal Elementalists- but mostly serve their own mysterious purposes and goals, or those of their shadowy patrons!  Meet these special spellcasters in Witches of Porphyra, the newest class-book from Purple Duck Games!  Within this arcane tome you will find 12 new witch archetypes, like the breath-weaponed insufflator, combat-oriented warweaver, otherworldly-sensed sightless seer, and the amazing mentor, who teaches a cohort-like heir the ways of magic until he can become a Patron of witches himself!  Also contained in Witches of Porphyra are 3 new familiar types, 13 new Porphyran patrons such as Beauty, Filth and Desert, 4 new familiars like the hoop snake and flying monkey, 18 new hexes including Major and Grand hexes, 9 new feats, 2 new special materials dear to witches and an exciting sample character!  Packed full of material for your favorite wiccans, Witches of Porphyra from the creative crones at Purple Duck Games is the one to get right away, because at PDG, our games are what you want!

Welp, dev post time.

I chose the witch class for my first solo outing for a few reasons. My first PF character was a white-haired witch, and the witch is pretty much my favorite 9th level caster. I also found that witches don't have all that much going for them as far as official archetypes, whereas there's a dearth of archetypes for the core 9th level casters.

I'll give a brief rundown of all the new archetypes I included. A lot of them arose from either ways I wanted to hybridize the witch with another class or things I thought might make a witch feel different a bit different to play as.

First is the blooded hag. Rather than following a patron, their source of power is their bloodline, making this something of a witch/sorcerer blend. They cast spontaneously and can select bloodline powers in place of hexes. Fairly simple, aside from a few rules tweaks to make things fair.

Like the blooded hag, the brewer is a sort of witch hybrid, this time with the alchemist....See more

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
