Witches were a type of wizard that gained instruction from entities outside the Prime Material Plane. Almost all Witches were female, but a few male Witches existed and were usually called Warlocks.[4][note 1]

Culture[edit | edit source]

On the Prime Material Plane, witches were often inhabitants of rural villages or land that bordered wilderness.[5]

In the Feywild, witches typically received their magic from either an archfey or the goddess Sehanine Moonbow. Hamadryads were one of many races in the Feywild known to occasionally be granted magic and take on the mantle of a witch.[5]

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Unlike other types of wizards, a witch gained their powers through an extra-planar patron,[6] though some were also known to learn magic from other witches.[4]

Varieties[edit | edit source]

  • Bubudow were witches that specialized in the use of medicinal herbs.[7]
  • Mediums, also known as spirit channelers, were witches that specialized in necromancy and communicating with the dead. The entities these witches gained instruction and spells from were spirits.[3]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. Warlock in this case does not refer to the 4th edition character class, Warlock, but there are definite similarities.
