Before you continue, this information is important. 

And the reward will be fulfilled by DriveThruRPG. 

Here we go! 

Hereva is a world of magic created by the forces of Chaos & Evolutions. There, all creatures can make simple magic deeds, but some people devote their lifes to the study of this magic forces. These persons are known as the Witches of Hereva.

Witchcraft: Magic of Hereva is a supplement for the 5th Edition of the most popular Role Playing Game in the world, that lets you create player characters with the class Witch of Hereva, on the style of the web comic Pepper & Carrot.

In Hereva, the magic is peculiar, it's different to what we expect from a regular 5e campaign, but with this supplement you'll be able to add this kind of characters to an existing campaign or a new one.

Game Masters could also use these characters as NPC's for their current ongoing campaign.

This supplement includes one new character class, the Witch of Hereva. Among the main features of this class you'll find: a familiar, recover magic energy (called Rea) by external sources, magic item creation, and new spells research. This means this you'll find new rules for magic item creation and spell research for 5e in general too. 

Witches of Hereva focus their studies in one of the six different magic schools. They group in six Witchcraft Houses (or sub-classes), each one specialized in one of these schools.

Starting from the character's 2nd level you will have to choose on of the siz Houses to specialize: 

- AH: This is the House of after-life, ghosts and souls. This house is the bridge from and to other universes.

- Aquah: The House of water, wind, clouds and the abyss. This is the most misterious of the six witchcraft houses since they spend most of their time underwater.

- Chaosah: The House of time, gravity, nuclear effects, and underground divine forces. They claim that it's the source of all magic.

- Hippiah: The House of plants, creatures, insects, and all living things. It's the most house with most adepts, it's so useful for daily tasks that regular people of Hereva use it without even thinking about it.

- Magmah: The House of cooking, alchemy and rare metals. This is another very useful school, since it's used not only to cook, but it's also a very effective type of magic in combat.

- Zombiah: The House of macabre and transformation; death, zombies, darkness, recycling, re-use, and animation. Even if not well seen by everybody, Zombiah are the most curious of houses and the one most inclined to research and creation.

When I started writing these rules my intention was to be able to create a full party made of only Witches, like in the web comic. That's why each of these sub-classes fulfill a different role in the game. And that's why it should be easy to add a Witch of Hereva in any currently running campaign.

For example, in combat, Witches of Ah are more defensive, Witches of Magmah are more aggressive, and Witches of Zombiah are more utilitarian.

Other things you will find in this document are new backgrounds, traits, feats and feats to create original characters from this world.

Stretch Goals

Update: the first goal has been reached and it's time to start revealing the stretch goals.

This adventure tells the story of a group of witches from Komona (a floating city in Hereva) that arrive to the plane material world (whatever campaign you are playing). During this adventure players travel for a while to the world of Hereva and meet characters in Komona. This could be an introduction to this type of characters in your campaign.

About Me

My name is Xacur (well, that's my last name and that's how all my friends call me), I'm a software developer by day and an indie game developer by night. I'm passionate about Role Playing Games, both the table top and videogame versions of them. I've developed a couple of small indie RPGs and have written a few supplements for the 5th edition of the most popular table top RPG in the world.

My dream is to become a full time game developer and I believe this could be my first step.
