Sometimes when you burn a witch the witch burns you. A Cinder Hag is created when a witch has been hunted down and burnt at the stake. During the burning ceremonial it is believed that some malevolent fire spirit intervenes and merges with the witch. The Cinder Hag immediately uproots her stake and seeks retribution against those who have wrong her. Cinder Hags revel in fiery deaths and the burning of the world around her.


     A Cinder Hag appears as a burnt human female with scorched ropes tied around a cindering wooden stake. The Cinder Hag is constantly burning with fire and following her trail is an easy task.

Combat


  • Burning Touch: The Cinder Hag attacks with 2 Claws and a Bite. Any successful hit will set their opponents on fire. Each round they will take 1d6 points of fire damage unless they spend a round to make dexterity check to put out the flames. Referees may have those burning to also make items saving throws to see if possessions are destroyed in the process. 
  • Immolation Blast: A Cinder Hag may spend a round to plant her cindering stake in the ground. During that time she forfeits her attacks as she increases the intensity of the flames. For each round planted she gather up 2d6 points of fire damage up to maximum of 6d6. During any of those three rounds she may release a blast of fire in a 30' radius.(round 1 2d6, round 2 4d6, round 3 6d6)
