Description

Description

Witches have the unique ability to blend into their surroundings so effectively that they are overlooked by most people. In order to do this successfully, a witch must adopt a position that others will be likely to overlook and then be able to stand perfectly still lest she be noticed. While very perceptive people will still be able to see her, others will have to look very hard to realize that she is still in plain sight.

Fading into her surroundings costs the witch 25 gp plus an additional 10 gp now and again to maintain her stance.

The witch may return to the usual field of vision simply by fading out of the foreground but it's customary to do this instead by speaking loudly and unexpectedly or, at the very least, sniffing disapprovingly.
