A sea witch’s affinities are tied to the vast oceans and the rolling waves. Her magic concerns the moon, tides, water, and winds, and she is most at peace when she is upon or near the sea.
Patron: A sea witch cannot choose a patron whose interests or theme opposes that of water (for example, earth or fire).
A sea witch replaces some of her patron spells with the following: 2nd—touch of the sea, 4th—gust of wind, 6th—water breathing, 8th—control water, 10th—cloudkill, 12th—control winds, 14th—control weather, 16th—vortex, 18th—tsunami.
So long as she near a sizable body of water (at least a lake with a diameter of 1 mile or more), a sea witch may cast know direction at will as a spell-like ability.
A sea witch can influence the attitude of water-dwelling animals and animals that live along coasts and shores, including birds, as if using wild empathy. The sea witch uses her witch level as her druid level for this ability. If the sea witch has wild empathy from another class, her witch levels stack with the other class’s levels to determine her wild empathy bonus for these kinds of creatures.
This ability replaces the witch’s 1st-level hex.
