SPECIAL ABILITIES

Blinding Light (Su)

The White Rider can radiate a 30-foot-radius aura of blinding light as a free action. Creatures within the affected area must succeed at a DC 23 Fortitude save or be permanently blinded. A creature that successfully saves cannot be affected again by the Rider’s blinding light aura for 24 hours. The save is Constitution-based.

Rider’s Robe (Su)

The White Rider wears robes that provide the same protection as a breastplate.

Rider’s Weapon (Su)

The White Rider has a +2 seeking composite longbow and a quiver that produces a never-ending supply of arrows. Once per round, she can draw a +1 brilliant energy arrow from her quiver.

ECOLOGY

Environment any
Organization solitary
Treasure +1 longsword

When the White Rider comes calling, citizens often seek to curry favor by bringing her gifts of hot tea, pastries, and fresh baked bread. She rarely accepts these offerings, and when she does it is only from those she has already judged to be loyal to Baba Yaga and worthy of the Queen of Witches rule. Those who too eagerly attempt to carry favor face added scrutiny from her.
