SPECIAL ABILITIES

Child-Scent (Ex)

A storm hag has the scent ability, but only with respect to humanoid children and immature animals.

Thus, she could sniff out a child’s hiding place or a den of wolf pups, but not the child’s parents or the den mother.

Storm Rider (Su)

A storm hag is considered two size categories larger for the purpose of wind effects.

Storm Strike (Su)

Each time a storm hag makes a successful attack with her bite, claws, or a weapon that is predominantly made of metal, the attack deals an additional 1d6 points of electricity damage.

Whipping Winds (Su)

As a standard action, a storm hag can use gust of wind to trip her foes. This ability can only affect one target within 30 feet, and the storm hag uses her normal CMB. The gust of wind doesn’t create its normal effects. The trip attempt does not provoke an attack of opportunity, but casting the spell-like ability does as normal.

ECOLOGY

Environment any temperate
Organization solitary or coven (3 hags of any kind)
Treasure standard

When the clouds turn gray and the winds pick up into a howl, wise travelers pray that the cause is only a natural tempest and the foul weather is not connected with a storm hag. Storm hags are hateful creatures, and strangely, their hate is one of the few things that brings them pleasure.

A storm hag’s wrinkled face contains a look of gleeful distaste, and her eyes are thick with cataracts, rendering her gaze pupil-less. A storm hag’s hair is wild and unruly with static electricity popping and crackling throughout the mass. Her mouth hangs open, revealing thin pointed teeth with small arcs of electricity jumping across them. Black talons sprout from her fingertips, likewise crackling with electricity. A storm hag weighs 70 pounds and stands around 4 feet tall, though if she stood up straight she could easily reach 5 feet.

Wiry and stooped, a storm hag weighs about 70 pounds and stands a little over 4 feet tall, though if she stood up straight she could easily reach 5 feet or more. A storm hag usually wears rough furs and coarse woolen clothing that is rarely cleaned, giving her a distinctly unpleasant odor.

Storm Hag Covens

A storm hag is haughty and views her way of doing things as the only proper approach, forcing coven members to ride a fine line between flattery and submission. Coven members gain the child-scent ability as long as they are within 100 feet of the storm hag. In addition, a coven with a storm hag as a member has access to the following additional spell-like abilities: call lightning storm (DC 18), plague storm (DC 19), quench (DC 16), whirlwind (DC 21), and wind wall.
