If this legendary witch is friendly to the PCs, which can be accomplished by providing aid in combat or procuring magical supplies for one of their needs, and succeeding at a DC 15 Diplomacy check, they will provide potions to the PCs at a 10% discount. They produce the potions themselves and can provide potions for any of the spells on the witch spell list, though may ask for the PCs to procure a scroll of the spell if it is obscure or rare at the GM’s discretion, subtracting the cost of the scroll from the first potion produced.

This legendary witch can also use speak with dead on the PCs behalf and offers their full services as a spellcaster so long as the PCs remain in the same area or cross paths.
