Like a typical sorcerer, a strega draws power from her heritage, developing an affinity for magic with no need to study as a wizard does. Unlike most sorcerers, the heritage in question is blended with the powers of witchcraft. The strega may actually be descended from a witch that bred with their patron, or her power may be the result of a coven’s ritual to create a child with strong arcane power. The strega still selects a bloodline (often one associated with outsiders, though this not always the case), but has access to some witch hexes as well.

The Strega is an archetype of the sorcerer class.


A strega knows two cantrips at 1st level, which must be detect magic, and read magic. She gains one additional cantrip known at 4th level, and again at 8th level. These cantrips may be drawn from either the sorcerer/wizard spell list, or the witch spell list.


At 1st level a strega learns a single hex from the list of hexes available to the witch class. However, the strega cannot use this hex without sacrificing a spell slot. Any spell slot of 1st-9th level may be sacrificed, and the hex otherwise functions normally. The strega gains an additional hex (which also requires the sacrifice of a spell slot to use) at 4th, 8th, 12th, and 16th level.
