Child of Darkness
The witch’s ties with the darkness increase.
Prerequisite: Major hex class feature, shadows hex.
Benefit: While in the area affected by her shadows hex, the witch can use the Stealth skill even while being observed, as though she had the hide in plain sight ability. As long as she is within 5 feet of a shadow affected by this hex, the witch can hide herself from view in the open without anything to actually hide behind. She cannot, however, hide in her own shadow.
Hex Tree: The child of darkness hex is part of a hex tree, which means that each hex which builds off of the shadows hex increases the power of the shadows hex itself:
Two shadow hexes: creatures with darkvision cannot see through the concealment provided by the thicker shadows produced by the shadows hex.
Three shadow hexes: creatures with the see in darkness monster ability are also unable to see through the shadows affected by the shadows hex.
Four shadow hexes: the witch is treated as if having the improved evasion class feature while within the area of her shadows hex.
