Witches: Hex from Skylanders

It is no secret that I am a fan of the game Skylanders.  I even got caught up in all of the hype about collecting the figures and everything.  I am embarrassed (a little) to discuss the lengths I went too to get some of these figures.  There were other parents right there next to me, so I figured I was in good company.

Well just when we all thought the madness was dying down, Activision is releasing the new Skylanders Giants this weekend.  New game, new figures, and your old figures can now go to level 15 (previously only 10).  Here we go again.

I don’t think it is a stretch to  guess that my favorite character in the game is Hex, the dark elf witch of the “undead” element.  Early this year I stated her up for Dungeons & Dragons 4e and Pathfinder using their respective witch classes.
Given there is a new Skylanders game AND my new books are on the way I thought I Would stat her up once again for The Witch and Eldritch Witchery.

And yes, I have already pre-ordered my "Lightcore Hex" figure.

Here she is as for The Witch.  I picked this one since her background is about serving some "other world power".

Hex, 13th Level (Maleficia Tradition)

Strength: 10
Dexterity: 9
Constitution: 10
Intelligence: 13
Wisdom: 18
Charisma: 15

Hit Points: 30
Alignment: Neutral (maybe a little Chaotic)
AC: 6 (talisman of protection)

Occult Powers
Familiar: Floating Skull
7th level:  Evil's Touch
13th level: Devil's Tongue

Cantrips: Chill, Daze, Detect Curse, Object Reading, Open, Spark
First: Cause Fear, Ghostly Slashing, Minor Fighting Prowess, Sleep, Spirit Dart
Second: Agony, Blast Sheild, Death Armor, Phantasmal Spirit
Third: Feral Spirit, Ghost Ward, Speak with Dead
Fourth: 3 Dance Macabre, Phantom Lacerations, Spiritual Dagger
Fifth: 2 Death Curse, Dreadful Bloodletting
Sixth: 2 Death Blade, Wall of Bones
Seventh:  Wave of Mutilation

All in all, I like it.  She might be a better Necromancer to be honest, but this works well.

Want to see how she would look for my other book "Eldritch Witchery"?
Head over to the Elf Lair Games blog and see,

I fancy a good run with either Gill Grunt or Spyro, myself. There's a very large age gap between me and my cousins, but damn, is it ever entertaining! Blew their minds with the original Spyro The Dragon though.

I play it with my boys.

All our figures are now 10th level so we are ready for the new game.
