100 Days of Halloween: Witchfinder - A Swords & Wizardry Class

Witchfinder - A Swords & Wizardry Class
Let's try a little S&W tonight. You can have witches and not expect the occasional witch hunter.

As always, to stay objective I will be following my rules for these reviews. BUT also in this case I want to evaluate whether or not the various witch hunters are a good match for my witches.

Witchfinder - A Swords & Wizardry Class

PDF. 2 pages. One page content, one page OGL. Price: Free.

Let's hit the big points first. This PDF is small, BUT it is for Swords & Wizardry so a page for a class is good really. My own class books notwithstanding.  The second one is this PDF is free. 

For the price the click you have a new class.  Is it worth it?

The class has flavor and enough crunch to make it worthwhile. The details work for me. The XP calcs feel right, the powers they get also track.  I would switch the 17th level Holy Word power to 14th level myself. Clerics of 14th level can cast Holy Word so it tracks for WitchHunters to be able to do the same.  I would also have given them some sort of, well, witch-finding ability. But this was written likely with no specific witch class in mind. 

If you are using this with one of my S&W Witch classes then I would rule that Witchfinder can spot the magics of one of my witches and identify them. 

So yeah, I rather like this one.
