Kobold Gauntlet Witch

Kobold Gauntlet Witch Variant: Trapgrip Witch Racial Archetype

Born from necessity and invention, the trapgrip witches arose after kobolds first discovered an eldritch gauntlet.

Bonus Spells: In addition to the spells learned as the skinchanger gains levels, the shaman also learns extra bonus spells related to his or her chosen animal spirits.

If a druid domain for the chosen animal exists, that domain’s spells are added to the shaman’s spells known. Spells for other animal spirits are given here.
