In this handbook, you'll find 24 new class feats that highlight the witch's unique and thematic flavor. Want to turn fallen enemies in shrunken heads, deafen & blind enemies with your cackle, or gaze into your cauldron to discover secrets and find traps? Look no further than the Witch Handbook!

In addition, you'll find more patron themes and witch lessons to put the class's mid- and high-level options on par with Pathfinder Second Edition's other spellcasters.

Is this for Pf1 or Pf2? [Edit: nevermind, I see it's for Pf2 in the description. But might want to add it to the tag labels. Anyway, looks cool!]

Under Hexing Strike, it would make more sense if the critical success and success of the Strike applied the critical failure or failure effects (respectively) of a Hex onto the target, would it not? Otherwise, as currently written, striking with your hair would actually make your hexes worse or (in the case of a critical strike) non-functional due to all hexes being automatically succeeded or critically succeeded against.

Perhaps since it allows you to target AC instead of the usual save (and assumedly you're taking the INT-to-hit feat beforehand), since that's a fairly good trade-off, it should read something along the lines of:
Success: Apply the (success/failure) effect of the hex to the target along with the damage of the Strike (since by making a Strike as a subordinate action you will always roll damage when hitting anyways, so no need to say you roll the damage)
Critical Success: Apply the (failure/critical failure) effect of the hex to the target along with the doubled damage of...See more

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
