Some witches prefer intellectual pursuit, although far from all witches who use a old grimoire are intellectuals. Usually a grimoire witch is a botched wizard or a follower of the old way.
Class: Patron Witch
Level: 1st, 5th, 9th, 13th.
Replaces: Empowered Familiar, Familiar Form, Advanced Empowered Familiar
Benefit: A Grimoire Witch has a spellbook like a Wizard instead of a familiar as her method of preparing spell. Her grimoire is hodgepodge and primitive which limit her spells to the Patron Witch spell list and she is unable to specialize like a wizard would. However each of her spell only ever take 1 page and all of her level 0 spell fit on a single page and adding spell to a grimoire simply cost 50 GP x spell level instead of the normal cost and an hour of research or tutelage per spell level. If you research a spell by yourself without any aid, it cost the same in material components as if you were buying a scroll of the spell. If you add spell through a scroll it is done for free. It otherwise act just like a spell book.
A Grimoire Witch receive a Wizard Bonus feat at 1st, 5th level and each 5 level thereafter.
Finally a Grimoire Witch may use her Intelligence instead of her Charisma for her Patron Witch's spellcasting and any Patron Witch's class feature (such as hexes). You count as a wizard of your patron witch level for the purpose of prerequisites although you still use Intelligence for your prerequisites.
