Hex (Gaze). A creature within 60 feet that is not already under a hag’s hex makes a DC 13 Wisdom . A creature under an obligation to the hag automatically fails this saving throw. On a failed saving throw, the target is with a magical hex that lasts 30 days. The curse ends early if the target suffers harm from the hag or if the hag ends it as an action. Roll 1d4:
1. Charm Hex. The target is by the hag.
2. Fear Hex. The target is of the hag.
3. Ill Fortune Hex. The hag magically divines the target’s activities. Whenever the target attempts a long-duration task such as a craft or downtime activity, the hag can cause the activity to fail.
4. Sleep Hex. The target falls . The curse ends early if the target takes damage or if a creature uses an action to shake it awake.
Invisibility (2nd-Level; V, S, Concentration). The hag is for 1 hour. The spell ends if the hag attacks, uses Hex, or casts a spell.
The green hag uses Hex. If it’s successful, it uses its claws on a different target if one is available. If bloodied, the hag turns and tries to escape.

Legends and Lore
With an Arcana or Nature check, characters can learn the following:
DC 10 Despite their resemblance to humanoids, hags are fey creatures that can adopt a variety of forms, both male and female.
DC 15 Different types of hags exist, including green hags, sea hags, night hags, and winter hags. To increase their magical abilities, some hags gather together in covens.
DC 20 A hag may gain power over a victim by making a bargain with them, or by tricking them into various obligations or transgressions.
Green hags live in wild forests and swamps, close enough to settlements that they can prey on the lost and the lonely. Some hags’ lairs stand on crossings between the material world and their native faerie realm.
Homely Arts. Green hags only leave their lairs on ceremonial occasions, doing everything they can to make prey come to them. Many a forest path leads to a cottage with smoke puffing from the chimney and a pie cooling on the sill: a green hag’s lair. In fact, many hags enjoy and excel in domestic arts such as baking, weaving, or keeping pigs or bees. Hags delight in the macabre, and each of their hobbies has its horrific aspect: pies may contain humanoid flesh, pigs may be polymorphed trespassers, and a single snip of the hag’s shears may end the life of a creature under its power.
