While in most parts of the former Omban lands, the Corpseborn are prohibited from practicing magic or using fos, some few have a natural or trained gift in the use of fos, like a manifest. The folfi, as they are called in Sardesh, or witches more commonly by outsiders, are expert in the use of fos collectively, building webs of users whose conjoined power exceeds the sum of its parts, and control over curses. Folfi are almost always trained in secret, and the mysteries of the art are kept from non-corpseborn - even to the point of denying its existence entirely, when necessary. Unlike manifests, who tend to be solitary, the power of the folfi is in their collective action, and several of them are often found in the same community.

1st level: Whenever the use of a magic spell creates a negative effect, the folfi rolls twice on the effect table and selects whichever effect they like.
1st level: The folfi uses Wisdom instead of Intelligence for all magic checks.
1st level: Fortune: The folfi has the ability to grant fortune or misfortune to others in the immediate vicinity by making a quick hand gesture, like individuals with the corpseborn class. As a move action, he can grant all allies within 30 ft. a +1 morale bonus to attack rolls, saving throws, and skill checks for the next round, or alternately, cause all enemies within 30 ft. to suffer a -1 morale penalty to those checks. This ability may be used a number of times per day equal to the folfi’s Wisdom modifier. The bonus or penalty increases by +1/-1 every four additional levels.
1st level: Fos web: The folfi can join with one or more other corpseborn to create a web of individuals who share a single pool of fos and can perform magic much more capably. Each member of the web must consume at least one fos, while all are holding hands; establishing the web is a full-round action. The total number of individuals in a folfi's web, not including themselves, may not exceed the folfi's level. The web has a combined fos pool equal to the total amount consumed. The web ends when a) the fos pool is emptied; b) any member of the web moves more than 100 ft. + 10 ft. / level from the folfi; or c) a maximum of 1 minute per level of the folfi. Any members of the web may draw on the pool of fos throughout its duration, and any members of the web may take additional fos to contribute to the pool as long as it does not reach 0. Throughout the web's existence, any folfi in the web gain a bonus to magic checks of +1 for each additional corpseborn, and +2 for each additional folfi. Non-folfi do not receive this bonus. When a spell fails when cast by any member of the web, any negative effect applies to all members of the web equally (although saves, if any, are made individually).
1st level: The folfi is fluent in Sardesh, the argot of all corpseborn, which is not shared with outsiders, but can be used to communicate with other corpseborn orally. It is not a written language.
3rd level: Web of Fate: Whenever one or more members of a web fails a saving throw throughout its existence, the folfi may make a second saving throw (using their own check) and if that check is successful, all members of the web are considered to have saved against that effect. This can be used at most once per round, but any number of times over the duration of the web. The folfi does not have to have been initially targeted by the effect in order to activate this power.
3rd level: Improved curse: When the folfi casts a spell with the curse descriptor, all targets receive a -2 penalty to their saving throws. This penalty increases by an additional -1 for every two levels beyond 3rd (5th: -3; 7th: -4; 9th: -5; 11th: -6; 13th: -7).
5th level: Doomstare: Once per day when you or someone in a web you are part of rolls a natural 1 on a saving throw or an attack roll, you may reroll the result. If your reroll results in a successful saving throw or attack roll, the target of your attack or the creature that forced you to make a saving throw becomes shaken for 1 round per level, as long as the creature is within 30 feet and can see and hear you.
7th level: Web of fate: Once per round, whenever any participant in the folfi's web is subject to an attack that drops them to 0hp or below, the folfi may elect to distribute the total amount of damage among all participants in the web instead.
9th level: When rolling for negative effects of spellcasting after a failed magic check, the folfi may subtract their level from either of their two rolls. They may choose not to do so if desired.
11th level: Web of fate: The folfi receives a bonus to all saving throws equal to the number of participants in the web (including themselves). This can be combined with their 3rd level web of fate power to assist participants in the web who fail their saves.
13th level: Permanent effect: The folfi has learned to control the fos within them to the point that an area-based magical effect can be made permanent. They cast a spell that is eligible to be made permanent on an area (see permanency) and then concentrate for one hour to make it permanent. However, the folfi can only have one such effect in place at any one time - if they make a second effect permanent, the first one ceases.
15th level: Doomsayer: Once per web, the folfi may pronounce doom on a target within 60 ft. The target receives a penalty on all rolls equal to the number of individuals in the web, for 1 day per individual in the web. There is no save for this effect.
15th level: Targets no longer gain a saving throw against the folfi's spells that have the curse descriptor.
