Blessing of the Harrow (Su)

Once per day, a harrower may spend 10 minutes to perform a harrowing for himself and all allies within 20 feet to gain an insight bonus that lasts 24 hours based upon the suit with the most cards showing after the reading. In the case of a tie, the harrower chooses one suit.

Strength: +1 on attack rolls; Dexterity: +1 to AC; Constitution: +1 on all skill checks; Intelligence: +1 on all skill checks; Wisdom: +1 on all saving throws; Charisma: +1 on all caster level and concentration checks.

Harrow Casting (Su)

As he casts a spell, the harrower can draw three cards from his Harrow deck. This adds both a somatic component (if the spell does not already have one) and a focus component (the Harrow deck) to the spell, but does not increase the spell's casting time. Each card the harrower draws of the Intelligence or Strength suits grants the benefit of the tower of intelligence or tower of strength abilities, respectively. Each card the harrower draws that exactly matches his alignment counts as two cards of that suit. Cards drawn from the other four suits provide no benefits. A spell cannot be affected by both Harrow casting and a metamagic feat.

Fortune Teller

When casting a divination spell, the harrower can use his harrow deck as a focus in place of the spell's material component, as long as the cost of the material component is no more than 1,000 gp. If he chooses to perform the spell using the focus and the spell's normal material component, he casts the spell at +1 caster level.


The harrower gains a +1 bonus on all Will saves made to resist enchantment effects. Once per day, he may draw a card from his harrow deck and apply a +2 bonus on any d20 roll modified by the card's suit he makes in the same day.

Tower of Intelligence (Su)

For each card the harrower draws from the suit of Intelligence as part of using his harrow casting ability, he gains a +1 bonus on caster level checks made to penetrate Spell Resistance.

Tower of Strength (Su)

For each card the harrower draws from the suit of Strength as part of using his harrow casting ability to augment a spell that deals damage to hit points, the spell deals 1 additional point of damage per die.
