Granny Weatherwax is the most powerful witch of the ramtops, and the unofficial leader of the witches guild.

Also known as

Esmerelda Weatherwax is known by several names:

  • Esmerelda Weatherwax - her full name
  • Esme - short for Esmerelda
  • Granny - there's aren't any other Grannys as famous
  • Aaoograha hoa - (Trollish) 'She Who Must Be Avoided'
  • K'ez'rek d'b'duz - (Dwarfish) 'Go Around the Other Side of the Mountain'


Granny dresses plainly in sensible black clothing, and is never seen without the regulation pointed witches hat and cloak. Her looks could be called handsome, but only in a following wind and by the right light, by a good-natured liar. She is particularly renowned for her penetrating blue eyes, with which she can inflict a terrible stare.

Much to her eternal disappointment, Granny has never been able to affect the usual decay associated with the traditional old crone; she has a rosy complexion, all her teeth, and no warts.


Granny is always found inside her cottage in Bad Ass. She moves about within the cottage, and sometimes fades (out the other side).

When she is fading a lot of adventuring.perception is necessary to see her.

One time more than 350 bonus was needed with a 371 bonus allowing to see her.

Another time a 387 bonus didn't work and a 411 bonus was enough to see her.

Both times she was seen with watch medium. This might indicate that it is a second requirement, or perhaps something else.   research If this has been marked on a page, it's because there was something that probably isn't known, that the person who edited the page thinks could be found out. Perhaps you could figure this thing out, and be famous evermore.
