I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment How do Mushroom Vest and Boots of the Cat work together?
If you are looking for fluff justifications/descriptions, you need to ask harder for that.

comment What attack rolls does a TWF 3 Rogue/1 White-haired Witch get?
You are grappling them with a reach of 5', just not gaining the grappled condition and its penalties. Any non-computer GM isn't going to let you wander off while you maintain the grapple.

No, magical knack does not increase hex dc either.

comment Which class is the Magical Knack more useful in?
You realize you can "reskin" any class/powers in the game to be "blood based" or whatever, you don't need a class for it. Interpret the white haired witch as a white dragon blood thing. Or make it red haired witch and red dragon. The trappings are variable; the witch I'm running right now is the abused dependent of her weasel familiar that she worships as an Indian god.

comment Which class is the Magical Knack more useful in?
My point is the OP said he's looking for power but given his initial setup likely isn't using that word at the level some others might. Plus, humor. Try it :-)

comment Does the trait “Magical Knack” affect familiars?
+1 and this might impact your understanding of Magical Knack and your other questions - upped caster level does not give you more spells or anything other than an upped level-variable duration/range/effect for the spells you can cast. It is less than "+1 spellcaster level".

comment What systems contain Multiple Caster or Combined Casting rules?
Hey man. We don't really do list questions here; a good RPG.SE question should have a single best answer. If you were to put in requirements as to what "good" combined casting means to you, then perhaps.
