Voodan are divine spellcasters who worship neither gods nor nature itself, but rather spiritual entities who fall somewhere in between. A voodan is possessed of only limited spellcasting ability, but has other mystic capabilities granted to him by the loa, spirits of the natural world. The voodan does not deny the existence of greater powers such as deities; he simply chooses to focus his veneration on beings nearer to him.

To cast spells, the voodan prepares Gris-Gris that are the spell's focus and can be given to allies so they can cast the spell themselves at a lower caster level. Voodan are trained in the use of simple weapons and light armor but can use any type of armor, since armor does not interfere with the casting of divine spells. In addition to his normal complement of spells, every voodan chooses to focus on two of his loa's domains and specialize in one of its schools of magic. These domains give the voodan access to spells that he might otherwise never learn but do not grant special powers. Spells cast outside the selected school of magic are cast at three caster levels lower with a DC additionally reduced by three.

WARNING: To cast a spell, a Voodan must have a Wisdom score of 10 + the spell's level. For example, to cast a 9th-level spell, a Voodan must have a Wisdom of 19.
