I've been working on a character concept, and I could us a bit of help. What I want to create is that "creepy old hag-lady" whose specialty is insight and divination. She's the old lady who pees in a cup and makes weird concoctions, goes into trances and sees into the future, reads palms and tea leaves and rune stones, studies the stars for signs and portents, that kinda thing. I got the inspiration mainly from the old witch in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, and the weird stinky mystic lady in the later seasons of Farscape.
I've got the background and stuff worked out, and now all that is left is the determination of class and skills. Using the D20 3.5 rules and various supplements, what would you guys suggest? Divination specialist wizards just don't have the spell selection Im looking for, and clerics have that whole God thing that really doesn't fit with her theme. What's a good class for divination, future-seeing, and fortune-telling?
