Gift of the Eldritch, an ode to Thunder Lotus[edit]

On a rare occasion a mortal may be given a finer chance at life, maybe through sheer luck or from an outside source; this time that source is that of a bored Elder God known by the terms "Old One" or "Outer One". They have decided to take pity on your soul and give you strengths unknown to man and rise to power and glory...but at what cost?

When choosing this Dominion you gain access to not only several spells a Cleric would not be able to learn, but also unlock the cantrip tables of Sorcerer, Wizard, and Warlock!
