A Living Well
What is a Keeper?
A Keeper is someone whose intense bond to life allows them to manifest a companion from a Demiplane of their slain foes and treasured allies.
Keepers draw their power from wells of everlasting living energy left behind as residue from long dead casualties of the 1000 year war. They channel this might to destroy their foes and manipulate the world around them. Some try and escape the burden of carrying this living energy with them and turn to necromantic powers, some embrace the attachment to life much like a druid or a cleric and use the power of life to aid the world, and others try to master the most unworldly kind of life dwelling within the cosmos.
A Keeper's Cause
Have you been haunted all your life by whispers in the back of your mind? Perhaps you were training to be a druid but the way your powers manifested was far more bizarre. Maybe you are part of an ancient organization of Keepers to maintain the natural order of life or even destroy it? Could you have been a victim to some necromantic experiment? Regardless you must face the world alongside your captured companions and seek out the truth.

Well of Life
You can spend 8 hours during a long rest to establish a demi plane anchored to your self. This is your 'well of life', the place to which you send any creature you create a life pact with.
The demi plane has a limited capacity and can only hold a total combined CR equal to your Three times your Keeper Level times your Proficiency Modifier.
Any creature in the demi plane does not need to eat, drink, breathe or sleep and does not age. They also take short and long rests whenever the Keeper does, spending HP to recover their HP as needed.
Once you have established your well of life you can send any creature that you have formed a life pact with to that plane with an Action, so long as that creature is within 30 feet of you. Any items the creature is holding or wearing are send into the well of life with it, however any it is merely carrying are left behind.
You can also use an Action to summon a single creature from your well of life to an empty space next to you, however you may not have more than one creature summoned this way at the same time.
In order to form a Life Pact with a creature you need to either convince it to submit its life to you without using force or coercion (at the GMs discretion), or subdue to the creature.
You can subdue a creature by touching it while it is incapacitated and making a Charisma (Intimidation) or Charisma (Persuasion) check against DC 15 or twice the creatures CR, whichever is higher. Unless you have either finished the creature off yourself or otherwise significantly dominated it during the battle that lead to its incapacitated state you are at a disadvantage for that throw. If you fail then the creature cannot be subdued by you for the next 24 hours.
You can only form a pact with a creature with an intelligence of 5 or lower unless the creature volunteers without the use of force or coercion (GM's discretion).
You can use this feature to form a pact a number of creatures equal to your Wisdom modifier (at least one) and regain all uses on a Long Rest.
A newly pacted creature is instantly send to the Well of Life and can't be summoned until it has recovered all its HP once. It also gets the following stat changes:
- its HP gets capped to your Keeper Level times 5 (this increases as you gain levels, even for already pacted creatures)
- its non-equipment based AC gets capped to 10+your proficiency modifier (this increases as you gain levels, even for already pacted creatures)
- its ability scores get capped to 10 + your Keeper Level (this increases as you gain levels, even for already pacted creatures)
- it looses all of the following
- legendary actions of all kinds (actions, reactions, bonus actions, move actions)
- lair actions of all kinds (actions, reactions, bonus actions, move actions)
- legendary traits
- supernatural abilities, features, traits and attacks (including the ability to cast spells)
If a creature summoned forth from the Well of Life dies it, and all items it is holding or wearing, turn into mud. It also looses its life pact. Only a Wish can reverse this result.
At 2nd level, choose one of the following options.
- You gain a +2 bonus to attack rolls you make with ranged weapons.
- When you are wielding a melee weapon in one hand and no other weapons, you gain a +2 bonus to damage rolls with that weapon.
- While you are wearing armor, you gain a +1 bonus to AC.
- Great Weapon Fighting
- When you roll a 1 or 2 on a damage die for an Attack you make with a melee weapon that you are wielding with two hands, you can reroll the die and must use the new roll, even if the new roll is a 1 or a 2. The weapon must have the Two-Handed or Versatile property for you to gain this benefit.
At 3rd level your choices leading up to this point have given you a new view on life that manifests in one of five orders:
- Natural Order
- Undead Order
- Eldritch Order
- Draconic Order
- Giantkin Order.
You gain an additional feature from your choice at 7th, 13th, and 18th level.
Ability Score Increase
When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.
At 5th level you may now order a creature summoned by your Life Pact feature with a reaction. The only prerequisite to commanding creatures this way is that it must be your turn to command them. In addition you may add your Strength modifier or your Dexterity modifier (whichever is higher) to the melee damage roles of a creature summoned via your Life Pact feature. From this point onward you may spend an action to see through the eyes of any creature under your control and feel all of their senses as they feel them. You may end this effect at anytime but as long as you remain in this state, you are blind and deaf in regards to your own senses.
At 6th level your weapon attacks are now considered magical for the purpose of bypassing resistance and immunity to nonmagical weapons. Creatures summoned via your Life Pact feature also gain this benefit.
At 9th level slam attacks made by creatures summoned via your Life Pact feature now deal 1D8 bludgeoning damage. In addition you may choose one of five combat maneuver's that your Life Pact creatures may use. At 15th level this damage increases to 1D10 bludgeoning damage and you may select an additional combat maneuver.
- Pack Tactics
- The creature has advantage on all attack rolls if at least one of the its allies is within 5 feet of the creature and the ally isn't incapacitated.
- Heavy blow
- When the creature lands a slam attack they may attempt to perform the shove action with their bonus action.
- Mounted Tactics
- Well being mounted by a Keeper the creature gains a +2 to its Armor Class & damage roles and the Keeper has advantage on initiative checks.
- Grounding Strike
- A enemy who takes damage from the creatures slam attack well flying must succeed a Strength saving throw with a DC of 8 + your proficiency bonus + the summoned creatures Strength modifier or be catapulted to the ground causing its speed to becomes 0 until the end of its next turn.
- Innate Magic
- The creature gains the innate ability to cast the spell Life Transference one time as an action, but it can only be used by a single creature summoned from your Well of Life and the target for the healing of this spell must always be the Keeper. At 15th level they may use this ability twice. You regain all uses of this ability and may switch which creature gains this benefit over the course of a long rest.
At 10th level you may touch any nonmagical object of huge or smaller and it will animate into an awake, conscious, and mobile being after commencing a 1 minute long ritual. You may turn the creature back into an inanimate object with an action but only if the creature is willing. Creatures summoned via this feature cannot join your Well of Life. Creatures given sentience are generally grateful and tend to like Keepers if they have no reason not to but aren't compelled to help you if they choose not to. It remembers creatures that have walked by and everything that the object has ever experienced before sentience. The Dungeon Master determines the statistics for creatures summoned via this feature. You may use this ability a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier (a minimum of once) and you regain all uses of this ability after a long rest.
At 11th level your mastery over living energy has allowed you to grant complex thought to otherwise simple beings. If a creature summoned via your Life Pact feature is not sentient, it gains sentience and learns every language the Keeper knows. Although it can make its own decisions, it is still bound to the Keeper and will not seek motives that harm the Keeper. In addition creatures summoned via your Life Pact feature gain a bonus to their Armor Class equal to your Wisdom modifier.
At 14th level your powers over living energy allows you to shape the living as you see fit. You may cast the spell Polymorph 3 times without material components. Aside from beasts, you may also transform targets into creatures of a different creature type. The creature type you may select is based on your Living Order as shown by the chart below. However, the maximum Challenge Rating of creatures you may turn into or turn others into is 8. If the creature you transform into has the ability to cast spells or speak, you may do so. Your spellcasting ability is Wisdom and you regain all expended uses of this ability after a long rest.

- The Undead Order: Undead
- The Eldritch Order: Aberration
- The Draconic Order: Dragon
- The Giantkin Order: Giant
At 15th level the essence of life has infused itself into you causing your strikes to shower your enemies with overwhelming force and your body to withstand the test of time. Whenever you land a successful weapon attack on an enemy they take 1D8 extra Force damage. In addition for every 10 years that pass, your body only ages 1 year.
At 17th level The rage of life wells within your summoned companions empowering them with brutal might and allowing their attacks to cleave through enemies. Once on each of your turns when a creature summoned via your Life Pact feature makes a slam attack, they can make another slam attack against a different creature that is within 5 feet of the original target and within your summoned creatures reach.
At 20th level your immense power over life gives you more access to your Well of Life. You may spend an action to enter or leave your Well of Life and may stay there as long as you wish causing the land itself to bow to serve you, supplying you with endless food, comfort, and shelter. If you leave the Well of Life you reappear in the nearest safe and unoccupied space closest to where you entered it. You may store items in your Well of Life as you see fit. You may now allow others entities into your Well of Life if they cast the Gate or Plane Shift spell. The creatures in your Well of Life will remain passive towards your guests unless you deem them no longer welcome, in which case they will be hostile to the guests and all terrain within your Well of Life will turn to difficult terrain for the unwelcome guests. In addition you may now have two creatures summoned via your Life Pact feature at any given time, however you may still only order one of your summoned creatures during your turn.
The Natural Order
You have embraced the life flowing through you and become a pure manifestation of light and nature. You dedicate yourself to the purity of life and its preservation. Your Well of Life becomes a menagerie of life and beauty. Creatures brought to the Demiplane become covered in bark, antlers, fur, claws, flowers, or other natural features. As the holy life of nature flows through you, your body may undergo some of these mutations as well. Creatures who were already Animals, Plants, or Fey that are banished to the Menagerie remain generally the same in appearance.

On a failed save, effected creatures cannot target any other creature besides themselves or your summoned creature as a target for weapon attacks and spell attacks. Spells with a radius such as fireball must include your summoned creature within it's boundary. At the end of each of an effected creature's turn they may repeat their saving throw against this ability. If you recall a summoned creature into your Well of Life, taunted enemies are immediately freed from this effect. Creatures who are immune to charm effects are immune to this ability.

- Lord of the Woods
At 18th level your creature type becomes beast, plant or fey (your choice). As an avatar of life you will likely be sought after by higher beings in order to ally themselves with you or try and drain your life energy. From this point on you may spend your action to merge with a creature summoned via your Life Pact feature into a fusion of both of your bodies. Well merged with your summoned creature you take on all of the statistics as your summoned creature currently has as described by your Life Pact feature including its current hit points. Well in this form you gain the effects of any feature that normally effects creatures summoned via your Life Pact feature. You may use weapons in this form or make slam attacks (your choice) and maintain all your class features. Every time you land a successful weapon attack on an enemy they must succeed a Wisdom saving throw with a DC of 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier or be taunted as described by your Guardian's Call feature. Whenever a creature attacks you with a melee attack well in this form, they take piercing damage equal to your Wisdom modifier from barbed thorns that protrude from your body. This form lasts an hour or until it drops to 0 hit points. When this form is destroyed the creature you merged with returns to your Well of Life with 1 hit point and you return to the hit points you were at before transforming. You may use this ability once and regain expended uses after a long rest.
The Undead Order
Although most Keepers accept the gift of life within them you have denied your gift and turned to vile necromancy. You twist and warp the dead to serve you and become a patron of the dead. Life is just something to be abused for powers in your eyes. Your Well of Life becomes a Graveyard filled with muck and tombstones. Any creature banished to the Demiplane has rotting flesh, a skeleton frame, wraith like features, ectoplasm, or other undead features.

You may summon replacement creatures this way twice and regain the uses of this after a short or long rest.
- Grave Lord

Any creature banished to the Demiplane has their body heavily influenced by draconic magic similar to the way a Dragonborn compares to a Human. Some examples of this are scaly skin, leathery wings, claws, or dragon shaped skulls. As draconic blood flows through you, your body may undergo some of these mutations as well.

On a failed save they gain vulnerability to one of the following damage types of your choice until the start of your next turn: acid, poison, cold, fire, or lightening. This has no effect if the target has immunity to the selected damage type, and if the target has resistance they lose the resistance instead of becoming vulnerable. You may use this ability a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier (a minimum of once) and regain expended uses on a long rest. In addition you may merge creatures within your Well of Life with a combined Challenge Rating of 5 or more to create a dragon egg. The type of dragon egg that is created is up to your Dungeon Master's discretion. After one week, the egg will hatch into a Wyrmling. To further advance the dragon's growth you may now use the draconic feasting ability:

The Difficulty Class of saving throws generated via this feature is equal to 8 + your proficiency modifier + your Wisdom modifier. Metallic dragons still have the option of picking between a damaging breath or the other breath weapon detailed in their bestiary however they may only use this type of breath once before completing a long rest. Instead of the original damage of a dragon's breath, dragons deal damage of their appropriate type according to the chart listed below. Breath weapons still recharge as normal and the area they effect, such as a line or cone, remains the same as it does in the bestiary of each individual dragon.
- Wyrmling Dragon breath: 6D6
- Young Dragon breath: 8D6
- Adult Dragon breath: 10D6
- Ancient Dragon breath: 12D6
- Fearful Presence
At 13th level dragons which have the Fearful Presence action may now spend their action to use it. The DC of this ability is equal to 8 + your proficiency modifier + your Wisdom Modifier.

- Draconic Lord
Starting at 18th level your creature type becomes Dragon and you gain resistance to one of the following damage types of your choice: acid, poison, cold, fire, or lightening. You may change your selected damage type after completing a short rest. As an avatar of draconic influence you may draw the attention of powerful dragons seeking to destroy or befriend you.

The Giantkin Order
- Giant's City
Giantkin Keepers are Keepers who draw their might from Titans and Giants who died long ago. As Giantkin Keepers grow stronger, they grow in size and find themselves thinking more like their ancient patrons. Your Well of Life becomes a expansive viking city suited to fit giants. Any creature banished to the Demiplane becomes taller, wider, and more humanoid. Some examples of this are beards, apposable thumbs, or a muscled upright upper body. As giant blood flows through you, your body may grow more as well. The creature type of creatures summoned via your Life Pact feature becomes Giant. Creatures who were already giants before being banished to your Giant's City remain relatively the same in appearance.
- Giant's Fist
At 3rd level your unarmed strikes now deal bludgeoning damage equal to 1D4 + your Strength modifier. From this point onward you may cast Enlarge/Reduce once as a bonus action without material components and a duration of concentration up to 10 minutes, however the target of the spell must be you or a creature summoned via your Life Pact feature and you must select the Enlarge option. You regain the use of this feature after completing a short or long rest. In addition once a turn, well enlarged, if you or a creature summoned via your Life Pact feature kills an enemy, you may move up to half your movement and make a single unarmed strike against a creature within your reach.
- Rock Throw
At 7th level you may spend an action to pick up a large boulder, chunk of rubble, or rip large pieces of material out of walls directly and make a ranged attack against a target within 60ft of you. If you cannot conceivably gain anything to throw, you may not use this feature. You are proficient with this weapon and add your Strength modifier to attack roles and damage rolls made with it. If the rock hits an enemy, it deals 1D12 + your Strength modifier bludgeoning damage. If your size is large or larger this deals 2D12 + your Strength modifier bludgeoning damage instead. At 18th level whenever a creature is damaged via your Rock Throw ability they must succeed a Strength saving throw with a Difficulty Class equal to 8 + your proficiency modifier + your Strength modifier.

In addition you may use your action to mark an enemy within sight as your prey. Whenever a creature is marked by this ability they must succeed a Charisma saving throw with a Difficulty Class equal to 8 + your proficiency modifier + your Strength modifier. On a failed save, the target is frightened of you. Even if the target succeeds, they are still marked. The mark lasts 1 hour or until you mark another creature, and you have advantage on survival checks to track marked targets. Whenever you or a creature summoned via your Life Pact feature lands a successful weapon attack on a marked creature they take an additional 1D6 force damage. You may use this ability a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier (a minimum of once) and regain all uses of this ability after a long rest.
- Giant Lord
At 18th level your creature type becomes Giant and your Strength and Constitution scores increase by 2. Your maximum for those scores is now 22 as well. Your size increases by one category. This is permanent and cannot be taken away. As an avatar of titanic might, titans turn in their graves as you walk and giants hail you as a leader. From this point on you may now pickup and throw most creature as ammunition for your Rock Throw feature. You may not throw creatures who are more then one size larger then you. You may decide whether the thrown target takes damage or not. If you choose for the thrown target to take damage, they take damage as if they were hit by your Rock Throw feature.
