This content intends to provide a different experience, or goes beyond the scope of the anticipated subjects and situations, than the # 5e rules were intended to handle. Some portions of the content below may not be what you expect from traditional game content. When implementing this content, DMs and Players should read over all the information carefully, and consider the following specific notes of interest:
This class is a custom class from a game it has many different abilities and skills. The flavor of the class, is different from the 5e guidelines everyone is used to. This custom class has multiple features from other classes. The class's abilities are both from the MMO RPG game know as "Neverwinter" Some other abilities are created to fill in anything that isn't from the game. I did this to to follow the guidelines of the template. For example, the sub classes are not in the game they are something I created. This class can't be made into a multi class and as such the multi class at the bottom has been removed.

Scoure Warlock[edit]

The Background of The Scourge Warlock[edit]

You're a half demon, you sold a part of your soul to the devil for a wish that you wanted. The devil then tricked you and made you do things for him. He created a demon blade which allows you to use the fiery souls in hell to burn your enemies alive. You wonder the world in search of torturing evil souls and trapping them into hell. You are able to move into the shadows and kill your enemies, while doing deeds for the devil. The first time you ever meet the devil you start to hear voices in your head they cause agonizing pain. The devil explains disrespecting him or not doing what you're told will result in agonizing pain. You agree to obey his command, as you return you realize you like killing people and it increases your blood lust and have the need for killing people. The more you kill the more you get excited, it is said the people that have died from his hand have said that his fighting became more aggressive and more powerful the more he fights with you.

You start to become the talk of the town and are known across the lands. As you absorb the souls of your victims your blade become more powerful and allows you to unleash new attacks and absorb souls to heal yourself. You eventually meet people going on a hunt and join your team in adventure to satisfy the lust for murder and excite your blood lust.

The Path of Godly Light[edit]

God talks to you, He tells you that you've committed a lot of sin. He offers you a deal to be one of his royal angelic knights. Satan tells you not to leave and that he will cause a great amount of pain and make you suffer, However you remember why you chose to go to Satan and realize that being manipulated by Satan isn't what you want. You accept God's offer and his hands pull you into his grasps and begin to purify you. Your demonic armor turns into bright, radiant angelic armor. Your spells allow you to shoot out the souls of angelic warriors. Use angels to heal yourself, the people around you and your friends, You also protect the people who are worthy.

Though you plead your name for god people start trusting but Clerics, Priests, and Paladins don't trust you still. Reaching 15th level the people, Clerics, Priests, and Paladins trust you a lot more and everyone starts to put faith in you.

By letting the souls of monsters and other beings cursed into the darkness. The people of Heaven and the people that have faith give their faith in you.

Negative emotions can make you spiral into the past. When this happens you must make an insanity check to see if you go insane or get back into control. All of your kills are no longer to collect souls for the devil. They're now to release there soul and purify it in the name of God.
