The Aberration (5e Subclass)
From D&D Wiki
Your patron is a powerful entity from the Far Realms, a place of madness beyond reality, far away from the standard cosmology. You have bound yourself to an Aboleth, a Beholder, a Mind Flayer or an Alhoon. Its goals may be impossible to understand from your perspective, but these is something you do understand: these creatures value the power of the mind above all else, and they value those that understand the potency of the mind.
- Expanded Spell List
The Aberration lets you choose from an expanded list of spells when you learn a warlock spell. The following spells are added to the warlock spell list for you. You automatically learn them at appropriate levels and this spell don’t go against your spell known. Additionally double your cantrips known.
|1st||shield, ray of sickness|
|2nd||levitate, nystul’s magic aura|
|3rd||slow, lightning bolt|
|4th||confusion, vitriolic sphere|
