Deep Patron[edit]

This is a subclass of the warlock class.

It is within every drop of water. Every glass you drink. The puddle you've stepped in. The rain that pours from the sky as a hurricane rages on. From the smallest drops to the deepest depths of the ocean, The Deep One can see it all. It is the horror that lurks beyond our vison, motives unknown. Why he chose to you, thats for him to know. Whatever the reason, he has blessed you with unfathomable powers, rooted in a deep, cold corner of reality. This patron is mainly associated with supports, protection and some summoning. However, high ranking Deacons often have power on the cosmic influence on the deep. Upon making a pact with this patron this 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.

Fractures of The Deep

Starting at 1st level, you gain the ability to channel the crippling or healing power of the Deep. You have a pool of d8s that you spend to fuel this ability. The number of dice is equal to 1 + your Charisma modifier (minimum 2). As a bonus action, you can choose one creature you can see within 60 feet of you, spending up to 2 dice from the pool. Roll the dice, add them together, and then you may heal or harm the target. If you choose to heal the target, then they regain hit points equal to the total rolled. If you choose to harm the target, then the target makes a Constitution saving throw. On a failure, the target takes cold damage equal to the total rolled and has disadvantage on attack rolls until the start of your next turn. Your pool regains all expended dice when you finish a short or long rest. The dice in your pool change when you reach certain levels in this class, increasing to d10s at 11th level and d12s at 17th level.

Comfort of The Deep

At level 6 when a creature within 30 ft you you takes damage you can use your reaction to submerge them in watery tentacles from the Deep to protect them and heal them for your Charisma modifier + your warlock level. Until the start of their next turn they are incapacitated, their movement speed is set to 0, and they have resistance to damage from non-magical sources. You can use this feature equal to half your Charisma modifier rounded up. It refreshes after a short or long rest.

Boon of The Deep

Starting at 10th level you gain the ability to summon a watery manifestation of the Deep. You can cast the Conjure Elemental spell without expending a spell slot. When you do so, you can only summon a Water Elemental. Additionally, when you lose concentration on the spell, the elemental disappears and returns to the Deep rather than becoming hostile. Once you cast Conjure Elemental in this way, you can't do so again until you finish a long rest.

Ward of The Deep

Starting at 14th level, the primordial magics you commune with protect you when you are the most defenseless. If you are reduced to 0 hit points or are incapacitated against your will, you can immediately gain the benefits of Conjure Elemental as if it were cast twice. It summons 2 water elementals. The conjured elementals appears within 20 feet of you. If they receive no commands from you, they protect you from harm and attack your foes. The spell lasts for 1 hour, requiring no concentration, or until you dismiss it as a bonus action.

Once you use this feature, you can’t use it again until you finish a long rest.
