The Hive Queen[edit]

The Hive Queen is a warlock patron.

Long ago, when the world was young, a group of alien life forms known as the Hive came to the material plane. They were led by the all-controlling Hive Queen, a powerful leader who controlled the rest of the hive with her very mind, keeping a collective intelligence. In fact, the Hive Queen was the Hive, and the rest of the Hive only extensions of herself. One day, however, everything changed. Powerful warriors from the material plane fought the Hive, defeating the Hive Queen and locking her in a prison deep within the Underdark. Since that fateful day, she has been laying eggs, preparing for her rise. However, she can't do it alone. She has sent out fragments of her mind, searching for someone who can help her rise. You have been chosen, and you will bring the Hive Queen back to power. Your very mind is now part of the Hive Queen, and you now serve as a small cell in the collective intelligence of the Hive Queen.
