Imaginary Warlock[edit]

Warlock Subclass

You don't quite know how you got your power. Or do you? Yes, you remember. The memories are coming back like a flood. You have made a friend. He's right there, see? Oh, they don't see him. They're probably just ignoring you anyways. Don't worry. Your friend is here to help. Always here. Always watching. Always waiting. Always watching.

Expanded Spell List[edit]

The Imaginary Friend lets you choose from the following expanded spell list when learning a new warlock spell.

1st Level dissonant whispers, hunter's mark

2nd Level phantasmal force, spiritual weapon*

3rd Level spirit guardians, wind wall

4th Level faithful hound, phantasmal killer

5th Level arcane hand, telekinesis

*If you chose Pact of the Blade, the Spiritual Weapon appears as an ethereal copy of it. If not, it appears as a dull, blurry outline of a clawed hand.

Imaginary Warlock Features[edit]

Imaginary Ally

At 1st level, your friend comes in to help at the most dire of times. If you drop to 0 Hit Points but are not killed outright, you can instead drop to 1 Hit Point and deal 1d4 Force damage to the attacker. Once you use this ability, you cannot use it until you complete a Long Rest.

Imaginary Help

At 1st level, you can summon your friend to do things for you. Once per day, you can cast alarm, unseen servant, or guiding bolt without any components or without using a spell slot. Once you use this feature, you cannot use it until you complete a Short or Long Rest.

Overflowing Imagination

At 6th level, your imagination has grown so powerful it affects your spells. Whenever you cast a spell, you can add an additional effect to it. Roll on a D100 (Percentile) table, and add the effect to the spell accordingly. You can do this an amount of times equal to your charisma modifier (minimum of 1). All the uses of this feature are returned on a Short or Long Rest.

3-4: The spell has the Subtle Spell metamagic effect applied to it.
