Channeler

A young lady kneels in front a mound of freshly moved dirt. A simple pile of rocks adorns one end of the mound, identifying it as a crudely dug grave. The lady's hands are bruised and muddy, and she weeps pitifully into them. "Why?" She asks herself. "Why did those orcs come here? Mama... papa..."

"Power...." Like a whisper, at the edge of hearing. The lady falls backwards, startled, and looks around. Yet nothing is nearby.

"Power...." Again. She looks around, frantically searching for the source of the voice. "Do you wish... for power?" She nods meekly. "For revenge?"

"NO!" She stands and shouts, surprising herself and then meekly backs down. "No... mama taught me that an eye for an eye just leaves the world blind. But... if I can protect someone.. if I can make is so this doesn't happen to anyone else, then I'll take any power you can offer." She's met with silence, and closes her eyes. Suddenly, a warmth envelopes her, like an invisible entity pulling her into its arms. After a moment, the feeling of warmth is gone, but is replaced instead by a soft glow in her eyes. She understands.

Creating a Channeler

From Website http://www.taraloveperry.com/channeling--angels.html

As you make your channeler character, spend some time thinking about your divine patron and the obligations that your covenant imposes upon you. What led you to make the covenant, and how did you make contact with your patron? Did you search for your patron, or did your patron find and choose you? Do you struggle under the obligations of your covenant or serve joyfully in anticipation of the blessings promised to you? Work with your DM to determine how big a part your covenant will play in your character’s adventuring career. Your patron’s demands might drive you into adventures, or they might consist entirely of small favors you can do between adventures. What kind of relationship do you have with your patron? Is it friendly, devoted, familial, or romantic? How important does your patron consider you to be? What part do you play in your patron’s plans? Do you know other servants of your patron? How does your patron communicate with you? If you have a familiar, it might occasionally speak with your patron’s voice. Some channelers find messages from their patrons etched on trees, mingled among tea leaves, or adrift in the clouds—messages that only the channeler can see. Other channelers converse with their patrons in dreams or waking visions, or deal only with intermediaries.

Divine Patron

At 1st level, you have made a covenant with a celestial being of your choice: the Divine, the Mother, the Mystery, the Archangel, the Great Wyrm, and the Fallen which are detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 1st level and again at 6th, 10th, and 14th level.

Divine Patron features

Covenant Magic

Your own spiritual meditation and the power bestowed on you by your divine patron have given you facility with spells. See chapter 10 for the general rules of spellcasting and chapter 11 for the cleric spell list.

Cantrips

You know two cantrips of your choice from the cleric spell list. You learn additional cleric cantrips of your choice at higher levels, as shown in the Cantrips Known column of the Channeler table.

Spell Slots

The Channeler table shows how many spell slots you have. The table also shows what the level of those slots is; all of your spell slots are the same level. To cast one of your spells of 1st level or higher, you must expend a spell slot. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a short or long rest. For example, when you are 5th level, you have two 3rd-level spell slots. To cast the 1st-level spell cure wounds, you must spend one of those slots, and you cast it as a 3rd-level spell.

Spells Known of 1st Level and Higher

At 1st level, you know two 1st-level spells of your choice from the cleric spell list. The Spells Known column of the Channeler table shows when you learn more spells of your choice of 1st level and higher. A spell you choose must be of a level no higher than what’s shown in the table's Slot Level column for your level. When you reach 6th level, for example, you learn a new spell from the cleric spell list, which can be 1st, 2nd, or 3rd level.

Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the spells you know and replace it with another spell from the cleric spell list, which also must be of a level for which you have spell slots.

Spellcasting Ability

Charisma is your spellcasting ability for your channeler spells, so you use your Charisma whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Charisma modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a channeler spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.

  • Spell save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier
  • Spell attack modifier = your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier
Spellcasting Focus

You can use a holy symbol (found in chapter 5) as a spellcasting focus for channeler spells.

Divine Bolt

A special cantrip available to channelers. The Divine Bolt functions as the warlock's eldritch blast, but deals 1d8 radiant damage instead of 1d10 force damage.

Divine Invocations

In your study of divine lore, you have unearthed invocations, fragments of sacred knowledge that imbue you with an abiding divine ability. At 2nd level, you gain two divine invocations of your choice. Your invocation options are detailed at the end of this class description. When you gain certain levels, you gain additional invocations of your choice, as shown in the Invocations Known column of the Channeler table. Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the invocations you know and replace it with another invocation that you could learn at that level.

#Invocations

Covenant Favor

At 3rd level, your celestial patron bestows a blessing upon you for your loyal service. You gain one of the following features of your choice: Covenant Servant, Covenant Weapon, or Covenant Scripture.

Covenant Servant

You learn the find familiar spell and can cast it as a ritual. The spell doesn’t count against your number of spells known. When you cast the spell, you may choose one of the normal forms for your familiar or one of the following special forms: pseudodragon, cherub, photon, or a mephit. Additionally, when you take the Attack action, you can forgo one of your own attacks to allow your familiar to make one attack of its own with its reaction.

  • Note: For the cherub, use the Imp statblock with the following changes: type becomes Celestial (Shapechanger), alignment becomes lawful good, damage immunities become radiant and necrotic, condition immunities become frightened, languages become Celestial and Common, can change into a cat, dove, or beetle, Sting becomes Slam and deals bludgeoning damage, and extra damage from slam becomes radiant.
  • Note: For the photon, use the Shadow statblock with the following changes: type becomes Celestial, alignment becomes chaotic good, damage vulnerabilities become necrotic, damage immunities become radiant and poison, replace all instances of dim-light and darkness with bright light and sunlight respectively, and vice-versa.
Covenant Weapon

You can use your action to create a Covenant weapon in your empty hand. You can choose the form this melee weapon takes each time you summon it. You receive a +1 to attack and damage when attacking with your covenant weapon. This weapon counts as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage. Your covenant weapon disappears if it is more than 5 feet away from you for 1 minute or more. It also disappears if you use this feature again, if you dismiss the weapon (no action required), or if you die. You can transform one magic weapon into your covenant weapon by performing a special ritual while you hold the weapon. You perform the ritual over the course of 1 hour, which can be done during a short rest. You can then dismiss the weapon, shunting it into an extradimensional space, and it appears whenever you create your covenant weapon thereafter. You can’t affect an artifact or a sentient weapon in this way. The weapon ceases being your covenant weapon if you die, if you perform the 1-hour ritual on a different weapon, or if you use a 1-hour ritual to break your bond to it. The weapon appears at your feet if it is in the extradimensional space when the bond breaks.

Covenant Scripture

Your patron gives you a sacred text called a Book of Life. When you gain this feature, choose either cure wounds or healing word from the Cleric's spell list. While the book is on your person, you can cast that spell and it doesn’t count against your number of spells known. You also receive two additional spell slots to cast this spell, but only this spell. As with other spell slots, you regain these expended spell slots when you finish a short or long rest. This spell is cast at the same spell level as other spell slots for the channeler class. If you lose your Book of Life, you can perform a 1-hour ceremony to receive a replacement from your patron. This ceremony can be performed during a short or long rest, and it destroys the previous book. The book turns to ash when you die.

Ability Score Increase

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Bestowals

At 11th level, your patron grants you divine gifts called Bestowals. Choose one 6th-level spell from the cleric spell list as a Bestowal. You can cast your bestowal spell once without expending a spell slot. You must finish a long rest before you can do so again. At higher levels, you gain more cleric spells of your choice that can be cast in this way: one 7th-level spell at 13th level, one 8th-level spell at 15th level, and one 9th-level spell at 17th level. You regain all uses of your Bestowals when you finish a long rest.

Divine Vessel

At 20th level, you receive a part of the essence of divinity, and you shine with an inner radiance. Increase your Charisma score by 2, and the maximum for Charisma increases by 2. In addition, non-good entities that are currently hostile towards you must succeed on a Charisma saving throw equal to 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Charisma modifier at the start of every one of their turns or be frightened of you as long as you are within their vision. A creature that succeeds its save against this ability is immune to this effect. Undead and Fiends have disadvantage on this saving throw.

Divine Patrons

The beings that serve as patrons for channelers are mighty inhabitants of other planes of existence — not gods, but almost godlike in their power. Various patrons give their channelers access to different powers and invocations, and expect significant favors in return. Some patrons collect channelers, doling out divine knowledge relatively freely or boasting of their ability to gather mortals to their cause. Other patrons bestow their power cautiously, and might make a pact with only one channeler. Channelers who serve the same patron might view each other as allies, siblings, or rivals.

The Divine

You've never been one to strictly follow the gods, nevertheless, that hasn't stopped one from choosing you as its champion. You patron is godlike in its presence; perhaps a long-forgotten god, or a lesser deity with few followers.

If a creature succeeds on its saving throw, you can't use this feature on that creature again for 24 hours.
