Godly Patron[edit]

At 1st level, you struck a bargain with a god of your choice: Bahumat, Bane, or Iluvator each of which is detailed at the end of the class description. Your choice grants you features at 1st level and again at 6th, 10th, and 14th level.

Godly Patron features

Pact Magic[edit]

Your arcane research and the magic bestowed on you by your patron have given you facility with spells.

Cantrips

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

Spell Slots

The Prophet 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 Prophets 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 thunderwave, you must spend one of those slots, and you cast it as a 3rd-level spell.

Spells Known of 1st Level and Higher

Prophets can choose spells from the warlock spell list or cleric spell list. At 1st level, you know two 1st-level spells of your choice from the warlock spell list or cleric spell list.

The Spells Known column of the Prophets table shows when you learn more Prophet 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 warlock spell, which can be 1st, 2nd, or 3rd level.

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

Spellcasting Ability

Charisma is your spellcasting ability for your Prophets 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 Prophet 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 an arcane focus as a spellcasting focus for your Prophet spells.

Relics[edit]

In your study of occult lore, you have unearthed Relics, fragments of forbidden knowledge that imbue you with an abiding magical ability.

At 2nd level, you gain two Relics of your choice. Your Relic options are detailed at the end of the class description. When you gain certain Prophet levels, you gain additional Relics of your choice, as shown in the Relics Known column of the Prophet table.

Additionally, when you gain a level in this class, you can choose one of the Relics you know and replace it with another Relic that you could learn at that level.

Pact Boon[edit]

At 3rd level, your Godly Patron bestows a gift upon you for your loyal service. You gain one of the following features of your choice.

Pact of the Guardian

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 can choose one of the normal forms for your familiar or one of the following special forms: pseudodragon, or sprite.

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.

Pact of the Spear

You can use your action to create a pact weapon in your empty hand. The form of the pact weapon is always a spear with a golden tip. You are proficient with it while you wield it. This weapon counts as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage.

Your pact 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 spear into your pact 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 pact weapon thereafter. You can't affect an artifact or a sentient weapon in this way. The weapon ceases being your pact 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.

Pact of Heavenly Knowledge

Your patron gives you a grimoire called a Book of Light. When you gain this feature, choose three cantrips from any class's spell list (the three needn't be from the same list). While the book is on your person, you can cast those cantrips at will. They don't count against your number of cantrips known. If they don't appear on the warlock spell list, they are nonetheless warlock spells for you.

If you lose your Book of Light, 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.

Pact of Gods Tongue

Your patron allows you speek using their voice. When using this ability your Charisma is temporarily increased by 2 and you gain proficiency with persuasion and if you already have proficiency you gain double proficiency.

If you are magically or physically, gagged ect, you can use this ability to break whatever spell or material is stopping you from speeking, this ability can be used your Prophet Level/2 times per long rest with a minimum of 1.

Ability Score Increase[edit]

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.

Banish Demons[edit]

You can use this ability to attempt to banish a demon. As an action, you present your holy symbol and speak a commanding phrase censuring demonic presences. Examples of a commanding phrase are "Go back to the shadows from whence you came!". Each demon that can see or hear you within 30 feet of you must make a Wisdom saving throw. Starting at 5th level, when a demonic creature fails its saving throw the creature is instantly destroyed if its challenge rating is at or below a certain threshold, as shown in the Destroy Undead table.

Banish Demons
Prophet Level Banishes Demons of CR . . .
5th 1/2 or lower
8th 1 or lower
11th 2 or lower
14th 3 or lower
17th 4 or lower

Divine Intervention[edit]

Beginning at 7th level, you can call on your deity to intervene on your behalf when your need is great.

Imploring your deity's aid requires you to use your action. Describe the assistance you seek, and roll percentile dice. If you roll a number equal to or lower than your Prophet level, your deity intervenes. The DM chooses the nature of the intervention; the effect of any cleric spell or cleric domain spell would be appropriate.

If your deity intervenes, you can't use this feature again for 7 days. Otherwise, you can use it again after you finish a long rest.


Mystic Arcanum[edit]

At 11th level, your patron bestows upon you a magical secret called an arcanum. Choose one 6th-level spell from the Prophet spell list as this arcanum.

You can cast your arcanum 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 Prophet 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 Mystic Arcanum when you finish a long rest.

Radiant Spellmaster[edit]

At 20th level, you can draw on your inner reserve of mystical power while entreating your patron to regain expended spell slots. You can spend 1 minute entreating your patron for aid to regain all your expended spell slots from your Pact Magic feature. Once you regain spell slots with this feature, you must finish a long rest before you can do so again.
