The Terminus Which Waits For All[edit]

Warlock Subclass

You have made a pact with an extraplanar entity formed of and fueled by the fears of mortals; your patron is associated with the fear of death. This entity is usually unable or unwilling to influence the material plane beyond granting supernatural abilities to those it believes will provide even more fear that it may feed on. If it has chosen you, it either believes you will make the fear of death widespread, or that you yourself will develop into a source of this fear.

Expanded Spell List

The Terminus Which Waits For All 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.

Level Spells
1st level false life, inflict wounds
2nd augury, gentle repose
3rd feign death, life transference
4th death ward, black tentacles
5th danse macabre, enervation
Memento Mori

Starting at 1st level, you are immune to being frightened. Additionally, you can cast cause fear at 1st level without expending a spell slot; you must complete a short or long rest to use this feature again.


Starting at 6th level, whenever a creatures dies within 100 feet of you, you gain a Mortal Inspiration die, a d4. You can roll the die and add or subtract the number rolled to one ability check, attack roll, or saving throw made by a creature within 100 feet of you, including yourself. You can wait until after the d20 is rolled before deciding to use the Mortal Inspiration die, but must decide before the GM says whether the roll succeeds or fails. Once the Mortal Inspiration die is rolled, it is lost. You can only have 1 mortal inspiration die at a time.

Cheating Death

Starting at 10th level, you can cast raise dead without expending a spell slot. When you do so, roll a d2; on a 1, you are reduced to 1 hit point and take a −4 penalty to all attack rolls, saving throws, and ability checks; every time you finish a long rest, this penalty is reduced by 1 until it disappears.

Absolute Mortality

Starting at 14th level, you know how it feels to die. You can cast cause fear at 1st level without expending a spell slot. This spell can effect any creature, including undead, constructs, and creatures otherwise immune to becoming frightened, as long as they believe it is possible for them to die or otherwise cease to exist.

Your Pact Boon[edit]

Each Pact Boon option produces a special creature or an object that reflects your patron's nature.

Pact of the Chain.You familiar could appear gaunt and skeletal, or actually be a reanimated corpse.

Pact of the Blade.You could summon weapons which are carved out of bone, or which appear normal but radiate unmistakable dread.

Pact of the Tome.As a servant of the Terminus Which Waits For All, your Book of Shadows could be a book bound in faded black bookcloth, written in ancient languages and scripts at the beginning which become steadily more modern closer to the end.
