Arith was raised to venerate her ancestors, as are all elves of the Amberwood. As she grew, though, the ancestors took special interest in her. A tutelary spirit mentored her in arcane secrets, and she eventually formed a pact with her that provides her with the powers of a warlock. Arith serves as a defender of the Golden Realm as it faces an eruption of fiendish, corrupting standing stones.

Arith, Elf Warlock

New Warlock Patron: Ancestors

You have made a pact with the combined spiritual force of your ancestors. These beings seek the survival and advancement of their descendants because they thrive on veneration. The victories you earn as an adventurer are made in the name of those who came before.

Expanded Spell List

Your ancestors let 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.

Spell Level Spells
1st bless, false life
2nd detect thoughts, gentle repose
3rd clairvoyance, revivify
4th death ward, guardian of faith
5th commune, legend lore

Lure of Home

Starting at 1st level, you are always aware of the exact direction and distance to your ancestral homeland, if you are on the same plane.

Protection of the Ancients

Starting at 6th level, you can use your reaction to add your proficiency bonus to your Armor Class until the end of your next turn. You can use this ability a number of times equal to your Charisma modifier.

You regain all uses of this feature when you take a short or long rest.

Bastion of Life

Starting at 10th level, you gain resistance to necrotic damage. If an effect would reduce your maximum hit points by any amount, it reduces them by half that amount instead. No creature may regain hit points as part of an attack that would reduce your maximum hit points. You restore your maximum hit points to normal after a short rest.

Weight of History

Starting at 14th level, you can burden a creature with the memories of thousands of lifetimes. As an action, choose a creature you can see within 60 feet of you. It must make an Intelligence saving throw against your Warlock spell save DC. On a failed save, the creature takes 8d8 psychic damage and is stunned. An intelligent creature babbles about these new memories, and its ravings may contain hints at the GM’s discretion. This effect lasts for 1 minute or until the creature takes any damage, whichever comes first.

You must finish a short or long rest before you can use this feature again.
