DnD Class Build Warlock Celestial

Dungeons and Dragons – Mystara

Class Build – Warlock: Celestial

Source: Players Handbook (5e-wiz-ph-49)

For one of my new gamers they are building a warlock using the clestial option that is part of my campaign setting so I thought I would make a post about all the linked content so its all in one place and will make referencing it easier.

Where to Start – Concept

Race is one of the most inportant aspects of character creation as it points to solutions of class, homeland and background options that work well with the charcter concept.

There are a few different options in my setting for taking on character races, here is a link to the source material for my players – DnD Races Page.

Player was happy with Elf of Fire (Sunfey).

Class Options – Celestial?

Base racial options for the character are as follows.

The player has chosen to go with Warlock and Pact of the Celestial.

Character Origin

Selecting Attributes

This has been left with the player to decide, when I have the details I will add them in here as part of the character build walk through.

Attributes have 27 point buy, starting with a base of 8.

  • Total Points (25/27)
  • Strength gains 8 – costing 0
  • Dexterity gains 10 – costing 2
  • Constitution gains 13 – costing 5
  • Intelligence gains 14 – costing 7
  • Wisdom gains 12 – costing 4
  • Charisma gains 15 – costing 9

STR 8 (-1) DEX 10 (-) CON 13 (+1) INT 14 (+2) WIS 12 (+1) CHA 15 (+2)

After Point by add the following racial changes: +1 Con, +2 Dex, +3 Int, +1 Cha

STR 8 (-1) DEX 12 (+1) CON 14 (+2) INT 17 (+3) WIS 12 (+1) CHA 16 (+3)

Heritage

Chosen the Elven Race.

Elemental Subrace

Chosen the Sunfey Elven subrace.

Culture

Culture – Cosmopolitan (Level Up)

Backgrounds

The character background options for consideration suitable for Alfheim:

Background – Courtier/Guildmember (SCAG/Level Up)

  • Ability Score Increase – +1 Con and one to any ability.
  • Skill Proficiencies – Two of your choice (recommended Insight and Persuasion)
  • Languages (Background) plus two languages of your choice
  • Court Functionary (Background) Your knowledge of how bureaucracies function lets you gain access to the records and inner workings of any noble court or government you encounter. You know who the movers and shakers are, whom to go to for the favors you seek, and what the current intrigues of interest in the group are.
  • Guild Business (Background) While in a city or town, you can maintain a moderate lifestyle by plying your trade. Furthermore, the guild occasionally informs you of jobs that need doing. Completing such a job might require performing a downtime activity, or it might require a full adventure. The guild provides a modest reward if you’re successful.
  • Adventures and Advancement – Once you have completed several quests or endeavors advancing guild business, you may be promoted to guild officer. You gain access to more lucrative contracts. In addition, the guild supports you at a moderate lifestyle without you having to work.
Destiny

Destiny – Excellence (Level Up)

Name and Sex

The name of the character will be left to the player with the sex of it also being up to the player. Playing a male of a female has not impact on what the character can do, just how they will be perceived in different encounters.

  • Male with the name Llewell

Choice of Background and Quirks

I left the choice of quirks and background to the player.

  • Trait: I’m full of witty aphorisms and have a proverb for every occasion.
  • Ideals: Generosity. My talents were given to me so that I could use them to benefit the world.
  • Bonds: I owe my family a great debt for forging me into the person I am today.
  • Flaws: I’m quick to assume that someone is trying to cheat me

Languages

For Mystara there are two common languages, Alphatian and Thyatian. Not everyone know both languages. A good trade language is the Traladara language used as a core for a few countries in the region as well.

  • Racial Languages (Elven) You speak, read and write Common (Thyatian and Alphatian) and Elvish (Clan dialect)
  • Subrace Language (Sunfey) You know two extra language of your choice. – Atruaghin (Bear Clan), Traladaran
  • Background Languages (Background) plus two languages of your choice – Ylari, Ethengar
  • Intelligence Languages (3) – Dwarvish, Draconic, Sylvan
  • Secret Craft – Elvenologist – Elvish, due to already knowing it, learnt Gnomish
  • Secret Craft – Dragonologist – Draconic, due to already knowing it, learnt Jotun (Giant)
  • Secret Craft – Cryptologist – Lalor (Halfling)
  • Secret Craft – Celestologist – Celestial

Weapons Mastery

These are concepts that exist in the setting of Mystara that I have adapted to 5th edition and expanded. Here are all the options available to the character and when they kick in.

  • Elf Weapon Training (Sunfey) Proficiency with Longsword, Shortsword, Shortbow and Longbow or four proficiencies of your choice with GM permission.

Secret Crafts

Secret Craft Options available to the character.

  • (1st) Initiate – Elvenologist
  • (2nd) Initiate – Dragonologist (Chromatic Red)
  • (3rd) Initiate – Diplomatologist
  • (4th) Initiate – Cryptologist
  • (5th) Initiate – Celestologist
  • (6th)

Spell Lists

As a warlock, all secret craft spells become Warlock spells, and secret craft rituals become warlock rituals.

House Rule – In my setting, Sorcerers learn 1 cantrip for each Tier that they have achieved (a tier is every 5 character levels) with 3 extra cantrips at first level. Cantrips can come from the secret crafts they have learnt.

Abilities
  • Arcane Empathy (Level Up – Elven) Your sensitivity to the low of magic lets you speak to the hearts of others. You have limited ability to communicate telepathically with those within 30ft of you. Though this grants the target no ability to respond telepathically, they can understand you as long as you share a language with them.
  • Court Functionary (Background) Your knowledge of how bureaucracies function lets you gain access to the records and inner workings of any noble court or government you encounter. You know who the movers and shakers are, whom to go to for the favours you seek, and what the current intrigues of interest in the group are.
  • Cunning Diplomat (Sunfey) You can always use Intelligence, when making a Deception, Insight, Intimidation or Persuasion check.
  • Darkvision (Elven) you can see in dim light within 60 ft as it was bright light, and darkness as if it was dim light. You can’t discern colour in darkness, only shades of grey.
  • Fey Ancestry (Elven) Advantage on saving throws against being charmed, gaining an expertise dice, and magic can’t put you to sleep.
  • Guild Business (Background) While in a city or town, you can maintain a moderate lifestyle by plying your trade. Furthermore, the guild occasionally informs you of jobs that need doing. Completing such a job might require performing a downtime activity, or it might require a full adventure. The guild provides a modest reward if you’re successful.
  • Radiant Soul (Celestial) – Your link to the celestial allows you to serve as a conduit for radiant energy. You have resistance to radiant damage, and when you cast a spell that does radiant or fire damage, you can add your Charisma modifier to one roll of damage for that spell affecting a chosen target.
