So I created this subclass for the Warlock a while ago when I was playing Curse of Strahd with my group. Never really cared to put it on DMs Guild or anything, because it’s not that big of a thing, but I thought why not share it with you guys. Maybe you’ll have some fun trying it out or simply giving your opinion on it.
Origin (marked the spoiler for the adventure):
Drizlash is one of the Vestiges trapped in the Amber Temple who would, as written, give the PCs only the ability to spider-walk around.
Because one of my players wanted to multiclass into Warlock I thought it would be nice to offer him the opportunity to acquire a special Otherworldly Patron. I was also eager to create my own content at that time, so this fitted perfectly.
Mechanically, this patron basically makes you Spider-Man. You can climb on walls, shoot webs to hinder enemies and prevent a fall, inflict paralyzing poison and even gain the ability to see and travel to the Ethereal Plane like a Phase Spider.
Naturally, you also gain an expended spell list, which includes thematically fitting spells.
I bet you nerds can easily find out why this is almost, but not PHB legal, can you?
So here she is, Drizlash, the Nine-Eyed Spider (1.6 MB)
