5e Warlock Subclass Otherworldly Patron : The Spelljammer

Otherworldly Patron: The Spelljammer

The Spelljammer is a sentient living ship that is large enough to carry an entire city resting atop its gliding manta pectoral fins. The Spelljammer gives birth to Smalljammers and seeds the cosmos with Ultimate Helms. The spelljammer’s mind and its desires are alien to the whims of mortals. Some believe it is a god-like being or that a god will be born from it someday. The living creatures that live on the Spelljammer never leave. The Spelljammer can sense life wherever it travels and seeks out powerful beings to protect itself.

The Spelljammer travels across the stars using its own sentience to propel it across the vastness of the material plane and beyond. The living beings within the ship have developed an insatiable thirst for knowledge of the Spheres and the realms.

Within the last 700 years The Spelljammer has been granting magical power to those it finds worthy. Instead of waiting for a Captain to take their place the Spelljammer would cultivate the most worthy by creating the Pact of the Helm. As the Warlock grows in power so does the The Helm and the Warlocks bond to The Spelljammer.
