The Wager: Warlock Patron (5e)


One night, perhaps you found yourself on a crossroad at midnight, and a well-dressed gentleman offered you untold riches, if only you play a little game. You knew this man was not quite human, but the temptation was too much, and you accepted.

Congratulations! You are now the victim and/or beneficiary of The Wager. A new type of Warlock Patron that seeks to gather followers not by making a pact, but by tricking Warlocks into giving up their souls in dark bargains. You still have access to all the power and prestige of a Warlock, but your powers are at your Patron's whim even more than usual, and when you die, your soul is forfeit.

The Wager is a Warlock Patron for players who wish that Warlocks had a more harrowing relationship with their Patrons. It features a Borrowed Time system where your tricky Patron can cause Wild Magic Surge-like effects on you, but if you appease your patron well, you can learn to control the arrival and appearance of these effects.

Included in this document:

  • A New type of Patron: The Wager
  • A New Pact Boon for all Warlock types, The Pact of the Siren, for if you met your Patron when he went down to Georgia looking for a soul to steal.
  • 4 new Eldritch Invocations to go with the Pact of the Siren
  • 1 new Eldritch Invocation for all Warlocks, to possibly make the class rely less on Eldritch Blast spam.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
