Cleric Subclass: Love Domain

Suggested Price $0.75


You have focused your priestly duties to becoming a champion of love. You protect the concept of true love, and do everything in your power to preserve love between people. Whether you use love to curse people into becoming heartbroken, or you use it to bless people with joyful lives, love makes you one of the world’s most dangerous forces.


Love Hurts

When you choose this domain at 1st level, you gain the Friends cantrip if you don’t already know it. This cantrip doesn’t count against the number of cleric cantrips you know. Additionally, you can cast this spell at a range of touch.

However, any creature you cast Friends on (excluding yourself), receives an amount of Psychic damage equal to your Proficiency Bonus when the spell ends.


Also at 1st level, you naturally generate an aura of divine love. This functions as the Sanctuary spell with the following changes:

  • The aura is considered active until you take damage for the first time after taking a long rest.
  • The aura regenerates after successfully completing a long rest.

Channel Divinity: Love Arrow

Starting at 2nd level, you can use your Channel Divinity to conjure up a magical arrow. This arrow can be fired from any bow at a range of 120 feet as an Action.

A creature targeted by this arrow must succeed on a Wisdom saving throw against your Spell Save DC. A creature that fails its saving throw becomes infatuated with a creature within 60 feet of it of your choice, gaining the Charmed condition.

A creature can repeat its saving throw at the start of its turn after taking damage, ending the effects on a success. The effects end 24 hours after being targeted.

Baneful Butterflies

Starting at 6th level, you can cause your enemies to feel a sense of butterflies in the pit of their stomach that makes it difficult to concentrate. You can use your Reaction to target a creature within 60 feet of you, imposing disadvantage on their Concentration checks.

You can use this feature a number of times equal to 1 + your Wisdom modifier (minimum 1), and regain all uses of this feature at Dawn.

Heartbreaking Smite

Starting at 8th level, your strikes can leave your enemies feeling brokenhearted. When you hit a creature with a melee weapon attack, you can expend one spell slot to deal Psychic damage to the target, in addition to the weapon’s damage. The extra damage is 2d8 for a 1st-level spell slot, plus 1d8 for each Spell Level higher than 1st.

Soul Bond

Starting at 17th level, you can use your action to create a lifelong bond between at least two people. You can cast the Soul Bond ritual, which takes 2 hours to complete. You can select a number of targets at a range of touch equal to your Wisdom modifier (minimum 2).

When a creature is within 30 feet of a Soul Bonded partner, they receive the following benefits.

  • They receive a +1 bonus to all skill checks.
  • They receive advantage on skills checks made to improve relations with their Soul Bonded partner.
  • They receive a +1 bonus to their Armor Class.

A creature cannot receive new Soul Bond partners without first having the effects of the Soul Bond removed via a 1 hour ritual.

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.
