The latest UNEARTHED ARCANA update gives us new Sorcerer and Warlock subclasses for playtesting.
SORCERER AND WARLOCK
Two classes, the sorcerer and the warlock, discover new playtest possibilities this week. The sorcerer receives a new Sorcerous Origin feature: the Aberrant Mind. Meanwhile, the warlock gains a new Otherworldly Patron feature: the Lurker in the Deep. We’ve also included a new cantrip: mind sliver.
We invite you to give these subclasses a look, try them in play, and let us know what you think in an upcoming survey on this website.
From the new material:
Sorcerous Origin At 1st level, a sorcerer gains the Sorcerous Origin feature. Here is a playtest option for that feature: Aberrant Mind. Aberrant Mind An alien influence has wrapped its tendrils around you, warping you in both body and mind. Perhaps a psychic splinter lodged in your psyche after you suffered domination by an aboleth. Maybe you were born somewhere tainted by the Far Realm, a planar blot that changed you forever. Or perhaps mind flayers kidnapped you, subjecting you to the nightmarish process of ceremorphosis—but the transformation failed and left you altered.
The Lurker in the Deep You made a pact with an entity that lurks somewhere deep in the ocean, or even on the Elemental Plane of Water, such as a mighty kraken, an ancient primordial, or a monstrous being from creation’s earliest days. You serve as this creature’s eyes and ears, watching the world beyond its domain and reporting your findings. You may have gained this pact as a member of a cult dedicated to the entity or after your patron saved your life when you nearly drowned at sea.
