The Domain of Relthea – a new cleric domain for D&D/Freeya

Relthea, Goddess of the First Circle, Lady of Love and Hatred, Daughter of Fire and Water

Love can make us desperate. Why else would we pray to Relthea the Slaughter?

Relthea has control over the most extreme feelings we are capable of. In this hope, people pray to the Lady of Love to change the heart of our desire. However there is a reason why Relthea is called the Slaughter. Because most of the time these prayers turn into a bloody mess.

Her rivalry with Tharn on the battlefield is well know. In war times, while honor should rule the heart of men, Relthea’s hatred will creep in and will transform the battlefield into a slaugther house.

Bonus Proficiency
Also at 1st level, you gain proficiency with martial weapons.

Channel Divinity: Relthea’s Sweet Embrace
At the 2nd level, you can use your Channel Divinity to summon Relthea’s ferocity into yourself. When you roll slashing or psychic damage, you can use your Channel Divinity to deal maximum damage instead of rolling.

Extra Attack
At the 6th level, you can attack twice, instead of once, whenever you take the Attack action on your turn.

Divine Strike
At 8th level, you gain the ability to infuse your weapon strikes with divine energy. Once on each of your turns when you hit a creature with a weapon attack, you can cause the attack to deal an extra 1d8 slashing damage to the target. When you reach the 14th level, the extra damage increases to 2d8.

Flower Blade
Starting at the 17th level, you can use a flower and slashing weapon of your choice to perform an hour long binding ritual. Once the ritual is finished the flower and the weapon disappear.
Whenever you hold a flower of the type you used for this ritual you may transform the flower into your bound weapon as a bonus action. The weapon has the all characteristics of the weapon originally used for this ritual and in addition it ignores all forms of resistances and immunities. When the weapon leaves your hand, it transforms back into a flower.
If you perform the ritual again after already having a bound flower blade, the previously bound objects reappear at the location you performed the previous ritual.
