I want more sorcerers who got their powers from beings who consider the sorcerers they make as their children

PlasticiTea

I second this notion.


PlasticiTea

Goes for warlocks, too!


VanillaMystic

My Archfey lock was that way. Matron tricked his parents into the pact in order to conceive, so she's now a flighty, jealous, overbearing Archfey who claims to be his mother. Doesn't usually end well for any romantic interests he develops.


Blade_Henge

You’d love part of my campaign then. Blue Draconic Sorceror NPC but now he’s constantly followed by an adult Silver Dragon that’s become the ‘friend of your parents’ non-blood related aunt since he was adopted by a famous silver dragonborn Wizard.


AeratheAngelic

My aberrant mind sorcerer is the host of an aboleths spawn that she will become, so she both is and isn't the child.


NotSoSubtle1247

And Aberrant Mind is dope as fuck to play. That spell list and 6th level ability feel like hitting a 4th gear as a Sorcerer.

There's a Protector Aasimar Cleric Fighter in my game whose Goddess actually gave birth to the PC via Athena-section, and she wastes absolutely no time being a wonderfully affectionate mom who happily gives her kid and their friends trail snacks and travelling ale, as well as blessing any steeds with a Boon of Protection (I bribe the DM with pizza so none of our steeds die, they just run away from combat and danger.)


Killer-Of-Spades

What accent does the DM use for the goddess? I'm imagining a Minnesota accent!


USSChucklefucker

Nah, pure New Orleans Southern Belle. The trail snacks are usually bread bowls heaped high with spicy gumbo and jambalaya. The trail ale is usually sweat tea halved with lemon moonshine.


Killer-Of-Spades

Is your Cleric/Fighter's spells flavored to be like New Orleans stuff? Like, cold damage are made to be like daiquiris? When using religion related spells, they sound like a Southern reverend?


USSChucklefucker

Not really, but the PC is from a New Orleans of the world, so like, they do throw daiquiris and preach like they're a brimstone and fire evangelist when they're talking to a crowd. Don't piss her off and you won't have a random drink thrown at your face and crotch.


Killer-Of-Spades

I'm from New Orleans too, and this sounds so fun!


USSChucklefucker

It's really fun. So long as you aren't on the receiving end.


Killer-Of-Spades

What Domain are they?


USSChucklefucker

War Cleric and Champion Fighter.


Killer-Of-Spades

I'm trying to imagine a War god as a Southern Belle mom and I LOVE IT!


Killer-Of-Spades

May I suggest adding to her backstory that she is a former Light cleric, but the temple was actually ruining her life! ([Definitely not my inspiration](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uS90B4sZf7U))


DreadDiana

Idea: Abberant bloodline sorcerer who's ancestor is a Beholder. The child is pretty much the sole exception to their omnidirectional bigotry, and they're a constantly first time parent who is trying really hard to be a positive presence in their life.


Killer-Of-Spades

Are beholders really bigots if its towards everyone that isn't themselves?


Al3jandr0

Yes.


Killer-Of-Spades

I'm pretty sure it just falls under the highest form of narcissism mixed with paranoia


Al3jandr0

Those are two of the most important ingredients for bigotry. I'd argue that all of those things describe a "typical" beholder.


Killer-Of-Spades

Bigotry has to do with one group versus others. Beholders value themselves over literally everything, including other Beholders.


Al3jandr0

"Anyone else" is a group. You can absolutely be bigoted against everyone who's not yourself. I get that it's not specific to race or anything like that, but I don't think that precludes it from being described as bigotry.


_deDRAGON_

Have you read [Katalepsis](https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/28023/katalepsis)?


Lialda_dayfire

Fuck yes, my favorite web serial right now


_deDRAGON_

Huh, hello there, that's the first time I've met someone who have read it.


Lialda_dayfire

Same here lol


The_Sacred_Cactus

No? Should I have?


_deDRAGON_

Main character there could be described as an aberrant mind sorcerer. If you like fiction with eldritch horrors, great characters, character development, humor and magic system that doesn't contradict itself every five minutes you can give it a read.


The_Sacred_Cactus

Why thank you good sir. Don't mind if I do then. I wish you pleasant day.


PotentialNobody

Well, my tiefling warlock turned sorcerer/wizard old patron turned out to be her father lol. Joked about him being the bad influence parent during her upbringing and that turned out to he absolutely true I guess


Garreousbear

I have an idea of an aborrant mind sorlock whose patron is literally also his estranged father.


thehalfbloodmormon

Isn't that warlock with more steps?
