Cleric: Love Domain

Love Domain

Nearly every pantheon has a god or a goddess devoted to the concept of love. Examples include Aphrodite, Freya, Hathor, and Sune. Like their divine patrons, clerics of the love domain are often torn between the desire to find, cherish, and protect the a single beloved and the craving for lust, passion, intrigue, and the search for a new object of their attentions. 

Love Domain Spells

Cleric Level
Charm person, compelled duel
Calm emotion, suggestion
Beacon of hope, tongues
Compulsion, locate creature
Dominate Person, dream

Shape of the Heart
When you choose this domain at 1st level, you have the choice between one of the two options below: 

Unparalleled Beauty. You gain proficiency with the Persuasion skill, and while you are not wearing armor or using a shield, your Armor Class equals 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Charisma modifier.

Soldier of Love. You gain proficiency with heavy armor and martial weapons.

Blessing of Love
Also at 1st level, your blinding beauty or determined presence can cause attackers to doubt their resolve to strike you. When you are attacked by a creature within 30 feet of you that you can see, you can use your reaction to impose disadvantage on the attack roll. An attacker that can’t be charmed is immune to this feature.

You can use this feature a number of times equal to your Charisma modifier (a minimum of once). You regain all expended uses when you finish a long rest.

Channel Divinity: Cupid’s Arrow
Starting at 2nd level, you can use your Channel Divinity as an action to cause Cupid’s arrow to prick a creature within 30 feet that you can see. That creature must make a Wisdom saving throw.  If the save fails, that creature becomes charmed by another creature of your choice within 60 feet of you. Both creatures must be a humanoid, celestial, dragon, fey, fiend, or giant. The creature is allowed to repeat the save each hour. On a successful save, the effect ends. Otherwise, the effect lasts so long as the target’s desire remains unfulfilled or until you use this class feature again.

Channel Divinity: Guardian of the Heart
Beginning at 6th level, you can Channel Divinity as a reaction when an enemy that you can see makes a melee attack against one of your allies within 30 feet. You use your reaction before the enemy makes its attack roll. The attacker must make a Strength saving throw or be pushed back 15 feet, landing prone, and its attack misses.

Improved Shape of the Heart
Starting at 8th level,  you gain the feature described below associated with the Shape of the Heart ability you chose at 1st level.

Unparalleled Beauty: You may add your Charisma modifier to the damage you deal with any cleric cantrip.

Soldier of Love: 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 psychic damage to the target. When you reach 14th level, the extra damage increases to 2d8.

Protected By Love
At 17th level, when you are subject to a weapon or spell attack that affects only you, you can use your reaction to switch places with any adjacent creature have you charmed. The charmed creature becomes the target of the attack.

Alternatively, when one of your allies is attacked and within 5 feet of you, you may use your reaction action to switch spaces with that ally. You then become the target of the attack.
