    Default [5e Warlock Option] Pact of the Chicken

    Pact of the Chicken
    You can use a bonus action to conjure a live chicken in your empty hand. You can choose the form that this chicken takes each time you create it. You are proficient with it while you wield it. This chicken counts as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage. For the purpose of using this chicken as a weapon, the chicken counts as a dart, though it deals bludgeoning damage instead of piercing.

    Your pact chicken disappears if it is more than 5 feet away from you for 1 minute or more. It also disappears if you use this feature again, if you dismiss the chicken (no action required), or if you die.

    As part of an action used to cast a spell, you may choose to deliver that spell through the chicken. You must make a ranged weapon attack using the chicken. If the spell usually requires a spell spell attack, this replaces that. If the spell requires the target to make a save to avoid its effects however, this roll must be done separately and only if the chicken does not miss. This chickenís damage is adjudicated before the spellís effect. If the spell is an area effect spell, its effect is centered on where the chicken lands. If spell ordinarily allows for multiple targets, such as eldritch blast, you may conjure and throw additional chickens as part of the action. Functionally, this replaces any non-self spellís range with that of the chicken, applying range increment penalties as normal for a ranged weapon.

    If you select the Hexblade patron, you may use Hex Warrior with your chickens. You need only perform the ritual with a chicken for it to apply to all chickens you conjure for the duration.



    Brood of Familiars
    Prerequisite: Pact of the Chicken
    You can cast Flock of Familiars at will, without expending a spell slot. These familiars take the form of chickens.

    Enduring Poultry
    Prerequisite: Pact of the Chicken
    After throwing a chicken, the chicken survives the impact and functions for you as a familiar for 1 hour, until the chicken dies, or until you conjure a new chicken to throw.

    Improved Poultry
    Prerequisite: Pact of the Chicken
    When you conjure a chicken, it gains a +1 bonus to its attack and damage rolls.

    Good Nugget
    Prerequisite: Pact of the Chicken
    You can cast Good Berry at will, without expending a spell slot. Instead of conjuring berries, you conjure small pieces of chicken. Once you have used this you cannot do so again until you take a long or short rest.

    Rubber Chicken
    Prerequisite: Pact of the Chicken
    When you conjure a chicken, you may choose for it to take the form of a rubber chicken. Attacks made using the rubber chicken do not deal bludgeoning damage but instead deals its damage a psychic damage.

    Superior Poultry
    Prerequisite: 9th level, Pact of the Chicken
    When you conjure a chicken, it gains a +2 bonus on its attack and damage rolls.

    Ultimate Poultry
    Prerequisite: 15th level, Pact of the Chicken
    When you conjure a chicken, it gains a +3 bonus on its attack and damage rolls.

    Based on the Poultrimancer, brought to life for a one-shot I took part in, and tested for everyone's amusement.

    Needs chicken-related invocations.

    What about a chicken patron? With Chicken Little as the messiah, warning nonbelievers about the end of days when the sky falls?

    A chicken does not give gifts, a chicken IS the gift.

    The damage column shows total damage output on hit over an entire round, and is modified based on factors like recharge, AoE etc.

    At-will Goodberry is at-will healing, so I'd recommend changing that. Other than that, it looks fine.

    An excellent point, no matter how small the amount is. So, I've made it so it can be used 1/rest.
