Coven of the Servant is a witchblade coven of the Witchblade class.

The Coven of the Servant is actually composed of many different smaller, unique covens, each serving a different patron, but with equal fervor and dedication. Each Servant Initiate has their own story as to how they formed their pact, and what makes them different from their patron's Warlocks.

Eldritch Invocations

At 3rd level, you learn an Eldritch Invocation of your choice from the Warlock's list. You learn another Invocation of your choice from the list at 7th, 10th, 15th and 18th levels. 

Patron's Gift

At 7th level, your patron gives you access to more powerful magic than normal. You learn a single Metamagic option from the Sorcerer's list. Upon casting a Witchblade spell, you can apply that Metamagic option onto that spell. Once you use this ability, you cannot do so again until you finish a long rest. 

Pact Boon

At 7th level, you gain one of the following Pact Boons of your choice.

  • Pact of the Blade: You can use your action to create a pact weapon in your empty hand. You can choose the form that this melee weapon takes each time you create it. You are proficient with it while you wield it. This weapon counts as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage, and can be bonded to using your Bladebond class ability.
Your pact weapon 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 weapon (no action required), or if you die.
You can transform one magic weapon into your pact weapon by performing a special ritual while you hold the weapon. You perform the ritual over the course of 1 hour, which can be done during a short rest.
You can then dismiss the weapon, shunting it into an extradimensional space, and it appears whenever you create your pact weapon thereafter. You can't affect an artifact or a sentient weapon in this way. The weapon ceases being your pact weapon if you die, if you perform the 1-hour ritual on a different weapon, or if you use a 1-hour ritual to break your bond to it. The weapon appears at your feet if it is in the extradimensional space when the bond breaks.
  • Pact of the Tome: Your patron gives you a grimoire called a Book of Shadows. When you gain this feature, choose three cantrips from any class's spell list. While the book is on your person, you can cast those cantrips at will. They are considered Witchblade spells for you, and they needn't be from the same spell list. They don't count against your number of cantrips known.
If you lose your Book of Shadows, you can perform a 1-hour ceremony to receive a replacement from your patron. This ceremony can be performed during a short or long rest, and it destroys the previous book. The book turns to ash when you die.
  • Pact of the Chain: You learn the Find Familiar spell, and can cast it as a ritual. The spell doesn't count against your number of spells known or prepared, and counts as always prepared for you.
When you cast the spell, you can choose one of the normal forms for your familiar, or one of the following special forms: imp, pseudodragon, quasit, or sprite.
Additionally, when you take the Attack action, you can forgo one of your own attacks to allow your familiar to use its reaction to make one attack of its own.
If you chose The Seeker as your Patron, you may also choose the following Boon in place of the choices above:
  • Pact of the Star Chain: The Seeker grants you a chain forged from starlight, decorated with seven gleaming motes of brightness. While the chain is on your person, you know the Augury spell, and can cast it as a ritual. The spell doesn’t count against your number of spells known or prepared, and is considered always prepared for you.
Additionally, you can invoke the Seeker’s power to gain advantage on an Intelligence check while you carry this item. Once you use this ability, you cannot use it again until you complete a short or long rest.
If you lose your Star Chain, you can perform a 1-hour ceremony to receive a replacement from the Seeker. The ceremony can be performed during a short or long rest, and it destroys the previous chain. The chain disappears in a flash of light when you die. 

Patron's Blessing

At 10th level, you learn an additional Cunning Trick or metamagic Option of your choice, and you gain an additional use of your Patron's Gift. You regain all expended uses when you finish a long rest.

Finally, you can choose one Cunning Trick you know. You can use that Cunning Trick without expending Blood Points, but must finish a long rest before you can do so again. 

Mystic Arcanum

At 15th level, your patron bestows upon you a magical secret called an Arcanum. Choose one 6th-level spell from the Warlock spell list as this Arcanum. At 18th level, you choose a 7th-level Warlock spell as your second Arcanum.

You can cast your Arcanum spells once each, without expending any Blood Points. You regain all uses of your Arcanum spells at the end of a long rest. 

Patron's Champion

At 18th level, you learn an additional Cunning Trick or Metamagic Option of your choice, and you gain an additional use of your Patron's Gift, to a total of 3 uses. Finally, when you use Patron's Gift, until the end of your next turn, your Cunning Tricks cost no Blood Points.
