This is an original Cleric domain for 5A.

Cold is the ultimate power. It ruled supreme before the sun first rose and shall rule supreme over the quiet and peaceful world at the end of time. Clerics of cold live wintry lives, spreading cold or appeasing it.

Greyhawk Made famous by the Vatun-worshiping Suel of the north, other arctic people such as the Chakji and Flan also worship the power of the cold winter night, mostly to appease it.

Bonus Proficiencies

When you choose this domain at 1st level, you gain proficiency with Athletics, Nature, or Survival, your choice of which.

Arctic Survivor

At 1st level, you gain resistance to cold damage. When you cast a spell of 1st level or higher that deals cold damage or grants resistance to cold, you gain temporary hit points equal to three times the level of the spell. Temporary hit points do not stack, use only the highest of your new and old temporary hit points.

Channel Divinity: Hoarfrost

Starting at 2nd level, you can use Channel Divinity to cover the ground around you with frost.

As an action, you use channel divinity to create an aura of frost within 30 feet of you that moves with you and lasts for 1 minute. This area counts as difficult ground to your enemies. This applies to all forms of movement. Allies can move normally in the area.

World of Cold

At 6th level you can move across difficult terrain created by ice or snow without spending extra movement. When you inflict acid, fire, lightning, necrotic, radiant, or thunder, damage, you can change the damage type to cold.

Blessed Strikes

When you reach 8th level, you are blessed with divine might in battle. When a creature takes damage from one of your cantrips or weapon attacks, you can also deal 1d8 radiant damage to that creature. Once you deal this damage, you can't use this feature again until the start of your next turn.

Weird of the Wendigo

Starting at 17th level, you can channel energy to turn yourself into an avatar of winter.

Use channel energy as an action to cast Investiture of Ice. This version of the spell does not require concentration.
