Welcome to Midgard: Beer Domain

Welcome to Midgard: Beer Domain

Welcome, friend, to the world of Midgard. Maybe you’re brand new to this world. Or maybe you’ve been around since the beginning. Either way, stay—all are welcome! Please, sit and listen to the tales. You see, the world has been changing, and oh, the sights to see. It’s a living, evolving realm where things happen after all. So why shouldn’t it have a life all it’s own? Where to start…

[From the Midgard Heroes Handbook…]


The heady brew of fortitude, courage, and companionship is your nectar, and you share its blessings with those who need it.


Cleric Level Spells
1 comprehend languages, heroism
3 blur, suggestion
5 aura of vitality, hypnotic pattern
7 confusion, resilient sphere
9 dream, modify memory


At 1st level, you learn the message cantrip. You also gain proficiency in either Insight or Medicine (your choice), and you gain proficiency with brewer’s supplies. Your proficiency bonus is doubled for any ability check you make that uses those supplies.


Starting at 2nd level, you can use your Channel Divinity to transform a container of nonmagical liquid into blessed brew; the number of doses equals 3 + your Wisdom modifier. Any special attributes the liquid previously had are negated. Anyone who imbibes one dose of this brew can choose one of the following benefits: advantage on Charisma-based skill checks, a +1 bonus to AC, or a +1 increase to the DC of saving throws against their castings of enchantment spells. This bonus lasts for 1 hour, leaving a warm buzz behind when it fades. A creature can benefit from only one dose of blessed brew between rests. An hour after creating blessed brew, the liquid turns into tasty, but mundane, beer.


Starting at 6th level, you can use your Channel Divinity to aid and rally your allies. All friendly creatures within 30 feet of you who are frightened, paralyzed, poisoned, or stunned gain an immediate saving throw with advantage to remove the effect. Creatures that succeed on the saving throw also heal 2d6 hit points.


At 8th level, you gain the ability to infuse your weapon strikes with radiant 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 radiant damage to the target. When you reach 14th level, the extra damage increases to 2d8.


At 17th level, you gain resistance to cold, poison, and psychic damage.


But this is where we must stop for now, my friend. My mind, it wanders so at times. Do come see me again, though, for more of the wonders and surprises of Midgard. (OGL)

You can continue on this adventure in the Midgard Worldbook and Midgard Heroes Handbook.

  1. Divine Strike should be named “Drunken Swing” or some such.

    With a caveat that the ability counts as divine strike for the purpose of game mechanics/multiclassing/etc.

    1. The thing is, that’s the naming standard across domains that WotC set, with the exception of the Light domain. I certainly wouldn’t have been opposed to naming it something else, though.

  2. I think a different level 6 ability would be good. as it is channel divinity is crowded. Otherwise, I love it.

    1. It’s consistent with the Trickery, War, and Knowledge domains from the PHB, and we do our best to stick with the standards WotC sets, but I could’ve gone for parity with other domains instead. So, fair enough!:) Glad you like it otherwise!

  3. I don’t play in Midgard, but I loved this build so much I created a new god in my campaign specifically so I could have these priests running around. Thank you!

  4. none of the Channel Divinity abilities say if you use an Action, Bonus Action or Reaction to trigger their use.

    otherwise, i love it!

  5. Blessed Brew looks hilariously fun- no limit on volume, so you can go ahead and turn a vat of acid you’re being lowered into, a tank full of hungry sharks, or a cauldron of boiling oil into beer.

  6. So I may be playing a beer domain cleric. I love it but have a question – how does divine strike fit the concept?
