Spiritual patrons of moons tend to be associated with night, transformation, and illusions. The clerics of most lunar patrons take an antagonistic role to these forces, battling shapeshifters and guiding their people like a light in darkness.

These patron’s clerics are beloved as protectors by many people. A few evil lunar patrons create new shapechangers and undead creatures. The clerics of these evil patrons are treated with distrust and outright fear in most areas that know of them.

Follower of the Moons

At 1st level, your connection with moonlight and the starry sky allows you to see in dim light within 60 feet of you as if it were bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light. Unlike most darkvision, you can see color in darkness while you are under moonlight.

In addition, as an action you can raise your holy symbol and choose an allied creature within 60 feet of you that you can see.

For the next minute, that creature can see normally in darkness, both magical and nonmagical to a distance of 120 feet. Once you use this feature you cannot do so again until you finish a short or long rest.

Bonus Proficiency

Also at 1st level, you gain proficiency with martial weapons and heavy armor (or Skilled Defense).

Channel Divinity: moon blade

Starting at 2nd level, you can use your Channel Divinity to create a blade of moonlight in your hand.

As a bonus action, you present your holy symbol and extend a free hand, and a magical blade of moonlight emerges from that hand. The moon blade lasts up to 1 hour and has the stats of a longsword that can deal either slashing or radiant damage on hit (your choice). It also casts bright light for 5 feet, and dim light for 15 feet. You choose the color of the blade, and the light it casts.

The blade is a magical weapon that gains a bonus to hit and to its damage rolls equal to half your proficiency bonus, rounded down. In addition, you have advantage on melee weapon attacks with the moon blade against undead creatures and shapechangers.

If the blade leaves your hand, it dissipates at the end of the round. At any time during the 1 hour duration if you do not have a moon blade currently in your hand, you can use a bonus action to create a moon blade in your hand.

Channel Divinity: Veil of Illusion

Starting at 6th level, you can use your Channel Divinity to create a veil of moonlight that extends from you and grants your allies invisibility from the perspective of anyone outside the veil.

As an action, you present your holy symbol, and a shimmering veil of light surrounds you in a 15-foot radius for 1 minute. Any number of creatures or objects of your choice inside the veil become invisible to any creature outside the veil. A creature inside the veil can see all the invisible creatures and objects normally. The radius moves with you.

Divine Strike

At 8th level, 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 radiant damage to the target. When you reach 14th level, the extra damage increases to 2d8.

Moon’s Reflection

Starting at 17th level, whenever you are targeted by a line spell, or a spell that requires a ranged attack roll, you can use your reaction to attempt to reflect the spell back at its caster. When you do so, make an ability check using your spellcasting ability. The DC equals 10 + the spell’s level. On a success, the creature’s spell effect is reflected back at the caster as though it originated from yourself, turning the caster into the target. Once you use this feature, you cannot do so again until you finish a long rest.
