Sorcerous Origin: Norn

As the norns reweave a mortal’s fate, traces of their manipulation may alter the destiny of that mortal’s descendants. Though few mortals claim actual descent from the norn, these manipulations can give rise a fey bloodline. Norn influence often shows itself in fair hair and skin hues, growing ever paler as the bloodline asserts its power. You glimpsed visions of possible futures from an early age, making you seem cryptic and odd to those not similarly afflicted.


The wheel of fate turns favorably for you. Any time you or another creature would roll a d4 and apply the result to an attack roll, ability check, or saving throw that you make, the die is rolled twice and you may choose either result.

Shift Fate

At 1st level, when another creature you can see makes a saving throw, you can use your reaction to grant that creature advantage on the saving throw. You can do so after the creature rolls but before any effects of the roll occur.

Once you do so, you must finish a long rest before you can use this feature again.

Pluck the Threads

Starting at 6th level, you can subtly manipulate the destinies of those around you.

You can use your action and spend 2 sorcery points to roll a 1d4 and apply the number rolled as a bonus or penalty (your choice) to your next attack roll, saving throw, or ability check. You then apply this same number as a bonus or penalty (the opposite of your first choice) to the next attack roll, saving throw, or ability check made by a creature you can see.

Heart of Winter

At 14th level, your blood chills in your veins. You gain resistance to cold and fire damage.

Fated Soul

At 18th level, you become immune to cold damage.

Additionally, you can manifest and cut short the thread binding a creature’s fate. As an action, you may spend 5 sorcery points to force a creature you can see to make a Constitution saving throw against your sorcerer spell save DC. On a failed save, the creature takes 20d6 damage. On a successful save, the creature takes half as much damage.

This damage can’t be reduced in any way and, in addition, a creature who is killed from this damage can be restored to life only by means of a wish spell or divine intervention.
