Loa Prisoner

At some point in time, you became the captive of a Loa, a creature of near god-like power. The being may have captured you for sadistic purposes, or perhaps its attitude was obsessive. Nonetheless, the character was held as the creature’s prisoner long enough to have suffered effects from the imprisonment.

Feature, Supernatural Familiarity:

Escaping from the Loa required that the character conquer their fear of the unknown and become familiar with the world of the supernatural. The character must choose the nature of his or her Loa warden (Primordial, Aberrant, Celestial, Infernal, or Abyssal) . When the character has combat advantage over such creatures (or when those creatures have combat disadvantage over the character), the character has advantage on their saving throws against those creature’s spell or spell-like effects. Moreover, characters gain advantage on any arcane or religion checks when dealing with such types of creatures.

Feature, Supernatural Hunt:

The Loa still wants the character as their prisoner. It, he, or she is not happy about you leaving and will exert its power to bring the character back. The Loa may have a lot of power in its limited area (its demesne usually), or it may have a little power that it can exert over an extended area (often through a network of followers). Remember, a Loa is like a god, but it isn’t raitional or particularly human in its thinking. It might be Cthulhian. It might be more like the Mad Hatter. Either way, it’s method of hunting the character down will not be straightforward or predictable.
