One of my players thought it would be cool if there was a warlock version of the Child of the Atom sorcerer – a warlock built around radiation, mutation, and nuclear power.  Inspired after the party met some salt dryads (stolen directly from Deep Carbon Observatory) who,  while chatting to the party, told them they […]
