Does anyone have a 5e Gluttony cleric domain I can use? I am trying to make the Seven Deadly Sins deities, and so far I have had no luck finding a 5e gluttony domain.

It's not "Rouge"... That's makeup.
You could probably come up with something homebrewed relatively easily, such as (off the top of my head):

Level 1: Gain bite attack doing 1d6+STR (or maybe +WIS?), plus Martial Weapon proficiency. Bite Attack usable as a Bonus Action WISMOD times per day. You also gain proficiency with Cook's Utensils.

Level 2: Channel Divinity - Predatory Gourmet: Sets one tasty-looking enemy as target of your gluttonous hunger for 1 min. Once per round, when you deal damage to that target, you gain dice worth of HP or Temp HP. If you hit with your bite attack, you gain additional WISMOD HP/Temp HP. Increase the dice at higher levels?

Level 6: Ravening: 1x per Short Rest (or perhaps 2x per Long Rest), you can inflict debilitating hunger on any creatures of your choice that you can see within a 30 foot radius. They must make a CON saving throw or suffer dice+level (or dice increasing with level) worth of poison/necrotic damage and 2 levels of Exhaustion. A successful saving throw halves the damage and they only suffer 1 level of Exhaustion. Constructs and others that don't/can't eat are immune (to the Exhaustion at least).

Also at Level 6, your bite attack now counts as a Magical Weapon for purposes of bypassing resistance/immunity.

Level 8: Divine Strike: One weapon attack per turn does +1d8 Necrotic damage, increasing to +2d8 at Level 14.

Level ??: Iron Stomach: You are now immune to Poison and Disease.

Level 17: ???? Some ability to to turn you into a powerful dervish of biting and chewing for a short period per day. (Seriously... who plays Tier 4?)


Domain Spells:
1: Goodberry, Inflict Wounds
2: Locate Animals or Plants, Ray of Enfeeblement
3: Hunger of Hadar, Create Food and Water
4: Blight, Sickening Radiance
5: Contagion, Enervation

Level 8: Divine Strike: Each weapon attack does +1d8 Necrotic damage, increasing to +2d8 at Level 14.

Thanks for this domain of gluttony. Also, not only do people play Tier 4, there should be a Tier 5. Levels 21-25 should be developed officially by D&D, and put out in some sort of handbook. Let's make it happen.

The amount of people who play Tier 4 (outside of one shots) is quite small compared to the whole player base. It may not have enough of an audience to attract WotC - there are plenty of things such as settings that a large chunk of the player base are clamoring for that would have better sales.

That said, there are plenty of talented designers putting things up on DMsguild. Why not look around for Tier 5 expansions there.

I have seen those from DM's Guild, but I want something official from WOTC. A Tier 5 Handbook would be a success, and it would open up a new area for D&D. In my opinion it is badly needed.

It's nice to want something official. By "success", are you say selling in the same realm as the other books that have been published? Because there's no indication that is the case. Their own feedback (released about a year ago) plus what they have from places like DnDBeyond do not show that trend that there is even a moderate amount of gamers playing in the higher Tiers, much less looking for Tier 5.

If you want to make it a priority to them, you need to show them that there are more fans who want Tier 5 content then who want settings, adventures, or another player expansion. Right now all of those have active and large fanbases so they know there is a market. Claiming it will be a "success" in not the bar to getting it published by WotC. Showing to them that it will have the most market is what will get them to look at developing it.

According to recently published stats, approximately 63% of play is in Tier 1, 27% is in Tier 2, 5% is in Tier 3, and 5% is in Tier 4.

As a result, the percentage of players who would utilize Tier 5 content would most likely be less than 5% of the D&D player base. And of those <5%, a much smaller percentage are actually actively requesting/clamoring for it.

So it's not exactly a recipe for commercial success, and it's almost certainly very far down WotC's priority list.

I like the idea, but why spend the effort if they are not likely to be PC classes? Just give NPC clerics spells like Incite Greed, good berry, heroes feast, crown of madness maybe and a few others and call it a day.

I'm normally averse to unnecessary preparation and don't need my specialist NPCs to follow PC rules for things.
