I have a player that is going to enter into a warlock pact with an ancient dragon at the next level up. Originally, the player was going to say yes and discuss things when they got back from this mission but since its a story arc and the players are taking a second they have decided to just enter anyways. The player only has to break a scale given by the dragon that will fade away afterwards.
Because of stupid improve reasons, communication in and out of this small continent isn't possible at the moment. Which means the patron can't communicate the full "terms and agreement" at this moment.
The dragon isn't evil (not looking to help anyone out for free but he isn't malicious since this player shows respect) and he isn't looking to take advantage of this player in a cruel way to screw them over. The player interests him and the company around the player interests him. The player could be a valuable member in his ranks and help him to gather information since he is traveling around places during this war time. As long as the player is civil, the dragon will be civil and will grant him power to do things for him.
The dragon has already said that he works for the king of the country. The players have even repeated it back to confirm so I know they are aware of this. Here is what I'm wondering:
If the player works for the dragon and the dragon is completely loyal and works for the king, then does that mean the player technically works for the king under the dragon?
Obviously, the dragon will inform the player of this when they get back and give them the option to stop gaining pact levels and keep what he has, convert them back to his normal levels, or keep going as is while making sure he knows their loyalty is to the king.
I highly doubt it would happen but if it does for some reason:
If the player decided to attack the king that the dragon serves, would the dragon be able to strip away all the power given since its his power to give out?
If the dragon does something he doesn't like and goes against his loyalty then can a patron do this? How far can it go?
I have never played a warlock before or dmed before so I'm not entirely sure what the warlock patron code of conduct is. Help would be appreciated.
