    These are very interesting, although there seems to be a little too much of a focus on familiars.

    Nice list, and actually see several that I'd use. Few questions about the familiar ones. 1) do they have to be your familiar, some specify some don't; if not what's the range? 2) do you allow warlocks to take familiars with Obtain Familiar, it specifies arcane caster level so I'm a little unsure on that one (I allow it but that doesn't mean much) or do they have to be theurges? 3) how do you have Share Spells and Invocations work?

    I like the invocations (or at least the non-familiar ones as I didn't read all of them), but I'd say the Lightning Blast is strong as a lesser. The cowered condition has the same effects as the stunned condition (which seems more appropriate than cowered for electricity) and the dark invocation Binding Blast (CM) simply afflicts this condition (save negates) in addition to damage. Other than that the invocations look good.

    Sorry if I came off too critically it's just much easier to point out the flawed ones than to state what makes the others work.

    1) I see Warlocks as a mostly "selfish" class; they can have good effects, but only for themselves. Familiars would be sufficiently linked to a Warlock to get in on that power. So all of them were intended for "my familiar", though feel free to change that for your own purposes of course.
    I suppose range should be touch on all of them, I honestly have seen so few familiars apart from their master that it never occurred to me to specify.
    2) I let Warlocks take Obtain Familiar. I thought they were well understood to be arcane casters, but I can't remember why honestly, besides them qualifying for Arcane Prestige Classes.
    3) I never noticed the "but not any spell-like ability" clause before, but nuts to that I say. Warlocks are special that way. (I know, I know, a very concise and proof-laden reason )

    Stunned was taken in the binding blast from complete mage, I didn't want to repeat effects, though that one was Will, so a Fort save for electricity might be sufficiently different.
    And I think you meant to upgrade it to greater?
    I have no issue with that honestly, just saw Vitriolic Blast as markedly superior to Lightning Blast, and Noxious Blast superior still in side-effect. I pondered an electro magnetic effect, but entangling armoured foes seems... silly and too much like Orb of Lightning

    It was in the first few lines, critique harshly

    I'm hesitant about making more... abstract invocations. I'm never too certain what could bend or break the Warlock. I already want to make Flee the Scene a swift, verbal invocations as an exception to the rule about them being somatic standard actions to trigger, but realize that could be cheese for glaivelocks. Additionally, I admit that Impenetrable Barrier colours the ceiling of my expectations as far as acceptable upper level power of invocations.

    Besides which, familiars could use love and blast-y things are always best enhanced by Eldritch Essences and Shapes.

    I did modify another invocation someone else made called Hoarfrost. It was basically grease extending 20ft from the Warlock. I found the execution a bit off so I tweaked it a tad, but it's not "my" work so I held it back.

    Mirrored Menace
    Lesser 3rd
    As a swift action, you create an illusory duplicate of yourself somewhere within 30ft of yourself. This otherwise works like Mirror Image with a duration of 1 round.

    Hasty Retreat
    Greater 6th
    As a swift, verbal action, you may use a dimension door effect out to short range(25ft =+5ft/2 levels) and leave a major image left behind that reacts appropriately to attacks.

    Greater Repelling Blast
    Dark 8th
    A creature of any size struck by a Greater Repelling Blast must succeed a Reflex Save of be knocked bad 1d4X10 feet and land prone

    The first two are obviously meant to be used in conjunction to annoy opponents, not to mention shenanigans with Glaivelocks, and the last... well I never liked the size restriction on Repelling Blast

    Restraining Blast
    Least 1rst
    A Restraining Blast deals no damage. Upon hitting, a Restraining Blast allows you to attempt to pin the opponent. Make opposed grapple checks (size modifiers apply). Your grapple roll is 1d20 + (BAB + your Eldritch Blast damage die). This effect lasts 2 rounds. Escape Artist/Strength DC (10+ Eldritch Blast damage die)

    Thus a 1rst level warlock would roll 1d20 + 1 and the DC to escape would be 11 while a 9th level warlock would roll 1d20 + 11 and the DC to escape would be 21

    Disarming Blast
    Least 1rst
    A Disarming Blast deals no damage. Upon hitting, a Disarming Blast allows you to attempt to disarm the opponent. Make opposed attack rolls (size modifiers apply). Your attack roll is 1d20+(BAB + Dex Modifier + your Eldritch Blast damage die). A Disarming Blast counts as a medium sized weapon.


    I'm not sure how Ability Focus should interact with these. A special exception
    for an additional bonus to your rolls, or simply a bonus to the DC to escape?
    A bonus to rolls would really help at lower levels, then transition from a pain to trivial later on.


    That aside, would these two be better off being relinquished to normal invocations? The idea was obviously to allow the Warlock to have other options than pain and mayhem with his Eldritch Blast (I'm also pondering Buffing Blasts), but their interactions with Eldritch Shapes could be nuts (a Disarming Cone? What a headache for DMs).

    Even worse with Eldritch Fireworks up there whose design was honestly campaign specific (Warlocks would compete in a tournament. Frightful Fireworks, explosions of skulls dancing through the sky, or Hellrime Fireworks, sparkling multifaceted ice crystals appearing in the sky would make for quite a show). The possibility of disarming and pinning vast amounts of foes.... oy vey.

    I apologize if my train of thought throughout this post seemed spastic, it's far past midnight, but I have made an effort to be legible -_-;


    Edit:figure I would forget something, thank goodness for edits.

    Force Blast
    Lesser 3rd
    A Force Blast deals force damage, but all damage is reduced to d4s

    Edit 2: avoiding double post.

    Black Cat Blast (Unlucky Blast)
    Least 2nd
    A creature struck by a Black Cat Blast must succeed a will save or suffer a penalty to attack rolls equal to your charisma modifier for 3 rounds. You gain a luck bonus to your attack rolls equal to this penalty for 3 round. The penalty and bonus gained through this invocation cannot exceed your caster level.

    Edit 3:

    Black Cat Parade
    Dark 5th
    Unless target creature within close range makes a successful will save, they must make all rolls twice and accept the lower result for 1 round / 2 levels.

    Wraith's Escape
    Dark 8th
    Activating this invocation is an immediate mental action. You assume a visible, incorporeal form until the end of your next turn.

    Edit 4:

    Diminishing Utterance
    Lesser 3rd
    You may use Shrink item as the spell, but it's duration is 24 hours instead of 1 day / level.

    Edit 5:

    Solar Blast
    Greater 4th
    A Solar Blast deals positive energy damage. A living creature struck by a Solar Blast gains temporary hit points equal to the damage rolled divided by 3. These temporary hit points last for 1 round and do not stack with other temporary hit points. Undead struck by a Solar Blast suffer an additional 4d6 damage.

    Vampiric Blast
    Greater 6th
    A Vampiric Blast deals 1/2 damage. The Warlock gains temporary hit points equal to the damage dealt (if used with an Eldritch shape that targets more than one creature, determine which took the greatest damage. gain that many temporary hp). However, the Warlock cannot gain more than the subjectís current hit points +10, which is enough to kill the subject. The temporary hit points disappear 1 hour later.

    Bloody Blast
    Lesser 4th
    A Warlock chooses to sacrifice hp as he uses a Bloody Blast. For every 5hp sacrificed, he deals an additional d6 of damage. If the Warlock sacrifices more than 1/4 his total hp on one such blast he continues bleeding for 1hp/turn until he receives first aid or a healing spell. Temporary hp cannot be used to fuel this ability.

    Edit 6: Last one, having more edits than posts would be ridiculous.

    Nature's Warrior
    Greater 4th
    You take the form of a Treant. Your size changes to huge, your AC changes to 20 (-2 size, -1 Dex, +13 natural), you stats change to Str 29, Dex 8, Con 21, you deal double damage against objects when making a full attack, you gain a trample attack (2d6+13, reflex DC 22 for half) and you gain two slam attacks (2d6+9). You cannot use invocations or Eldritch blasts while in this shape. this invocation lasts 1 round per 2 Warlock levels.

    Acorn Blast
    Least 2nd
    Eldritch Blast becomes an Acorn Blast, you pellet the foe with exploding acorns. These bypass spell resistance. A creature struck by an Acorn Blast must succeed a fortitude save or be dazzle for 1 minute.

    Greater 6th

    Spell Singularity
    Dark 9th
    Spell Singularity creates a pulsing, purple sphere that always remains 20 feet above you. Any magical effects (Spells, Spell-Like Abilities, and Supernatural Abilities) with a range greater than touch passing within 60 ft of you are absorbed into the sphere. Once it has absorbed (Warlock LevelX2) levels of magic, its duration ends, or it is dispelled the sphere explodes. Creatures within 30ft suffer 2d6 damage per level absorbed (reflex half). Spell Singularity lasts 1 round/2 levels.

    ELDRITCH ESSENCE
    Pollen Blast
    Least 2nd
    A creature struck by a Pollen Blast must succeed a Reflex save or be coated in scented, shimmering pollen. Invisibility is negated, their Scent ability is overwhelmed and they are easier to track by scent. The pollen is disperesed in 1 minute or by strong winds.

    ELDRITCH SHAPES
    Eldritch Infusion
    Least 1rst
    Eldritch Energies accumulate in your fingertips. As a full round action, you may transfer these energies to a creature/object. You do not count as armed. If contact is broken, the infusion fails. Should it succeed, you deal maximized Eldritch Blast damage to the creature/object.

    Eldritch Shadow (Eldritch Ghosts)
    Least 2nd
    n Eldritch Shadow takes the form of a ghostly creature or object of your choosing. This shadow must remain within 30ft of you. You may direct the Shadow as a standard action, moving it up to 60ft and making 1 attack with it (ranged touch attack). When an Eldritch Shadow is struck by a melee attack, it deals Eldritch Blast damage automatically. An Eldritch Shadow's AC is (10 + Cha Modifier + Size Modifier) The Save DC to disbelieve is (12+Charisma modifier).

    Eldritch Wall
    Lesser 3rd
    Eldritch Wall is a crystalline, malleable wall of energy. Eldrtich Walll has hp equal to your Eldritch Blast damage roll and shatters upon reaching 0 hp. A creature crashing into an Eldritch Wall takes and causes 1d6 points of damage. An Eldritch Wall lasts until the beginning of your next turn. If an Eldritch Essence modifies the Wall's energy type, the Wall negates such energy attacks. The wall is one 5X5X5ft cube per d6 of Eldritch Blast damage.

    Eldritch Bubble
    Greater 6th
    As Eldrtich Shield, but takes shape as a bubble 5ft wide per d6 of Eldritch Blast damage.

    Eldritch Encore
    Dark 9th
    An Eldritch Encore allows you to make 2 Eldrtich Blast attacks against one enemy at once. The 2nd blast has a -5 penalty to hit.

    CURSES
    Greed
    Insatiable greed consumes the creature, to the point of coveting mundane and immovable objects, like a mountain, and refusing to leave it.

    Envy
    The creature becomes exceedingly jealous, stealing from everyone only to discard items after as their envy of that item fades.

    Pride
    The creature believes they are beautiful and invincible, discarding weapon and armour to admire their self in a mirror or by simply looking down

    Wrath
    The creature is consumed with wrath, attacking to the best of their abilities the closest creature or object.

    Lust
    The creature is overwhelmed with lust. Dragon Slayers become... well any hole or pole will do.

    Sloth
    The creature loses all motivation. Such a character is prone to escaping from danger and avoids all hostile encounters.

    Gluttony
    The creature becomes eternally hungry. They become capable of and will ingest anything up to weapons.

    Chastity
    The creature becomes chaste beyond compare, guaranteeing they produce no children ever again.

    Temperance
    The creature is balanced and mechanical in all they do, never taking too much or reacting with passion.

    Charity
    The creature becomes charitable, to the point of a dragon donating his hoard. (Dragons receive a +10 racial bonus on this save)

    Diligence
    The creature becomes insanely ordered and incapable of coping with situations that were not planned.

    Patience
    The creature becomes patient beyond comprehension, waiting years for a cup of tea that was promised but may never come.

    Kindness
    The creature becomes unbelievably kind, unable to perceive any enemies or liars. They are always treated as having a friendly attitude, even in battle.

    Humility
    The creature is disturbingly humble, forgoing positions of leadership to anyone who would take it instead.

    Yay more warlock invocations.

    My opinion would be just make the disarming and grappling blasts normal invocations, except a high level warlock raising his hands above his head and disarming everyone nearby is just too cool.

    Also I'd say the Force Blast ability probably doesn't need to have a reduction to damage as Force damage is easier to resist than untyped damage which the blast already does. Even then the blast isn't that useful unless your DM runs a lot of ethereal/incorporeal enemies.

    Actually that takes care of my concerns nicely. I suppose the image of a Warlock's Eldritch blast turning into needles that pin the enemies clothes to the floor was just stuck in my head

    That's an interesting proposition. Though I would then be tempted to add another effect.
    Hm, I need to look up force spells.


    Any advice on an invocation that gives Warlocks the ability to Swallow Whole?

    According to the SRD, unless otherwise stated, you could swallow a creature up to one size smaller than you, and a human warlock's jaws unhinging as he just eats a halfling is a... potent image IMO

    Hmm, would epic evocations (I think Warlocks can get normal epic spells, but that isn't any fun.) work?

    Eldritch Cannon
    Epic Blast shape, 10th. Spellcraft dc:? (don't have much experiance with epic spells)
    Your Eldritch Blast becomes an infinite range line (it will only stop if it meets a solid object that it can not destroy.)

    Next time I build a warlock I think I'm using this one. I generally go super high AC with warlocks (Every type of bonus I can find, maxed out Dex, +5 armor and +5 mithril buckler, everything). I DMed with a warlock that went that way (they asked me to help them make a character who would survive things I did). At around 17th level his AC capped and he couldn't get it high enough to keep his nigh invincibility at 20th or at least against the things I sent at them (Advanced elemental colossal vermin) and this +5 additional bonus to AC would do have possibly done it. At 12th level, nothing would have hit him except touch attacks which would have been troublesome but if it was this or Eldritch Glaive hmm...

    All in all great work, and thanks for the invocations, keep it up.

    Eldritch Wires
    Least 1rst
    Your Eldritch Blast takes the form of nearly invisible strands of eldritch energy extending from your fingertips. You gain 2 such strands per level (10 maximum at level 5) You may maintain Eldritch Wires as a free action. As a standard action, you may make up to two touch attacks to latch 2 Eldritch Wires unto a creature within (10 / 2 levels)ft, or use all Wires at once as a full attack action. Eldritch Wires deal no damage, but add +1 circumstance bonusto the DC of resisting an Eldritch Essence's effect per 2 Wires attached. A Warlock may unlatch Wires as a free action and a creature struck by the Wires may bat them all off as a standard action. An Eldritch Wires Blast Essence may be changed as a standard action while the Wires are deployed. If Eldritch Wires are applied to an Eldritch Blast which only deals damage (Such as a base Eldritch Blast or a Gem Blast, but not a Brimstone or Vitrolic Blast), they instead apply a -(1 / 2 die of damage[rounded up]) penalty to the creatures AC as it is constantly pestered by jolts of pain causing them to wince at just the wrong time.

    I'm sure I forgot something in the writing of this, but I can't remember what it is for the life of me.


    Errata:
    -Wires can be attached to multiple opponents at once, though only 1 creature can be targeted by any single attempt to attach Wires (ergo you must spend the next round targeting another creature with any unattached Wires you may have if you wish to target multiple creatures).
    -Cannot maintain Eldritch Wires and use another Eldrtich Blast in the same round.
    -You remain free to use other invocations and items, but the threads are fragile at both ends (your finger tips and the creature who may chop them off), attacks and other violent actions made by you automatically cancel the Wires. A creature passing between you and someone who has Wires attached does not interfere with their hold and they may not be attacked as they constantly move and dart about, avoiding obstacles. Only their anchorage points are susceptible.
    -Added an "up to" to standard touch attacks, should a Warlock want to attach a single Wire.
    -Changed the DC boost to 1/2 Wires. The possibility of a +10 to the DC check seemed passable at first, until I realize that it wouldn't always work of the Wire's level, and Utterdark Wires with a DC 28 to resist (before other modifiers) was a tad... silly let us say. Also named the bonus.
    -Solar Wires would renew (1 /d6 of Eldritch Blast Damage) temporary hp per round on the beginning of your turn.
    -A creature with Wires attached to it automatically breaks their hold on (him/her) if (he/she) leaves your Wire's range.


    That being said, it might be more fun to be a puppeteer to your allies than your enemies, so...
    (note: These Essences do work with Shapes such as Eldritch Aura and co., but if a shape reduces the damage of an Eldritch Blast, it like wise reduces these bonuses [So the Sure Strike Aura of a level 11 Warlock would grant a +3 insight bonus on attack rolls to all creatures within 5ft, including enemies]

    Sure Strike Blast
    Least 1rst
    A Sure Strike Blast deals no damage. A creature hit by this blast receives an insight bonus to all attack rolls made in the next round. This bonus is equal to +(1 /d6 of Eldritch Blast Damage).

    Shell Blast
    Least 1rst
    A Shell Blast deals no damage. A creature hit by this blast receives a shield bonus to his AC for 1 round. This bonus is equal to +(1 /d6 of Eldritch Blast Damage).

    Ward Blast
    Least 2nd
    A Ward Blast deals no damage. A creature hit by this blast receives an enhancement bonus on saves made to resist Spells, and Supernatural and Spell-Like Abilities for 1 round. This bonus is equal to +(1 /d6 of Eldritch Blast Damage).

    Strong-Arm Blast
    Lesser 3rd
    A Strong-Arm Blast deals no damage. A creature hit by this blast receives an enhancement bonus on damage rolls for 1 round. This bonus is equal to +(2 /d6 of Eldritch Blast Damage).


    I realize the wording is clunky, but I believe the intent of each Essence is clear enough to understand.
    Well, I think that's enough, I'll let this barren thread die now
    It's a bit worrying to account for so many of the posts contained herein

    What exactly does 'anesthetize the creature' mean?

    Also, this makes me want to create a whole line of Invocations for healing. And if you don't mind, can I share some Invocation ideas with you, since you seem far more capable then myself? If not, let me know and i'll clean up this post.

    Shaded Respite: Works as endurance feat except it suppresses fatigue effects for failed checks for 24 hours. You take non lethal damage from failed checks normally you simply don't feel their effects, once you reach KO you immediacy fall unconscious.

    Dark Resurrection: Allows you to use Resurrection as the spell. Must have the same material components.

    Me and My Shadow: An invocation which works as Contingency but only for other invocations. Must have the same material component focus only in this case it is a voodoo doll made of cloth, sewn gems, and stuffed with saw dust your own hair, nail clippings, etc. AKA "Die for me". Can be used to hold the material component for Dark Resurrection, thus meaning if you die it will resurrect you, or rather, die for you. Others can be made for specific people, like, your entire party. But only one at a time per person.
    Think what you want. I can't stop you.

    If you want to flavour it a little differently though

    My Soul for Yours: With a touch, you send your soul to barter the return of another. You raise a fallen creature who has been dead for less than 1 minute. Doing so is taxing on your mind and spirit and you suffer 1d4 Charisma damage and lose 200xp/HD of the creature you are raising.

    I don't know how your group would feel about the possibility of every high level opponent they know carrying around a "1up", so I made this more restrictive version. Mind you it is by no means perfect, nor is my opinion.

    Cursed Dolls: You create a small, simple doll. You must place an item which harbours a direct link with the creature to be warded by the doll into the doll (hair, nail, blood, skin, etc). You may only have 1 doll/person, attempting to create another sets the other ablaze and negates its effects.
    You may tie an invocation into the doll set to target that creature upon specific conditions set upon its creation (25 words or less). Doing so seals your usage of said invocation as its energies are focused elsewhere. Using the tied invocation destroys the doll.
    You may channel beneficial or baneful invocations within the dolls. Once triggered, the material link is destroyed and allows your power to bypass the need for Spell Resistance or Saves.
    Invocations that would require concentration have a duration of 3 rounds

    I understand but what does it mean mechanically, you can identify a poison or disease in someone and delay it's affects? if so how long? or does it work on wounds? Nonlethal damage?

    Yup, Basically it is endurance feat only it suppresses any negative effects for failing a save for 24 hours, letting you take nonlethal damage without actually feeling it until it reaches your totally HP count and you fall unconscious. Not much of a Invocation honestly... maybe if I added immunity to fatigue and exhaustion for outside sources, such as from spells...?

    Seems fine.
    If you want to flavour it a little differently though

    My Soul for Yours: With a touch, you send your soul to barter the return of another. You raise a fallen creature who has been dead for less than 1 minute. Doing so is taxing on your mind and spirit and you suffer 1d4 Charisma damage and lose 200xp/HD of the creature you are raising.
    I don't know if such a punishment should be leveled against an invocation player. sure it is usable at will, but you still need the 10kgp Material component and all the other restrictions of the spell apply. Making someone loose xp and take cha damage just seems too steep a price for at will, afterall, Clerics can cast it will no ill effects all they like.

    Though I suppose for flavor if it must needs balancing out...

    Candle in the Void
    Greater; 7th
    You channel raw Eldridge energy as a beacon to lost souls, enabling you to use resurrection as the spell. On top of needing the required material component it also does 1d4 con damage as a result of physically channeling that much raw energy which goes away after you have rested for eight hours.

However Doing so seals your usage of said invocation as its energies are focused elsewhere. seems a bit off, if one can cast invocations at will all day, why would an item which has an invocation in reserve not allow you to cast it?

    It's only to relieve a creature of suffering. There is not lasting benefit
    it offers no recovery, but may ease their passage.
    I suppose there is a case to be made that a numb creature is immune to being nauseated, but I would check with your DM.

    I think you misunderstood, the invocation I proposed had no material component. The price was Cha damage and XP reflecting strain on your soul (cha damage) and a price paid to whatever otherworldly force controls death in your setting (xp). I apologize for not being clearer.

    This works too, I had no problem with your first resurrection invocation balance wise, but thought the idea of sending the warlock's soul out to buy back the soul of the fallen creature was neat enough to merit putting it out there.

    Couldn't a high level opponent buy a 1up doll?
    If the invocation's eldritch energies are bound in a loop from the doll to warlock, then it prevents the possibility of warlocks selling these dolls like hot-cakes as they cannot create X copies, only the one.
    That being said, the material component may make this possibility null as wealth levels vary wildly from game to game.

    If your DM is ok with that possibility, then by all means. I just tend to err on the side of caution as my DM tends to be uncomfortable with homebrew and therefore more permissive of more restrictive spells/invocations. The potential for abuse is always there in his eyes.

    Other than that, I'd only suggest shifting the shaken condition from the Doll invocation to the resurrection invocation, representing minor system shock from being pulled back from the brink.
    Channeling an invocation like Curse of Despair through the Doll and adding the shaken condition on top of that could be too powerful, butchering saves like no-body's business (-2 from shaken, -4 from Curse of Despair, your caster friends would be jumping for joy, but your DM might cry ;-) ).

    Ah, seems rather tame for a invocation, it doesn't really have an effect and is just fluff, I understand. I don't really see anyone using this aside from a prereq for the others... hmmm... I dunno I'd add an effect at least like delay poison, just so it has SOME use to it. But I'm not the best with balancing issues.


    I think you misunderstood, the invocation I proposed had no material component. The price was Cha damage and XP reflecting strain on your soul (cha damage) and a price paid to whatever otherworldly force controls death in your setting (xp). I apologize for not being clearer.
    Ah I see. I would keep it gp wise because it then allows other players to pay you for helping them, since they can not guarantee paying you xp. The spell itself is balanced so i don't see why this isn't balanced, and for at will, well it can't be used at will all the time because of temp con damage to yourself and for obvious reasons too much con damage and your out of the game. But I made it not permanent because that would be WAY to steep a price, you could abuse this for hellfire warlock I suppose but then it also take a material component so it's only as abusable as the cash allows.

    So all in all I thought, temp con damage as a measure of tax on your body from using all the energy as you mimic divine energy itself, arguably more devastating to loose con then cha. I don't think spells should have xp penalties unless they can duplicate such things as wish and whatnot. But as this is only a resurrection ability, and not even a true resurrection, I think the con damage would keep it under control at will and the gp cost manageable and more inline with the real spell. Make sense?

    This works too, I had no problem with your first resurrection invocation balance wise, but thought the idea of sending the warlock's soul out to buy back the soul of the fallen creature was neat enough to merit putting it out there.
    Soul projection is all well and good but then you have trouble with dealing with alignment, for example what if you try to send your chaotic soul after a lawful character and end up on a lawful plane? And what if you get Anchored to this plane? that sort of problem. It's not specified but could come up. Where as if it costs you health and money, well you can't use it numerous times all day providing an endless supply of resurrections, you'd die or run out of material components rather quickly. It wasn't meant to replace a true ressurector, just allow you to do so in a pinch. EDIT: also, how does one barter? do you need to make diplomacy, intimidate, or bluff checks? and what do you barter with xp? gp? all perhaps fluff I suppose, but it could come up. I'd rather use soul projection for things like... Dark Commune, or some such, where you can speak with deities and what not. Just seems to fit more... and the risks that go with it, make it sound more in line with that Warlock sending invocation which can damage you.

    Couldn't a high level opponent buy a 1up doll?
    If the invocation's eldritch energies are bound in a loop from the doll to warlock, then it prevents the possibility of warlocks selling these dolls like hot-cakes as they cannot create X copies, only the one.
    That being said, the material component may make this possibility null as wealth levels vary wildly from game to game.
    hmm certainly, but the material cost would make this quite expensive, 11,500gp per doll that give you one extra life, yet makes you shaken after using for one round would be neat I'd think.

    And if the material component and shaken effect aren't enough of a drawback, I suppose lowering Candle in the Void's the power and price to that of raise dead would be better? That way it doesn't restore you to full health and you can be easily re-killed afterward AND the doll can only hold one invocation at a time. This risk is lessened by the fact you have a party backing you up, and therefore would be more valuable to player characters as opposed to solo big bads. But then again the PC can always be re-killed right after as well... so... it is STILL a risk. But then again, there is always the chance you will be helped or saved by your party and therefore back in the game as opposed to just being dead. What do you think?

    If your DM is ok with that possibility, then by all means. I just tend to err on the side of caution as my DM tends to be uncomfortable with homebrew and therefore more permissive of more restrictive spells/invocations. The potential for abuse is always there in his eyes.

    Ah sorry I meant to make it the target of the spell as in, the person who uses it. So if you used it like that the Caster would be shaken, not the target who triggered the doll.

    This represents the 'curse' of the doll, as in severing the link from the 'hair, fingernails, etc' the doll suffers in your place and you feel as if someone has walked over your grave, as in "that could have been me" etc. The shaken condition applies to the person for which the doll was made, and they are shaken regardless of what the doll affects. Hence, Curse. ...I just don't know how to clarify that in the text very well. hmmm...
