    Default [PF] Warlock Redesign [WIP]

    So this thread has expanded to house my entire homebrew Warlock for Pathfinder. It is an obvious upconversion of the 3.5 Warlock, but with 45% more Sorcerer as this Warlock replaces Sorcerer in my homebrew setting.

    Currently this thread has a fully developed warlock progression with new special abilities and altered progressions of existing abilities. I will be adding new invocations as well as the blood pact powers and invocations shortly.

    Original Post spoilered for posterity:

    Right, so I've been working on a new version of the warlock for pathfinder. This warlock will replace the sorcerer in my homebrew setting and therefore builds on both the warlock chassis and the sorcerer's abilities. I'm working on sifting through all the existing invocations and brewing up new ones, but for right now I wanted some critiques on one of the major changes I'm brewing up for the warlocks. Warlocks are now required, at 1st level, to select one blood pact, which will determine several of their abilities as they level up. These grant new invocations, damage reduction and resistance types, an extra class skill, as well as a few other abilities. Specifically I've associated the invocations with one or more pacts each and limited the way warlocks select their invocations based on their pacts. Read below for the new invocation rules. Firstly, I want to make sure this is clear. Secondly, I want opinions on if this is a good plan or not. Changing how you select your invocations based on your power source seems like a good idea, but I haven't playtested it yet so before I do a whole slew of work on the concept I'd like opinions.

    Spoiler

    Invocations: Warlocks do not cast spells like Arcanists, but instead have a select number of Invocations which they activate as spell-like abilities at will. Thusly, using an invocation is a standard action which provokes an attack of opportunity. An invocation can be disrupted just as a spell being cast. A warlock is entitled to a concentration check to successfully use an invocation by the same rules as a spell being cast. A warlock may also invoke defensively just as an arcanist may cast defensively. A warlock’s caster level with his invocations is equal to his warlock level.

    The save DC for an invocation (If a save is allowed) is 10 + equivalent spell level + the warlock’s Charisma modifier. Since spell-like abilities are not actually spells, a warlock cannot benefit from feats which apply to spells, however he can benefit from spells which specify spell-like abilities as their targets.

    There are four grades of invocations and they are, in order of power: Least, Lesser, Greater, and Dark. A warlock gains knowledge of new invocations according to table 1:1 (the warlock). At level 1 he has access to least invocations only. At level 6 he gains lesser invocations, greater at level 11, and dark at level 16.

    Invocations also have associated pacts. A warlock chooses his blood pact at level 1, see below, which determines his primary pact. A warlock can select any invocation of his primary pact or the eldritch pact at his highest available grade. A warlock may select invocations of a pact that is not his primary pact or the eldritch pact, but he selects them at a grade lower than his highest available grade. For example, a level 12 daemonic blood pact warlock would have access to greater invocations of the daemonic or eldritch pacts, but only lesser invocations from any other pact. Invocations from non-primary pacts selected in this manner still take up a slot as if they were of a higher grade, meaning that the warlock from the example would treat a lesser invocation from the fey blood pact as a greater invocation learned.

    When a warlock attains a new level he has the option or replacing any one invocation he currently knows for any other invocation of the same effective grade, see above for non-primary pact invocations. Unlike other spell-like abilities, invocations are subject to arcane spell failure chance as spells. Warlocks, however, may invoke in light armor without incurring any arcane spell failure chance, due to the relatively simple somatic components of their invocations. Warlocks may also benefit from prestige classes which have spellcasting prerequisites and +1 spellcasting level advancement. Warlocks qualify for prestige classes with casting level requirements or invoking requirements, but not for spellcasting level requirements. Any prestige class which grants a +1 to arcane spellcasting level or +1 to previous spellcasting level grants a warlock a higher caster level and higher damage on his eldritch blast, but no new invocations or any other benefit of leveling as a warlock.


    Edit: As a point of interest, there are eight blood pacts in this system. Eldritch (universal), Aberrant, Daemonic, Fey, Protean, Draconic, Entropic, and Necrotic.

    Invocations: Warlocks do not cast spells like Arcanists, but instead have a select number of Invocations which they activate as spell-like abilities at will. Thusly, using an invocation is a standard action which provokes an attack of opportunity. An invocation can be disrupted just as a spell being cast. A warlock is entitled to a concentration check to successfully use an invocation by the same rules as a spell being cast. A warlock may also invoke defensively just as an arcanist may cast defensively. A warlock’s caster level with his invocations is equal to his warlock level.

    The save DC for an invocation (If a save is allowed) is 10 + equivalent spell level + the warlock’s Charisma modifier. Since spell-like abilities are not actually spells, a warlock cannot benefit from feats which apply to spells, however he can benefit from spells which specify spell-like abilities as their targets.

    There are four grades of invocations and they are, in order of power: Least, Lesser, Greater, and Dark. A warlock gains knowledge of new invocations according to table 1:1 (the warlock). At level 1 he has access to least invocations only. At level 6 he gains lesser invocations, greater at level 11, and dark at level 16.

    Invocations also have associated pacts. A warlock chooses his blood pact at level 1, see below, which determines his primary pact. A warlock can select any invocation of his primary pact or the eldritch pact at his highest available grade. A warlock may select invocations of a pact that is not his primary pact or the eldritch pact, but he selects them at a grade lower than his highest available grade. For example, a level 12 daemonic blood pact warlock would have access to greater invocations of the daemonic or eldritch pacts, but only lesser invocations from any other pact. Invocations from non-primary pacts selected in this manner still take up a slot as if they were of a higher grade, meaning that the warlock from the example would treat a lesser invocation from the fey blood pact as a greater invocation learned.

    When a warlock attains a new level he has the option or replacing any one invocation he currently knows for any other invocation of the same effective grade, see above for non-primary pact invocations. Unlike other spell-like abilities, invocations are subject to arcane spell failure chance as spells. Warlocks, however, may invoke in light armor without incurring any arcane spell failure chance, due to the relatively simple somatic components of their invocations. Warlocks may also benefit from prestige classes which have spellcasting prerequisites and +1 spellcasting level advancement. Warlocks qualify for prestige classes with casting level requirements or invoking requirements, but not for spellcasting level requirements. Any prestige class which grants a +1 to arcane spellcasting level or +1 to previous spellcasting level grants a warlock a higher caster level and higher damage on his eldritch blast, but no new invocations or any other benefit of leveling as a warlock.

    Blood Pact: At 1st level a warlock chooses his blood pact. A warlock’s blood pact determines several aspects of his powers. Most importantly it determines the warlock’s primary invocations. A warlock selects invocations of his blood pact at the maximum grade available to him, but any invocations from other pacts are selected at a grade lower than the maximum, with the exception of the Eldritch blood pact, which all warlocks have full access to.

    A warlock’s blood pact also determines his bonus class skill, his blood powers, his blood resistance type, and his damage reduction type. There are eight blood pacts available to warlocks, including the Eldritch blood pact: Aberrant, Daemonic, Draconic, Eldritch, Entropic, Fey, Necrotic, and Protean. The benefits of each pact are listed below.

    Eldritch Blast (Sp): The first ability a warlock learns is his eldritch blast. A warlock attacks his foes with eldritch power, using baleful magical energy to deal damage and sometimes to impart other debilitating effects.

    An eldritch blast is a ray with a range of 60 feet. It is a ranged touch attack that affects a single target, allowing now saving throw. An eldritch blast deals 1d6 points of damage at 1st level and increases in power as the warlock rises in level. An eldritch blast is the equivalent of a 1st level spell. If you apply a blast shape or eldritch essence to your eldritch blast your eldritch blast uses the level equivalent of the shape or essence in place of the eldritch blast’s level.

    An eldritch blast is subject to spell resistance, although the Spell Penetration feat and other effects that improve caster level to overcome spell resistance also apply to eldritch blast. An eldritch blast deals half damage to objects. Metamagic feats cannot improve a warlock’s eldritch blast (because it is a spell-like ability, not a spell), however, the feat ability focus (eldritch blast)(MM 303) increases the DC for all saving throws (if any) associated with the warlock’s eldritch blast by 2.

    Detect Magic (Sp): Beginning at 2nd level, a warlock can use detect magic as the spell at will. His caster level equals his class level.

    Damage Reduction (Su): A 2nd level warlock becomes more resistant to physical harm as the supernatural blood within him becomes more potent. He gains damage reduction 1 at second level of the type listed under his blood pact. This damage reduction increases by 1 every second level after. (2 at 4th, 3 at 6th, etc.)

    Blast Essences: At 3rd level a warlock gains a secondary progression of invocations. These are specifically for gaining blast shapes and eldritch essences, which are listed in their own invocations list. Warlocks may still choose to gain a blast shape or eldritch essence as an invocation normally learned, but these bonus invocations learned must be selected from blast shapes and eldritch essences. They are shown on table 1:1 as a /# representing known invocations and follow the same rules for selection as normal invocations. All blast shapes and eldritch essences are treated as invocations from the Eldritch blood pact.

    Blood Power (Su): At 3rd level a warlock gains a supernatural ability unique to his blood pact. He gains a second ability at 9th level and a third at 15th. These abilities are listed under his blood pact.

    Pact Invocation: At 3rd level a warlock gains a bonus invocation from his blood pact which does not count against his total known invocations. He gains another at 8th, 13th, and 18th levels. These invocations are listed under his blood pact.

    Deceive Item (Ex): At 4th level and higher, a warlock has the ability to more easily commandeer magic items made for the use of other characters. When making a Use Magic Device check, a warlock can take 10 even if distracted or threatened.

    Blood Resistance (Su): At 5th level and higher a warlock gains resistance 10 to the energy type listed under his blood pact. This resistance increases to 20 at 10th level, 30 at 15th level, and becomes immunity at 20th level.

    Imbue Item (Su): A warlock of 12th level or higher can use his supernatural powers to create magic items, even if he does not know the spells required to make an item (although he must know the appropriate item creation feat). He can substitute a Use Magic Device check (DC 15 + spell level for arcane spells or 25 + spell level for divine spells) in place of a required spell he doesn’t know or can’t cast.

    If the check succeeds, the warlock can create the item as if he had cast the required spell. If it fails, he cannot complete the item. He does not expect the gp cost for making the item; his progress is simply arrested. He cannot retry this Use Magic Device check until he gains a new level.

    Pact Lorde (Su): At 20th level a warlock becomes a paragon of tainted blood. In addition to gaining a unique ability based on his blood pact, he also gains the following abilities:

    • A Pact Lorde can induct new initiates into a blood pact, allowing those not born to the blood to take levels as a warlock. This is usually done through a complex ritual involving summoning a representative of the blood (a daemon for daemonic pacts, a dragon for draconic pacts, etc) and transferring some of the pact lorde’s blood into the initiate.

    • A Pact Lorde may invoke his eldritch blast as a swift action a number of times per day equal to his charisma modifier.

    • A Pact Lorde does not age further and takes no further penalties from age, nor does he gain bonuses from aging. Bonuses and penalties already accrued remain. A pact lorde does not die of old age, though he is in no other way resistant to death. A pact lorde may be raised as normal, but may not be subject to the Reincarnate spell.

    • A Pact Lorde is so interwoven with magic that he gains the ability to neutralize magic cast against him. He may activate a blood shield which creates a translucent, red bubble of eldritch energy around him, which remains centered on the warlock and has a twofold effect. Firstly, it acts as a Lesser Globe of Invulnerability. Secondly, the shield adds the pact lorde’s charisma modifier to his armor class as a deflection bonus and deals 1d12 + Charisma modifier damage to any creature that attacks the pact lorde with a natural weapon or a non-reach melee weapon. This is a spell-like ability with an equivalent spell level of 9th that may be activated at will as a standard action and deactivated at will as a swift action.

    • Finally, a Pact Lorde’s blood becomes toxic to normal creatures of the material plane. A pact lorde’s blood is a poison that may be delivered through injury or ingestion. (Damage 1d3 Con, 1d8 Cha, DC 15 + Warlock’s charisma modifier.


    Racial Favored Class Options
    Spoiler
    Show
    Only a small number of races routinely produce Warlocks, though any race theoretically could, therefore the number of races with unique favored class options for the Warlock is somewhat limited. The choices are:

    Human: +1/4 Invocation Known
    Half-Elf: +1/5 of +1d6 Eldritch Blast damage
    Elf: +1/5 Charisma
    Half-Orc: +1/2 weapon proficiency
    Gnome: +1/3 DC on Invocations that impose Will saving throws


    Designer's Note: Right, so I supe'd the Eldritch Blast, DR, and Resistance abilities, dropped fiendish resistance, and added a new system for invocation selection. I added in a source of uniqueness based on various blood pacts (based heavily on the Sorcerer's bloodlines) and attempted to add to the warlock's versatility through invocation selection. Deceive and Imbue Item remained as written in the 3.5 Warlock entry.

    Edit (1/24/13): Added Racial Favored Class alternate options.

    Warlock Blood Pacts

    Warlock blood pacts are the direct source of warlock powers. There are two ways to become a warlock. The first, and most common by far, is to be born with the blood of a representative of a given blood pact. This could be a draconic or fey ancestor leading to the birth of a draconic or fey warlock, or this could represent a daemonic pact warlock ancestor who conceived their child after their own pact was made, as examples. However it came to pass, the blood of these warlocks is naturally tainted by their ancestry to result in their unique gifts. The second way to become a warlock is through a bargain with an eldritch power, such as a sidhe lorde or a daemon prince. Few warlocks gain their power though bargains as the ritual is complex and difficult to learn and perform, and also because few beings powerful enough to form such a pact are interested in creating an all-too-weak slave for their effort. The vast majority of warlocks created in this fashion are daemonic blood pact warlocks as daemons are most likely to offer such bargains in exchange for services, souls, or entry into the mortal world. Thus the name used by warlocks to represent their gifts granted by blood or earned through pacts, the blood pact.

    Eldritch Blood Pact
    Spoiler
    Show
    The Eldritch blood pact is not exactly a pact. It represents shared powers that all warlocks gain through using the same form of magic. This pact marks universal invocations, the eldritch blast, and the blast shape/eldritch essence invocations. Listed here for completeness.


    Aberrant Blood Pact
    Spoiler
    Show
    Your blood comes from beyond the limits of the cosmos as you know them. Distant realms beyond the furthest veil have touched your blood and left you marked as alien to all that you know.
    Class Skill: Knowledge (Dungeoneering)
    Resistance: Acid
    Damage Reduction: X/Lawful
    Pact Invocations: XXXX
    Blood Power: Voice of Madness (Su): At 1st level, you gain the ability to understand and speak any language you can hear.

    Otherworldly Whispers (Su): At 3rd level, you are immune to mind-affecting spells and effects and are trained in all knowledge skills. You use your highest number of ranks in a knowledge skill to determine the bonus to any knowledge rolls you make. (For example, if you have three ranks in knowledge (dungeoneering) and no ranks in any other knowledge, then you treat all knowledge skills as having three ranks.)

    Unusual Anatomy (Ex): At 9th level, your anatomy changes, giving you a 25% chance to ignore any critical hit or sneak attack scored against you. This chance increases to 50% at 13th level.

    Alien Resistance (Su): At 15th level, you gain spell resistance equal to your sorcerer level + 10.

    Aberrant Form (Ex): At 20th level, your body becomes truly unnatural. You are immune to critical hits and sneak attacks. In addition, you gain blindsight with a range of 60 feet.


    Daemonic Blood Pact
    Spoiler
    Show
    The taint in your blood comes from trafficking with daemons, the vile denizens of the underworld. These irrepressibly evil beings have mingled themselves with you and their mark pulls you toward their villainous plots.
    Class Skill: Perception
    Resistance: Fire
    Damage Reduction: X/Good
    Pact Invocations: XXXX
    Blood Power: Hellspines (Su): At 1st level, you grow wicked red spines all over your body as a move action. Treat your hellspines as armor spikes and spiked gauntlets with which you are proficient. At 5th level these spines deal 1d6 fire damage in addition to their weapon damage. At 10th level this increases to 2d6 fire damage, 3d6 at 15th level, and 4d6 at 20th level.

    Hellhound (Su): At 3rd level, you gain a daemonic servant bound to you in the form of a Hell Hound, see Pathfinder Bestiary. This Hell Hound always remains at your side unless it is commanded to remain elsewhere and may be summoned to your side as a standard action. This Hell Hound is treated as if under the effects of Greater Invisibility at all times. At 9th level this companion evolves into a Nessian Hell Hound. It also gains traits as per the following chart, based on your warlock level.

    A warlock can only have one Hell Hound in his service at any one time, and should his Hell Hound die he may call for another after a year and a day. The new Hell Hound has all the accumulated abilities due a companion of the warlock’s current level.

    The abilities mentioned in the “Special” column of the accompanying table are described below.

    Empathic Link (Su): The warlock has an empathic link to his Hell hound out to a distance of up to 1 mile. The warlock cannot see through the hell Hound’s eeys, but they can communicate empathically. Because of the limited nature of the link, only general emotional content (such as fear, hunger, happiness, curiosity) can be communicated. Because of the empathic link between the Hell Hound and the warlock, the warlock has the same connection to a place or an item that the Hell Hound does.

    Improved Evasion (Ex): If the Hell Hound is subjected to an attack that normally allows a Reflex saving throw for half damage, it takes no damage on a successful saving throw, and only half damage on a failed saving throw. Improved evasion is an extraordinary ability.

    Share Saving Throws: For each of its saving throws, the Hell Hound uses either its own base save bonus or the warlock’s, whichever is higher. The Hell Hound applies its own ability modfiers to saves, and it doesn’t share any other bonuses on saves that the warlock might have (such as from magic items or feats).

    Share Spells: At the warlock’s option, he may have any spell or invocation he casts on himself also affect his Hell Hound. The Hell Hound must be within 5 feet at the time of casting to receive the benefit. If the spell or invocation has a duration other than instantaneous, it stops affecting the Hell Hound if it moves farther than 5 feet away and it will not affect the servant again even if the servant returns to the warlock before the duration expires. Additionally, the warlock may cast a spell with a target of “You” on his Hell Hound (as a touch range spell) instead of on himself. A warlock and his Hell Hound can share spells even if the spells normally do not affect creatures of the Hell Hound’s type.

    Speak with Warlock (Ex): If the warlock’s class level is 13th or higher, the warlock and the Hell Hound can communicate verbally as if they were using a common language. Other creatures do not understand the communication without magical help.

    Blood Bond (Ex): If the warlock’s class level is 16th or higher, the servant gains a +2 bonus on all attack rolls, checks, and saves if it witnesses the warlock being threatened or harmed. This bonus lasts as long as the threat is immediate and apparent.

    Spell Resistance (Ex): If the warlock’s class level is 19th or higher, the servant gains spell resistance equal to the warlock’s class level. To affect the Hell Hound with a spell, another spellcaster must get a result on a caster level check (1d20 + caster level) that equals or exceeds the Hell Hound’s spell resistance.


    Fiendish Resilience (Su): At 9th level, a warlock learns to enter a state of fast healing 2 as a free action. This state lasts for 2 minutes per day which does not have to be used consecutively. This improves to fast healing 5 at 13th level and fast healing 10 at 18th level.

    Devil’s Wings (Su): At 15th level, a warlock grows demonic wings which grant him a fly speed of 10 ft. x his Dexterity modifier with perfect maneuverability.

    Dark Quintessence (Su): At 20th level, a warlock becomes an outsider (native) and gains immunity to poisons, telepathy out to 100 feet, and the ability to once per day summon (level 5) any of the following: 1 marilith (20%), 1 nalfeshnee (35%), or 1d4 hezrous (60%). The warlock’s appearance also shifts to look slightly more daemonic. Though the exact traits gained are at the discretion of the gamemaster, the warlock gains a +2 inherent bonus on all intimidate checks.

    In ancient times dragons were plentiful and powerful, and would mingle freely with mortals. Your ancestry attests to that time of powerful beings and you carry the unmistakable mark of the dragons.
    Class Skill: Diplomacy
    Resistance: Varies
    Damage Reduction: X/Magic
    Pact Invocations: XXXX
    Blood Power: Unique to the draconic blood pact warlocks, you must also select a type of draconic energy to which you owe your ancestry. You can select acid, shock, fire, or cold (earth, air, fire, or water). Whichever you select determines your resistance as well as the nature of your draconic blood powers.

    Claws (Su): Starting at 1st level, you can grow claws as a free action. These claws are treated as natural weapons, allowing you to make two claw attacks as a full attack action using your full base attack bonus. Each of these attacks deals 1d4 points of damage plus your Strength modifier (1d3 if you are Small). At 5th level, these claws are considered magic weapons for the purpose of overcoming DR. At 7th level, the damage increases by one step to 1d6 points of damage (1d4 if you are Small). At 11th level, these claws deal an additional 1d6 points of damage of your energy type on a successful hit. You can use your claws for a number of rounds per day equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier. These rounds do not need to be consecutive.

    Scales (Su): At 3rd level, you gain a +1 natural armor bonus. At 9th level, your natural armor bonus increases to +2. At 15th level, your natural armor bonus increases to +4.

    Breath Weapon (Su): At 9th level, you gain a breath weapon. This breath weapon deals 1d6 points of damage of your energy type per warlock level. Those caught in the area of the breath receive a Reflex save for half damage. The DC of this save is equal to 10 + 1/2 your warlock level + your Charisma modifier. The shape of the breath weapon is a 30 foot cone. At 9th level, you can use this ability once per day. At 17th level, you can use this ability twice per day. At 20th level, you can use this ability three times per day.

    Wings (Su): At 15th level, leathery dragon wings grow from your back as a standard action, giving you a fly speed of 60 feet with average maneuverability. You can dismiss the wings as a free action.

    Power of Wyrms (Su): At 20th level, your draconic heritage becomes manifest. You gain immunity to paralysis and sleep and you also gain blindsense 60 feet.


    Entropic Blood Pact
    Spoiler
    Show
    You are bound up with the void and its powerful will to annihilate all existence. One of void’s minions has stained your blood and you are forever drawn to destroy everything you come in contact with.
    Class Skill: Knowledge (History)
    Resistance: Force
    Damage Reduction: X/-
    Pact Invocations: XXXX
    Blood Power: Shard of Void (Su): At 1st level, you gain the Shard of Entropy power as an entropomancer (CD 37) with save DC's based on your charisma modifier.

    Entropic Field (Su): At 3rd level you gain the Entropic Field power as an entropomancer (CD 38).

    Aura of Void (Su): At 9th level, you gain blindsight 30 ft. and can create an aura of will-sapping energy as a standard action that causes any creature within 30 ft. of you to make a Will save (DC 15 + Charisma modifier) or take a -2 on all saving throws, attack rolls, skill checks, ability checks, and damage rolls for a number of rounds equal to your Charisma modifier. You can also smother any non-magical light within your aura and you reduce the light level of any magical light by one category as a free action.

    Spirit of the Void (Su): At 15th level you gain the Control Sphere power as an entropomancer (CD 38).

    Entropic Blast (Su): At 20th level your eldritch blasts that you do not modify with an eldritch essence have a 5% chance of being entropic blasts. If the blast is entropic, then the target must succeed a Fortitude save, DC = 10 + warlock level + charisma modifier, or be overcome with searing pain as the victim’s form melts, flows, writes, and boils. During this entropic state, the victim cannot cast spells or magic items, and it attacks blindly unable to distinguish friend from foe (-4 penalty on attack rolls and a 50% miss chance, regardless of the attack roll). Each round spent in this entropic state, the victim takes 1 point of Wisdom drain from mental shock. If the victim’s Wisdom score falls to 0 it discorporates into nothingness.
    A victim can take a standard action to attempt a charisma check against the same DC. Success ends the entropic state and renders the victim immune to it for 1 minute. On a failure the victim can still repeat this attempt every round. A shapechange or stoneskin spell will halt the state for the duration of the spell, but does not remove it. A restoration, heal, or greater restoration spell removes the affliction (though a separate restoration is necessary to restore any drained Wisdom).


    Fey Blood Pact
    Spoiler
    Show
    The powerful fey have mixed with your blood and their magic is part of your very being. You feel the draw of the otherworld and the lure of the fey “art.”
    Class Skill: Handle Animal
    Resistance: Sonic
    Damage Reduction: X/Cold Iron
    Pact Invocations: XXXX
    Blood Power: Dreamspeaker (Su): At 1st level, you have learned the secrets of fey magic that controls sleep. You may use sleep as a spell-like ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier. This effect lasts for 1 minute and does not require concentration. The penalty on saves versus sleep effects increases to -4.

    Woodland Stride (Ex): At 3rd level, you can move through any sort of undergrowth (such as natural thorns, briars, overgrown areas, and similar terrain) at your normal speed without taking damage or suffering other impairment. Thorns, briars, and overgrown areas that have been magically manipulated to impede motion, however, still affect you.

    Fleeting Glance (Sp): At 9th level, you can turn invisible for a number of rounds per day equal to your warlock level. This ability functions as greater invisibility. These rounds need not be continuous.

    Beastfriend (Su): At 15th level, you have discovered the key to fey affinity for animals. You gain the service of an animal companion as the Druid ability of the same name. Your effective Druid level is equal to your Warlock level -3.

    Feykith (Su): At 20th level, you have become one with the fey. You gain immunity to all natural poisons, DR 10/cold iron, and may enter the otherworlds unimpeded. Entering the otherworld is in all respects the same as becoming ethereal as per the spell ethereal jaunt. You may cross to the otherworlds a number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier (minimum 1).


    Necrotic Blood Pact
    Spoiler
    Show
    The power of the grave is interwoven with your blood. You feel a kinship with the walking dead and the powerful lure of necromancy. Whatever your bent, necromantic energy is in your very soul.
    Class Skill: Heal
    Resistance: Cold
    Damage Reduction: X/Silver
    Pact Invocations: XXXX
    Blood Power: Lead the Damned (Su): At 1st level a necrotic blood pact warlock may channel negative energy as the cleric class feature, but only to command undead, as per the command undead feat. The warlock uses his class level as his effective cleric level and may use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + his charisma modifier.

    Deathly Frame (Ex): At 3rd level the warlock’s body becomes gaunt and sickly in appearance, but becomes fortified by necrotic energies. The warlock’s unarmed damage increases to 1d4 (small 1d3) and he permanently increases his strength by 1.

    Grasp of the Dead (Sp): At 9th level the warlock can cause a swarm of skeletal arms to burst from the ground to rip and tear at his foes. The skeletal arms erupt from the ground in a 20-foot-radius burst. Anyone in this area takes 1d6 points of slashing damage per warlock level.
    Those caught in the area receive a Reflex save for half damage. Those who fail the save are unable to move for 1 round. The DC of this save is equal to 10 + ½ warlock level + charisma modifier. The skeletal arms disappear after 1 round. The arms must burst up from a solid surface. At 9th level, you can use this ability once per day. At 17th level, you can use this ability twice per day. At 20th level, you can use this ability three times per day. This power has a range of 60 feet.

    Horde Master (Su): At 15th level the warlock may control HD of undead with his Lead the Damned ability equal to or less than twice his effective cleric level.

    Quasi-Lich (Ex): At 20th level, the warlock’s appearance shifts further into decay until he appears nearly the same as a lich. He gains the lich’s fear aura, an aura that grants all undead within 60 feet channel resistance +4, and he may now control HD of undead not to exceed thrice his effective cleric level. In addition, channeling necromantic energies through his body for so long has granted him a degree of regenerative ability allowing him to regrow any lost limb in 1d4 days.


    Protean Blood Pact
    Spoiler
    Show
    The power the suffuses your blood is that of the primordial energies that make up the natural world around you. Moreso even than the fey, these powers are intertwined with nature.
    Class Skill: Knowledge (Nature)
    Resistance: Shock
    Damage Reduction: X/Adamantine
    Pact Invocations: XXXX
    Blood Power: Elemental Nature (Su): At 1st level, a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier, you may wreathe your arms in an elemental damage type (acid, cold, fire, or shock). The type is chosen when the power is activated and can be changed only with another use of this ability. Unarmed strikes and held weapons deal +1d6 damage of the selected type. Eldritch blasts deal half again as much damage, rounded down, of this type. (Example, a Warlock that would normally deal 4d6 damage with an eldritch blast instead deals 6d6 damage, 2d6 of which is elemental damage. Eldritch blasts modified in this way cannot be modified by blast shape or eldritch essence invocations. This state lasts for 1 minute or until dismissed.

    Silverbane (Ex): At 3rd level, you gain a natural claw attack (1d6 for medium warlocks, 1d4 for small warlocks) which count as silver weapons. You also gain a +10 to intimidate rolls against any creature that has damage reduction -/silver and cannot contract lycanthropy.

    Whirlwind (Su): At 9th level, you gain the ability to turn into a 10-foot-high whirlwind once per day for 1 round per warlock level (see page 306 of the Pathfinder RPG Bestiary).

    Walker of the Sea and Sky (Su): At 15th level, you gain both swin and fly speeds equal to your base move speed. Your fly maneuverability is average.

    Elementalization (Su): At 20th level, you have two true forms. You may at will take on the form of an elemental of your size as per the spell elemental body II (or elemental body for small warlocks).


    Obviously these are still very much a work in progress, but I will update them as I finish developing the invocations and powers.
    Edit (2/15/12): Necrotic Blood Pact powers are now up!
    Edit (3/5/12): Aberrant Blood Pact powers are now up! Draconic Blood Pact powers are now up! Entropic Blood Pact powers are now up, except level 9.
    Edit (3/8/12): Entropic Blood Pact 9th level power is up!
    Edit (9/9/12): Daemonic Blood Pact powers are now up! Fey Blood Pact powers are now up! Protean Blood Pact powers are now up!

    Greater Reanimate
    You form a very powerful undead minion.
    Grade: Dark
    SLE: 8th
    Pact: Necrotic

    Tendrils of Soot
    You send darkness to hinder your foes and shadow your movements.
    Grade: Lesser
    SLE: 3rd
    Pact: Entropic
    One target must make a Will save or be blinded for one round. For one minute, whether the target saves or not, the area in a 20 foot radius of the target’s original position is hazy and dark granting partial concealment to any creature in the area or any creature being attacked by a creature in the area.
    Only one area may be created at any given time. If you create a new area of shadow before the old one expires the older area immediately ceases and the new area begins its duration.

    Dread Call
    You draw nearby undead inexorably towards yourself with a necromantic pulse of energy.
    Grade: Least
    SLE: 2nd
    Pact: Necrotic
    You issue a call to all undead within 1 mile per caster level. All undead affected by the invocation are drawn inexorably towards your location and know your exact location at any given time. This invocation lasts for 24 hours.
    Sentient undead are entitled to a Will save to resist the compulsion to find you, but know your location regardless of save result. Sentient undead who fail their save and nonsentient undead are forced to travel towards you by the most expedient means available to them, however sentient undead will not destroy themselves to accomplish this task. (IE – Vampires will not travel in sunlight) Nonsentient undead have no such self-preservation.
    Undead who reach you attack you upon sight and will not stop until you are dead or the duration ends at which time they return to normal behavior, which may still include attacking you. You may turn, rebuke, or command undead as normal when they are called by this invocation.
    Undead who do not reach you within 24 hours return to their lairs. The area of effect for this invocation moves with you and any undead who are moved outside this invocation’s range by your movement return to their lairs and are no longer affected.

    Grade: Greater
    SLE: 4th
    Pact: Eldritch (Shape)
    You shape eldritch energy into an arc roughly resembling a longbow. You may, as a full-round action make a single ranged touch attack to a target within 80ft. If you hit, you deal your eldritch blast damage.
    You may, if your base attack bonus is +6 or higher, as part of your full-round action, make as many attacks as your base attack bonus allows.

    Earthbolt
    You strike the ground, sending a ripple through the earth to strike an opponent.
    Grade: Lesser
    SLE: 3rd
    Pact: Protean

    Pact: Entropic
    Touched corpse disintegrates into nothingness, leaving clothes and gear undamaged. A creature destroyed in this way can only be returned to life by a true resurrection spell, a carefully worded wish followed by a resurrection spell, or a miracle.

    Sensory Deprivation
    You block one of your victim’s senses completely.
    Grade: Lesser
    SLE: 4th

    Edit (9/11/12): Put up the existing warlock invocations with their assigned pacts. Still have some formatting to do, but it's late. I'll finish tomorrow.
    Edit (9/12/12): Posted up the revised version of Hideous Blow and finished formatting existing warlock invocations. Added the first of the original invocations.

    Edit (1/24/13): A large selection of new invocations are now up.

    Hey, I would love any invocations you'd like to add. I like several of the ones in your link, so I can add those if you'd like. It's not much trouble to assign pacts to each one, but making up new ones is a complete pain.

    Also, necrotic blood pact powers are up.

    Im fine with you using any of mine, but you may want to ask permission for any that aren't, all i did was search and put all the links i found in one place.

    Coincidentally, some of these classes might have invocations you may like. Again you'll likely need permission to use and such.
    Mindscourge Invocations
    Ebon Initiate Invocations
    Servitor Invocations

    Good luck!

    Alright, I've got my laptop back with minimal loss to my data, which means I'm back in the game. I posted up the blood powers for Aberrant, Draconic, and Entropic. Many of these, particularly the draconic, are the same as the sorcerer bloodline abilities. I'm still sorting through all the invocations and building up new ones, but I should have the rest of the blood powers up soon and new invocations after that.

    Right, so due to life getting rather busy recently, I haven't really had much time to work on this project, however, I am back now, at least partially, and I'm posting up some much-needed updates to my Warlock. For today I have the Daemonic pact powers, but I should have much more ready for posting soon. ^_^

    Edit: There we go, last of the blood pact powers are up. Now for invocations!

    Alright!
    So all of the invocations which have been printed by WotC have been updated and labeled according to their pacts. Took me long enough. (Sorry!) I have begun posting up my original invocations, and I will post up anything which was offered to me by playgrounders, marked with appropriate pacts obviously.

    Here is where I'm really going to need help, however. I need to determine which invocations should be given as free invocations with each pact. Once that has been determined with at least some degree of balance, this alternate class will be ready for playtesting.

    Thanks everyone so much for having patience with me as I work on this project. I hope to add upwards of 100+ invocations for this update. Please, send me feedback! I hope this class provides much fun for sorcerers who want to be a little different. ^_^

    What if, instead of a whole new specialised class, you make an Archetype for the base warlock class? And of course within that archetype you can have all kinds of nifty newness.
    Farewell GITP! I may be around from time to time to read, but submitting new material won't be done with this crazy and complicated new Table code. I'll update my sig when I find a new (and usable) forum for homebrew.

    Well, partially because I've already done the legwork for it now, so there's not a good enough reason at this point to scrap all of my work, but mostly because I started out doing just that, and I found that, just as Paizo discovered with the samurai and the antipaladin, the changes inherent in this archetype were so all-consuming that the class had very little of the original left. Thus, they created alternate classes: classes which replaced an existing class outright without allowing for cross classing between the new class and the one it was meant to replace.

    Right, so after a long hiatus due to various factors, I'm back with more of my Warlock updates. I will have this class ready for playtesting very soon so anyone who is interested, please feel free to use this class for your own games and put your feedback here. Thanks to anyone who has been patient enough to keep checking this out and to any who decide to offer such feedback!

    A thought... healing blast. I recognize this as an attempt to combine Warlock with one of the prestige classes. There is, also a warlock class that grants them a healing blast.
    Internet currently unreliable, please have patience.

    We require additional gaming! ... and Pylons.

    What warlock needs are more options, instead of some tankiness she needs a few #/encounter abilities which make use of other actions than standard, that way she can get out of a tight spot by throwing down a few tricks at once and make heavy use of the action economy in short bursts.

    Correct me if I'm wrong Strormer, but it seems like your Warlock doesn't gain access to greater invocations until level 12.

    EDIT: I also couldn't figure what the secondary invocations count represent (starting at 3rd level).
