This pdf clocks in at 4 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page SRD, leaving us with 1 page of content, so let’s take a look!

This review was moved up in my reviewing queue as a prioritized review at the request of my patreons.

Chilling Blast and Poisoning Blast require chill touch and poison spray as well as eldritch blast, and allow you to change the damage of the blast to cold or poison damage, respectively. Eternal laughter lets you cast hideous laughter once per long rest interval via a warlock spell slot. Devil’s Darkness requires the devil’s sight eldritch invocation and lets you cast darkness without using a warlock spell slot, with a unique recharge mechanic: When centering the spell on yourself, you can regain it on a short rest as well; otherwise, it requires a long rest to use it again. I like this.

Starting at 5th level, the warlock may choose acidic blood, which inflicts your Charisma modifier in acid damage on targets inflicting slashing or piercing damage upon you with natural attacks. This should take reach/range into account and only apply to melee attacks – after all, a manticore’s spikes are natural, right? And it doesn’t make sense for the blood to damage a target far away. There is also a means to grant yourself advantage on one Charisma (Intimidation) check per short or long rest interval. Flavorwise, that one makes you look like a fiend, which makes me think that it may have been intended for the Fiend patron only – it doesn’t make much sense for Archfey-warlocks to emulate a fiend. (And yes, this is fluff-nitpicking. I know.)

The 7th level invocation Undersea Horror nets you swim speed and proficiency in Strength (Athletics) checks made to swim. If you’re already proficient in Athletics, does that stack? I assume no. You can also breathe underater and cast water breathing once per long rest interval as a warlock spell. 9th level unlocks the option to use teleportation circle via a warlock spell slot, and adds teleport to the spell list, allowing you to take it at 13th level as Mystic Arcanum. Fiendish accuracy lets you, once per short rest interval, cast true strike sans using a warlock spell slot as a bonus action, applying its effects this turn. There is one invocation that requires 11th level to take, as well as dispel magic: Arcane nullification makes the spell treated as though it were cast with a spell slot equal to half your level, rounded down. This one should specify the cap at 9th level, obvious though that may seem.

Conclusion:
Editing and formatting are very good on a formal level, with hyperlinks added where applicable. On a rules-language level, there are very minor nitpicks here. Layout adheres to a two-column full-color standard. The pdf has a bookmark for credits and content, in spite of its brevity.

As a whole, I like Dale McCoy Jr.’s warlock invocations. The class feature isn’t exactly the most exciting thing about the class, but what we get here, is, as a whole, interesting. Now, you probably won’t be blown away by this one, but if you're looking for an inexpensive way to diversify warlock options, this may be worth checking out. My final verdict will clock in at 3.5 stars, rounded up due to the low price point.

Endzeitgeist out.

With PF2e being worked on, we will be working heavily on 5e. What would you like to see?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Personally, I'm most likely to pick up more stuff for the Warlock, since that's what I'm playing. (Tiefling w/ Pact of the Tome, specifically.) And I do like more Eldritch Invocations. XD

Specifically, I'm most fond of passive and at-will powers. I don't like Invocations that let you cast a spell with a warlock slot (that's competing with your entire spell list and your incredibly limited spell slots, and not worth an Invocation), that give you access to spells from other patron lists (let's keep 'em unique), or that are 1/long rest powers. Modifying Eldritch Blast's damage type is also a little iffy - I mean, it's good if you have a theme you're going for, but let's not kid ourselves, its natural force damage means it's already reliable and anything else is probably a downgrade. XD Since all of your spell slots for a rest can be burned in one turn for the entire early game, I *really* prefer Invocations that give you other things to do when you're not using slots or casting a damage cantrip.

My ideal product would probably have a balance of patron-specific choices (for both flavor and utility) and options that any Warlock could take.
