Warlocks

Post  DM Drachen on Wed Apr 04, 2012 5:45 pm

I would really like to see warlocks as a subclass. Thats my main suggestion, but this is what I've seen another server done for them.

The used the main class of it to be bard. Except, they took the feat bard song away. From there, the warlock gets a staff in which all their power comes from. They shoot a ray of frost spell (except it changes color and damage types and amounts according to what warlock they are). The damage for it I saw was the same amount of a rogue sneak attack. 1d6/X levels. They also got differant spells on the staff according to what warlock type they were, at differant levels (for example dispalcement at level 6).

Oath Breaker has its own subclass?

Or dose D&D use the 'Bewitched' definition?

Born of a supernatural bloodline, a warlock seeks to master the perilous magic that suffuses his soul. Unlike sorcerers or wizards, who approach arcane magic through the medium of spells, a warlock invokes powerful magic through nothing more than an effort of will. By harnessing his innate magical gift through fearsome determination and force of will a warlock can perform feats of supernatural stealth, beguile the weak-minded, or scour his foes with blasts of eldritch power.

Above is copied from 'Complete Arcane' resource book that debuted the warlock, can find much more in that book there Very Happy

I'm curious.

In a way, most warlocks are though to have fiendish blood or fey blood in their ancestory, which is where they derive there power, much like a sorcerer and draconic blood...

This sounds a lot like how i already rp.

also i have seen the system he is talking about. it works very well however i would suggest using a wiget rather than a staff as its supposed to be a power and not an item; and a staff would not allow for weaponry.

Warlocks are born, not made. Some are the descendants of people who trafficked with demons and devils long ago. Some seek out the dark powers as youths, driven by ambition or the desire for power, but a few blameless individuals are simply marked out by the supernatural forces as conduits and tools. The exact nature of a warlock’s origin is up to the player to decide; just as a sorcerer is not beholden to the magic-wielding ancestor that bequeathed his bloodline with arcane power, a warlock is not bound to follow the source that gifted him with magic Warlocks are not half-fiends or tiefl ings by default (although many creatures of those kinds become some of the most powerful and terrifying representatives of the class). The mark that the supernatural powers leave ontheir servants is often a mark in the soul, not the fl esh. In fact, many warlocks are created by nonevil powers— wild or fey forces that can be every bit as dangerous as demons or devils. Whatever their origin, warlocks are widely feared and misunderstood. Most are wanderers who rarely stay in one place for long
