Homebrew Warlock Invocations Compendium(WIP)
SpoilerGreetings once again everyone who vies for the Lazy Manís World Champion Belt! Iím here once again with another Conglomeration for the chronically lazy and/or those who wish to clean up their Bookmark bar a tad. Once again, I take little to no credit for all that is within this post and am simply attempting to make navigation slightly easier for certain themes. This Conglomeration focuses on Warlock Invocations. If it has eldritch blasts, warlock class options, or new invocations, expect to see it here. If you PM me a link or post it right here and I'll get it up. Without further ado (or a ďactually there is more adoĒ joke) I present the Warlock Options Conglomeration.
Additionally, please direct me to more material so I can add it to this Conglomeration.
WIP:: This one is kinda rough due to the amount of copy/pasta needed and cleaning up of invocations that don't have much but a few lines to them. This will probably be a long ongoing project, but I wanted to get it up.
The following are new invocations for warlocks. Invocations will have their source listed as superscript after their name with the superscript as a link to the owner's page.

Archetypes, Favored Class Bonuses
Reserved for more archetypes, racial favored class bonuses, and whatever else will be generated.
Favored Class Options
Fetchling- The fetchling warlock's eldritch blast gains +1/2 points of damage (maximum 2x Charisma modifier) when both he and his target/targets are in a dimly lit or darker area.
Invocations: When the shadowbound warlock gains access to a new grade of invocations, they must select an invocation that is related to darkness thematically as their first. The invocations that meet these prerequisites are listed below. This replaces the warlock's invocation class feature.
Light Aversion: The shadowbound warlock may never use an item, cast a spell, or activate an ability with the light descriptor.
Beshadowed Resilience (Su): At 3rd level, once per day as an immediate action, the shadowbound warlock can enter a trance that grants him fast healing 2 for 20 rounds (2 minutes). At 7th level, and every 4 levels thereafter, the rate of this fast healing increases by 2. This ability can only be activated while in an area that is dimly lit or darker. If, while activated, the shadowbound warlock enters an area that is brighter than dimly lit the fast healing granted by this class feature is suspened until he enters an area that is dimly lit or darker. While the fast healing is suspended, the duration is still counting down, but no healing occurs. This replaces the Fiendish Resilience ability.
Fetchling Resistance (Su): At 5th level, the shadowbound warlock increased reistance to cold and electricity. He increase his energy resistance by 5 against the energy types. This energy resistance increases by 5 at levels 9, 13, and 17. At 20th level, the warlock becomes immune to the selected energy types. Whenever his cold or electricity resistance would reduce damage taken by those energy types to zero, he instantly heals hit points equal to the spell level of the effect that he resisted. If the effect has no effective spell level, he heals 5 hit points. This replaces the energy resistance class feature.
Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: The bladelock is proficient with simple and martial weapons. He is also proficient with light and medium armor and light shields.
The somatic components a bladelock uses for his invocations are very simple, this allows him to suffer no Arcane Spell Failure when wearing medium or lighter armor.
Fell Fighting: The bladelock can take feats that require a certain number of levels in the fighter class as if he were a fighter equal to his warlock level. Additionally, his Base Attack Bonus is considered to be equal to his warlock level for the purpose of meeting the prerequisites for feats that have a Base Attack Bonus requirement.
Shadow Blow Eldritch Blast (Sp): The bladelock gains the knowledge of the shadow blow blast shape invocation at 1st level. He may never learn any other blast shape invocation. His eldritch blast cannot be used as a ranged touch attack.
In addition, when using the shadow blow invocation, if his regular melee attack deals damage, he gains a bonus on his eldritch blast damage equal to his Charisma modifier.
Invocations: At levels 5, 10, and 15, the bladelock does not gain an invocation. He instead gains a bonus fighter feat.

Re: Homebrew Warlock Invocations Compendium(WIP)
Here is some stuff from my extended signature:
Split Blast: Trade power for multi-targeting with this blast shape invocation... most useful in combination with eldritch essence invocations that produce an effect in addition to the initial damage. Also includes a rather interesting NPC who uses this blast shape to aid him in his work as a rat-catcher.
Enhance Familiar and Imbue Familiar with Invocation Equivalents to Familiar buffs (and one utility that is very much like a defensive buff) for members of Invocation using classes who have familiars. Made to synergize with my Coward's-Strike Warlock.*
And for clarify, the PrC
Coward's-Strike Warlock: Warlock specific version of my Artillery Mage. Same deal: Invisible familiar sees them, you shoot them without coming out from behind cover.
*Note that the Enhance Familiar thing rolls three spells into one, which is fair to me, since you have to spend a feat to get a familiar as a warlock anyway, and warlocks get very few invocations compared to how many spells even a sorcerer gets.
