    Default Warlock Fiend Patron - Alternate Expanded Spell Lists

    One of my favorite classes so far in 5e is the Warlock. However, looking upon the expanded spell list for the Fiend, I was somewhat disappointed. It's not that I dislike the expanded spell list, and I understand to put more than one expanded spell list in would be unnecessary, but I feel it doesn't fit some of the major fiends you would forge a pact with. So, I have taken it upon myself to make some alternative expanded spell lists for the Fiend patron, to better fit some of the powerful fiends you may be selling your soul to.


    When choosing the Fiend Patron, a Warlock may either choose the normal Fiend expanded spell list, or choose one of the ones below.

    These are pretty cool, and it seems pretty much impossible to really break balance by adding only these few spells, so I would definitely allow these almost out of hand.

    Creating new spell lists for respective Patrons is a fun concept (if not one I've seen multiple times), but the difficult part about them is that certain spells go nuts when given to a Warlock.

    For instance, you should be cautious with giving the warlocks most minionmancy spells.

    Conjure Animals becomes broken when you can cast them multiple times per short rest as a 5th-level spell. You should probably neg that from the list, add in something else, and instead homebrew an Eldritch Invocation (Pre-requiste: Your patron is Baphomet or Yeenoghu or some other patron related to beasts) that allows you to cast Conjure Animals once per day.

    Also, isn't Counterspell already in the generic Warlock spell list? I don't think it has any meaning to include it in the expanded list.

    Oh, alright. I wasn't thinking of how crazy it could get. I'll try and replace those and counterspell. Many thanks for pointing those things out!
