I've sent this along to 1 DM but i'll put it up for more people to see...

It would be nice if you added invocs or changed existing invocs to allow good/fey warlocks to use some *evil* invocations.

Something along the lines of:
lvl 2 invoc summon the dead...instead of summoning only skeletons maybe add choice to summon pixie or other lesser fey creature
lvl 3 invoc turn into a hellhound...instead let us turn into a moon dog/blink dog or some other equivalent?
lvl 3 invoc summon great shades...instead again let us also summon some fey/greater fey of 16 HD equivalent?

without these additions i dont see myself much using these..and it is a shame for they are pretty powerful invocations.

thank you!

Imo, this could be changed with really minimal effort on the staff (certainly less effort than creating new spells):

1) Add in Lesser Planar Binding as a level 2 invocation. Now you've got planar-thematic summons (and warlocks are very planar themed) for all the pacts.

2) Change hellspawned grace to polymorph self. Add in a hellhound shape to polymorph self if we want to. Now we have multiple shapes for multiple pacts again.

3) This one is the only one that really would need a custom spell. Maybe a druid (level 8)/warlock (tier 3) spell that summons 3d2-2 aka 3-4 (dryads [hybrid casting+melee], pixies [pure casting], and/or Fomorians [pure melee]) fey creatures. Like Army of Dead, the creatures conjured could be chosen at random, picked from the list in parentheses. It could use the same scaling as Army of Dead, with each creature being HD 15 (the first creature being HD 16). Obviously, spell focus conjuration would scale it just like Army of Dead with necromancy.

The script could be (presumably) copied from Army of Dead, the creatures would just need to be replaced with a mix of custom creatures.

Though, the only question is who would do this?

http://molivero.com/dndtools/USRD/srd/m ... tions.html <= Some list with Warlock Invocations

Least Invocation:
Summon Swarm - You summon a swarm of bats, rats, or spiders.

Lesser Invocations
:
Spider-Shape - you become a spider and we could use the in game spell we already have.
