Another experiment



Warlock

Diminished Spellcasting: A warlock may cast one fewer spell of each level than normal. If this reduces the number to 0, he may cast spells of that level only if his Charisma allows bonus spells of that level.

Deliver Cantrip (Su): Whenever the warlock uses a 1st-level bloodline power which can be used 3+Cha times per day, all targets of the power are also affected as if the warlock had cast one cantrip on them, even if it could not normally affect multiple targets.

Cantrip Enhancement (Su): At 2nd level, whenever the warlock casts a sorcerer cantrip that deals or reduces damage, he multiplies the amount by his sorcerer level (before applying any other modifiers). If the cantrip has a HD limit, increase that limit by his sorcerer level -1. If the spell provides a bonus on certain rolls, increase the bonus by +1 for every three sorcerer levels. For the purposes of determining save DCs and overcoming effects like Spell Resistance and sphere of invulnerability, he may treat his cantrips as spells of a level one lower than the highest level of spells he can cast.

Pact (Su): At 4th level the warlock receives Eldritch Heritage (Aberrant, Abyssal, Fey, Infernal or Shadow) as a bonus feat. He may instead choose a Wildblooded variation of any of these bloodlines if he wishes. He may use his Cantrip Enhancement ability to deliver cantrips through the bloodline power granted by this feat. In addition he adds Demonic Obedience, Improved Eldritch Heritage and Greater Eldritch Heritage to the list of bonus feats for his bloodline.

Blood Hex: At 6th level the warlock learns one hex as a witch of his class level, using his Charisma modifier in place of his Intelligence modifier for all effects of the hex that would normally be based on Intelligence. He may use any hexes which requires a standard action to use with his Deliver Cantrips ability, treating it as a bloodline power.

Eldritch Extension (Su): At 8th level the range of the warlock's cantrips improves by one step, following the progression Personal->Touch->Close->Medium->Long. If the cantrip had a fixed range, it is instead doubled. This benefit also applies to any bloodline power used to deliver the effect.

Spell Melding (Su): At 10th level, once per round, whenever the warlock casts a spell, all targets of are also affected as if the warlock had used one of his cantrips, 1st-level bloodline powers or witch hexes on them, even if it could not normally affect multiple targets (this still expends a use of the ability, if it has limited uses).

Rapid Invocation (Su): At 12th level the warlock may reduce the action required to use any of his cantrips, bloodline powers or witch hexes to a swift action, as if the Quicken Spell metamagic feat were applied to it but without increasing effective spell level.

Major Blood Hex: At 14th level the warlock learns one major hex as a witch of his class level, using his Charisma modifier in place of his Intelligence modifier for all effects of the hex that would normally be based on Intelligence.

Improved Eldritch Extension (Su): At 16th level the range of the warlock's cantrips improves by two steps, following the progression Personal->Touch->Close->Medium->Long. If the cantrip had a fixed range, it is instead tripled. This benefit also applies to any bloodline power used to deliver the effect. This replaces the benefit of Eldritch Extension.

Forbidden Knowledge (Ex): At 18th level the sorcerer learns one or two spells known, as with the Expanded Arcana feat but with one exception: the spells can be taken from any spell list which includes 9th-level spells, not just the sorcerer list.
