What if you're a self made man and you worship your creator?!

...

I really like it. My personal favorite aspect of it is that your patron will give you a random assortment of spells. While reading this I had this idea of "Aspects" within a more primitive world. Small communities have different aspects which exist nearby - some might be demonic, others angelic, nature etc. And the warlocks act as sort of shamans/clerics.

Really cool idea!

Thanks! I wanted to make them more in line with classic Magic Users while making the Patron a central thing.

Had a few quick questions about the warlock class. In the explanation of the class it mentions this:

"Also unlike Magic-Users Warlocks can’t read magic,
create spell scrolls, and learn spell from any other
Magic-User (Not even from other Warlocks)."


And then later on mentions this:

"Warlocks may copy on their spellbook from another
Warlock or by studying another Warlock's spellbook"

So my question is can they learn from others and read their books or they can't?

Warlocks prepare their spells the same way as Clerics, they do not write them in spellbooks.
They also can't prepare scrolls and can't cast read magic as it serves no purpose for them.

Remember that a Warlock's Spellbook does not contain spells, instead it contains the process for Fast Sacrificial Request.

They can read and learn other Warlock's Spellbooks, but what they will read and learn as explained above are not spell but Fast Sacrificial Request.
Adding a spell to their Spellbook takes 200gp and 1
day per Spell Level. If taught by another Warlock it
takes only one day plus the amount of gold
This is an error that soon will be corrected.

I should probably change "Spellbook" for some other name.

EDIT: R2 is now on the Showcase with a tweaked version of the Spellbook and Fast Personal Sacrifice.
