The warlock fills a special place in the party as the arcane caster who can go all day and all night in exchange for the sometimes horrific high level powers the wizard and co get. Unfortunately there is no good alternative to the warlock that fulfills the same role. Until now:

[SIZE="4"]Blessed Soul[/SIZE]
“A warlock you call me a warlock? Care to retract that statement, paladin?”
-A blessed soul casting archons wings


Warlocks draw their power from sources dark and unholy but who ever said there was no celestial counterpart? Meet the blessed soul, who draws his powers from the upper planes.

Blessed Souls in the world: Frequently mistaken for actual warlocks a celestial warlock is thus often treated as such. [S]Currently they are planning a publicity campaign to be launched as soon as someone finds a better name[/S] they found one in blessed souls.

Prestige classing: Due to the celestial nature of the blessed soul's powers all recorded attempts to add hellfire to the celestial blast ability resulted in the caster getting hit by divine lightning. In no instance has the body been found
