Do you want to see more Invocation-based classes?

Meh...I don't play them/don't care either way.
HELLS YEAH!!!
Sounds like it's not worth the trouble....
I'll get to work on it when I can.
No.
That depends on their quality.

So far, there are two base classes which use invocations: The Dragonfire Adept and the Warlock.

Is there any possibility of new Base or Prestige Classes which uses the invocation system?

Possible Base Classes:

Soulshaper, Psionically Incarnum flavored invokers

Chaplain, Divinely empowered warrior

Invoker, another psionically flavored class

Eldritch Soldier, because every spellcasting class needs a martially focused companion (may need extra balancing)

Possible Prestige classes:

Acolyte of Necrosis, Necromantic Warlock

Soul Invoker, Warlock Conjurer

Fury Scion...ANGRYYYYYYYY

Eldritch Shadow, sneaky warlock

Caustic...Life sucks when your blood turns to acid.


Overall, I like what the PRC has done with invocations, but I could really see more classes that use them existing. I'm not trying to be pushy, and I'll see what I can code for them, but I would also encourage others to come up and see if they could add more invoking classes to the PRC.

Soulshaper is actually incarnum flavored in its other half.  (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_of_Incarnum ).  It's also incomplete.  Incarnum as a whole would be fairly cool, and I don't think overly difficult to implement if you're willing to streamline soulmelding, but it's still a fairly large undertaking.  You'd probably want to script the official incarnum-using base classes first.

Invoker isn't subsantially different from warlock, but trades the infernal heritage flavored class features for bonus feats to improve blasting.  Hmm.  That's a notion.  Developing a framework for the implementation of alternate class features.

Are any of those even canon classes?

Erm...I'm not sure. I know a few of them aren't.

EDIT: It appears none of them are...there are rather few invoking classes out there from WoTC...

WotC released very little* outside the core as Open Game Content (OGC), so if it's exotic and on the dandwiki, it's almost certainly homebrew.  (Even a lot of errata to OGC ended up closed content.)

Scrap that.  Where DOES Ultimate Ranger come from?

No clue. I am pretty sure it's not remotely OGC.

Sorry, that was something else before being scrapped.  I thought Ultimate Ranger was the Ultimate Ranger from the "Ultimate" homebrew series.  The OGC was just referring to wiki license compatibility.  The PRC pack has a ton of Closed Content.
