Pact of the Gauntlet[edit]

As an action you can summon a number of gauntlets equal to your proficiency. The appearance of your pact gloves is at your discretion, they are made of a translucent material that cover your hands and armor, if any. Your gloves disappear if they are more than 5 feet away from you and/or still for 1 minute or more (if they don't move for more than one minute they will disappear no matter where they are, you can't strangle someone because it would mean that your gloves have to stay still for more than one minute). They also disappear if you use this feature again, if you dismiss them (no action required), or if you are knocked unconscious or die. The gauntlets cannot be forced off of your hand without your consent. While active and worn you get the following benefits:

-You count as one size larger when determining your carrying capacity and when grasping objects and/or creatures and determining the weight you can push, drag, or lift.

-You have advantage if you need to roll to move, carry, and grab objects and/or creatures.

-You ignore the somatic component of the warlock spells you cast.

-Your unarmed strike count as magical weapons for the purpose of overcoming resistances and immunities

As your action you can control your gloves, which can move up to thirty feet away from you at a point you can see, and to control them you must move your own hands, they can be used to manipulate objects, pull levers, open an open object such as doors or chests, use magic items*, attack with weapons with which you have proficiency*. Gloves can occupy your space without hindering your movements, they also occupy different spaces if there is a distance of more than 10 feet between them, but only one space if they are 5 feet apart. Any damage done to the gloves will be transferred to you.

*requires concentration, also every roll, if needed, will have disadvantage.

Eldritch invocations[edit]

Battle Gloves[edit]

Prerequisites: Pact of the gauntlet feature

When you wear your gloves your unarmed strike does your proficiency+Charisma modifier+1 in bludgeoning damage. You can shape your gauntlets' knuckles, once per long rest, into claws or spikes, changing in slashing or piercing damage type. After one hour they will regain their normal appereance. You can also cast eldritch blast trough your unarmed strike. Meaning your unarmed strike deals 1d8 damage. Any Eldritch Invocations that affect eldritch blast affect this infused strike as well; except any that affect range, such as Eldritch Spear. You can take this elditch invocation and still gain its benefits without taking eldritch blast as a cantrip; however, until you take the eldritch blast cantrip, you can only use the unarmed strike version.

Your gauntlets count as one extra spell slot, whose level equals half, rounded down, of the maximum level of your warlock spell slots. It can be used to cast one spells that you prepared. You regain this slot after a long rest.

Defensive Gloves[edit]

Once summoned, you can, as an action, use it to make a ranged attack targeting a creature or an object that you can see in an area of 15 feet around you or 10 feet around the shield, if it is not near you, after being thrown it will try to return to you, except if it had already moved and in that case it will fall to the ground in a 15 feet area around you. This ranged attack deals 1d4 bludgeoning.

Charging Gloves[edit]

You may use your action to make one of your gloves move a minimum of 15 feet in any direction as long as it is in a straight line, all obstacles in the glove's path take 2d6+your Strength modifier in bludgeoning damage, if they hold a simple melee weapon that lacks the two-handed or heavy property, the damage becomes of the weapon's damage type. At level 9 you can add your Charisma modifier instead of your Strength modifier.

Improved Battle Gloves[edit]

After one hour they will regain their normal appereance. If you wear your magical gloves, you can use two-handed weapons with one hand; two of your gloves combined counts as two hands when it comes to carrying and attacking with weapons. In addition, any roll with advantage gained from the gloves can also add the proficiency. You can cast more proficiently eldritch blast trough your unarmed strike. Meaning your unarmed strike deals 1d10 damage. If you expend one of your warlock spell slot you gain a number of attacks per turn that equal the number of beams per eldritch blast.
