So, are they feeding the lone-wolf?

I think those types have been always around; they're not a result of the rules but of a certain type of players. :)

I agree 100% on that too, but I have to admit that I don't like this type of player on my table. I am a little annoyed since it seems like they're being stimulated with all this egoist, secrets pacts and devil stuff. For me it's hard to imagine a warlock (especially a tiefling one) integrated with a "good heroes" group. It's not like having a assassin or a rogue at the party, we're talking about a "infernal descendant", someone with friend in REALLY low places or BOTH. :eek:

I do think Warlocks will be the class to watch for power abuses at first, though.

I mean, it's a cool class, and as a result, it's likely to push the envelope of balance farther than most others, more likely to be played by those who push the balance, etc.

I don't think 4e will fall into the CoDzilla trap of giving support characters a lot of appealing abilities to persuade people to choose them, though. I'm pretty confident for it right out the gate.

You may want to take a harder look at the guy in the party who commits actual murder for money.

I get the impression warlocks can make pacts with three types of entity - Satan, Cthulhu or the Queen of the Fairies. The last kind isn't that scary.

Is it wrong that I've had nightmares about all three?

Those "I kill anyone for a price" guys usually don't live long in a group of heroes (here, at least). The typical assassin PC that I've saw all those years have a strong purpose for killing, usually the murder is the climax of a entire plot.

For those who plans to argument "Ok, but the basic life of an adventurer is go into a dungeon/forest/abandoned shrine/__wherever__ and kill everyone there for the treasure and experience".... please try to separate the traditional monster hack and slash of the evil of no scrupulous background of a cold (evil) murderer and some badass warlock/tiefling.
