The Patron can certainly do so-- by killing the character. The patron has no explicit extra supernatural ability to do so within the rules and (even in a soul trade, if that's what happened) devils typically ask for things later (i.e. at the time of your death or contingent on some specific other thing the purchaser expects never to allow to happen). The ...

Already covered RAW, powers are not able to be stripped, as there is no class that can lose powers save the paladin, who's powers change form when he becomes an Oathbreaker. Lore states that it could be a good story hook, allowing for a very interesting story line that leads to all the things that were mentioned in the original question. Also Consider ...

It depends on the pact. While Theik is right about being part of the story/background of the warlock as opposed to a hard and fast. The designer did include an implied setting along with several options. The section on Sworn and Beholden reveals that the warlock abilities is based on a pact. A formal agreement between two parties. As it is an agreement than ...

From a purely RAW perspective, this is a pretty clear "no," as there isn't a rule saying that a warlock can lose their powers this way. It's even supported somewhat in the class description, where it says that warlocks who go around fighting against their patrons' influence in the world are good heroic concepts. But there's still a lot of leeway the DM has ...

The point of Eldritch Master is to give you the benefit of a Short Rest in a much shorter time (1 minute instead of 60). From your clarification in response to the first answer, your group is using a variant of Short Rest as 5-10 minutes, rather than 60. This greatly reduces the power of Eldritch Master, as it's now speeding up recovery by 5-10x rather ...

Short rests require an hour in which a character does nothing more strenuous than eating, drinking, reading, and tending to wounds. (PHB, page 186.) Eldritch Master takes one minute, and doesn't specify what you can and can't be doing in that time. It's unclear (i.e. open to DM ruling) if you have to spend that minute doing nothing except entreating ...

Eldritch Blast is not a weapon. It cannot be used as the weapon for other powers. This nullifies most of your followup questions. Ranged Basic Attacks are just a type of attack that anyone can perform, in the same fashion that a Melee Basic Attack can be performed by anyone, and which are commonly "granted" by other powers, or even other characters. By ...

You've already quoted the important bit: As far as the rules are concerned, only attacking or casting spells will break the sprite's invisibility. Your DM is free to rule however they want, of course, but strictly according to the rules the Help action won't make the sprite visible. This is one area that is more in the purview of the DM than the rules, ...

Why not add the great weapon master feat to polearm master? If you have advantage due to darkness + devil's sight, you likely get the hit off. So, with polearm master that's + 30 points of damage (just leave heavy armor mastery out). Or + 40 with reaction! You also might want to consider to have only an 18 Charisma, to get the war caster feat instead of one ...
