      I keep getting a messages that says "it is not possible to take a short rest now" but I haven't used my allotted rests for the day yet. Does anyone know what I need to do?

        One short rest per long rest is just not enough for warlocks to be balanced.
        We need at least 2/LR and even better 3/LR.

        I love warlocks, but right now they are just eldritch blast machienes/ worse archers.
