    3E/3.5 Why do AoO's exist? Would it wreck 3.5 if I removed them from my game?

    Can your game survive without AoOs? You betcha. It will work pretty well in fact. But the poor little wizard behind your front-line fighters will be SOL when the burly Orc walks around the Fighter and pounds him into mage-paste. So it will likely affect your players tactics.

    Eadric et. al. (The Paladin and his Friends).

    Psuedonatural Solars (with tentacles instead of those horrible feathered wings)?

    Feats to make unarmed strike deal slashing or piercing damage?

    The title pretty much says it all, but are there any feats (or other methods) for allowing an unarmed strike to deal slashing or piercing damage?

    Wildshape, what's the current ruleset for it?

    So with all of the errata and wierdness going on about wildshape, and given that I'm thinking of playing a druid in the near future (or Daggerspell shaper to be more precise), what are the current rules regarding wildshape? I can't get to the wizards site or boards from where I am at the...

    3E/3.5 Devoted Defender 3.5?

    Take a look at the Knight base class from PHB 2. You'll find quite a few of the class features mimic some of the old DD abilities.

    Help pricing a magic item.

    I'm looking to price an item that I've used as treasure in the past. It functions just like an Aureon's Spellshard from Eberron, with the following additional ability: Spells can be removed or added by the item's owner. The item can still only hold 500 pages worth of spells at any one time...

    UMD and the Craft(Alchemy) skill

    The Craft(Alchemy) skill states that you must be a spellcaster in order to use it. Can a successful Use Magic Device check to emulate spell casting ability allow a non-spellcaster to use the Craft(Alchemy) skill?

    Suggest a book to me.

    So, I, like many others here, like to read. I'll read just about anything, and give just about any author a try. I'm looking to add something from specific genres to my reading queue. I'm burnt out on modern-day fantasy (early Anita Blake, Dresden Files, etc.), and would like to add some good...

    Moorcock's Elric saga, do they get better?

    So, based on the suggestions of a few folks here, I've plowed through the first 2 Elric books. At this point, I'm feeling a little bit like Job, with Moorcock as the Devil. Rather than continuing in good faith that these books become better (and potentially wasting my time), I figured I'd ask...

    [October] What are you wearing?

    That's right, I said it. ;)

    3E/3.5 Good Melee Builds For Low-Wealth 3.5 Campaigns?

    Are you sure? I seem to remember looking at that and seeing that it was mostly a useless class unless you were destroying magic items all the time. I'll have a look at it when I get home, I guess. I'll second ThirdWizard on the Cleric idea, although any class with spellcasting abilities...

    3E/3.5 Good Melee Builds For Low-Wealth 3.5 Campaigns?

    Er, oddly enough, the Forsaker isn't really "low magic". Most of his class abilities depend on him destroying magic items, which generally aren't very common in a "low magic" world.

    Greater Manyshot and Skirmish (or Sneak Attack)

    Quick question. Are the arrows fired from a Greater Manyshot considered a volley? In other words, do you get full Sneak Attack or Skirmish on each of them, or only one?

    Head of the class (stonegod judging)[Concluded]

    When you enter the back room, you see the old man seated at a long table, his cane across his lap, his hat in his hands. He is impatiently fidgeting with his hat. He looks up at your entry and says, "Hulloo, hulloo! Have a seat. We'll wait until everyone is here, as I hate repeating myself."...

    Changes to the assassin

    I was looking over the assassin the other day, and aside from the fluff, couldn't see any reason for the Alignment and Special pre-requisites. The PrC makes an excellent spy, scout, or thief, just as well as it makes an assassin. As such, I propose the following changes: 1. Either eliminate...

    Polymorphic Transfer feat (vetoed)

    I noticed that, as we don't have Savage Species available for the "Assume Supernatural Ability" feat, and that the Psionic SRD has an equivalent feat, there was a hole in the arcanists bag of tricks. So here's a feat to fix it. I limited it to polymorph and polymorph any object to keep Elan...

    Custom Spells (Revised 7-18-2006)

    I've got a 3rd level Kenku wizard in the wings, awaiting the time when we get to bring in 3rd level characters. So I thought I take advantage of the wait and put up some custom spells I'd like for him to have/design. All spells will, of course, be private to that character. Bone Puppet is the...

    Looking for a druid spell.

    I've seen it somewhere, but can't remember where. I think it was 7th or 8th, and it was esentially a teleport spell that moved you from one spot on land to another spot on land within a certain radius (measured in miles?). Can anyone fill me in on the name of the spell and where I can find it...

    Enchanting Improvised Weapons?

    So, I've got a few questions regarding magical weapons. More specifically, what can be enchanted as a weapon? Can anything that can be used as an improvised weapon be enchanted as one? (i.e. a +1 flaming shovel) What about the Justicar's (PrC from Complete Warrior) ability to wield masterwork...

    Is material from Unearthed Arcana allowed?

    Specifically, the Whirling Frenzy variant Barbarian ability?
