Re: Resurrection question

Thank you guys for your opinions I'm thinking if the campaign makes it into those Levels i'm going to talk the CK about the spells and probably pulling them out of the spell pool and finding suitable exchanges, possibly exchanging resurrect for an offensive spell and making true res only be true res...

Re: Resurrection question

Resurrection question

Resurrection is common across the fantasy game world whether it be video games or table top games but I was having a thought, as I'm currently playing a cleric of Thor who believes in the Nordic Pantheon. Anyways it is more of a wondering than a thought, given that the Norse Mythos places importance...

Re: Gripe: book spines not glued

Re: Monk Fast Movement

My last PC was combination of monk, barbarian, and cavalier. I wanted the inspire and intimidate abilities but the unarmed/armored aspects of the monk. Very effective in combat, close up. Useless at range... until he learned he could fit in a catapult. One of my goals in my current campaign is to h...

It comes up quite a bit if your GM doesn't assume that PCs can magically carry/obtain large amounts of food & water during extended overland adventures.
That is what decanters of endless water and rings of nourishment are for

Purify any liquid should "fix" that liquid and make it "safe to drink". So if beer is toxic for any reason to the cleric (which for all known races it is not) then I'd say yes.. so since this is a faith opinion or goal or mission it is simply a change beer or wine to water spell which would be a ta...

Re: Spell traps, another twist.

I used to do things like this with layered illusions and some low-tech cheating like color filters and mirrors so, even after using dispel magic (or whatever), they still weren't sure if they'd gotten it all. Even worse in S3 where real tech is involved. Clever using the RL non-magic effects. S3, I...

Question on Purify Water/food

If you were playing a cleric class that believed that alcohol is poison to the body (not terribly far fetched since it is quite easy to overdose on and addiction is a thing in our world) would you allow the cleric to cast purify food/water on ale to turn it into water?
