Re: So... Combat Dominance, what's it good for?

hmm.. My take on that is Orc's are stupid bullies, tactics and logic is for someone else. If 4 "humans" break into the room. Two of which have swords drawn, coming at you and your buddies, then guess who needs to be dealt with in the 6 secs after the door opens. Yes the dudes with the swor...

Produce Flame - Clarification?

Sometime I'm a little dense so I thought I'd check with some other folks.... The Spell reads... The flames can be used to attack. The caster can hurl them or use them to touch enemies. Successful touch attacks deal 1d4+1 point per two caster levels. The flame can be thrown up to 50 feet, igniting an...

Re: So... Combat Dominance, what's it good for?

Yes, he can kill one of the Orcs on his turn, but there's nothing he can do to stop the Orc from just casually traipsing by and killing the squishy classes. I think you trying to put to much detail into the combat system. It's 6 seconds of abstract combat. If a fighter says I'm holding back the lin...

Finely Crafted Armor 16.6 CKG question

Does chart 16.6 page 240 of the CKG seem in error with regards to the EV's listed? I was just looking over it and I can't figure out what was meant. The Elf Mail Shirt is listed as 10lbs and 5 EV here... Other armor is also listed oddly? Did the table get messed up or do I just not understand.

Re: Importing Surge value

That's an interesting idea, and I may well try it. Currently, my house rule is that all healing spells go for the full amount if they are cast in a non-threatening situation. If the caster cannot relax and concentrate on maximizing the spell (e.g., in combat), then a roll is made. oh I like that! I...

Yup. Troll Lords are working on it.

Re: Familiars

Next I'm wondering about Cleric/Druid Familiars. I was thinking of a 3rd level Druid spell to promote an Animal Friend to Familiar status.

Also should there be a limit on the Hit Point bonus received from Familiars? [Does Orcus have a Ancient Red Dragon Familiar that gives him 408 HP? ]
