Vampires Inmune to Curses? Permanent Protection Against Sun? How?


Rules Questions


I was overpowered by a bestow curse Yesterday, which drains, or damages, ability points.

Im supposed to be inmune to that, but my GM said it is a curse.

The EFFECT drains and dmgs my ability score, i SHOULD BE inmune.

So am i or not?

And the other question, i found this

http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/ultimateMagic/spells/protectivePenumbra. html#_protective-penumbra

is there a way to craft a ring with this Permanent Spell?

How much GP will it cost in the market?

THANKS! and sorry for my bad english

As far as what i was able to find...the stat reduction of curses is a numerical penalty effect and not ability damage or drain. so yes, you would be effected by that as far as i know.

Bestow Curse doesn't cause ability damage or drain, its wording says "decreases 1 ability score by 6". So technically it would still affect you. What I'm curious about is how you're immune to ability damage/drain in the first place?


Spell level x caster level x 2,000 gp2

2 If a continuous item has an effect based on a spell with a duration measured in rounds, multiply the cost by 4. If the duration of the spell is 1 minute/level, multiply the cost by 2, and if the duration is 10 minutes/level, multiply the cost by 1.5. If the spell has a 24-hour duration or greater, divide the cost in half.

2 x 3 x 2,000 x 1.5 = 18,000 gp for your ring.

Sounds reasonable, but check with your GM as this is a custom item. Compare Lenses of Darkness which give only immunity to light blindness (and do nothing for undead creatures' sunlight vulnerability) and which cost 12,000 gp.


Yeah i got turned into vampire last sesion...

My own bodyguard slashed me in pieces down the efects of a sugestion..

And i got back as an undead.

Do note that undead are not immune to all ability damage. They are only immune to ability damage to physical ability scores. They can still take ability damage to mental scores.

Quote:
Not subject to nonlethal damage, ability drain, or energy drain. Immune to damage to its physical ability scores (Constitution, Dexterity, and Strength), as well as to exhaustion and fatigue effects.

Not that it actually matters in this case. Bestow Curse is a penalty, not ability drain or ability damage.
