Our ship was stolen with all my gear aboard it. This has pissed me off to no end. I want to start up an information gathering network to not only get it back, but to punish the individuals behind it. I have no idea how to go about doing this though. I am a sorcerer, not a rogue.
Was discussing this topic with a gamer in a public library. He said his DM stated that per the rules, some form of combat must be taking place or about to take place. I stated that there were no such rules and as long as you could communicate with the creature, it should be able to follow your orders/requests as long as they didn't go against its base nature. I gave the example of a high level wizard summoning a good outer planar being with healing abilities to restore wounded companions. He said that his dm wouldn't allow it as no combat was currently taking place. Where can I find rules on this sort of thing?
Thanks. I will. I can use Ultimate Magic, forgot to list it.
