Except that the caster did not end the spell...which would normally result in a Feather Fall effect for 1d6 rounds. He kept the spell going but did not use it. They put forward the concept that just because one had a fly speed, one did not have to make use of it.
I guess I should have mentioned that when he caught up with the baddies, he made use of his fly speed from the spell and was able to match their speed and defeat them.
Okay, so I was in a gaming session a couple of days ago and one of the players did something that sounds ridiculously impossible...
Does this make sense to anybody out there? It sure as heck doesn't make any sense to me.
...needless to say, the DM agreed with the player that that's how the Fly spell works...
Sooo...falling 30' onto a door [like a trap door] causes 3d6 damage and your DR/non-bludgeoning won't do anything...but...a giant that wallops you with a door for 3d6 damage has to deal with your DR/non-bludgeoning because getting hit is bludgeoning damage and hitting is untyped damage and this is supposed to make some sort of sense...somehow...?
Even though it sounds like I'm b@@$%ing about this, I'm really trying to understand the difference.
...as always, thanks for putting up with me...
So...technically...assuming these rules interpretations are accepted in a game, it would be possible for a 5th level wizard with the Craft Wand feat and 4 negative levels to make a wand of fireball at 1st caster level. It would cost 1,125 gp and 2 days to make and be able to spit out 50 1d6 fireballs with a maximum range of 440'. At 2,250 gp it would be the cheapest fireball wand in existence. And also the least effective.
Just like all the other feats, it really depends on how you use it or intend to use it.
Back in 3.5, I had a fighter that specialized in shuriken. By the time she had taken Greater Weapon Specialization, she also had Greater Two-Weapon Fighting and Rapid Shot not to mention all the other feats required for those. The end result was up to 7 shuriken per round with each one that hit doing 1d2+5 damage. There were other attack and damage modifiers, but they don't apply to this example.
So, like all the other feat, think carefully how you want your character to be able to act/react in combat [and other situations...].
So, basically what people are saying is a feat is more powerful than a racial ability.
As always, thanks for listening.
I was looking at Table 7-12 in the Core Rulebook to see for myself the difference between one-handed blades and two-handed blades and I noticed something that led me to ask the following "dumb" but related question.
Artisan's Tools: These special tools include the items needed to pursue any craft. Without them, you have to use improvised tools (-2 penalty on Craft checks), if you can do the job at all.
My question is based on something I heard about that happened in a game. One of the players wanted to make use of his character's Craft skill [I think it was Craft (armour)] and had a set of artisan's tools. The DM objected because the character did not have an anvil but wanted to fix buckler (assuming I am remembering the situation correctly...).
According to the description of the skill and the artisan's tools, a separate anvil would not be required.
What am I missing?
Actually, DM Blake, master marshmallow is correct.
My turn for a "dumb" question.
I've got a potentially stupid question...
What about magic item creation and the Aid Another action?
As always, thank you for letting me speak my mind.
Technically, holy water is sold at a loss, not at cost. The cost for a flask is 3cp. If it was sold "at cost" it would cost 25gp, 3cp. Most people consider this to be unnecessary, so...the 3cp gets dropped. I'm sure most peasants wouldn't consider 3cp to be negligible...
Again, thanks for letting me butt in and speak my piece...
Um...am I the only one who has noticed that one of the requirements to make an Ioun Torch [in the book] is that one must be a 12th level caster?
Just how broken does this item sound now?
As usual, thanks for letting me speak my mind.
If I may be permitted to make an observation, I'd like to point out that the original poster of this particular thread claimed to be "trying to recover from a bad lung infection." I don't know about anybody else, but I have seen the effects of severe asthma attacks, first hand. I am going to assume that a "bad lung infection" would carry similar consequences. This means one is desperately trying to intake enough air simply to breathe properly. One's energy level is extremely low, and one would not, repeat NOT, want to speak on the phone/speak in person to somebody/check emails on a regular basis.
Being out of breath sucks. Especially when it hits really hard. When taking really shallow breaths is all you can do, one just doesn't have the energy to do much at all.
Also, I am going to further assume that "pissedoffplayer" does not live alone. Said potential roommate/lover/spouse/whatever most likely would have/should have informed the person continually coming to the door [let's call him/her "pissedoffplayersGM"...] of the state of health of the other person.
On the other hand, if "pissedoffplayer" >>does<< live alone, that could go a long way towards explaining why s/he would not have responded to "pissedoffplayersGM" when s/he called/emailed/showed up unannounced. "Pissedoffplayer" would most likely be struggling for breath.
Hopefully, this observation is of some small assistance to everybody.
...and, yes, this is my first time posting on this site.
Thank you for your time.
