The Draconomicon says Only a lawful good dragon should be allowed to serve as a paladin’s special mount. The dragonnel (see Chapter 4) is a special exception to this guideline. It also says A paladin who wishes to be able to summon a dragon special mount must select the Dragon Steed feat (see page 105). The paladin must choose a dragon ...

The rules for paladins summoning their mounts from somewhere else have been written later than the Draconomicon. When the draconomicon came out, mounts always resided on the same plane of the paladin and did never get portaled in. The descriptions in the Draconomicon reflect that status. How to reconcile that is something the DM and the group should aree ...

The feat doesn't specify where the Dragonnel (or a Dragon, if chosen) actually comes from, and the flavor text for Dragonnel only states that: In the wild, dragonnels typically lair in hidden caves located far from civilization So there are two possible answers to where the creature comes from (and your DM should decide which one applies): You pay ...

Well, if it is a dragon dragon (not some goofball wannabe), a powerful, intelligent being that doesn't tend to be friendly to humanoids and other pests, a more important factor than the amount of gold would be simply respect. For a dragon to be feel treated with respect, providing a massive hoard and a comfy lair is a good start. If the dragon is treated ...

I think feats should have precedence on what it's written on the PHB. The feat says that the dragonnel replace your special mount. I read it as "your special mount is no longer the creature that is specified by the rules in the PHB", thus it is no longer summoned from the celestial realms. So I'm inclined toward your first interpretation: the paladin no ...

Where the steed is summoned from would be up to your DM but the rules seem to lean toward it residing in the material plane in its lair and being summoned from there. It could easily be swung that the steed resides in the Celestial Realm and you give it treasure to take to its lair when you summon it. When you take a draconic steed you must provide it with ...

Fist of Unbroken Air says that it targets a creature. As it doesn't specify that it only works on creatures of size category X or larger/smaller, it applies to all creatures of any size. Also since it targets a creature, as per RAW, you can't use it to blow out a hole in a cave or avalanche or blow back a thrown weapon. Note though that monks get the ...

RAW, no, you cannot perform ranged sunder attacks without an additional ability that lets you (like the Archer fighter archetype's Trick Shot ability). That's the only current way to get a ranged sunder ability, but it would be fair to propose a feat or class archetype that grants it.

As the friend in question, my claim is that Steal Health, as written, is a Supernatural ability granting a touch attack, analogous to a lamia's Wisdom Drain. This is not a supernatural ability that can be activated as a standard action to gain a touch attack charge, as though casting a touch spell; the wording doesn't support that. It is an always-available ...

Your friend would be right, except that he missed some key information about specific vs general. The Lich's paralyzing touch attack is a secondary natural weapon, but only because it's specifically noted as such: A lich has a touch attack that it can use once per round as a natural weapon. A lich fighting without weapons uses its natural weapons (if ...
