Huge creatures do not get a strength bonus because of size in Pathfinder. The monster creation guidelines show that strength varies based on the desired CR of a creature. While bigger creatures have bigger average Strength, there is no strength bonus for being large. The theoretical Mastadon's strength would increase from 24 to 26. You might be ...

A creature that contracts lycanthropy apparently does so instantaneously upon suffering a natural lycanthrope's bite and failing the Fortitude saving throw. The supernatural ability curse of lycanthropy says Any humanoid or giant hit by a natural lycanthrope’s bite attack in animal or hybrid form must succeed on a DC 15 Fortitude save or contract ...

The shortest a Medium humanoid can get by using alter self is 1' 9" tall as a female grippli Unfortunately, many appropriate humanoids aren't given the hey-let's-provide-PC-type-information treatment that typical Small PC races (e.g. gnomes, halflings) are. One is sometimes left relying on flavor text and outside sources for establishing such creatures' ...

In 4e, the only thing that determines your character's size is your character's race. Each race has its size, and the height range in their description. (Rules Compendium, page 199.) The Human race description says that the average Human height is 5'6"-6'2". This puts your rogue outside the standard human size. However, if you compare it with other ...

She doesn't count as small and you can leave her as medium. Strictly speaking: small's made for halflings and goblins as key examples. Unlike previous editions, D&D 4e doesn't have any guidelines for what height converts to what size1 but halflings, the PHB1 small race, are usually 4'2" at most. Your character is not quite that short. They don't become ...

She is a Medium creature. The Medium category is quite broad, covering from 4-8ft tall, and from 60-500lbs. You're a little shorter than the average female, but by no means out of the Medium category. http://www.d20srd.org/srd/combat/movementPositionAndDistance.htm#bigandLittleCreaturesInCombat

Technically you don't take a damage nerf for being small yourself - being small means you normally use small weapons, and the weapons have a damage nerf due to their size. A medium longsword will do 1d8 damage regardless of whether the wielder is a human, a halfling or an ogre - all you need to do is work out how you're going to use it. There are explicit ...

While I agree completely with Ruut's frame challenge, I will answer your actual question: there is a way to increase your halfling's size from small to medium, thereby ignoring the damage decrease from being small. Enlarge Person Relevant excerpts: This spell causes instant growth of a humanoid creature, doubling its height and multiplying its weight ...

I'm afraid it's not that simple. other quality designated Means the feat in question can specify the nature of the requirement. Since it's only 40 feats, it isn't insurmountable, but one size won't fit all, as evident from the question, though you may find three groups (specific size, size or less, size or more) will fit three groups all of the feats ...

Depends on the source. For example, Savage Species explicitly states at p. 30, that a feat prerequisite includes: minimum size or physical characteristic So, Blowhard is Huge at minimum, making it available to purple worms. OTOH, Scramble feat includes a specific prerequisite "Small or smaller" - overriding the general rule from the prerequisites ...

The answer is no (except in Savage Species). Quite simply because, as you pointed out, there are feats that have size ranges associated with them like "small size or smaller" and "large size or larger". Therefore, I would argue that the rules view size categories as distinct rather than inclusive; they wouldn't feel the need to include size ranges in those ...

The answer is yes. This is very much a Rules as Intended answer rather than a RAW answer. I know the question came in as a rules as written request, but there's nothing written down that deals with inclusive sizes, so the closest you'll likely get (barring an official ruling in Sage Advice) is RAI. As a general rule, a prerequisite is a minimum requirement ...
