It's not unique. Radiant Servant of Pelor has the same requirement: Able to cast 1st-level divine spells and access to the Sun domain. In RSoP's case, it's pretty strongly suggested that the Sun domain is required to work, since you get to use it's granted power more times than usual. The best explanation I could find for what that means is in ...

I'll restate your question with my words to see if I've understood it properly first. Let's keep the math easy. ECL 2, starting level 2 (1000 XP) You get a +2 LA somewhere during level 2, let's say right after leveling up. So you're now 1000 XP, ECL 4 and you need to reach ECL 5 for adding your new class level. Your DM says ECL 5 is reached at 10k XP so ...

Must Have The Domain Selected I am basing my answer on the text in the Cleric's SRD: Deity, Domains, and Domain Spells A cleric’s deity influences his alignment, what magic he can perform, his values, and how others see him. A cleric chooses two domains from among those belonging to his deity. A cleric can select an alignment domain (Chaos, Evil, ...

The Special Edition PHB disambiguates the wording. Some people refer to this as "stealth errata" since it doesn't seem to have made it into any other sources, nor was it conspicuously announced anywhere. Even the SRD doesn't seem to have been updated to contain the new wording. Nevertheless, it makes the intent of the feat clear. Emphasis mine: When ...

The rules Technically, the animal companion is a non-player character. You do not control it. Instead, it is a creature of its own desires, experience, and so on, and can and will act independently of the player. Within D&D, independent creatures that are not player-controlled are controlled by the DM. This is akin to how cohorts work (e.g. the ...

Wild Shape was changed in the errata to go off Alternate Form. The website I linked has the updated rules. It's worth reading both descriptions, as Wild Shape changes a bit of what Alternate Form does. Here's some points of note: All gear melds, unless it has a specific property that says it doesn't. Any gear worn or carried by the druid melds into the ...

Just Apply Penalties/Bonuses To The Roll The problem with what you're trying to do with multiple rolling methods is that it's very complicated to actually get the outcome exactly how you want it. Each one results in different odds and distributions, and tweaking them all to get the right amount of gap for each one is going to be complex and time consuming. ...

There is no core rule that lets a PC obtain a template during play. While, as @Ruut notes there are some optional books that suggest variant rules for how your DM may handle the effect of obtaining a template during play, the core rules have an implicit assumption that templates either convert your PC into an unplayable NPC, or are applied at character ...

You Have More Than One Option (Subject to DM Approval) Option 1: Level Adjustment Buy Off Reducing Level Adjustments It happens at multiples of "3". If you were going to use this method, I as DM, would allow you to buy off your 1st level adjustment at 12th level; otherwise, technically, you wouldn't be able to buy off all of the +3 before 20th level. ...

You Need To Use A Move Action The way this feat works isn't how you describe. It requires using a move action to move, and a standard action to attack. As for why, I'll refer to the line of the feat you omitted: You must move at least 5 feet both before and after you make your attack in order to utilize the benefits of Spring Attack. You have to ...

Yes, as long as not flat-footed. Immediate Action an immediate action can be performed at any time—even if it's not your turn. You also cannot use an immediate action if you are flat-footed. Emergency Force Sphere Casting Time: 1 immediate action According to Condition #2: Yes. Since spells, such as fireball, do not go through a wall of ...

I literally played a character named Oberyn Martell in a gladiator-style arena game that a friend ran. He was the only undefeated gladiator in the game. Note, however, that the game started from 1st, all XP had to be earned in the arena, and you were not allowed to enter with any buffs active. It also had very low stats, and quite a few houserules. The ...

Animal Companions are independent creatures, they act on their own. You can direct them using Handle Animal. Druids get special bonuses when handling their Animal Companion, making it both easier and faster. A Druid with +10 total Handle Animal can use the Handle option as a free action, with no roll required. (Commands listed under Push are more difficult.) ...

Here is a rule that nobody talked about so far, from PHBII on page 198-199, chapter "Rebuilding". The Process (for rebuilding a template) Each time your character completes a rebuild quest, you can add, subtract, or replace one template. For example, a dwarf paladin could gain the celestial template, a half-dragon elf fighter could lose the ...

You can also use this ACF to swap your animal companion for a vermin companion. At level 7 and higher, you can pick up a centipede or locust swarm. It's not much, but it's something. Maybe ask the DM if you can pick up more exotic swarms at higher levels.
