One game design purpose is balance. If you don't have Eschew Materials as a feat or class ability you are vulnerable to your component pouch being taken/destroyed which would you effectively lose all your prepared spells that have a material component. And I think the idea is that when you prepare spells for that day you load the spell pouch specifically ...

I can't find any example of Non-Native Rokugani (besides Naga and Oni) that have the Void Use Feat. I have looked through at least 10 different Legend of the Five Rings books - All of "The Way..." books and the Campaign Setting book. No Example in Dragon or Dungeon Magazine either. The only reason I could think of... it is a Setting Specific feat. Could it ...

It's impossible to gain any psionic combat modes in 3.5... ...because none exist. All psionic combat modes were described in the 3.0 Psionics Handbook. However, the Psionics Handbook has been fully superseded by the 3.5 Expanded Psionics Handbook. This article on the Wizards site has a Wizards representative refer to the Expanded Psionics Handbook as an ...

Strictly, I would think not. The spells you gain from that feat are not listed in a racial description, and nothing indicates that they are racial abilities. (E.g. Nothing says they are added "in addition to any other racial spell-likes" or similar.) The same interpretation ("no") is also implied (but not stated) in the flavor text, where Magic in the Blood ...

You can become a Truth Seeker, which to my knowledge was never officially updated. The requirements are simple (nonevil, BAB +5, three feats, and two skills). At 1st level, a truth seeker learns two of the ten psionic combat modes. This option is superior to the ruby disciple because the latter progresses combat modes "as a psychic warrior" which now ...

The first monster sounds like an aboleth. "An aboleth attacks by flailing with its long, slimy tentacles, though it prefers to fight from a distance using its illusion powers." They do speak Common, and they have mind-control abilities as well as illusion. I can't specifically explain the piping sound, but it might be the native aboleth language, which is ...

The first one strongly hints at a merging of Yog-Sothoth and Azathoth from Lovecraftian Myth or a cunning Yog-Sothoth posing as Azathoth. Reasons to suggest Azathoth: Its presence accompanied by "the thin monotonous piping of a demoniac flute". Tentacled form. Causes insanity by its mere presence. The reason it is not Azathoth is when you write "was ...

The listed guidelines are accurate Keep in mind, though, that most feats remain available unless the game says they're not. But, like any feat, just because a feat's available doesn't make it useful. (Corrupted Wild Shape (Libris Mortis 25), I'm looking at you.) To put a finer point on it, there's this exchange from the D&D Frequently Asked Questions ...

That's a beholder globe The Dragon #331 article "Fast, Furious, and Fantastical" by Frank Brunner includes the beholder globe, a 120,000-gp vehicle made from a hollowed-out preserved beholder corpse, with some of the less powerful eye rays continuing to function under the pilot's control. The illustration by either Marc Sasso or Chris Trevas or both in ...
