All creatures with a constitution score (except for constructs and undead) are considered to be living as per the WOTC D&D Glossary: http://archive.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/glossary&term=Glossary_dnd_living&alpha=L So it seems that as an ooze has a constitution score, it is alive. http://www.d20srd.org/srd/monsters/ooze.htm

In the vampire template, there is a section called "weaknesses", that describes the following restrictions to a vampire's abilities: Held at bay by strong garlic odor, mirrors and strongly presented holy symbols. Cannot enter a private home or dwelling without invitation. A stake through the heart kills it. Number 3 is pretty irrelevant to the situation, ...

Yes. The template lists all weaknesses of Vampires Weaknesses: Vampires cannot tolerate the strong odor of garlic and will not enter an area laced with it. Similarly, they recoil from mirrors or strongly presented holy symbols. These things don't harm the vampire—they merely keep it at bay. A recoiling vampire must stay at least 5 feet away from the ...

As written, there's little that prevents a vampire from entering. Hallow effect technically does not ward neither undead nor evil creatures that are native to the plane of existance on which the effect is situated. The standard list of effects that could be attached to the hallowed area does not help that issue, either. Furthermore, the temple is not a ...

A Mage can take the form of another human with the Life 4 spell Doppelganger. However, having Life 4 comes with a baggage of extra powers that might overshadow this specific ability. Instead, the character could be a normal human that has found a cursed talisman imbued with this particular spell. Such a talisman is considered a 5-dot merit. Before ...

As far as I can read, in both cases the HP maximum is only drained if you fail your Con saving throw. If you save successfully your HP maximum stays the same, therefore it doesn't drop to 0 and thus you don't die from Life Drain (regardless of whether the raw damage still kills you). The two instances of the text are worded a bit differently, but in both ...

The published adventures were created before the MM/DMG/Players were 100% finalised and there were a number of changes made after they were ready and never fixed. (Another Example: monster readyness levels which were dropped after modules were created.) I believe this is simply the designers using an older form of the creature which was changed to be a bit ...

Probably too late, but City of the Spider Queen (WotC ) has a couple of CR16 vampires: -Jhorganni, Female drider vampire: Clr7; CR16, pg.152 -Maas, Vampire Assassin: Male drow vampire Mnk4/Rog4/Asn5; CR16, pg.155

In the final rules it's pretty clear: a monster can make multiple attacks only if it has the "Multiattack" action, which always specifies which attacks can be made. In the case of the Owlbear, it has a Beak and a Claws attack (Claws counts as only one attack). It also has a Multiattack action saying "The owlbear makes two attacks: one with its beak and one ...

Mongoose Publishing Excerpts from Mongoose Publishing: Slayer's Guide to Kobolds Kobolds are a common sight in many campaign worlds; deemed by most adventurers to be a minor nuisance at best. Certainly, most experienced adventurers would question the need to study kobolds in any great depth, but then, few have faced the full might of a kobold clan and ...

The biggest source of information on Kobolds and their societies in 3.5 is the book Races of the Dragon. The Kobold chapter is 18 pages long, and has the following sections: A Day in the Life Appearance Psychology Kobold Life Society and Culture Religion History & Folklore Language and Settlements Of course, the book also includes "normal", ...

Looking through the list of creatures with False Appearance, they will look exactly like their lookalike form. No perception passive or active to attempt to detect anything unusual about the creature. Most would smell almost exactly like their base look alike form or if they smell slightly different it would be almost un-noticible to the point where the ...

As far as I can determine, there are no guidelines for exactly what this ability covers. However, I would assume that this is referring to physical indistinguishability (is that a word?) and therefore I would rule as the following: 1. Does an ordinary, completely harmless stalactite gain Unseen Attacker advantage when it attempts to throttle a character ...
