Half-celestial does not make any requirements on your alignment, and you cannot fall as a half-celestial the way a paladin can; there is no such thing as an “ex-half-celestial,” no way to lose the template or its powers. They list “Always Good” as an alignment, but always does not actually mean always with alignment; you can have non-Good half-celestials. ...

No. Attacks of opportunity are resolved prior to resolving the triggering event. Standing up provokes an AoO, and sure, you could use it to trip him again, but he's already prone (technically, he's in the process of standing up, but since he hasn't finished the transition yet, you still get the bonuses for him being prone). After your AoO resolves, the ...

According to d20pfsrd, the major difference between a major and minor artifact is how many there are. It even point out that "Minor artifacts are not necessarily unique items", just that they merely can no longer be created by common mortals. A major artifact on the other hand is one-of-a-kind, there are no copies and most likely never will be. The problem ...

Yes and no. There are two different things called "Web" in Pathfinder: the web ability and the web spell. If you're casting the web spell, you can't target a single creature. As the spell description states: These masses must be anchored to two or more solid and diametrically opposed points or else the web collapses upon itself and disappears. Web ...

Here are the rules: Starvation and Thirst Characters might find themselves without food or water and with no means to obtain them. In normal climates, Medium characters need at least a gallon of fluids and about a pound of decent food per day to avoid starvation. (Small characters need half as much.) In very hot climates, characters need two or three ...

That kind of decay is probably best represented by ability damage. He's not "technically" starving, but he's not eating well enough to really support him, right? Poor health = Constitution damage; physical weakness = Strength damage; broken will = Wisdom damage. You could add others too, if you wanted. If he's forgotten how to deal with people like ...

Here is the link to the FAQ by Paizo. It states, Trip: When a prone character stands up and provokes an attack of opportunity, can I use that attack to trip the character again? No. The attack of opportunity is triggered before the action that triggered it is resolved. In this case, the target is still prone when the attack of opportunity occurs ...

From the core rulebook's definition: Minor artifacts Minor artifacts are not necessarily unique items. Even so, they are magic items that no longer can be created, at least by common mortal means but still will likely have a great impact on the adventurers and societies through whose hands they pass. Minor artifacts are typically distinguished as ...

A creature brews any fleshgrafting poison at the GM's discretion The feat Brew Fleshcrafting Poison comes from Endless Night, the fourth chapter of the Second Darkness adventure path for Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 (that's what OGL after the path's entry on the Paizo Web site means). The feat's included on the d20PFSRD site, but it's unavailable on Paizo's ...

RAW as a Neutral, Lawful or Chaotic Druid he can choose each time. Your ruling isn't entirely unreasonable though - it is a powerful feat. However, if you stick to that ruling, I would give him the opportunity to pick a different feat if he wishes. It's probably still worth him taking though.

Technically, the spell sonic thrust deals damage only to a hurled object's target, not to the hurled creature or object itself... Most interpretations separate creatures and objects into two distinct categories. For example, on Aiming a Spell says Some spells have a target or targets. You cast these spells on creatures or objects, as defined by the ...

A goliath warden is, to date, my favorite character in 4e. I really wish there was a straight answer to your question, a single class that captures the essence of the warden, but 3.5 did not do defenders much at all, and no class really matches the warden. That said, we can get close, particularly if we do use a little bit of a second class. Goliath ...

You don't know and can't choose; it's random so roll dice The alchemical item elemental flux (20 gp; 1 lb.) says This flask of alchemical powder reacts to the elemental power in suli blood. Adding at least 1 hit point worth of suli blood to it creates an alchemical splash weapon. The splash weapon works like a flask of acid, except the damage is a ...

One other way to represent malnutrition would be negative levels. These are already not healed by simple hit point restoration, and you can rule the effect to be something along the lines of "1 negative level per 6 months the NPC was imprisoned, and 1 restored level per 2 months he spends recovering." If your PCs have access to magic capable of restoring ...

Create your own Disease. Since you have this tagged as house rules, I think the best option here would be creating your own disease. It would have some type of strength and dexterity penalty to describe the persons inability to move and lack of exercise over his captivity, since his body is shutting down that would also indicate some kind of constitution ...

First, a minor point. As a general rule, monsters have Mythic Ranks(MR), non-monsters have Mythic Tiers(MT). For the purposes of abilities dependent on mythic level, they are treated as equal. Second, under general rules, a monsters MR is equal to half its original CR. In your example, the wolf's MR is significantly higher than average. The benefits to the ...

No There is no other way to allow you to threaten with a Whip outside of taking these three feats. The only advantage using a whip instead of a reach weapon will provide is allow you to threaten squares adjacent to you. While wielding a whip, you threaten the area of your natural reach plus 5 feet Improved Whip Mastery will allow you to threaten 10 ...
