There's a factor you missed out on: the square-cube law. As Wikipedia describes it: When an object undergoes a proportional increase in size, its new surface area is proportional to the square of the multiplier and its new volume is proportional to the cube of the multiplier. Let's consider the implications of this for a moment with a cube of water: it ...

Arcane Disciple doesn’t let you cast spells of any level you couldn’t otherwise You may learn these spells as normal for your class The nar demonbinder does not normally learn any 1st-level spells. Arcane Disciple does not give you free spells known, it just adds them to your spell list so that you can select them as normal. I suppose one could argue ...

Each time you gain an indicated level of Arcane Archer, choose a class which grants arcane spellcasting and in which you already have at least one level. When looking at the "spells per day" and "spells known" tables, start with the number of actual levels you have in that class, and add the number of times you've chosen that class in step one. Similarly, ...

Yes, they stack like the rule you cite says, if the specific class says they do. This is an example of exception-based design - the general rule is "only the one class counts" but then the specific rules in the other classes can say "but I do." Not all prestige classes are alike so you should carefully read their Spellcasting benefit. In this case, Arcane ...

Wild armor does not have an Armor Check Penalty or a Max Dex when you are in Wild Shape. Normally, when you Wild Shape any equipment worn or carried melds with your new form and becomes nonfunctional. All the Wild armor property does is say that you continue to benefit from your armor (and enhancement) bonuses to AC when this happens. If you don't mind a ...

Chain Shirt A chain shirt is the right choice for almost every character, sadly enough. It provides a fairly big wodge of AC, minimal armor check penalty, and has a nice, big maximum Dexterity limit. In theory, a lot of characters could swap this for mithral full-plate if they have medium armor proficiency, but in practice it’s usually not worth it; ...

What it means is that for Spellcasting, you are treated as a 6th level sorcerer(6 1st level slots, 5 2nd level slots, 3 3rd level slots, and 7 0 level known, 4 1st level known, 2 2nd level known, 1 3rd level known, and you have caster level 6).

An unbalanced weapon (like a mace, top-heavy) with enough blade to do slashing damage is basically an axe or a splitting maul. "How do I make a slashing mace?" begs the question of what weapon with mace-like qualities would do slashing damage - and the answer to that is an axe, a top-heavy weapon that actually does slashing damage. By recasting what such a ...

My general trick for remembering how prestige classes work with casters is that base classes (key word being base) are kept separate even if they are the same type (arcane, divine, psionic). Prestige classes can add spells or powers to existing base classes. Sometimes they do not, you can tell the difference by looking at what they grant that level, on the ...
