Rules Compendium updated the antimagic rules; incorporeal creatures disappear in AMF. (RC, p.11) Additionally, the original RAW does indeed only mention incorporeal versus corporeal undead, but the difference is the incorporeality. That difference could show rules intent that it's the incorporeal nature of the creature that causes its disappearance. In the ...

One option would be to change the character's subclass to Oathbreaker from the DMG pp.97, which seems to be tailored to a situation like this. An Oathbreaker is a paladin who breaks his or her sacred oaths to pursue some dark ambition or serve an evil power. The paladin replaces the features specific to his or her Sacred Oath with Oathbreaker ...

They would be able to move though the space; they simply cannot enter into a space within that 30 feet from outside that range. Otherwise, by that logic any undead within 5 feet would simply be unable to move, as moving away from you requires entering a space 10 feet away from you, which is a space within 30 feet of you. Turn undead is not designed to be ...

Well, there's certainly nothing stopping you from letting him keep his Turn Undead ability. When you design an NPC, you can do whatever you want with it, and the revenant is meant to be customizable to give it some more character than your regular zombies. With that said, this is going to get weird. Here's why: Each undead that can see or hear you ...

Perhaps he's being influenced by other versions of the spell; the 3e version is substantially weaker than the original and for that, you are right.

Later on it says "Elementals, corporeal undead, and outsiders are likewise unaffected unless summoned." This clarifying statement confirms that the usage of "incorporeal undead" as a singular noun. Additionally I wouldn't consider an unbodied as an undead type as it is a psionic type so in looking at the overall concept of an anti magic field, an unbodied ...

You're right, he's wrong, "incorporeal undead" is a compound noun, not two nouns.

A PC cleric can create an intelligent undead by level 2 or 3; an NPC cleric must wait until level 3 or 4 A PC Clr2 that possesses a Wisdom score of 16 and the feat Scribe Scroll can work alongside a Clr11 to create a divine scroll of create undead (6th-level spell at caster level 11). Such a scroll requires the Clr2 to make a Spellcraft skill check (DC 16), ...

While, as @DuckTapeAl has pointed out, nothing in the rules state that fear is mind-affecting, and therefore the RAW answer is "No", RAI: Yes, undead are immune to demoralize I found a couple of quotes by James Jacobs, Creative Director at Paizo, in the ">>Ask *James Jacobs* ALL your Questions Here!<<" Thread on the Paizo messageboards. The short ...

Pathfinder to the rescue! In Pathfinder you can find the 3.5e-compatible CR2 Poltergeist. It's an incorporeal invisible skeletal ghost with telekinesis and scare powers. It comes originally from Tome of Horrors for 3.5 so if you want a "pure" 3.5e version it's to be found there.

Good news, by RAW you have a couple of options. First option: A wand which casts the spell Unseen Servant (Wiz 1). Crafting a wand that does this with 5 charges/day = 1,800 GP. That's relatively cheap for 5 casts that recharge daily. Second Option: Get a wand or some scrolls that allow you to cast Invisibility on a target. Then use Animate Dead, and make ...

For this specific situation, perhaps you can just have the undead party camped near an outcrop of bio-luminescent fungus or other dim light natural source. It's something innocuous that the undead might ignore, and lets your story work as needed. As for undead having night vision, this is a very common trope across a wide range of media and types of ...

Is there any precedence for zombies or other undead seeing in the dark in other media? Yes, in fact I would venture to say the vast majority of depictions of all kinds of undead have them operating just fine in the dark. Why would undead require light to see? They either have: No eyes (skeletons) Rotted burst eyes (zombies) Spirit eyes (all the ...

Yes, you can. As stated in the spell Gaseous Form: The creature is subject to the effects of wind, and it can’t enter water or other liquid. Emphasis Mine, size doesn't matter in a gaseous form, as you will be subject to the effects of wind as any other gas would be In addition to the effects noted, a gust of wind can do anything that a sudden ...
