The four-pointed star used in D&D 4e powers is a unicode character: ✦ / ✦

comment How can I convert the Illithid Savant prestige class to Pathfinder?
That is useful background information to explain in your question, and a useful problem to focus on. You are asking us how to add Illithid Savant into Pathfinder, when the answer is potentially just "add it and Mind Flayer to Pathfinder. Your real problem is "my GM has these requirements, and I would like to be an Illithid Savant. How can I do that?" - you should focus on that instead.

comment How can I convert the Illithid Savant prestige class to Pathfinder?
I equally strongly recommend against the official Paizo Pathfinder boards, on account of the fact the community has historically been extremely hostile about notions of focusing on balance and any focus on numbers. I am not joking, this is not an exaggeration. That is not the place to acquire advice on creating a well-rounded well-balanced race.

If you are after opinions and reviews of your race, this is not really the place: we don't do that kind of thing. I suggest you ask this on a forum instead. I absolutely strongly recommend the Giant in the Playground 3.5e board (which covers Pathfinder too) as this is where a lot of the people who care about numbers and balance dwell. Optimizers, but that just means they understand power levels: optimizers don't just max out, they understand how to control the power level dial and how to ensure it sits at "moderate".

What is this? Did you create it, or is it from something? Have you used it previously, and how has it worked out? This appears to be both a new race and a character build at once. Also regarding formatting, we have a formatting help linked in the sidebar of the answer edit page.

comment Should rogues play stealth or tank on D&D?
@BrianS That yo-yo warden was in fact based on a comment you left here yourself a while ago, that I decided to integrate into that section.

comment How to handle compels that affect the entire party?
That's probably still worth mentioning, though, in case that is not actually the case or best way to handle it.

comment How to handle compels that affect the entire party?
Also worth asking about, probably: what about buying your way out of the compel?

comment What feats should a human rogue take to be stealthy?
FYI, it is spelled rogue, not rouge. Note the 'g' and the 'u' being one way or the other. Rouge is a shade of red or pink, and a type of cosmetics. (Though it is a very appropriate kind of colour for a rogue.)

comment Where does the Sun go at night?
You should explain further about how the 4th dimension would help. An analogy to a 2D Mario game with a 3D sun might be helpful, where the 3D sun revolves through the 2D plane (towards and away from the Mario game's player). It would still very thoroughly illuminate Mario's world - possibly even the underground - though it would eventually have to pass through a spot beneath somehow. I have no idea how this would look to the inhabitants, though...

comment How does a Wizard achieve a very cheap spellbook full of spells?
This is difficult to follow and appears to meander. Use of sections with headings, introductions and brief summaries would be helpful to allow us to follow the points you're making. It would help to conclude with how much gold you've spent and successfully avoided spending, and how many of your spells still were not free. Also, your assumption that being able to make your own ink reduces the cost of writing spells needs citation, as well as consideration of the fact it has cost you several skill points (which are probably worth more than the gold you save using them).

comment Death Magic and Vampires
Promethean, you appear to be opening your answer by challenging some idea that the Life domain can apply, and asserting that the Death domain will have to work instead. As a matter of fact the question suggests the asker already agrees with that, and they're asking for advice on how the Death domain would be applied. I suggest you might be better off removing the rebuttal against Life being relevant, since nobody suggested it was.

comment Fantasy games opposite to 5e's Bounded Accuracy
@AgentPaper Nephtys spends one paragraph describing what they don't like about 5e, not half their question ranting. And in actual fact, them doing so is helpful: it's important to know what features Nephtys is trying to avoid so that we can make sure we don't suggest systems that do exactly the same thing.

comment How loud/obvious is a wizard casting a spell?
@waxeagle After some thought, I'm downvoting this answer for its homebrew component. The meta Q&A on Is homebrew an acceptable answer to a question? captures my thoughts on the matter. We need to know how this works out in play, and we need to be assured this wasn't something you just came up with in 5 minutes whilst answering which will work out badly when we use it due to its lack of being playtested. (And I am deeply concerned about it, for reasons including a DC5 perception check is barely worth having exist.)

comment Is blasting a suboptimal strategy for 5e Wizards?
You have three factors listed; do you mean there's three to think about?

comment Could a lvl 1 drow disguise their race from party for lengthy period of time?
These are disguise kits in a magical world full of magical items. That could be magical cosmetics with magical dye and magical props, all capable of looking totally realistic for weeks.

comment What are the specifics of the Summoner's eidolon summoning ritual?
I've removed the [rules-as-written] tag from this question, since it would seem you'd find developer commentary acceptable too, but that doesn't generally fall under the umbrella of [rules-as-written]. Rest assured that on the basis you're requesting official commentary, answers saying "here's what I think it means" are going to be downvoted as unhelpful.

@KRyan ok, but is there anything the author should do or an alternative you can suggest?

comment How can I learn how to lay out an “evidence scene”?
@xenoterracide yeah, the system-agnostic tag is the subject of a lot of debate on meta. but the thing that leaves me confused is... you're using nwod. The tag is appropriate to describe the setting. Also, if you really want suggestions that pay no attention to your system... that's kind of a weird request, because systems work radically differently (what works in Fate will probably break down here), so answers do have to pay attention to your system anyway, lest you get crap answers that don't work for you in application. I dunno man, I'm at a loss for how to deal with this too.

comment How can I learn how to lay out an “evidence scene”?
@xenoterracide Understood - I did not imagine changing it to the NWOD tag would either change the meaning (it is just describing that you're using NWOD, which you are), nor would it be invalidating existing answers. At the very least I'm editing that last sentence to be more explicit about what you want and why you're using that tag.

Ok, so what do you intend for the system-agnostic tag to mean here exactly?
