comment Where do I find the saving throws matrix for monsters in AD&D
@SevenSidedDie My favorite example is in the 1E PHB. There's a footnote on page 25 under "Fighters’, Paladins’, & Rangers’ attacks per melee round table" that says vs 1HD creatures those classes get 1 attack per character level. It directs you to the Combat chapter, but I've never been able to find the actual cross reference!

comment Can a Gelatinous Cube be knocked prone?
@Cthos I'd disagree with Force Bomb being broken. It's a touch attack, so your touch AC is your save. It deals the same damage as a Magic Missile until at least level 11. The splash damage grants a save and deals an irrelevant amount of damage anyhow. Even if you're hit, you get a save to avoid being knocked prone. If this were a spell, it would be 2nd level tops, and you can't get it until 8th level.

comment How the heck does magical darkness work in Pathfinder?
The best way to think about it is to assume that magical darkness isn't so much the absence of light, but actual anti-light. So the spell causes an object to radiate waves that actively consume the light. When you cast the spell, it draws the darkness from the ambient area and magnifies it into the magical anti-light. Adding more normal light simply gives the darkess more to "feed" on, rather than destroying it. Since it's magical anti-light, it can consume a limitless amount of normal light. You need magical light to actually destroy the anti-light.

comment Devourer and negative levels
This is just a case of the exception proving the general rule. In general, negative levels stack. It will be explicitly noted when they don't, such as with the Devourer.

comment Magus Cast then Move then Attack Legality
Actually, the FAQ cited by Kyle Willey explicitly notes you can cast, move, and attack "just like casting a touch spell". All Spellstrike allows you to do is cast through the weapon. Everything else is core rules.

comment What are the most effective ways to protect a character against critical hits?
For Necropolitan, you really don't need to worry about your Fort save. Undead only need to roll Fort saves when the spell/effect affects objects or Undead specifically. d20srd.org/srd/typesSubtypes.htm#undeadType
