comment Can a spellcaster use spell slots above their normal limit if their ability scores allow bonus spells of that level?
@DuckTapeal - The Pathfinder FAQ is written by the game designers themselves and are often just explanation on the rules. So yes, I'd take them as official.

Not the official sheets but this: charactersheets.minotaur.cc contains some really great sheets that you can mix and match. The whole thing is open source, but they're all Illustrator files, iirc.

@SevenSidedDie And being able to read English means knowing that when an introductory clause is followed up by more description, it wasn't meant to be taken by itself. "Hearten and heal your allies" is clearly flavor. It has no mechanical interpretation by itself, because the rest of the spell has no provision for just healing "allies". So taking "You fall unconscious" out of its context (a description of what's to come) and using it as a small chunk isn't reading English, it's interpreting it like a program would.

@SevenSidedDie - By that interpretation I can extrapolate the following: If the sentence says you damage your opponents, you do. Period. End of story. But you also damage evil creatures. Forget that they may or may not actually be your opponents. You're saying I should be able to take each sentence as a discrete chunk, when that's clearly not the intention here.

I suppose the best way to convey what I'm getting at is you're taking the first sentence and the rest of the block separately, where you should be taking them together. How are you falling unconscious? -1 hit points. How are you healing your allies? Good creatures get 1d6/lv2 hit points. Damaging your opponents? Evil creatures take damage. Heartening your allies? Prayer effect. Heck, the spell doesn't even strictly affect "opponents" anywhere besides the first sentence, just "evil" creatures which could include your allies. It cannot be rules taken alone.

@SevenSidedDie - Counter example: False Life's first sentence is "You harness the power of unlife to grant yourself a limited ability to avoid death." - Death is a condition, but you in no way can interpret that sentence in any rules manner without the following sentence. "While this spell is in effect, you gain temporary hit points equal to 1d10 + 1 per caster level.". Having a descriptive first sentence is in no way uncommon in spell descriptions. Even in Blaze of Glory, the spell "Heartens" your allies. How? With the prayer effect mentioned later in the block.

@mxyzplk - Because the 2 conditions that can trigger the unconscious condition are falling below 0 hit points, or having subdual damage equal to your hit points. The first of which is reached as part of the spell description. It seems pretty clear that the whole first sentence is "This is what the spell is going to do, let's follow that up with actual rules." Many many spell descriptions do this.

By my reading of the text "You fall unconscious" is just flavor. How are you being knocked unconscious by this spell? It's because you're being reduced to -1 hit points. The definition of Unconsciousness actually mentions hit points as the two ways it can occur: paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/glossary.html#_unconscious. The real question is can an immediate action occur after you're reduced to -1 hit points, but before the "unconscious" condition is applied.

Even Dark Heresy stops using Thrones when you get to Ascension level characters. I've found that all of the WH40k rpgs are really abstract in their rules for acquiring resources.
