comment Why are curative spells referred to as necromancy?
Probably worth mentioning: Originally, cure spells and inflict spells were the same spell, just reversed. So it makes sense they were the same school.

comment Good items for Sword and Pistol trench fighter using Power Attack and Deadly Aim
@HeyICanChan - Hmm. I think you're right. I've been reading that wrong since UE came out.

comment What is wrong with the D&D 3.5 FAQ?
@KRyan - You've explained most of this to me in comments before, and I think this works really well as a definitive answer. However, I'd prefer a more mainstream example of an outright contradiction than the one with vestiges, which are a really small experimental subsystem.

@Barillas - An Oracle with the healing mystery (Life?) would love those stats and have the channeling you want.

comment Where to get mapmaking software for Mac?
That looks awesome. I'm going to have to check it out when I get home. However, it's worth noting that this is professional cartography software with a matching price ($99).

comment Are there any perk based RPG systems (e.g. Fallout III, Skyrim, etc)?
@DimensionsGaming - System recommendation questions are hard. There's definitely games out there that match what you're looking for - you just need to narrow it down more. Your last comment is a good start. Take a look at this FAQ and see if there's any more detail you can add. Does theme matter? (Cyberpunk, classic fantasy, real life, space, wild west, ...) Do you prefer detailed combat or abstract? Are levels even important? (There's games where characters are only composed of "perks")

comment Is there an effect on player's reaction to treasure when raising the value of gold relative to other coins?
Yes, that's a US-ism. I'm sure there's equivalents in other countries, though.

The way you treat platinum is how many people treat dollar coins IRL. Sure, you could just go to the bank and get a bunch of them, but most people I know are "Oooh, shiny" when they get them and don't want to spend them..... Provided that the local transit system doesn't dispense them as change.

comment Weapons/Means for touch attacks
@mxyzplk - Good question. The linked page explains how the Oradin heals, and it's rather clever, but the whole point is to free you up to do other things in combat... but with neither a high strength nor a high dex, and very little spellcasting, what else will this character be doing?

comment Can a sorcerer use a scroll of a spell not known?
@thedarkwanderer - True, but once you bring in UMD, you can share spells with the party rogue (or fighter) the same way.

comment Are there any “linked” creatures that can only be defeated in tandem?
Like @minnmass, I haven't seen this directly, although I have heard of a lich which had a golem as its phylactery, which would produce similar results.
