comment The GM disagrees that Black Lotus Extract should require two saves
Poisons stack really well, per the blog. But that initial save shutting things down makes it rather painful to get started.

comment What do I do about a player with the half-celestial template turning non-Good?
In summary, change the character's alignment, but no mechanical effect?

comment Creating a city made of illusion that won't be quickly figured out
An interesting variation on this would be to require runes to be inscribed on buildings or such as part of the ritual, and then if a fight breaks out and a building is damaged, suddenly the whole block looks destroyed. "Wait, we didn't do that much damage, did we?"

Definitely a more flexible answer than mine.

comment What's the difference between a ranged touch attack and a ray?
@KRyan - my table ignores it too, as well as (usually) the cover penalty for ranged attacks. Mostly due to forgetfulness and our ranged characters always taking the feats to negate them.

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.

@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.

comment Improving Cleric Survivability
@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")
