comment How does two-weapon fighting work?
@KRyan - I was abbreviating a bit more than I probably should have. See any monster with two separate weapons, like the Balor: +1 vorpal longsword +31/+26/+21/+16 melee (2d6+13/19-20) and +1 flaming whip +30/+25 melee (1d4+6 plus 1d6 fire plus entangle) could be abbreviated (in this BAB/attack-bonus specific context) as +31/+26/+21/+16 & +30/+2

comment How does two-weapon fighting work?
@fectin - I've seen both, unofficially, but official books either list +4/+4/-1 or +4/-1 & +4, depending on how the damage is broken out.

comment How to have a realistic set of languages without making adventuring prohibitively difficult?
The thing that always fascinates me about the Romance languages is the transition from "Everyone that mattered speaks a local variation of said language which should still be understandable by another speaker" to those local variations becoming mutually unintelligible (French, Spanish).

comment How do I convince players to play a D&D campaign with a restrictive premise?
@ssav - I'm usually all for suggesting Pathfinder as an answer to issues with 3.5, but this is one that it doesn't solve. All it does is change point 1's "play a bard and call it a rogue" to "play a rogue with bard mechanics".

comment How can I create a weapon with a permanent spell?
I was thinking you'd actually have to swing at someone (i.e. make an attack roll) but still have a chance of it going off against that target even if you missed. But you're right about swinginess.

As I was reading this, before reaching the bottom, I thought "I'll bet this is KRyan", and I was right. Very nicely done, as usual. Any additional thoughts on pricing it if it were something like "1% chance of activating on each swing, hit or miss"?

comment Looking for a simple online RPG diary
I suggest playing around at WikiMatrix and seeing if you can find something that meets your requirements. Specifically, you probably want a wiki that supports CamelCase auto-linking.

@MatthieuM. - Just don't tell anyone you're selling doppelganger sweat!

comment What's the name of cardboard wall DMs use to hide their part of table?
@dodgethesteamroller - That sounds like a good followup question to ask.

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?

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.
