comment New to Tabletops. Have kids. How do you handle distractions?
@Dan I'm pretty sure if you search for questions like "speeding up combat", you will find answers that will have some helpful advice for you as well. The trick to keeping immersion as much as realistically possible is to not get bogged down on out of character stuff. Parental responsibility can't be avoided, but rule arguments and overly lengthy combat can be.

comment Can a bard directly take the Improved Familiar feat?
@B.S.Morganstein Essentially, yes. How you get the familar is spelled out in the Sorceror rules, which I linked to in my answer. You follow that when you want to get a familiar. Being able to do that is what Obtain Familiar gives you. Improved Familiar gives you more options for what that familar is, but you get it in the same way.

To be clear, you can take two feats this level? The normal level 6 one, and the other one your DM is allowing you to take?

comment Determining the caster level for magic weapons?
@HeyICanChan I am agreeing with you, sorry for the confusion. :)

comment Determining the caster level for magic weapons?
@HeyICanChan The prerequisites for creation of an item are given immediately following the item’s caster level. That kind of gives it away, I think.

@G0BLiN So I had it right the first time and it is CL 8?

@HeyICanChan Universal Solvent is CL 20? Okay, that's a pretty convincing example. I'll update.

comment Determining the caster level for magic weapons?
@HeyICanChan Then why does it mention meeting the caster level and having access to the spell? If the CL doesn't matter, only having access to the spell would need to be mentioned at all.

comment Determining the caster level for magic weapons?
@HeyICanChan But wouldn't the CL listed there actually be a prerequisite? There's no reason whatsoever to list Merciful at CL 5, for example. The weapon rules say that you need to meet the caster level requirement specifically, as well. If an item has both an enhancement bonus and a special ability the higher of the two caster level requirements must be met.

comment Determining the caster level for magic weapons?
@HeyICanChan I don't think so, the rule says you need to meet the CL requirement and have access to the spell. You need to be CL 5 to create Merciful, and the spell for that is Cure Light Wounds.

@Andy Not at all. :)
