I'm a game designer that's been playing tabletop games since the early '00s. Most of my experience is with the D&D 3/3.5/Pathfinder ruleset, but I've been branching out more in the past few years.

comment Do acid and sonic damage bypass object hardness?
@thedarkwanderer By 'damage resistance', I mean any ability that directly prevents an amount of damage, namely energy resistance, energy immunity, or damage reduction. Damage reduction doesn't apply to energy attacks, but energy resistance does. Hardness 5 is basically identical to Resist (fire, cold, acid, etc.) 5 and DR 5/- in most cases.

Added note about hardness being just another kind of damage resistance.

Yes, and if you deal damage to a creature, you apply that creature's damage resistance to the attack. Hardness is a form of damage resistance like any other, and functions identically to energy resistance or DR.

As much as I'd like the points, it looks like you were 4 minutes faster. :) I'll go delete mine.

I got ahold of a copy of the SBG, and I added in a summary of what it says to this answer, to make it a bit more complete.

comment What's the most efficient way to build an underground base?
The first option is pretty reasonable, but will need a LOT of castings of Soften Stone and Earth and Stone Shape to get a reasonable amount of space. The second option is also pretty good, though it does have the issue that the structure is vulnerable to Dispel Magic, since Transmute Mud to Rock is permanent, rather than instantaneous.
