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 bee branching out more in the past few years.

comment In RAW how can I manipulate animal's attitude while magically speaking with them?
The more carefully I read it, the more I believe that it's an incredibly poorly worded skill. By RAW, it looks like you can make a DC 25 check as a full round action to tell any animal to run away as fast as it can by using the Push action to make it use the Flee trick. It's pretty clear to me that the intent of the skill is to domesticate animals, and to get already domesticated animals to do the things that they know how to do.

In addition to what kravaros said, Handle Animal makes several references to domestication, and implies heavily that the skill is only useful to get domesticated animals to do things.

comment Hide in Plain Sight vs True Seeing
I don't think you're interpreting the word 'change' there correctly. It's mentioned in the same breath as polymorphed and transmuted, which makes me think it means changed as in Disguise Self which "Changes your appearance" or Secret Page which "Changes one page to hide its real content". The Shadowdancer's HiPS doesn't cause a change like that. It doesn't make the Shadowdancer invisible or have a different appearance, it just lets them make a hide check.

comment What's the difference between “Ability to cast arcane spells” and “Arcane spellcaster”?
@KRyan What cases would not work with this interpretation? I'm not trying to be argumentative, I just spent a few minutes thinking about the 3.5 stuff I knew of, and I couldn't think of any counter-examples.
