comment How to legally trap a character under a rock, underwater
Standard rock is ~4-5 times the density of water. The buoyant force is just equal to the weight of water displaced, so the effective weight will be about 20-25% less.

comment What is an “official” supplement in the context of D&D 3.5?
I can't help but think this answer is far too long, given that there isn't really much info from WotC to go on. To me, the most interesting stuff is all buried in the last few paragraphs.

comment Race Creation/Modification in D&D 3.5
Are you planning to publish these somehow? If not, then much of the advice below is basically besides the point -- the technical problems of balancing a LA +0 race can be ignored if you get to work with the players directly!

comment Is the Dark Light ritual an invisibility cloak?
@Ravn Imagine your party is sneaking up to a town under cover of darkness. You need a light source to see with, but a typical light source will give away your position. This ritual is the solution.

This is a good answer, but not to this question.

comment Attack of Opportunity & spell casting
You might want to tweak your wording -- you keep track of the number of AoO you've made since your last turn, not per round. For a new player this distinction is important to make.

comment What are the best uses of a Factotum's Cunning Brilliance (Ex)?
Oh, and oddly, the druid's Animal Companion ability is (Ex). Good luck explaining that one, though.

comment What are the best uses of a Factotum's Cunning Brilliance (Ex)?
The FAQ suggests that: "When in doubt, the DM should decide if an unmarked ability qualifies. Anything that lacks a clear, supernatural element should be fair play." I know you personally don't care for the FAQ, but it obviously will help convince some DMs, and is therefore worth mentioning.

comment Creating undead as a good cleric in Dark Sun
@BESW I think the rules question is related enough to the setting that they shouldn't be split. To know whether, mechanically, the elemental powers forbid casting [Evil] spells, you need to know whether they have an alignment etc.

comment How do Racial Paragon Classes stack up against actual classes?
I think the OP knows that these are inferior to regular classes, but wants an estimate of whether this will affect what CRs the party can take on.

comment Creating undead as a good cleric in Dark Sun
@ViktorSeifert The implication of the sourcebook is that clerics are not powered by the abstract concepts of their elements, but rather are given power by a variety of powerful elemental beings that inhabit those planes. However, unlike traditional clerics, they don't have relationships with specific beings or even know their names. Very key to the idea of the Dark Sun elemental cleric is that they make a Pact with these beings that they have to abide. You should hunt down the sourcebook if you want to know more.
