comment Polymorph, HP and constitution damage/drain
@mxyzplk The new CON modifier changes your saves, various endurance related things, and any CON based abilities you have. (The dragon shaman's breath weapon, for instance.)

comment What is an “official” supplement in the context of D&D 3.5?
That 3.0 statement is exactly the sort of thing I'd like to see; I've previously searched for it and been unable to find it.

comment What is an “official” supplement in the context of D&D 3.5?
No offense, but as even you point out, this is a totally generic response! I wanted to know whether WotC had ever said anything specific regarding 3.5. For instance, did the Living Campaigns allow 3.0 or web supplements?

comment Polymorph, HP and constitution damage/drain
@Zachiel The "polymorph" errata changed everything except the polymorph spell. The idea was to make it possible to simply excise the damn thing from the rules, by removing any references to it in wild shape et al.

It's not like the alternate form ability freezes your hp. If you take CON damage, that will modify your original CON score, which modifies the "hit points of the original form".

comment How does damage reduction work with falling damage?
@Julix The term "Rules as Written" (or RAW for short) indicates a purely literal interpretation of the game mechanics, and that's what I address in this post. As I note at the end, I don't actually play it like this -- I just thought it was worth noting, since there are folks who do.

comment Do I reset XP to zero on a new level?
Well, the only reason anyone reading the rules would think XP reset is because that is how it works in many video games. Back in the 70's, there would have been no reason at all to suspect that they would get set to 0. You'd only think your XP would change if the rules said they change.

comment How to sneak attack in the dark?
Actual darkness is total concealment, so you need to note that the feat doesn't work in that case.

comment What is a “common metal”?
Hmm, you're not thinking about what the wording implies. Uncommon metals aren't mentioned, which means they wouldn't block detect spells at all. Is that really what you'd want?
