comment How Do I Bring PCs into Conflict with Druids?
Well, @Passage, you don't really do this on the open. You just plant false clues.

comment Adventurer's salary
As a side note, if the hirelings are really working more often than not, they are probably dead by now. :P

comment How would divine intervention work with an evil God?
Actually, Kelemvor is like the worst god to ask a resurrection to, since he's the warden that ensures that dead things stay dead. A god of renewal like Lathander (or what have you in 5e) seems more appropriate.

comment Why does a d10 count from 0 to 9?
@MontyHarder what people usually do when rolling percentiles is treating the 0+00 as a 100, so a chance of 50% is 01-50 and the other 50% is 51-100 (instead of 00-49 and 50-99)

comment What legal issues will I have with copying themes and ideas from existing RPG's?
Mandatory comment about how some brands might sue you even if they have no real elements against you, just because you don't have the money or the will to contest their claims. (Not that this happened for RPGs AFAIK, but there's always a chance.)

comment Multiheaded Monsters
Researching for fun and maybe for using the monster as transmutation fuel or for DMing is legit, just don't let that knowledge influence the choices of your character, if you can.

comment Multiheaded Monsters
Mh, wait. You're telling me that your characters failed their knowledge rolls (or had no means of seeing the creature clearly enough to be entitled to one) and you're trying to read the books in order to optimize your strategy? Know that this is called metagaming and, while it is not a bad thig per se, it might be not what your DM expects from you. If he didn't tell you the monster name in the first place, you're basically cheating at the game. That said, this is a valid question, but please, ignore the knowledge that comes from this when planning your spells, or at least be very ashamed.

comment The D20 / 4th edition OGL licence switching what was really up there?
I don't really get what you mean with "continue publishing D20", or from where this came to you.

comment Can I combine Path of War maneuvers with Power Attack?
@KRyan had it been intended to read (an attack) or (a full attack action), wouldn't the first already cover the second?

comment How can you tell a 3 E feat is still valid for 3.5?
@HeyICanChan Sadly, that looks like a forum link, and the WotC forum has been closed. Luckily, the answerer quoted the contents. And that's good, and actually part of why we want the answers to be able to stand alone even if the links go dead.

Related (and makes your last quote moot): Is the Psionics handbook from 3.0 compatible with D&D 3.5

comment Do you retain the benefits of Vampirism after it has been lifted?
If you want to know about curses as well, I suggest making it a separate question. I chose to edit this to speak about vampirism (no curses) since your other question makes it clear this is the problem your group is facing right now. Of course you can also roll back my edit and ask about curses here.

comment Do you retain the benefits of Vampirism after it has been lifted?
@Nyakouai I noticed the disconnection between the so called "curse of vampirism" you might be used to thanks to narrative and the mechanical tag "curse" and I considered the former. As you might have noticed, I never once called it a curse in my answer, which still stands.

comment Is it possible to be cured of vampirism?
I have no idea if this is detailed somewhere in Pathfinder, but in my mind once a creature becomes a vampire it usually loses any sense of friendship, honor, goodness (they change alignmant to "any evil") and are usually portrayed as having a backstab-happy society (and I mean the kind of backstab they're not immune to). It is highly improbable that a vampire wants to be lifted of his "curse": he immediately realizes that he was burdened by emotions that stopped him from being so exquisitely evil. It is far more probable that the party starts directly from your point B2: they want to kill him.

comment Choosing DnD 4th edition or Essentials for a new group and DM?
@Quenting, since Dvole is not familiar with 4e I guess they told him about class features, and he's using "skills" as a general word, rather than a technical one. "What my character can do". Well, there's still some customization (feats and some powers), but the choices are less than with core classes.

comment Is the spell Soul Shackles dysfunctional?
If it wasn't so hard to get the amulet back, I would give an amulet to all my servants, so that I can ask them what wrecked my dastardly plans.

comment How to use modifiers and checks
I have no idea which edition you're referencing to but, e.g. in 3.5, modifier is a generic term for "bonus or malus" (so Str modifier, ranging from -5 to +theskysthelimit). In 4e character sheets, the check column in the ability area is the special modifier used for ability checks

Doesn't becoming a vampire imply you die first?

comment What are the Rules-As-Written limits on a Paladin's ability to work with demons?
@mxyzplk should it be D&D 3.x, it's not about "what is good" or "what is bad", which are opinionable. It's "what is clearly written in the most clear fall-from-grace condition of your class" (it is not even alignment).
