comment How does Beast Strike interact with a monk with natural attacks?
It pains me to not encourage throwing monks a bone in any way possible, but this just seems kind of silly.

comment What are the ways that a CR-appropriate party can stop a Night Hag's dream haunting?
@starwed Ahh, I'd forgotten that you have to fight the CL of the effect and not the caster to suppress an item! Scratch that, then!

comment What are the ways that a CR-appropriate party can stop a Night Hag's dream haunting?
You can add Dispel magic to the list (target and suppress the heartstone or dispel Etherealness on the hag), as well as any other appropriate Abjuration spell. After dispelling the effect, you are free to Dimensional Lock/Anchor, Magic Circle Against Evil, or just beat the stuffing out of the hag.

comment Can Bluff be used to emulate an alignment?
Touch of golden ice would still affect you.

comment Are there female minotaurs?
Presumably it was difficult for Wizards to create a heroic-appearing opponent with 'Battle Udders' :P

comment Magic the Gathering RPG?
Do you have any more information I could use to track this down? There are several MTG RPGs out there, by the looks of things, though most of them are unofficial and make use of the actual cards...

comment Is there anything (feats/powers/items) that allows a sorcerer to teleport as a move action in Heroic Tier?
Agreed, additional context is needed. Does it need to be at-will? How far does it need to go? Can we use multiclass feats?

comment How to support useful Intraparty Conflict
Thanks! I'll probably come back later after exam week is over and try to do a little formatting to clean these wall-of-text answers up!

comment Which non-light weapons does Weapon Finesse apply to?
@KRyan My apologies, feel free to revert the edit.

comment Helpless opponent & Coup de Grace
I agree. Every benefit of invisibility is clearly listed out in the rules. If it granted coup de grace, it would say so. Otherwise Ninjas and similar classes would be incredibly powerful, and would as a rule wield Scythes, not knives.

comment Could Belief in Little Fears: Nightmare Edition cause the dark side of the moon to really be dark?
Added a system tag, though it's the only game with this tag currently. Feel free to untag it if the tag is wrong.

comment How many dice do you need for Dogs in the Vineyard?
The book does suggest 8d4, as you noted earlier in your sentence :P. d12s do not come up too often iirc, and 4 per person should be plenty, 6 if you're feeling generous.

@BESW Bleh, you're right. I need sleep.

comment Responding to players paying exclusively with gold coins
I would like to add that while all of these are good ideas, and could lead to a lot of fun, the implied logic behind it should not be 'punish the players for mucking up my world'. For an AD&D party, any one of these events would be part of the adventure, and quite probably a fantastic time. For a 3.5 party, I would be a little more hesitant; the players might simply not care about the book keeping aspects of play, and may be frustrated if they feel they are being punished for ignoring them.

comment Mind Control: What's a Dominate Person between allies?
Would you like playing in a campaign where not following another player's ideas resulted in losing control of your character?

comment Swashbuckler's Insightful Strike and Two-Weapon Rend
Agreed. With feats like this, my first reaction is typically "Well, why not?"

comment Do Manacles of Cooperation allow for a save to escape?
The only things I can add to this are that it has to be used on a captive prisoner (so no combat utility), and the fact that it fails to note anything about what happens when you do save which would prevent someone from simply spamming requests. Based on the latter, I would assume that if the target makes the saving throw when the shackles are put on, the whole effect fails.

comment Challenging pre-made campaign for veteran players but easy on new GMs
The only thing I would mention about Tomb is that if one of your group knows the tricks, he's probably going to get through without a scratch.

comment Tried all the existing advice, but players still never roleplay fear
Agreed. The issue here is that the DM wants a gritty storyline while the players are looking for something more along the lines of Beowulf. Neither playstyle is wrong, per se, but they are rather mutually exclusive.

comment Do pregnancies apply at the Bawdyhouse?
@SevenSidedDie How would they even know who the father was? It's not like a noblewoman where there are maybe a handful of possible candidates...
