I am a person who often reads things, and sometimes writes other things down.

I can program alright in Java, rustily in Python, and I know enough Haskell to look at a function and possibly know what it's doing.

comment Can a Creature Avoid an Overrun Attempt by an Unseen Opponent?
I don't know why it's getting down-voted. It's perfectly accurate. The game does not say. Offering advice on how to resolve the situation despite an admitted lack of an official rule shouldn't be that bad.

comment Can you teleport someone else out of a grapple?
Note that if the Chuul is grappling the Gnome then he can't get an AoO on the Wizard next to the grapple because he has no threatened space while grappling.

comment When you Obtain a Cohort through the Leadership feat is it per the MM Entry or is it statted as a character?
Yeah, really a cohort's CR should be the number two less than the player's level. ECL and HD are both totally messed up and will just give you bad results most of the time.

comment Combining Base Attack Bonuses
Note, however, that monsters using natural weapons don't gain the additional attacks (aka "Iterative Attacks"). You only gain iterative attacks with manufactured weapons.

comment What is the disadvantage of raise dead+restoration against true resurrection?
When you're high enough level to properly cast True Resurrection on your own, a difference of 20k gp here or there is small change; high level characters have absurd quantities of wealth to throw about. Remember that money that you spend so that you don't keep it (food, bribes, spell components, etc) is to be eventually rewarded again to keep your wealth by level up.

comment Calculating and balancing challenge ratings
Ah, yes, EL not ECL, my mistake. Write it wrong once and keep making the same mistake the whole way through, silly me. As to the idea that "EL doesn't exist in Pathfinder", well that's just absurd. Pathfinder is based on 3.5 with a million little edits. There aren't enough changes to the fundamental math to affect how the CR system works (that would break backwards compatibility), and so the same rules apply to all of 3.0/3.5/PF.
