comment Are Drow Cities Illuminated?
Do Drow have access to candles and other sources of flame? I'm assuming that they have various uses for heat (ie: fire), and they're pretty well known for having talent as wizards who are usually quite proficient at lighting things on fire. So, it seems plausible to me that they'd use small flames to light dwellings.

comment How does maneuvering and counter-attacking work for mixed Aerial/Ground combat?
Another recourse for the defender is to find a source of flight for itself.

comment My party bypassed a combat encouter. Should they still get XP?
@Michael: No. But, some of your players may already know being familiar with the monsters in question and players can get an idea of how much encounters are worth simply by paying attention to the amount of xp they earn over time. If they realize that the xp they earned seems low and coincides with an encounter or two that they avoided, they'll make the connection and adjust their behavior to maximize their experience gains (if that's the type of players you have at the table).

comment Paladin's Detect Evil and worn equipment with Evil aura
Does this mean that the CN character that possesses the Darkskull will appear to be evil itself? Essentially, when the Paladin locates the location of the aura, and it's in the same square as this CN character, does the Paladin know (or think) the aura emanates from an item in the CN's possession or is the CN character itself?

comment My party bypassed a combat encouter. Should they still get XP?
@ohmusama: Depending on the desires of your players, the following should be noted. If you want to encourage this kind of avoidance behavior, or at the very least not stunt this behavior, I suggest granting them an equivalent amount of XP that the encounter would have been worth had it been fought. However, if you want to discourage this kind of behavior, then grant only a small portion of this XP. Granting only a small portion will then inform your players of the kind of reward they could expect, which may lead to your players opting to avoid combat encounters less often so they earn more XP.

comment What is an appropriate RP value for this Flight modification?
@DanB: There's the Strix which has an innate fly speed of 60 feet (average). If you work with your DM, you could optimize an Aasimar to have an innate fly speed of 20 feet (poor). Those are the only two races I am aware of that offer fly at level 1.

comment What is an appropriate RP value for this Flight modification?
This issue already exists for other options that get fly early (and don't have to spend a full round at the start of combat to utilize it). Why is it a different consideration here?

comment How can I preserve medieval transportation tropes for the PCs in a world with travel magic?
Low level characters don't typically have access to magical transportation unless some benefactor who has access to that higher level magic provides it. So, what level are the characters in your campaign?

comment Cleric without spellcasting
Are you willing to consider other divine classes like Warpriest, or are you really dead set on what 1 level of cleric provides? It might help if the question included what you are building off of to see if there's an acceptable alternative for your needs.

comment How does the Warpriest class feature Sacred Weapon work?
On 3a, the scenario I had envisioned was in the event that I get separated from my primary weapon because of plot and had to borrow a non-magical version for a short length of time. If I can still power it up (given favored weapon or weapon focus), it'd be handy to know.

comment How does the Warpriest class feature Sacred Weapon work?
"You have to bestow at least +1 enhancement bonus using Sacred Weapon if you wish to choose to also bestow any special abilities" - I'm not sure that's accurate. Sacred Armor has the exact same wording, and the ability to grant Greater Energy Resistence, which costs the Warpriest a +5 bonus. So, it seems clear to me I can use all of my Sacred Weapon/Armor enhancement bonus to "purchase" special abilities instead.

comment How to optimize a supporting cleric that deals damage at range?
@mxyzplk: Sigh. There was information in those comments that I was hoping to research when I had the time to do so. I no longer recall the prestige class that was mentioned in that thread, nor am I able to edit that information into my question to make it a bit more specific.

You made a good point, though. What the domains provide are pretty meh.

The Feather domain gives access to fly and mass fly as domain spells. Just need to wait until being able to cast 3rd level spells and then the character can shoot while hovering.
