comment Does an Enhancement bonus on clothing become an Armor bonus?
@Goblin The rules are not worded great, but this part is pretty clear: "Since enhancement bonuses to armor or natural armor effectively increase the armor or natural armor's bonus to AC..." -- Enhancement bonuses increase the bonus to AC.

@Goblin PFSRD, plus the wording of the bonus, plus the ability to use a magic shield and magic armor at the same time.

comment Is Sunbeam's beam considered sunlight, for the purposes of Sunlight Hypersensitivity?
@khashir Absolutely! And I think it's pretty clear that if for some reason you can only cast one of those two spells, you want to cast Sunbeam. But I'm not really sure how that's relevant to the question you asked?

comment Is Sunbeam's beam considered sunlight, for the purposes of Sunlight Hypersensitivity?
@Khasir The regeneration is tangential, in that both spells already deal radiant damage which shuts it down anyway. Re: New beam and dim light... Sloppy writing on my part. More or less corrected.

comment Are there any established rules for flying in combat for D&D 3.x or d20 Modern?
@KRyan That question didn't exist when this one was asked. And doesn't hook into the d20-modern space (which is the goal of this question).

comment How do I challenge my PCs who fight every battle like Mongol horse archers?
What is your typical encounter starting distance? Maximum longbow range? 100 feet? Five squares? Are the enemies typically coming to the PCs, or are they defending a strong point?

comment Does Burning Hands really require touching thumbs?
@mattdm The issue is that the thing in the description isn't worded as a requirement (which we have several examples of), it's worded as a thing that happens. But I certainly agree that if the DM feels it's a requirement they should be up front about it! :)

comment Does Burning Hands really require touching thumbs?
@SevenSidedDie I've added a couple branches for that. The problem here is that there's no authority on what happens when part of a spell is impossible. Does the spell do as much as it can? Or fail entirely? Setting aside the issue that creating freaking fire from nothing is as impossible as a one-handed man touching his thumbs together.

@sevensideddie I'm having difficulty parsing what you're saying here. The rules say that spreading your fingers, touching your thumbs, etc. are part of the effects of the spell. No distinction is made between that and the fiery bits, either in the rules or the spell.
