comment Is making a bet you can't lose an evil act?
@HeyICanChan Ah, I see. You're not concerned with character alignment, so much as falling afoul of the evil acts clause on an exalted feat. I've added a section to cover this, but... Good luck on that one.

comment Is making a bet you can't lose an evil act?
@HeyICanChan Short version: good characters can commit evil acts; and vice versa. Extraplanar stuff like spells and positive/negative energy can be objectively good/evil. I haven't the text of the "tricking someone into buying a cursed item" clause, but my memory is that it was listed as an example of a thing someone evil does.

comment Do flaming weapons with the trip special weapon feature deal their extra damage on trip attempts?
Thanks for the quote! The called out interaction between Vital Strike and Trip is exactly what I was looking for.

Trip is a combat maneuver, which calls for an Attack Roll. Attack rolls deal damage ("If your result equals or beats the target's Armor Class, you hit and deal damage."). How does Trip not inflict damage?

comment Is there any point in learning Mage Armor for my Sorcerer if he's Dragonborn?
Shield is definitely a staple for sorcerers/wizards. It has some drawbacks (eats spell slots, burns your reaction), but it is still well worth having.

Also worth noting: Things that actually provide +X AC do stack, e.g. shields, the Shield spell, and Defensive Fighting Styles.

Contrast with: Does the Sorcerer Feature Draconic Resilience Work with Shields?

comment Does natural armor stack with unarmored defense?
@Dyndrilliac If beast-form ACs are calculated (and not set), and if Natural Armor is a bonus to AC (i.e. "Natural Armor: this bear gets +1 AC"), then this Tweet doesn't matter (as spelled out in the Caveat Emptor section of my answer above).

comment Does natural armor stack with unarmored defense?
@Dyndrilliac You're confusing "armor calculation" and "armor class." Abilities can add to AC without being part of the armor calculation... A magic item that grants +1 AC for example would stack with either animal-form AC or Unarmored Defense.

@Dyndrilliac That doesn't really answer the question of whether Natural Armor is part of the armor calculation (like unarmored defense), or functions as a bonus like a shield. See the Caveat Emptor section.
