comment How do I create fantasy cities?
Far too broad. This should be a couple dozen questions, not one, and only about half those questions even belong on this particular SE, with quite a few belonging on Worldbuilding, and some of them on History or Politics. What is it, exactly, that you want an answer to?

comment Can a Power Word spell be cast silently?
You could still use the Word, you just think it instead of saying it out loud. As for pages of ink to write one word: never studied any Scandinavian languages, have you?

comment Barding (Or Armoring) Animal Companions
The reference is the special materials description for Mithral. From said description: "This decrease does not apply to proficiency in wearing the armor. A character wearing mithral full plate must be proficient in wearing heavy armor to avoid adding the armor's check penalty to all his attack rolls and skill checks that involve moving." d20pfsrd.com/equipment---final/special-materials#TOC-Mithral or the CRB on page 154-155.

comment How should I handle arcane spell failure in pathfinder?
-1: Spending the cash on a consumable wand is very bad advice. It wouldn't be worth it anyway (there are better ways to get armor without drawbacks from items), but is especially egregious to suggest to a character who's already got the ability to cast such spells directly via sorcerer levels. Would be a +1 without the wands bit.

Mithral full plate still requires heavy armor proficiency.

comment Anything to ignore weapon damage decrease due to being small?
@Sandwich Depends if they can spare the feat, what armor proficiencies they have from any multiclassing (armor doesn't interfere with any of a rogue's combat options), and a lot of other things. Either way, whether Finesse or strength, the Small aspect of the character still isn't a net loss, which was my central point.

comment I have 100,000 gp but can't buy gear. What do I spend it on?
Just be careful about this: you want things that can be cashed in quickly, happen as soon after your arrival as will allow you a chance to cash in, and that are as distantly causally removed from your own arrival and actions as possible, lest you bet on the king marrying Princess Amy, but your sudden arrival distracts and delays a messenger, leading to a big diplomatic misunderstanding, and the insulted king snubs Amy for princess Betty, whose country didn't insult him, costing you not only the payoff, but also your wager.

comment How can I imprison my characters for a long period of time?
Then you need to mention those things in the answer. Also, the duration of a silence spell is in rounds. Casting it won't work without tying up an army of clerics. You need a permanent source.

comment How can I imprison my characters for a long period of time?
This might work, depending on the characters involved, but not reliably. Note that the group apparently has a sorcerer, who won't have any problem casting spells without material components, sorcerers rarely need those anyway. Likewise, plenty of the bard's magic works just fine in the situation you describe.

comment Optimizing a D&D 3.5 Monk
How the hell is this getting so many upvotes? At this point, I'm really wishing comments allowed room for a point by point rebuttal, because literally every piece of advice in this answer is objectively wrong, yet somehow it still keeps getting upvoted.

comment Does 3.5e have an equivalent of the Psychic Paper from Doctor Who?
Technically, in the show, psychic paper shows what the viewer expects to see, not automatically what the Doctor wants them to see. His usual usage of it works because, when someone checking credentials is shown a paper and told it's the credentials they're supposed to require of people, the person checking the credentials tends naturally to expect that paper to be the credentials.

comment Can I Craft A Wand of Fireball at CL 4?
@user3735278 With DM approval, you could use Craft Wondrous to make a wand-like item that is spell-trigger, has charges, and casts fireball, but it wouldn't be a wand. It'd be a custom Wondrous item, and would have whatever construction requirements and other traits the DM assigned to it. As a DM, be cautious about allowing this particular type of custom item, as it tends to lead to rendering item creation feats other than Craft Wondrous irrelevant

comment Can I craft a 25 AC piece of armor?
How can you specify an amount of time necessary to make an item, based only on its DC and price? The craft check result also affects the crafting time on mundane items. Either you assumed a particular check result, in which case your answer is invalid for failure to specify that assumption, or you did not assume a value, in which case your calculations are not following the RAW formula, and are spurious. Either requires a correction.

comment How to craft a wondrous item for non caster
The +3 levels per +1 bonus on CMA&A is a specific rule for enhancement bonuses on weapons and armor. It is not a blanket rule for all magic items. It doesn't even apply to all weapon and armor enchantments, but only to ones priced as enhancement bonus (including actual enhancement bonuses).As for NPCs having stuff, "there has to be a reason", in the context of an article about RPGs, is about the biggest red flag possible that you're talking out of the wrong orifices. RPG rules only ever have to have one reason, and that's because some designer made an arbitrary decision.

-1: Supernatural abilities are most certainly magical.
