Yes There's nothing in the 3.5 rules to prevent you from placing a wall of fire in midair. Nothing in the spell description, or the specific rules for Evocation spells, or the general rules of magic requires that you place a a wall of fire on a solid surface. Some other wall spells have the specific requirement to anchor to a surface, but wall of fire ...

The biggest problem I see with your plan lies in the rules for attracting followers (my source): Cohort Level The character can attract a cohort of up to this level. Regardless of a character’s Leadership score, he can only recruit a cohort who is two or more levels lower than himself. (emphasis mine) That means your dragon cohort has to have a ...

Life Shaping Life Shaping is an ancient set of techniques from the Dark Sun Campaign Setting, unique to Athas. Fortunately, there is official 3.5 content for Dark Sun (official as in WotC says it is official), including a complete treatment on Life Shaping complete with prestige classes, feats, skills, items, and a rules framework. Life Shaping allows ...

The only rule we have enforcing an order of attacks is from the full attack rules: If you get multiple attacks because your base attack bonus is high enough, you must make the attacks in order from highest bonus to lowest. If you are using two weapons, you can strike with either weapon first. If you are using a double weapon, you can strike with either ...

Whether or not you can change the order of your ...

Constructs don’t have Constitution scores. When the description says that they “are constructs,” that is telling you that you should give them all of the construct traits—including Constitution non-ability. Should the book have specified that again when saying to use monstrous spider stats? Absolutely it should have. Can you make an argument that, rules as ...

RAW, The Spiders aren't constructs, they are vermin The spell's statblock says that the spiders are like monstrous spiders except for the listed adjustments: Their natural armor increases by +6. They have damage reduction 30/+2. Their poison has a Fortitude save DC of 17 + your Wisdom modifier. Initial and secondary damage is 1d3 points of temporary ...

Shouldn't At least unless it was agreed upon on session 0 or was included into your "social contract" in a clear way. Animal Companion is a class feature. Making it work against the character removes his agency over his own class features. This does not sound right, does it? Mind control spells are something that many tables ban outright, and most tables ...

Fleshwarper The fleshwarper prestige class from Lords of Madness is everything you want. It requires the Graft Flesh feat found in the same book (as well as in Book of Vile Darkness, Fiend Folio, and Libris Mortis, which each have additional grafts that may be of interest). Grafts can be applied to anyone willing to sit through the procedure. It expands on ...
