    Q 1337

    If a ghost who has manifested attacks with a magic+1 ghost touch weapon, does it ignore an opponent's physical armor?

    For reference - I'm reading Monster Manual 3 pp 117-118: "A manifested ghost can pass through solid objects at will, and its own attacks pass through armor." and later "A weapon of +1 or beter magical enhancement, however, can harm material creatures when the ghost manifests, but any such attack has a 50% chance to fail unless the weapon is a ghost touch weapon."

    I'm hoping this is a simple yes and I'm just being stupid, but it seems contradictory to me for the ghost touch weapon to ignore armor (presumably by becoming incorporeal) and then injure the opponent (by becoming corporeal again?). My apologies if this has been asked before - new to the forum, searched around, and couldn't find an answer.
