Re: A 39
"Strong" and "firm" are synonyms.Spell Components: To cast a spell with a verbal (V) component, your character must speak in a firm voice.There is no contradiction in what the rules say, and that's all that matters here.Originally Posted by Andezzar
A 44 Yes.
A 45 Ask your DM."Bonus spells" is not a restricted term in D&D, so your DM is within the RAW to decide that additional spells for Spell Mastery count as "bonus spells" if they derive from Fox's Cunning.Originally Posted by Fox's Cunning
A 46 a)
Yes, having 4+ Rogue levels more than your target makes their Improved Uncanny Dodge ineffective; you can flank them, and you gain the usual benefits from doing so.
A 46 b) Yes.Only Rogue class levels matter when opposing Improved Uncanny Dodge, absent any specific language of inclusion. Other classes count for the defensive ability Improved Uncanny Dodge if they grant Uncanny Dodge; they do not enter into the calculation offensively. You list other things that alter sneak attack damage, but which have no impact on opposing Improved Uncanny Dodge.This defense denies another rogue the ability to sneak attack the character by flanking her, unless the attacker has at least four more rogue levels than the target does.
If a character already has uncanny dodge from a second class, the character automatically gains improved uncanny dodge instead, and the levels from the classes that grant uncanny dodge stack to determine the minimum rogue level required to flank the character.
A 46 c) No.
Flanking provides an untyped bonus. You cannot stack an untyped bonus from the same source (if you could somehow get multiple ways of flanking someone), but it should add normally with any other combination of bonuses and penalties.
