    Conditions whose IHSability reasonable DMs disagree on (judging by discussion in a previous thread):
    • domination
    • fascination
    • ability damage/drain/penalties (but not burn)
    • poison (having it in your veins such that you will need a second save in the near future)
    • paralysis
    • entangled
    • checked
    • petrified
    • ambush feats
    • balefull polymorph
    • disease
    • effects of ambush feats

    It has also been pointed out that IHS completely ignores how powerful the inflicter of the condition is. Shouldn't a 20th level wizard be able to bespell a 5th level warblade and make it stick?
