    A 236

    You don't have any "lost" levels; you merely have non-Druid levels. A multiclassing Druid can gain some improvement to spellcasting (CL) via the Practiced Spellcaster feat (Complete Divine, page 82). A Druid multiclassing with Scout can benefit from the Swift Avenger feat (Dragon # 357, page 87) to stack Druid+Scout levels for daily wild shape uses.

    A 237 No.

    Shadow Blade does not replace STR mod with DEX mod for use of Shadow Hand weapons; it adds to it. There is no multiplication of this ability unless explicitly called out (and I know of no such statement in the rules).

    A 238

    This combination is not possible under normal circumstances. Decisive Strike requires its own full-round action. If you had some extra action allowing a bull rush (either a standard action bull rush attack or a full-round action for a charge attack including a bull rush), and managed to inflict Dungeon Crasher damage by forcing the enemy into a wall before your next turn, then the damage from that attack would be doubled.

    Q 239: When you determine the ECL for formula of reducing level adjustments. In Unearth Arcana it states you use (ECL - 1) x 1000. Now, it doesn't include racial HDs when you figure up what level you are able to start a reduction. So is a level 5 Loxo, an ecl of 12? 5 for class level, 2 for la, and 5 for hd?


    Q 240: If this is correct, then even though a level 5 loxo, would be able to start a reduction at level 6, they actually can't be cause you won't be able to spend enough xp to pay for the reduction. 5->6 requires 5k more exp, this loxo is going to need 11,000 xp for its first reduction, which means, they can't even get 11k exp saved up until they are ready to level upto 12.

    This can't be right can it?

    A 239 Correct. A Loxo with five levels of a PC class is ECL 12, and ECL is used in the formula for calculating the cost of buying back levels. Note that a level 5 Loxo cannot buy off any level adjustment yet, as per the rules in Unearthed Arcana.

    A 240 A level 6 loxo needs to spend (13-1)x1000=12,000 xp to buy off their first point of level adjustment, as per the formula you quoted. A level 6 loxo, as an ECL 13 character, has at least 78,000 xp, and no more than 91,000 xp. As such, paying 12,000 xp would almost always bring them back to ECL 12, exactly as Unearthed Arcana suggests.

    RAW, as long as a Changeling is not in their natural form (pale, thin, etc...) then all of a Warshaper's abilities are in full effect.

    Yes. Off the top of my head, look up the Prestigious Paladin (UA) and the Divine Mind (CPsi).

    A 243

    If you mean adding your Wisdom modifier to HP, then kind of. There's a feat in Underdark (Wisdom Breeds Caution) that allows you to add your Wisdom modifier to your hit points at first level only. Note that you also gain a single hit point each time you gain another point of Wisdom.

    Q241cont.: I don't think you quite understood my question. At Warshaper 5, you get Fastmorph if you have the Shapechanger subtype or Multimorph if you have the Wild Shape class feature. But it isn't clear on what happens if you have both.

    Sorry for not reading your question carefully enough.

    It's best to ask your DM in a case like this. Personally, I'd probably rule that you get flashmorph, because the Changeling's Minor Shapeshift ability is an inherent part of the character, rather than WS, which is acquired. YMMV, though.

    A 245 No.

    There is no Oversized Multiweapon Fighting, and a Thri-Kreen cannot take Oversized Two-weapon Fighting because they cannot satisfy the Two-Weapon Fighting prerequisite. (Multiweapon Fighting replaces Two-Weapon Fighting for creatures with more than two arms.) Wield Oversized Weapon will help regardless of number of arms, but this is only available at Epic levels.

    For his or her first Hit Die, a 1st-level character gets the maximum hit points rather than rolling (although Constitution modifiers, positive or negative, still apply).
    Characters (as opposed to monsters) start with the maximum for their first hit die, whether that is a racial or class hit die. All subsequent hit dice are determined normally rather than maximized.

    Text trumps table, so there are no Prereqs as of RAW
    The errata doesn't mention this either

    As often as you like, BUT you need a swift action to activate the ability, which entails exactly 1 attack. And (normally, there might be ways) you only have 1 swift action per round.

    Q252
    The power Ecto Protection says you can manifest it as a swift action during the same turn that you manifest an Astral Construct which it protects, but Astral Construct takes a full round to manifest, so the Construct which you're targeting doesn't actually exist at the time you're spending power points both to summon it and to manifest Ecto Protection. Does this somehow work anyway? Also what's with the power's reference to you using an ML check to protect the construct from Dispel Psionics? I thought it was the dispeller who makes an ML check to dispel things; I'm not aware of any option to resist the dispelling as it happens.
