    A 313 Yes, that's correct.

    No, Zombies do not turn into Skeletons. While they are reanimated the corpses may experience ongoing rot but that does not change the monsters' mechanical properties.

    Q 315 I am aware of spells that harden materials with a duration of permanent. Are there any spells that increase the hardness of any material with a duration of instantaneous?

    The alarm spell does not make any attack rolls, nor trigger any Reflex saves, so trap sense would grant you no benefit in any case.

    I'm not 100% sure on the rules for magical traps, but I do not thing alarm counts as one.

    What's the Decipher Script DC to be able to read Druidic if you're not a Druid. Let's say you found a book written Druidic. Or atleast, how does one go about finding it?

    A 317 additional info

    As KillianHawkeye pointed out, trap sense provides no benefit against Alarm. It is, of course, detectable via the Search skill to someone with the trapfinding ability; the Alarm spell is the default for proximity trigger magic device traps. (See Dungeon Master's Guide on page 68.) The Search DC for all magical traps = 25 + level of spell used to create the trap, or DC 26 for Alarm.

    A 318

    As Winged Creature (Savage Species, page 138) is an inherited template, it likely will not be of use to a character who has the dragonblood subtype. The Improved Flight feat (Races of the Wild, page 151) is the most straightforward solution; it grants +1 maneuverability category. For temporary improvements the Aerial Alacrity alacrity spell, available via the Sky Clerical domain (Races of the Wild, page 174), will improve maneuverability by 1 step. Mastery of the Sky (same domain) grants perfect maneuverability for its duration. The spells Wings of Air (Spell Compendium, page 240) improves maneuverability by 1 step, and Greater Wings of Air (same page) improves maneuverability by 2 steps.

    A 319 DC 30.
    Check

    You can decipher writing in an unfamiliar language or a message written in an incomplete or archaic form. The base DC is 20 for the simplest messages, 25 for standard texts, and 30 or higher for intricate, exotic, or very old writing.
    Druidic is an exotic language (not available except to members of the Druid class).

    That's the required cost for the raw materials, yes. Note that you'll also need to provide shelter, food, and protection for yourself during the week spent crafting, likely incurring additional costs.

    Q 322

    What exactly is the interaction between incorporeal and ethereal?

    Q 323

    How do miss chances from incorporeal, ethereal and having concealment stack? I assume incorporeal and ethereal overlap then you do miss chances like normal.

    Q 324

    If an incorporeal creature is holding something corporeal and they elect to go through a wall, can they simply go through the wall or would they have to let go of the object first? Or if it's armor, undress.

    A 322

    Ethereal creatures are on the Ethereal Plane. Ghosts (creatures dwelling on the Ethereal Plane) can manifest as Incorporeal on the Material Plane. That's the limit of the interaction.

    A 324

    Incorporeal creatures cannot normally manipulate objects or exert physical force on objects, which means they cannot hold normal corporeal objects. The Ghost Touch armor enhancement and the Ghost Touch weapon enhancement can be applied to appropriate magical armor and weapons, respectively. For such magically enhanced objects you follow their specific rules.
    Ghost Touch

    This armor or shield seems almost translucent. Both its enhancement bonus and its armor bonus count against the attacks of incorporeal creatures. It can be picked up, moved, and worn by incorporeal creatures at any time. Incorporeal creatures gain the armor or shield’s enhancement bonus against both corporeal and incorporeal attacks, and they can still pass freely through solid objects.
    Ghost Touch

    A ghost touch weapon deals damage normally against incorporeal creatures, regardless of its bonus. (An incorporeal creature’s 50% chance to avoid damage does not apply to attacks with ghost touch weapons.) The weapon can be picked up and moved by an incorporeal creature at any time. A manifesting ghost can wield the weapon against corporeal foes. Essentially, a ghost touch weapon counts as either corporeal or incorporeal at any given time, whichever is more beneficial to the wielder.
    An Incorporeal creature can take the Ghostly Grasp feat (Libris Mortis, page 27) to manipulate corporeal objects. Those objects remain corporeal, and cannot be moved through other corporeal objects. The Incorporeal creature carrying them can either drop the objects or decide not to move through solid objects. The feat benefit is an option (expressed via "can"), so undressing or other manipulation is not required; the Incorporeal creature can simply stop treating attended material objects as if the creature were not Incorporeal.

    Q 324 B

    Does this mean they can't one moment choose to interact with a corporeal object, then the next pass through it? Say a ghost is wearing pants and wants to pass through a wall without taking their pants off.

    A 325 No.

    Animated Objects have Construct type traits. There is no magic inherent in that type. (Similarly, a Warforged creature is a Construct created through magical means, but has no inherent magic after that creation.) Detect Magic has nothing to detect from a not-yet-animated object. A Rogue with trapfinding would be able to use Search to determine the characteristics of such a pressure plate trap, as usual.

    I am an old hat at this game but one thing has always confused me. The Chill Touch spell grants an extra touch per CL. Do you gain all those touches in a single round and basically Neji Hyugga your target, or does it just apply to your attacks as a sort of buff?

    And so when it gets around to his other turn, he is allowed to make the turn check, then be forced to run away as far as he can due to the fear spell?

    A 327 followup:

    killem2, perhaps I am misunderstanding your question, or you are misunderstanding me.

    Let's say that Jozan the cleric and his party encounters a Lich, some zombies, and some skeletons. Jozan decides he is going to turn undead (for some reason he is using his turn attempts to actually turn undead, instead of using his turn attempts to power a feat or DMM, probably because he is Jozan).

    Jozan, acting on his initiative, starts his attempt to turn undead. Correct me if I'm wrong, but you believe that a turn attempt takes 1 round, and are asking what happens if his turn attempt is interrupted by the lich's fear aura causing him to panic. Is this about right?

    Turning doesn't work that way. Turning is a standard action, meaning it starts, is resolved, and ends on his initiative.

    I guess the lich could have a fear spell readied to cast - (trigger: someone touches their holy symbol or something similar) or has his fear aura readied with the same trigger, or has some kind of immediate action they could use to trigger some fear effect. There may be other methods, these are the ones that came to me off the top of my head. The results are the same. Jozan's action is interrupted while the fear effect is resolved. If Jozan is panicked, he cannot use his turn attempt. If he is not interrupted, then the turn attempt is resolved normally.

    Does that answer your question?

    The effect of Chill Touch is Instantaneous: it charges your body with spell energy, with (up to) 1 charge per caster level. You deliver each charge with a successful melee touch attack, using the standard attack rules. That means you may make one touch attack as a standard action, or as many attacks per full attack action as your BAB allows. Your body remains charged until you have delivered all of the energy, or if you cast another spell the Chill Touch spell energy disappears. Using the standard rules for touch attack spells you are also allowed one attempt to deliver a spell charge in the round in which you cast this standard action spell. Note that this "bonus" attack is not part of the action of casting the spell, and you may move and/or take free actions between casting and attempting to deliver the charge.

    A couple of questions concerning Charging:

    I'm using chessboard coordinates for these questions.

    Q 328

    Can a character who starts his turn in A1 charge a character in B4 by moving to A3 and then attacking diagonally?

    Q 329

    If the above is correct, can a small character mounted on a medium creature(just for ease of reference) continue to move to A7 if he has ride by attack and the mount a movement equal to or greater than 30 ft?

    Q 330

    What is the maximum distance a mounted character can travel after the charging attack? 2*Speed-10 ft?

    Q 331

    Does a medium character's reach weapon extend from the 4 squares his large mount occupies?

    Q 332

    Can a flying creature make a normal charge instead of a dive attack?

    Q 333

    If the answer to Q 332 is yes, does a flying creature benefit from fly-by-attack or improved fly-by-attack on such a charge? If not is there another way to achieve a movement - charging attack(s) - movement routine?

    And now to something completely different:

    Q 334

    Are there playable races besides humans and half-elves that have Favored Class: Any?

    Yes. Because it's the closes square from which you can attack B4.

    Q 329
    Yes (with 5ft squares and 30ft speed it could move up to 6 squares in straight line after attack).

    A 330
    2 * speed

    A 332 Yes.

    A 333 No. Those feats allow fliers to take standard action during movement. Charge is full-round action.
