    I'll have to disagree with Curmudgeon on this one. In this case, Improved Weapon Familiarity has the same demonstrable effect as Exotic Weapon Proficiency; in fact it IS essentially Exotic Weapon Proficiency (racial weapons). I cannot think of a good reason why it would not be acceptable in gaining acceptance into the PrC. Barring an official RAW response to the contrary, logic dictates that it is sufficient.

(This is because the attacker does not move)

    Movement by the defender still triggers AoOs, assuming they move through a threatened square, as is normal for bull rush.
    God dang it! Got it mixed up in my head with Pushback. You are, of course, correct. I find it interesting that they have to note that it doesn't provoke AoO when Improved Bull Rush, which would negate the AoO anyways, is a prereq.

    Oh well.

    Improved Weapon Familiarity just lets the character treat exotic racial weapons as martial weapons; by itself, it grants no proficiencies. However, that's not the actual point of this question. The Champion of Corellon Larethian class states a Special requirement that the character must take one feat from a list of three feats. The correct answer is that if you don't take at least one of those feats you do not meet the RAW requirements to enter that prestige class. House rules about what might be "acceptable" substitutions are outside the scope of this thread.

    If you have 2 levels of Swordsage and a level of Monk, and you are unarmored, do you get your Wisdom bonus to AC twice? This seems silly to me, but I can't find anywhere in the rules that would contradict it.

    They never would stack, because you must be wearing light armor for Swordsage, and no armor at all for the Monk.

    Yes. Any creature can become Dragonborn, so long as it's Intelligence score is at least 3 and their alignment is not evil.

    As stated in the Mechanics of Rebirth sidebar, you retain your original type. If the weapon proficiencies are received because of the type, you would retain them. If they were a specific racial ability (such as a bonus feat), you would lose it.

    Q 1005

    Does the Will save allowed against the Undetectable Alignment spell work like the one allowed against the Misdirection spell, or does it work like the one allowed against the Nondetection spell? I think I know the answer (namely: It works like the Will save against the Nondetection spell), but I would like some confirmation. I interpret the "Saving Throw" line for these three spells as follows:

    1. The Will save against the Misdirection spell is for the diviner who tries to detect the auras surrounding the glamered creature or object. The creature or object targeted by the Glamer gets no Will save.

    2. The Will save against the Nondetection spell is for the creature or object targeted by the Abjuration itself. If a creature or an intelligent magic item refuses to be made non-detectable, it can resist the Nondetection spell by making a Will save against it. An attended object can also share the Will save of the creature that wears or carries it. However, a diviner who tries to detect something warded by the Nondetection spell can only make a caster-level check against it, not a Will save.

    3. Similarly, the Will save against the Undetectable Alignment spell is for the creature or object targeted by the Abjuration itself. If a creature or an intelligent magic item doesn't want its alignment to be concealed (or if a creature doesn't want the alignment of something it wears or carries to be concealed), it can make a Will save against the Undetectable Alignment spell. However, a diviner who tries to detect the alignment of a creature or object warded by the Undetectable Alignment spell gets no Will save against it and has no chance of success.


    Q 1005.5 (related)

    I'm guessing that Spell Resistance for the last two spells (Nondetection and Undetectable Alignment) works just the same as the Will saves do. A creature or object that doesn't want to be non-detectable, or doesn't want its alignment to be concealed, can exercise its Spell Resistance against either the Nondetection spell or the Undetectable Alignment spell (respectively), but a diviner cannot overcome either Abjuration with Spell Resistance alone. (Instead, Nondetection requires a caster-level check, and Undetectable Alignment is foolproof.) Have I got this right?

    A 1003 No.

    There is no such requirement.

    A 1004 Yes.

    Assuming it fits within the weight limits, storing or retrieving is allowed. Your individual DM will decide what action it takes to put a second hand on the retrieved weapon in order to wield it again. (Until that happens you'll only be holding the two-handed weapon with just the hand wearing the Glove, and can't use it.)

    Q 1006

    I know this has probably been asked before, but this happened at our regular game recently...

    How does the Infernal Wounding ability of a Bearded Devil interact with a Troll's Regeneration?

    We came up against an 1/2 Red Dragon Troll, and had no acid attacks handy. Our Wizard summoned a Bearded Devil, but the ruling was unclear. In the end, we ended up hacking the thing into little chunks and throwing it into a Bag of Holding to suffocate.

    The regeneration ability would not stop the additional damage from a Bearded Devil's infernal wound ability, but it would convert the additional damage into nonlethal damage as normal.

    Can a Factotum make use of Maximize Spell-Like Ability, Quicken Spell-Like Ability, etc.? If so, then can the benefit of the feat be applied to any spell cast via the Arcane Dilettante feature, or only to a single spell chosen at the time the feat is taken?

    You can apply Maximize Spell-Like Ability (& c.) to a Factotum's SLA selected via Arcane Dilettante, with the standard restrictions of the chosen feat. That includes limiting the application to a specific SLA mimicking a single spell, chosen when you take the feat.

    A 1010 No.

    The Geomancer's Spell Versatility class feature is limited to the stated options:
    The geomancer may use his Wisdom modifier to set the save DC for arcane spells, or his Charisma or Intelligence modifier (whichever he would normally use for arcane spells) to set the save DC for divine spells.
    Using Intelligence modifier for (arcane) Bard spells is not in the class capabilities.

    A 1014: It follows the normal rules for stacking. If you're not getting the same type of bonus, and if you're not getting the same abilities twice (some classes, for example, refer back to the monk's AC bonus), then they would stack.

    A 1014 additional info

    The stacking rule specifies that the source matters.
    Stacking

    In most cases, modifiers to a given check or roll stack (combine for a cumulative effect) if they come from different sources and have different types (or no type at all), but do not stack if they have the same type or come from the same source (such as the same spell cast twice in succession).
    To understand that you have to know what the rules mean by source ─ and it's not an ability modifier. Here's an example:
    Sneak Attack

    This is exactly like the rogue ability of the same name. The extra damage dealt increases by +1d6 every other level (2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th, and 10th). If an arcane trickster gets a sneak attack bonus from another source (such as rogue levels) the bonuses on damage stack.
    In this case, the source is the named class ability Sneak Attack, which both Rogue and Arcane Trickster get. That last sentence overrides the basic rule so the bonuses stack even though the sources are all instances of Sneak Attack.

    1. How can you tell? As far as I know there are no [Human] feats or [Orc] feats or [Dwarf] feats, only [Racial] feats. So if the rules contain no technology for disambiguating between "Human" and "[Human]", then on what basis do you distinguish which it is doing?

    2. Where is it established that "Race: human" does not mean "Race: something [human]"? Is there a parallel using some other subtype which demonstrates that this is clearly not acceptible?

    A 1015

    Page 150 of Races of Destiny states this:
    RACIAL FEATS
    Feats marked with the [Racial] tag require the character to be of a specific race in order to select the feat.
    Also, page 53 of the same book explains "Illumian Racial Traits", making it clear that Illumian is a specific race, different from the Human race. The common races, including Human, are detailed starting on page 11 of Player's Handbook.

    It is a 2nd level spell that exactly what Color spray says, only it affects everyone in a 40-foot cone or a 120-foot line, according to their HD (instead of the regular 15ft. cone)
