    Q17
    The Spell Compendium version of spiderskin says that it increases in benefit for every 3 caster levels, but fails to include an explicit maximum yet also an explicit recognition that it scales without bound. The given examples stop at spell level 15, but those are only examples, not limitations. Is SpC spiderskin uncapped by RAW?

    A 017

    Yes, by the wording in the spell, there is no cap on the bonuses. Compare to the wording of a spell like Barkskin:

    This enhancement bonus increases by 1 for every three caster levels above 3rd, to a maximum of +5 at caster level 12th.

    Question Re: Simple RAW Thread for 3.5 #35: 3/2 Score And Four Threads Ago

    Q 018

    Question about the Goblin Pits of Io-Rach (BoVD p.22) and the mutant/variant goblins they produce.

    It says the goblins are medium sized, and have an inherent +4 Str, +4 Con, -4 Int, -4 Wis and -4 Cha.

    A.) Would this be in addition to normal ability mods for goblins (-2 Str, +2 Dex, -2 Cha), or instead of them?

    B.) Also, would you apply the normal modifiers when changing a creature from small to medium in size (+4 Str, -2 Dex, +2 Con) ?

    Q#19

    If Kaorti (or other far realm navtive creature) holding a rod of embassy (far realm) cast teleport, greater, could they teleport to a location in the far realm (fully in the far realm)

    Notable facts

    Kaorti are native to the far realm

    Rod of Embassy: "When a creature carries a rod of embassy keyed to its home plane, it is considered to be on that plane for as long as it holds the rod"


    Teleport greater: "This spell functions like teleport, except that there is no range limit ... Interplanar travel is not possible"
    ^ the no range limit means if there is an infinite distance from the Kaorti to the destination in the far realm (there is) it can still reach that point.


    TL;DR: Is a native to the far realm holding a rod of embassy (far realm) attempting to teleport to a point in the Far realm considered Interplanar Travel?

    A. -2 str, +2 dex, -2 cha are Racial bonuses,
    +4 Str, +4 Con, -4 Int, -4 Wis, -4 Cha is inherent bonus, they are separately applied (meaning they stack

    B. They "Grow to medium size" I believe it would be permitted.

    Revenge of the semantics: I would argue No, but this could be ruled either way. The point of contention is condensed into the following: If one is 'considered on X plane', would teleporting to that plane from another still be considered interplanar travel? I believe that there is a distinction here between 'considered on' and actually on. You can be considered on that plane all day long, but to take you from where you physically are to where you physically want to go would still be traveling from one plane to another. Thus, it would still be interplanar travel. Again, this could be ruled either way depending on your DM, and even the RAI doesn't seem clear here.

    Well... but a strict RAW reading, yeah... although, note that the Regeneration rules specifies "A creature must have a Constitution score to have the regeneration ability.", so the whole thing is dysfunctional anyway.

    Would a Maximized Dispel Magic (or similar spell) allow an automatic 20 on the caster level check?

    Or does it fall in the "Saving throws and opposed rolls are not affected" category for the Maximized Spell feat?

    A dispel check is a specialized form of caster level check, similar to a check to overcome SR. It can succeed or fail, and is made against a target difficulty. The effect of the spell has no random variables; much like a Charm Person spell, it either succeeds or it fails, and the dispel check is used to determine which, much as an SR penetration check, saving throw, or attack roll. Given that a check is not a variable numeric effect of a spell, the second sentence of clarification can be extrapolated to also cover this case.

    However, anything that affects a 'check', without qualifier such as 'ability check', would in fact apply to a dispel check.

    EDIT: Dispel Magic does indeed have a variable, numeric effect. I was wrong about that. The number of rounds that a magic item is suppressed for, normally a 1d4, would be maximized to 4.

    No, generally you've already "paid" the LA cost included into the levels of that class in the first place. A class ability will never have a LA applied to it.

    I believe jdizzlean’s answer is an entirely reasonable interpretation and I fully support using it in a game. I would never rule otherwise myself. However, I don’t believe that it’s ironclad RAW. There’s no rules text saying that you do or that you don’t gain the LA. It’s a gap in the rules and it doesn’t have a “simple RAW” answer. A GM could be justified in ruling either way without being accused of houseruling.

    In the case of an ambiguity like this, I support choosing the option that does less damage to our collective ability to enjoy the game, which is why I completely agree with jdizzlean’s response as a good choice to make. I do not, however, agree that it’s a “RAW” answer, because it isn’t actually stated in RAW.

    This is a pedantic distinction, but given the format of the thread, I believe that it’s worth the quibble.

    By a strict RAW reading then Disciple of Ashardalon for the first 9 levels gains all the abilities of a half fiend save the outsider type. Then once they get fiendish perfection gain them all again. So that means double ability modifiers etc.

    Q 27

    Still on the subject of Empowered/Maximized spells...

    A: A touch spell or ranged touch spell can add sneak attack damage to its normal damage under the right conditions. If the spell is Empowered and/or Maximized, are the d6s of sneak attack damage concerned too?

    B: Corrupt spells and Sanctified spells have a Corruption/Sacrifice cost that is often a random number of ability damage/drain. If such a spell is Empowered and/or Maximized, is the Corruption/Sacrifice affected too? Or the fact that it's a "component" and not strictly an effect of the spell exclude them?

    Neither Sneak Attack nor spell components are "effects" of a spell, so I would say neither is affected by those feats.

    Here are all the spells I could find that can, in my own careful reading of the rules, detect some ongoing supernatural effects. This is probably not a complete list.

    Detect Scrying (Player's Handbook p. 219)

    See Invisibility (Player's Handbook p. 275)

    True Seeing (Player's Handbook p. 296)

    Discern Shapechanger (Spell Compendium p. 66)

    Know Opponent (Spell Compendium p. 129; detects supernatural abilities even when they're not in use)

    I do not know of any supernatural ability that is identified as either arcane or divine. To the best of my knowledge, this distinction applies to spells and probably to the effects of spell-like abilities as well, but I doubt that it applies to supernatural abilities.

    EDIT: The spell Detect Undead (Player's Handbook p. 220) also belongs in this list.

    What actually happens if you cast Transmute Mud to Rock while someone is wholly or partially submerged? The spell says they get a reflex save to avoid it, but not what actually happens.

    I would guess that the creature can jump/swim upwards as the mud hardens and stands on the new stone if he succeeds his reflex save.

    Q 32

    A couple questions about the wording inherent to the various Dominate spells:

    A: My guess is that self-destructive orders count as "against its nature" (unless the subject is suicidal). However, do such commands provoke the new saving throw to break the effect? Since they are "not carried out", the subject has, consequently, never taken an action against its nature.

    B: Still about the "forced to take actions against its nature" part, when does the saving throw happen exactly? Is it after having taken the action, for example after having hurt a loved one? Or does the subject roll the saving throw just before being forced to take the action?

    DM: At the end of the meal, the innkeeper is bringing you the cheese plate. Roll for initiative.
    PC: Excuse me, what?
    DM: I said, roll for initiative. They like their cheese really ripe in these parts. They have the ooze type.


    "Excuse me, but... is it a GOOD or a BAD thing when the DM can't help bursting into laughter every time he hears the phrase 'level-appropriate encounter'? No, just curious..."
