    Do Dvati share the 8 hrs per day of magic item crafting time limit or does each twin get it's own?

    A64 clarification Dvati function as a normal, non-dvati character unless otherwise specified. They accrue and earn xp normally, for example. They craft as a non-dvati, because the rules do not say otherwise. At best, you could probably get your dm to have one body craft as long as the other takes no actions (like spellcasting) but nothing else.

    Q 67

    The sleepsmoke poison (waterdeep) affects a globe 10 feet in diameter on the first round, expanding outward to a globe 20 feet in diameter on the second round.

    At what points in the initiative order do creatures who are exposed in the original 10 ft effect area and succeed the first save make their second save? Start of round? Start of their turn? Counting 1 turn from the initial exposure? Something else?

    Q68: I gave a homebrew creature the ability to get maximum hit points for every hit dice. I wonder what would be the proper way to write it in the monster sheet.
    Because
    Hit dice: 60d10+60 (660 hp)
    looks rather dumb

    As a general rule, when an effect is prolonged over several rounds, the damage/saving throws are always done on the same initiative turn than when it is started. So, it should be the start of the turn of the character who deployed the poison.

    Q69
    I have a mindless vermin
    I apply the paragon template as an inherited template
    then I hit it with Mineralize Warrior from the Underdark book.
    The mineral warrior template says "-2 Int (minimum 1)"

    Did my mindless vermin just gain an intelligence score?
    If so, does the paragon template jack that 1 up to a 16?

    A69 Only humanoids are eligible for mineralize warrior. You can't apply it to vermin.

    But let's say you had an int - humanoid somehow. - is not 0. It's a null value. - minus 2 is still -. It doesn't rubber band up to 1 from things like mineral warrior. It's the same reason you can't give a vermin a headband of intellect to put its int to 2.

    Yes. The razored shield from Underdark is treated as a spiked shield but deals slashing damage instead of piercing. As for a bludgeoning equivalent, no, but a non-spiked light or heavy shield can be used in a shield bash to deal bludgeoning damage.

    This third imaskarcana says "Anyone who successfully communicates with the tome can use the following powers as spell-like abilities (caster level 18th), each once per day: dominate monster, imprisonment, meteor swarm (DC 23), and time stop."

    Does this mean if one party member has it, each player that can talk it gains access to the spells?

    Correction

    The spell specifically references the creature's original form. Additionally, per PHB 172, when a spell like polymorph any object is cast multiple times with varying effects, all castings except the most recent are rendered irrelevant.

    That depends on whether you consider the damage to be dealt by the lance or not.

    I'm assuming based on context that this is with a mounted charge, so there is no action conflict.

    I think the accepted standard is that gates and other planar openings don't allow atmospheres to mix/bodies of water to go through (in which case, the answer is no), but I'm not sure it is actually stated somewhere in the rules.


    Q 74
    I do realize this one goes without question for the class feature to simply work, but nonetheless: is it clearly stated anywhere in the rules that familiars don't grow old (or gain the same longevity as their masters) rather than keeping the much shorter lifespan of a normal animal?

    A74 Not explicitly, but the creature's type does change to magical beast, so you could explain their longevity that way if for whatever reason you needed to.

    Q75
    I have a question about Starmetal. On Comp Arc, pg 141, it says that starmetal is like Adamantine and can overcome damage reduction like Adamantine, and states to look at Adamantine on page 283 of the DMG.
    However, looking at that page, I don't see anywhere where Adamantine overcomes DR. I only see it bypassing hardness.
    So, is starmetal only meant to overcome Hardness? Or is overcoming DR supposed to be in addition to overcoming hardness?

    Some Damage Reduction is overcome by Adamantine weapons, written as DR XX/Adamantine (example: the iron golem). A weapon made of Starmetal would overcome such DR.

    Q 76

    About the "Supernatural Spell" feature of a Dweomerkeeper...

    Considering the above, and the general rule about supernatural abilities...

    My guess is that a Supernatural Spell cannot be counterspelled either (no components, like a spell-like ability), but would that also makes the spell immune to ordinary dispel magic?
