    Wielding larger weapons does not change your reach. This can lead to very questionable imagery if you look closely into the weapon's dimensions. For example, having a 30-feet sword that only hits up to 15 feet, and basically passes through farther targets like an illusion.

    A 107 Addendum

    To answer the exact question, your reach is 20 feet. You are an upright, large-sized creature (base reach 10 feet) wielding a reach weapon (doubles reach) for 10*2=20 feet reach.

    No. Arcane Fusion requires you to draw off of the sorcerer list specifically. Sublime Chords draw off the wizard/sorcerer and bard lists.

    Q 109

    The rules for dismissing a spell state you must be "within range of the spell’s effect".

    Does "range" in this context refer to the range at which the spell is cast (e.g long/touch/etc), or do you have to be within the area of effect/in touching distance?

    A110 If you mean can you be brought to 0 in that ability, yes. If you mean can it be removed, No. bonuses of any type interact normally with ability damage and drain.

    e.g. you have 16 int and +5 inherent bonus for int of 21. enemies blast you with a bunch of rays of stupidity, dealing 21 int damage to you and you pass out. your friends kill all the enemies and cast restoration on you. you're reset to 21 int as normal. the ability damage hasn't "removed" your inherent bonus any more than it would remove the bonus from a headband of intellect.

    Addendum—powerful build and Monkey Grip don't stack. They both allow you to wield weapons one size larger than your actual size category, which is Medium.

    The bonus increases the score, the damage or drain reduces the score. Perform addition and subtraction appropriately.

    Q 114
    Does Alter Self stack with size buffs? Size buffs don't stack, but Alter Self merely "assumes the form" of a creature within one size category of your "normal" size. So if you had a permanent bonus increasing your size to Large, could you then Alter Self into a Huge creature?

    A 114 contention
    I believe it would depend on the nature of the permanent size buff.

    If you have a permanent enlarge person effect then your normal size remains whatever it is without the size increase - but the size increase effect will need to be adjudicated for the new form.
    If you manage to find a compatible form that is large, and use alter self to take its form the enlarge person effect then needs to be evaluated for your current form. If you current form is a viable target for enlarge person then you become one size larger, if not then the enlarge person effect persists having no effect until the alter self runs out, at whcih point it is rechecked against your normal form and then enlarges you again.

    Precise results depend on the type of enlargement effect in play.

    Note: a permanent buff is one that can potentially be dispelled or ended, an inherent or instantaneous one changes your base size "for good". If the effect can be removed it is not classified as your "normal" state.

    A 114 Continuation

    I agree with Khedrac in principle, but also would point out that alter self is type-limited, so if your natural form qualifies for enlarge person (i.e., your natural form is of the humanoid type), then any form you take with alter self should also qualify (because it should also be humanoid).

    A114 Correction Alter self is not an effect that changes size. It changes shape entirely. If a (medium) human uses alter self to turn into an asp naga (large) then alter self, permanent or not, makes him huge.

    A 115

    My understanding is that if you are calculating NPC wealth, it looks at their ECL - which includes class levels, RHD and LA.

    Obviously, if it is a monster encounter, you refer to CR for treasure, rather than ECL.

    Saying that someone reading RAW differently than you is "home brewing or house ruling, but that's fine" doesn't make you right, it just makes you seem pompous.

    Q116 How does "passes through" function in the silence spell?

    e.g. I am standing in a hallway less than 20 feet wide. if, way down the hall, there are some enemies, but a 20 foot lump of silence lies between us that neither they nor I am in, can I hear them or not? does the sound they make not travel "through" the silence, or does that clause mean something else? if so, what?

    If the bubble of silence extends all the way to walls and ceiling, it would mean sound doesn't pass through the air in that area. The walls block Line of Effect, thus sound passes through them normally. Anyone attempting a Listen check would suffer the normal penalties for listening through walls.

    Q117

    The Psionic class Ardent selects powers based on their character's level, ie, if they are level 3, they can select a power from one of their mantles that they have selected that costs 3 power points or less to manifest. Does this mean that the Ardent is capable of manifesting a 3rd-level power at level 3?

    By RAW, it would only deal Piercing and Bludgeoning damage. By RAI, it might differ, though. The spell was never made having ironwood or bronzewood in mind.
