Doesn't the Madness Tarrasquekiller build use this trick? They have to rise as an allip, by RAW even. Sketchy-as-hell RAW, but RAW nonetheless.

34: Fighters grow an extra foot every other level. They therefore have difficulty going up stairs. Which of course means they can never advance in level, and so not gain extra feet. Which means they have no difficulty going up stairs, so they advance in level, so they grow more feet...

Troll confused.

When you are invisible, your eyelids are invisible too. Therefore, you can close your eyes and still see. However, effects that can be avoided by closing your eyes (like a gaze attack) still don't work anymore.

43. If your race is a troll, you are actually allowed to apply these rules to the actual game. If you are a half troll, only half of these rules apply (DM's choice).
