    Default [3.5] Planar Question

    If a character had the Tomb-Tainted Soul feat, would the Negative Energy Plane function like the Positive Energy Plane and vice versa?

    Asking mostly out of boredom. And a bit of insomnia.

    No. The Positive energy plane would remain the same(since it grants fast healing and temp HP rather than actually healing you), as would the negative energy plane since it deals untyped damage rather than by neg energy.

    And yes, that is stupid.

    I play primarily 3.5 D&D. Most of my advice will be based off of this. If my advice doesn't apply, specify a version in your post.

    I would say DM's call.

    Then again I am answering mostly out of boredom. And a bit of insomnia.
    I just want someone to hold me and tell me they love me. Especially when I am sad.

    It's not quite that cut-and-dry. Yes, the bonus HP is due to the plane granting fast healing 5, but its also specifically called out as positive energy in the plane's description. Because the TTS feat refers to "being damaged by positive energy," the DM can rule either way.

    Also, the negative energy plane damage is in fact negative energy.

    Anyone with Tomb Tainted Soul will heal (but not gain temp HP) in a minor negative dominant area.

    In the major dominant areas they will take negative levels, so they need to be immune to negative levels/energy drain in order to survive for long in those areas. (Or just have a +24 fort bonus and Steadfast Determination.)
