    No preference, and buff time is fine. The other game is completely stalled out so I figured I'd pop over here.

    I should note I'm doing this so I can get a feel for high level stuff. I've been in one game that went beyond level 5 and that was a pretty fail campaign so I have virtually no experience at high levels, and literally no experience out of core.

    Perfectly fine. The ToS is how I got good at high level optimization...I could barely make a decent charger before this.

    Yeah. You see 9 humans, milling about each other passing time chatting each other up slightly. If you can read lips you notice they're all talking at the same time and saying the exact same thing.

    You see a tall man dressed in black robes. His hands shine with some unearthly force.

    He makes a swift gesture at you, and you feel all of your magical protections draining away...

    Please list all of your non-Abjuration Buff Spells with a CL of 20 or less, and all of your Abjuration Buffs with a CL of 24 or less.

    I cast Spell Theft. All of your buffs are dispelled, and I gain all of them.

    Suddenly, there are 9 men instead of one. They cruelly smirk before shooting thin, green rays at you.

    If this hits, you are slowed with no saving throw.

    I auto-succeed my spellcraft check to identify it, and activate my Ring of Spell Battle to turn it back on you.

    EDIT: The spell theft, not the other thing.

    Assuming that's supposed to represent your leftover Spell Turning, shouldn't it be 1d4+1 instead of 1d6+1?

    EDIT: I'll also need to see the magical auras on you, strength and school. I see them before you stole my Arcane Sight.

    But Stinking Cloud is poison, right? I'm immune to poison.

    Plus, while slowed, you may not take swift actions.

    In that case, take the acid fog and not the cloud. Duration on the slow effect?

    16 more rounds.

    Swift Action: Cast Sanctum Dispel Magic on the cloud, automatically dispelling it (assuming your caster level hasn't increased since you cast your buffs).
    Standard Action: Arcane Fusion, creating a giant blast of light that rushes towards you.

    RTA (1d20+32)[38]
    Damage (15d6)[56]
    Also, if this hits, roll a DC 22 Will Save or be dazed for one turn.

    EDIT: End Turn
    EDIT2: Well, there are really four ways to get better. One, get explanation and "training" from a better optimizer. Two, read handbooks. Three, build random characters and test them on their effectiveness. Four, fight other characters so that you can see their inner workings.

    Maybe not, depending on an upcoming ruling.

    The ruling in question is whether or not you can define a contingent Limited Wish when it is triggered. If you have some other means of obtaining FoM, the match is unaffected by this, but that contingency ruling may affect it otherwise.

    You don't have to define it when you prepare it...I fail to see why one would have to define it for the contingency.

    Also, it isn't unbalanced; it is a very expensive one shot item.

    I've brought this up with the other DMs, since I'm not entirely sure about it.

    I'm pretty confident you can't do this with a Contingency spell (putting aside the level limit for now) because Contingency specifies that the spell is cast when the Contingency is cast, and that it simply takes place later when it is triggered. Since you make decisions about a spell when you cast it, you need to determine the effect when you cast it with the Contingency. So Contingency: Teleport would need to define a destination when made contingent.

    Craft Contingent Spell is less exact in its wording. Infuriatingly vague, even. Consequently I'm less sure of my argument here. It does say that it takes effect upon the bearer, which means that you are the target of the Limited Wish. The question is if you can be considered the caster as well.
