    Default how many immediate spells can you cast in a row?

    How many immediate spells can you cast in a row?
    this goes specifically to ruin delver's fortune, if you could cast several of them at once (immediate and can be cast on anothers turn) you can just acquire as much HP as you need to survive whatever just hit you.

    the glass is always 100% full. Approximately 50% of its volume is full of dihydrogen monoxide and some dissolved solutes, and approx 50% a mixture of gasses known as "air" which contains roughly (by volume) 78.08% nitrogen, 20.95% oxygen, 0.93% argon, 0.038% carbon dioxide, and trace amounts of other gases.

    An immediate action is a swift action out of turn.

    Not only can you only cast one, but if you cast it, you can't use a Swift Action.

    My cursor was over the title and I read it as "how many immediate spells can you cast on an arrow?"

    Now I want to build a character whose schtick is to cast as many spells as possible on arrows and use them to hinder/kill enemies in entertainingly magical ways.

    One. It burns your swift action for the next turn. You can Read All About It in the SRD.
    Of course, by the time I finish this post, it will already be obsolete. C'est la vie.

    Now then, start out as an Arcane Archer (one spell per arrow) with Smiting Spell (lasts 1 min so theoretically as many as you can cast in a minute), and you're already well on your way. I guess you could use Arrow of Bone with Flame Arrow cast on it too. If there were a way to get Spell Storing on arrows...

    But yeah, that's a good start [/Oooh, shiny!]

    Two, actually. On your turn, cast as a swift action. End your turn. Cast another one as an immediate action.

    This is why "free actions that you can take when it's not your turn" are better.

    Also, one of the possibilities for Beholder Mages casting immediate-action spells.

    I... er... also got drawn into this thread by accident.

    (Mage's) Slumber Arrows can add a Will or fall asleep. Not too good, but it's another effect, and at 11th level it will last longer than a minute, so you can pile Smiting spells into the arrow from there. And if they fail the save, well, the baddies lose.

    Smiting Spells seem to be unusable on bows (or any weapon that requires ammunition) but they don't specifically prohibit ammunition. Bwa ha ha...

    Shrink Item on Colossal Arrows would add an extra conceivable effect. Not sure if it would do anything, you'd probably be having a heck of a time to houserule the effect, but having your ridiculous arrows expand inside a target could hurt them a lot. Or, fill the Colossal arrowhead with acid before shrinking it.

    Would a True Strike count, as it only affects the one attack?
    That is not dead which can eternal lie
    And with strange aeons even death may die.

    Expand for quotes.
