    Default Simple Q&A D&D 3.5 (by RAW) XV

    (This is a fairly high procedure thread; please read the entire instructions carefully before posting. Thanks.)

    Ever have a simple, straight-forward rules question that you can’t figure out the answer to? Ask it here. No question is too simple. No more worrying about whether your question is “worth” starting a thread. Ask here and receive an answer. You are, of course, welcome to start a thread for your question, and if you think your question is subject to many interpretations or will start a debate, you are encouraged to start a new thread for it.

    This thread will serve as a catch-all for simple, discreet questions that can be answered quickly according to the RAW (Rules As Written). This thread is for all simple RAW questions about D&D 3.5.

    If your question is about D&D 4e or some other system, ask here
    If your question is about real world weapons and armor ask it here.
    If your question is about homebrew rulings start a thread here.
    If you are looking for the meaning of an acronym or abbreviation look here.
    If you want to find a certain feat or ability, Lists of Stuff and X stat to Y bonus are both useful threads.

    The Procedure:

    Do:
    Label your questions with bold Q#s.
    Label your answers with the bold Q# that you are responding to and/or quote the question.
    Be sure that your answer is correct before you post it; if you are the least bit uncertain, just let it pass and get the next one.
    Try to give your answers in as clear and straightforward terms as possible.
    Feel free to quote or link to relevant rules in the SRD, Errata, or FAQ that supports your answer. (You may want to give your answer and then modify it to add support – otherwise someone else may answer while you’re assembling yours.)
    Specify if your question is for a system other than D&D (the default for this thread).

    Don’t:
    Ask Homebrew rules questions here.
    Ask trick questions or attempt to “stump the panel,” so to speak.
    Answer a question that’s already been answered.
    Offer contradictions, clarifications, exceptions, or extensions of prior answers unless, in your opinion, the answer give is plainly and completely wrong.
    Post to debate the answers given.
    Post to carry on other conversations whether tangentially related or wholly unrelated.

    Dispute Resolution Procedure:
    If you dispute someone’s answer – meaning that they got it wrong in a critical fashion – post your answer and suggest that the original questioner start a thread to discuss it further if they want it hashed out.
    If someone disputes your answer, don’t respond. Just wait to see if the original questioner starts a new thread to discuss it.
    If your question leads to a disputed answer, start a new thread if you’d like it discussed further.

    Here are some sample questions. “Bad” questions just mean they should be asked in their own thread where you can get many answers and opinions. “Good” questions just mean that these are the types of questions that are amenable to a quick straightforward answer (probably).

    Sample “Bad” Questions:
    How do I play D&D? (Great question, but not for this thread.)
    What is a good 10 level TWF build? (Far too broad and requires much opinion)
    What +2 LA race should I take for my sorcerer build? (Again, an opinion question)
    Which is better GURPS or D&D?

    Sample “Good” Questions:
    Q.1. Are there any Large +0 LA races?
    Q.2. As a sorcerer/rogue, do I get to add sneak attack damage to my attack spells?
    Q.3. What effect would Dispel Magic have on a golem or similar construct?
    Q.4. Is there a feat that allows me to get a familiar?

    {The first several versions of this thread seemed to run pretty efficiently, but if you have any comments about how this thread could be improved please PM me.}

    Please start over with the numbering. Thanks.

    Q3

    The multiweapon feat indicated that it replaced the two weapon fighting feat for creature with more than 2 arms. The question is, can I use it to qualify for feat from the two weapon -fighting line, such as two weapon defense or oversized two weapon fighting ?

    Unfortunately, the feat does not say it can be used as a substitute requirement for Two-Weapon Fighting, so the RAW answer is no.

    It's a reasonable RAI ruling to allow it, of course.

    While this is likely a partial list, here's what I've been able to find:

    Base Classes:

    Cleric (PH) [any two of your deity's domains]
    Cloistered Cleric (UA) [any two of your deity's domains, plus Knowledge domain]

    Prestige Classes:

    Church Inquisitor (CDiv) [Inquisition domain]
    Contemplative (CDiv) [any one of your deity's domains, plus one more at 6th level]
    Divine Oracle (CDiv) [Oracle domain]
    Maiden of Pain (PGF) [Pain domain]
    Ordained Champion (CChamp) [War domain - Clerics only]
    Rainbow Servant (CDiv) [Good (1st), Air (4th), and Law (7th) domains]
    Seeker of the Misty Isle (CDiv) [Travel (1st) and Magic (7th) domains]
    Temple Raider of Olidammera (CDiv) [Luck (10th) domain]
    Warpriest (CDiv) [Glory or Dominion domain]

    The Cleric grants two of course, and the Cloistered Cleric variant adds the Knowledge Domain for free.

    There's a huge number of PrCs that grant domains, including:

    Ordained Champion from Complete Champion

    Church Inquisitor, Contemplative, Divine Crusader, Divine Oracle, Radiant Servant of Pelor, Rainbow Servant, Sacred Exorcist, Seeker of the Misty Isle, Temple Raider of Olidammera, and Warpriest from Complete Divine

    Dracolyte from Draconomicon

    Swift Wing from Dragon Magic

    Arachnomancer from Drow of the Underdark

    Sovereign Speaker from Faiths of Eberron

    Divine Disciple and Eye of Horus-Re from The Player's Guide to Faerun

    Singer of Concordance from Races of the Dragon

    Yuan-Ti Cultist from Savage Species

    Wavekeeper from Stormwrack

    I'm sure there are more out there too.

    The Lists of Stuff provide answers to this and many other questions.

    Additionally, the combination of Domain Granted Power ACF (Complete Champion, page 52) and Arcane Disciple feat (Complete Divine, page 79) can let a Wizard gain all aspects of a doman (granted power + spells).

    Can the empathic link from a familiar be used by the master to target creatures with spells?

    I'm thinking about spells such as Magic Missile. I think not, but I'd like to know for sure. Thanking you in advance for your wisdom.

    A 4 (numbering corrected)

    No. The empathic link does not provide enough data to target a spell:

    The master has an empathic link with his familiar out to a distance of up to 1 mile. The master cannot see through the familiar’s eyes, but they can communicate empathically. Because of the limited nature of the link, only general emotional content can be communicated.

    A5 Extrapolating from the table provided, it would cost 500 XP and 20 gp (the cost of researching Mage Armor). However, there's technically no RAW answer.

    A5: By RAW, only spells called out as being Permanenciable (either in the spell's description, or in Permanency's spell description) can be made permanent.

    Anything other is purely in DM's purview.

    Mage armor is not on the list of spells that can be made permanent by Permanency.

    Therefore, it is not possible (by RAW, ask your DM otherwise).

    Q6

    When a player encounters a pit trap and fails their reflex save, would you consider the game to now be on "rounds"?

    And if so - is it "surprise round"

    My question regards the use of immediate actions not being able to be used on surprise round when you are surprised due to being flat-footed.

    At the very least, the player would be flat-footed due to not having had their turn yet. So no, they would not be able to make use of immediate actions.

    Q6&A6 - further clarification...

    So by RAW or RAI you'd say a wizard in said situation could or could not use a featherfall spell to not take dmg from falling into said...75-100ft pit trap?

    Feather Fall's spell description states that "You can cast this spell with an instant utterance, quickly enough to save yourself if you unexpectedly fall." This overrides the normal limitation on immediate actions while flat-footed. The wizard would be able to prevent the damage with this spell.

    Nothing in the spell's description would indicate that it transfers to a new form. Even if the new form has identical types of natural weapons, they are not the same natural weapon -- you choose a specific natural weapon to enhance at the time of casting the spell. Therefore, the spell is still in effect, but is suppressed while in that alternate form, at least until its duration expires.

    A8: No, using larger weapons (even larger reach weapons) doesn't grant any more reach than a properly sized one would. A reach weapon too small doesn't grant reach.

    No. Reach is a function of character size and weapon type. Increasing the size of a weapon does not affect its reach.

    Thank, then I was understanding it properly.

    Q9

    Is a larger than mansized longsword a medium size greatsword?

    I ask being the damage is the same. (larger than mansize longsword = 2d6 - greatsword = 2d6)

    And to follow up the question - with monkey grip, could a medium creature wield a huge longsword in two hands being a huge longsword is a larger than mansize gsword?

    Q10

    This one might be a bit tricky.

    Someone cast a three thunders (Car p76) heartfire (SPC p112) spell on a creature dealing 2 point of damage half elctrik and half sonic . If the creature succed on a fort save she only take half damage to a minimum of 1. The thing is that the creature as electrik resistance 5 if she make the fort save who chose the damage type of the 1 point of damage ?
    The creature, following the rule of applying the bonus and penality in the most beneficial order or the caster following the same rule ?

    Its important because three tunders secondary effect are only triggered when the spell deal damage.

    A9 A): No, a Large longsword is a Large longsword. A medium creature can wield it two-handed, but suffers -2 penalty to attacks.

    A10: The Sage's ruling (not RAW) is that the effects are applied in the order most beneficial to the "owner" of the effect, in this case, the caster.

    A 9

    No. In 3.0 it was, in 3.5 it is not. A Large longsword is not the same as a Medium greatsword.

    A 10

    Irrelevant. The target takes 1 electric and 1 fire damage on a failed save; 1/2 electric and 1/2 fire damage, each rounded down to 0, and a successful save. There is no choosing which type involved.
