Certain feats are restricted by skill ranks too - I searched high and lo for a feat or ability that would circumvent the level cap, but only found Religiously Driven, which only applies to the Knowledge: Mystery skills.

The spell descriptions have no mention of weight. Oddly, the telekinesis ability of the basic spell conjuring does have an adequate description (move an object up to 5 lbs up to 20ft/round) but nothing you mentioned is covered in the advanced spells. As written, Telekinesis basically has no effect o...

Anyone actually played a prestige class - sorcerous or otherwise? I am curious about that, never seen anyone mention it here before.

why this was left off is beyond me. Even non-sorcerers eventually have a magic attack bonus.

Don't forget the caveat that one has to retain purity in regards to the religion to retain the benefits of the mystery. For Stygian religions (and let's face it, they have the best mysteries) this means wearing only white linen and shaving all body hair.

Suck.

Conan would make for a good HBO series. They have no problem with blood and tits :P and their original series, like Rome, are pretty damn good.

If one of the characters in my game wants to place his life in the hands of some black-hearted Stygian sawbones, he should be aware that such things come with no assurances. Wounds fester, procedures go awry...it isn't as if he's getting a level 12 Cleric of Ilmater to cast a 'Heal' spell on him. S...

The only limit is that you can do just ONE attack. However, among its requirement is "BAB +5". With that BAB you have still Only ONE attack per round, so You will always use that feat each round! On the other hand, if we change the requirement to BAB + 6 or more (I should say BAB +9) one have the a...

Be aware there certainly have been errors, or at least non-sequitirs, regarding the prereqs for spells published in past supplements. Most notabley, in The Scrolls of Skelos, the spell voice of power has itself as a prerequisite. Though obviously a misprint, I like to think it was intended as a joke...

Demonic Pact is a wonderfully fun spell - for the GM. Waste no time in bending the PC over a barrel with this one for now he'll be needing to send a minimum of 1 sacrifice a month the demon's way. The book says sacrifice a creature, but between you and me no pact-making demon worth his sulphur is g...

Are the players actually going to have face them that you need specific stats? That should be an interesting encounter :twisted:

Recommend you check out the stats for various uber-nasties from Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu main book. Or at least the Monstrosity from Hell in the Hyborian Bestiary.
