Q153 what's the most WotC content I can post?
The board is hardly moderated. As long as you don't go crazy(like posting 3+ full pages) no one will care.

Q 155 Are there any exalted feats outside the BoED and PGtF?
Dragon Magazine has Nemisis(reprinted to BoED) and Purify Summoning(summons gain Good subtype).

Q148 There are ways to get an animal companion familiar, and a special mount familiar.  Is there any way to count your psicrystal as a familiar?

Q 152 Can you use move and/or standard actions to do swift actions?  Obviously, not to cast more than one quickened spell in a round, but, for example, if you wanted to shoot the Talon Sceptre more than once in a round?
A 152  No, only standard actions may be swapped for move actions.  Other kinds of actions cannot be swapped.  Under normal circumstances, you get one swift action per round.

Not that I've seen...

But you can also get an animal companion special mount, even an animal companion special mount familiar :P

But not a psicrystal... sigh.  Maybe I can convince the DM to let me get a psicrystal instead of a familiar.

Drop familiar for bonus feat, spend bonus feat on Psicrystal.

Need to have a manifester level, right? Picking the right race could solve that (kalashtar, etc). Also, share powers won't let you share spells with it. I think you're going to need some DM intervention to pull this off, honestly.

Q 57 How do mobs (DMGII) work if the creature naturally has the Diehard feat as a supernatural ability? Do they go beyond the 0 hp mark?

Q 124 Is there a humanoid size snake-like creature you can gain as a cohort when you take Leadership?

Q 154 Other than increasing their Dex, and taking Weapon Focus feats, how does one get a warlock's ranged touch attack up? Tonight he cost the party a huge amount of treasure simply because of the fact that he just couldn't roll over a 5 (the enemy teleported with a majority of it). The guy is systematically a phenomenon. Not quite as bad as The Spoony One's Mike who couldn't roll higher than a 10 for two months straight, but he's getting up there.

The book's in the question. Ithamar was looking for feats outside Player's Guide and Exalted Deeds.

Q 150:  Why are the D&D ship speed rules so... wrong?
Quote from: SRD
Vehicles                                    Per Hour    Per Day
Longship (sailed and rowed)    3 miles    72 miles
Quote from: Stormwrack
Longship ... 1-1/2 mph* (sailed, multiplied by wind modifier) or 2 mph (Rowed)
Even under favorable conditions, with a strong wind (providing a x3 multiplier to the ship's speed) providing for a 4.5 mile per hour sailing speed, it's about 1/3 real world speeds.

Quote from: wikipedia
The average speed of Viking ships varied from ship to ship but lay in the range of 5–10 knots and the maximum speed of a longship under favorable conditions was around 15 knots.
5 knots is ~5.75 mph

So the maximum speed of longships per the ship rules in Stormwrack is equal to the low average speed of real-world longships...

Was this ever addressed in a Sage question or something?

Q 151: Does the gem focus of a Trap the Soul spell detect as magical to a Detect Magic spell?
Also...
Q 156: You can make a grapple check for each iterative attack that your character gets from a high BAB.  How many Grapple checks can an ettin make (it has BAB +7 and two heads)?

There's no limit. That's why they're double priced (slotless) compared to most items.

Q158: Is there an item, spell, or other means to get at least one die of ACTUAL sneak attack that doesn't cost class levels.
Shh. My common sense is tingling. . .

Depends what 'actual' Sneak Attack is. Assassin's Stance, Hunter's Eye, plenty of items whose names I don't remember...

Look up PlzBreakMyCampaign's Sneak Attack record and scavenge it for a list of any and everything that offers Dice.

Q158: Hunter's Eye - Ranger spell from PHB2
Martial Stance: Assassin's Stance (Feat) - Tome of Battle (requires knowing another Shadow Hand maneuver, can be gained via Martial Study feat).


Q 159: I remember there being some set of gloves from the Magic Item Compendium that allowed you to make your spells (or SLA's) deal half damage, but entangle the targets for one round.  What were they called?
