Turning outsiders
« on: October 02, 2011, 11:17:00 PM »
I'm planning on DMming a planar campaign and one of my players have asked what the rules are for turning outsiders.

Does anyone have experience with this?

What happens when the monster is on his native plane and how should turn resistance work?

Thanks.

Dave

I'm going to assume that said player has the Planar Turning Epic Feat, or possibly the outsider in question has a subtype like (Fire) and your player picked up the Water, Fire, or Cold domains.  In either of these situations, it works *exactly* the same as Turn/Rebuke Undead.  If neither of these apply, then turn undead is only useful when burning turn attempts for Divine feats.

Just not all Divine Feats. Some specifically call out Turn Undead while others say turn attempts. I personally let it fly no matter what kind of turn attempt but i also don't have characters try to get 6 domains with turn abilities and DMM: Persist either.
Clerics and Druids are like the 4 and 2 in 42. Together they are the answer to the ultimate question in D&D.
Retire the character before the DM smacks you with the Table as the book will feel totally inadequate now.-Hazren
