Well the APG one that lets you share rage powers with your mount can get pretty comedic if you got a barbarian to ride a barbarian...especially since it shares the power to share rage powers.

And the things it reflects in, like water or glass, can all be broken, right? Since the moon you see in the sky is just being reflected in the heavens, if you tear open the heavens it's easy to break it~"

Behind door number one: INSTANT DEATH!
Behind door number 2: A magic crown!
Behind door number 3: 4d6 giant bees, and THREE HUNDRED POUNDS OF HONEY!
They don't/haven't, was the point. 3.5 is as dead as people not liking nice tits.

Sometimes, their tits (3.5) get enhancements (houserules), but that doesn't mean people don't like nice tits.

Though sometimes, the surgeon (DM) botches them pretty bad...

Q29 (should be 29 after all that barb riding barb stuff)
Quote
Sleeping in Armor: A character who sleeps in medium or heavy armor is automatically fatigued the next day. He takes a –2 penalty on Strength and Dex and can't charge or run.

if a druid in medium armor wildshapes into an animal for sleep, will he be fatigued too (as he isnt sleeping in armor)? (considering the shape lasts long enough, but it should at lvl8+)

A29

While you still have the armour on your sheet, it's melded to your form, so you're no really wearing it per se, so you won't get fatigued.

Q30
got a question about the fire seeds spell and eschew materials feat:
do they work together?
i somehow doubt that 8 holly berries or some acorns cost more then 1 gp and thus eschew materials should work here.
though then, if you leave the materials away, to the grenades/bombs get created out of thin air?
or does it just not work cause you need the berries for the spell, even though the feat would work RAW?

Q31
intensified spell says:
Quote
An intensified spell increases the maximum number of damage dice by 5 levels...No other variables of the spell are affected, and spells that inf lict damage that is not modified by caster level are not affected by this feat
at first its talking about damage dice, near the end its talking about all damage modified by caster level
so now the actual question: can this be applied to spells which deal a fixed dice damage but a static damage modified by CL?
things like produce flame: caps at 1d6+5. can an intensified produce flame go up to 1d6+10?

No, it means things like fireball are effected, since damage is dice/cl, while things like Energy drain, which do a fixed number of dice irrelevant to cl, are not.

Q32:  I'm pretty sure the answer is no, but do animal companions start with their listed HD if they're not from the core rulebook?  Or are they stuck with the HD listed on the animal companion chart?  My problem is the Sable Company Marine feat from Guide to Korvosa, which grants you a hippogriff(5 HD) as an animal companion.  The book, while Pathfinder, came out before the core rulebook, so it still uses 3.5 rules.

I have a 5 in Charisma and Diplomacy is a cross-class skill.  Hopefully I don't piss off too many people.

That's what I thought, but I had to ask.  Thanks.

Q33: The Moonlight Bridge revelation of the Heavens mystery for oracles (APG 48) says the bridge "can extend in any direction for 10 feet per oracle level". Can it bend mid-path? Can its starting direction be vertical?

I don't know of any precedents, so you could use it that way.

Q34

I'm playing a Sorcerer with the Arcane Bloodline. At level 1 I get an Arcane Bond as a 1st level Wizard, I'm a bit uncertain about what it actually does though, since it normally lets you cast an extra spell from your spellbook, since I'm a Wizard I don't have one. Do I have to take this class feature, since it seems more like a hinderance than a boon?

well, its 1 more spell per day, nothing that great for a sorc
you also could take the familiar though
or take an alternate class feature to swap the familiar for if 3.5 sources are allowed
