Can someone explain to be me the Gloom's level advancement progression? It says "25+ HD (Medium-size)". Does this mean that it can forever progression infinitely, and will never get bigger than medium size or have anything more than its dagger? Is there something else I'm missing?
Yeah, that's how it works.

Q347:Do you think that a Wish can duplicate the Fusion power?
In a related question would you allow fusion as a spell?

Q349: Is there any way to alter a Glyph of Warding or any variation of Glyph of Warding that would allow it to store a harmless spell like Distilled Joy?

Q 350: How many ways are there to aquire a mantle, and is there support for a "psionic" version of Planar Touchstone (i.e. snag a mantle instead of a domain, as that seems to be the psionic analogue)?

EDIT : Also...

Q 351: Is there any support/info for epic bloodlines?

As far I as know the answer to both is no,now I have seen Homebreed versions but I can't remember where and I doubt that this is what you want....

Edited for typo.....

Q352

What is the most recent printing of the Living Construct subtype? There's some discrepancy between different ones; for instance, according to Magic of Incarnum, Living Constructs don't gain bonus HP for having a Con score. I'm wondering which one is most recent and thus supersedes everything else.
So you end up stuck in an endless loop, unable to act, forever.

In retrospect, much like Keanu Reeves.

I am pretty sure that the most recent is in monster manual 5.....
There it says that it gains hit point normally for constitution bonus just like other creatures .....

Bump these three...
Q 344a Can the spell, Arms of Plenty, be put on a thri-kreen for an additional two claw attacks? Also, how does it work if they're supposed to be the primary attack? For instance, the bite is usually the primary attack with the claws being second. So does this mean that the bite and those claws are the primary, but the other claws would be secondary?

Q 344b Can you use that spell to wield multiple weapons instead of doing claw attacks?

Q 345 Does the weapon property, Transmuting, work against DR X/-?

Druids aren't that hindered by it.
IMO Druids and Polymorphing Wizards or Gishes are actually, genuinely, entirely bolstered by VoP, although Gishes will lose out on some sweet bonuses.

VoP means a wizard can't have a spellbook. Still think it's a good idea.

There is: Kill shit and loot the corpse!
When you use a tool the way it was designed for -- its intended function -- then it will work very well for you.

But it's not the tool's fault if you use it for something else and you fail utterly, such as trying to eat cereal with a butterknife, pounding nails with a screwdriver, blogging to voice your political opinions, and brushing your teeth with a hammer.

VoP means a wizard can't have a spellbook. Still think it's a good idea.

For eidetic wizards it's playable, or in campaigns where the DM acknowledges that the spellbook thing is probably an oversight.

It's still not 100% benefit. Even a polymorph-heavy wizard benefits from having access to expensive components - especially a polymorph wizard, really, since Shapechange has an expensive focus. He also benefits from being able to buy scrolls to expand his spell list, from being able to acquire wands or staves of utility spells that he might not want to prepare every day, from having wealth with which to bargain in a Planar Binding, from having metamagic rods to bolster his buffs, from Pearls of Power for extra spell slots, and so on and so on.

Druids have these concerns as well, on top of Wilding Clasps and whichever armor enchantment lets the armor function while Wild Shaped.

I'm actually thinking of a build, right now, for a Wizard that takes VoP from level 1 and is still awesome.  It will, however, require a bit of re-training, and also require him to gain knowledge of his spells by visiting with other wizards and asking to study their spellbooks for a time.
