A92 Redux I meant an int cap for the creature it applies to, as in "Int > or less".
[Spoiler]
A gygaxian dungeon is like the world's most messed up game show.

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...
Best metaphor I have seen in a long time.  I give you much fu.
Three Errata for the Mage-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Barbarian-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Monks doomed to die,
One for the Wizard on his dark throne
In the Land of Charop where the Shadows lie.

Is there a way to lower a Undead's Immunity to Mind Effects temporary to allow for Mind Effecting Buff Spells to be applied?

Q98 What are the easiest ways of getting Circle Magic Leader and/or the ability to participate in Circle Magic? I know of Hathran, Red Wizard and Halruan Elder (can you tell of have Realms books only?). What are the others? Any setting/source is fine as long as it's WotC/Dragon.

Q 93 If wizard domains are allowed, and you want to be a necromancer, what's the better way to go about it? Being a universalist and taking the necromancy domain, or actually becoming a specialized necromancer?

A93: Absolutely being a specialist Necromancer.  The Necromancy Wizard Domain adds no spells to your list and contains spells that are generally mediocre (if not plain bad).  What's more, there's really no reason at all for a Necromancer to cast Enchantment spells, and one of Illusion or Evocation is also easily droppable depending on what exact flavor of Wizard Necro you're going for.

Actually I was wondering which Strahd would be best. In the Ravenloft adventure, he's a specialist necromancer that gave up on the illusion and abjuration and illusion, but focused on evocation. In the Dragon Magazine version, he was a necromancer who gave up conjuration and evocation, and specialized in illusions. I was wondering if when I do my campaign with him, if it's not better just to make him a regular wizard and give him the wizard domain instead, but if it's actually weaker to do so, I won't. But it's not like he's got a familiar either. Nor does he have an ACF to replace it.

I see.  If you were looking to re-stat him, yet retain the same kind of shtick, I'd say look up the Uttercold Assault Necromancer.

I was thinking the dread necromancer too. Just wouldn't get the cantrips.

Not that I can recall (though: see the dragon 304 prestige races).  What do you need it for?

Q 95:
Can anyone recommend a couple (few) non-gish melee heavy damage dealing builds that are potent through the leveling process and not just at high levels?  I've been looking for a few days and haven't found much.

Warblade 20

Barbarian 20 (with Lion's Pounce and Whirling Frenzy, basically grab all the ACFs you can)
Halfling Ubercharger

A96 Reach is still 10', reach as a property just doubles the creature's threatened range.

Q97: kevin_video broke our numbering system but I guess I'll go with it... I need your help oh wise sages of the BG forum. I remember coming across an item (I think bracers but maybe gloves) that gave the wearer the Brachiation feat. Does anyone remember where that was from?
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO what a ride!
