Q204: I know there was an item somewhere that increases SNA by a level (cast SNA 4, and it's effectively SNA 5, say). But where the hell is it? Druid handbook doesn't have an item section... :banghead

Sunic may be more abrasive than sandpaper coated in chainsaws (not that its a bad thing, he really does know what he's talking about), but just posting in this thread without warning and telling him he's an asshole which, if you knew his past experiences on WotC and Paizo is flat-out uncalled for. Never mind the insults (which are clearly 4Chan-level childish). You say people like Sunic are the bane of the internet? Try looking at your own post and telling me you are better than him.

Here's a fun fact: You aren't. By a few leagues.

Q 201 Did I imagine it, or is there a flaw or trait that makes you count as one size smaller than your race normally is?

There's the dungeonbred template from Dungeonscape.  Pathfinder has the young creature template.  If this is related to your warforged question, Monster Manual III has a small version of warforged called warforged scout.

Q207How does the feat Masterspellthief (CSco) interacts with caster level advancing prg classes? Example I have a Spellthief/Wizard/Eldritch Knight with master spellthief keyed to Wizard, do I count eldritch knight levels for the purpose of the feat?

Yes, you can wear them, and yes the base armor bonuses stack. Any enhancement bonuses on them don't, however. So if you have a +1 dastana, +2 chahar-aina, and +5 chain shirt, you'd get a total bonus of 11 from them, not 14. You can however add other enchantments to them, and they will all work together just fine.

Q206: Are there rules for delivering two touch attacks with the same action, if one is a touch spell (Standard action) and the other an Su ability (no action mentioned in its entry), for example (and in what order do the effects happen)?

I thought this was at least mentioned as being possible in the Dread Necromancer write-up... or am I just crazy? It's possible as long as they don't both require conflicting action types. I am not sure what order you'd resolve them in.

Q206. Is there any way to learn Spell-Likes wih Wild Shape other than Planar Shepherd?

Shame even epic feats such as Improved Elemental Wild Shape won't give me that, i could use some Elemental Weird divinations now and then...

You're trying to add more power to a druid. Bad gamer *swats with newspaper*. ;)

Can't you just pay a cleric to cast divinations for you? Or isn't there a cleric or wizard in the party who can do that kind of stuff?

I bet if you dig around in enough splatbooks, you could probably find something on the druid list that would work for you, anyway...  :nonono

Q 207

I cant seem to recall if you can simply dismiss your own permanent spell effect ie: If I use Baleful Polymorph, to allow my Fleshraker AC to blend in better in closed minded towns that might take offense to a velociraptor in the tavern. Would I have to cast polymorph to return it to its natural badass form or could I just end the spell effect?

A207Any spell with a "(D)" in the duration line is dispellable with a standard action by the caster.

Q203: How does cowering interact with the other steps of fear? i.e. if Imperious Command is used on someone already shaken - what happens? Clearly in round 2 the enemy is frightened, but does he still cower normally in the second round?

Q203(b):
If you have imperious command, can you do a normal demoralize action (only increase fear by one step)? i.e. Shaken enemy, use imperious command, they cower, on the next round they are frightened, while they are frightened hit with a normal demoralize action to panic them.
A203: You are correct; cowering is the "highest" state of fear in D&D.
A203b: Given the way Imperious Command is written, no. The feat simply modifies the ability to Intimidate, and thus you can't prevent that without opting to ignore the feat altogether.

Q210*: Is there any class ability that functions similarly to Beastland Ferocity and that has few restrictions? (For instance, Deathless Frenzy would work if it didn't require one to be in a frenzy.) This is intended for an Illithilich/Illithid Savant (arena), so just about any class is fair game.

*We had two copies each of 206 and 207.

Any other noninstantaneous spell you cast can be ended with "End" from Kingdoms of Kalamar, cast from a slot equal to the slot the spell was cast from.
