Q218 Is there any way to boost Meldshaper Level?  The only thing that came to mind is Incarnate + Necrocarnate + Bloodline
Eh, the wizard have more money than them combined, he could in theory just use all his money on a fleet of trained attack mules, but then we aren't playing 3.5 but zergling rushing in Starcraft instead.

Q219 I asked before but I don't think it was answered, Can Wish and limited Wish duplicate psionic powers?
What about mysteries from shadowcaster Utterances from truenamer and Invocations from warlock?

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.

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

Q216
Sacred exorcist maybe?
why would a warmage have only a 10 int?

3 reasons: Concentration, Spellcraft and Knowledge (Arcana). I don't care much for Warmage's Edge, and thus I only use int for skills. Sacred Excorcist is always a nice option, but it would be nice to find something that were a little less demanding in the skill point department.. Is there another option?

Eh, I'm a skill point junkie, I guess.

Could always grab Planar Touchstone: Catalogus of Enlightenment to grab the Sun domain power, which nets you a turning ability. Other than that, nothing I know of would allow you to progress existing spellcasting and provide turning.

Q220:Aside from web material, Dragon material, and Savage Species, are there any other WotC books with monster class savage progressions?

Wish: "Duplicate any other spell of 6th level or lower, provided the spell is not of a school prohibited to you."

IMO as a DM, yes, but I don't know of any specific RAW. I believe Utterances and certainly Invocations have an effective "spell level". You're definitely covered up to Greater Invocations for Wish, but Dark can go over 6th.
Psionics I suppose falls under whatever transparency your campaign is running under, matching up the disciplines to schools if you have any banned.

FWIW, the most often used case in my games - I allow Limited Wish to replicate Psychic Reformation, of course, at the most dis-favorable XP cost RAW.

Q 221 A friend of mine who plays 4th was saying that they've introduced the headless horseman in one of the new online dragon magazines. Is there such a creature in 3.5?

One of the halloween articles on the WotC site had him, not sure when, though.

I think it was one of the death knights, actually. They didn't explain the missing head part though.

Q 222:
For spells that grant you a Gaze Attack for a duration (Freezing Glance from Frostburn for example), is it assumed that it takes a Standard Action to use?

A222: No. By default, gaze attacks require no action to use. For the sake of balance, most* gaze attacks from powers or spells do require some action to activate (like the Eyes of the Basilisk power from Complete Psionic) or otherwise carry some restrictions (Freezing Glance can only affect one target per round).

*Cast in Stone (Spell Compendium) carries no restrictions, oddly enough.

Gaze Attacks are way more bitchin' than that.

Q223: A Druid 11 has Rapid Spell, and a 6th level spell slot devoted to a Rapid Spelled SNA 5. They also have a Ring of the Beast. Do they still get the effect of a SNA 6 or does the metamagic bit violate the clause on the ring?

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.

A223
it kinda depends on interpretation:
in this case, "normal" would be a "rapid spell SNA" ... which would mean no (at least, AFAIC, RAI-wise)

a much more liberal interpretation, on the other hand .....

If you stop ignoring 289 pages telling what the intent is to stretch "more power" in your own god complexion of your interpretation trumps all to cover ability adjustments from aging then I will ignore a quarter page of rules that exist within a sidebar.
I think in this case the grammar is less important than whether the Str and Dex bonus provided to your created undead scales.
