Q55: In any of the sourcebooks out there, is there a monk special weapon with reach? Or a way for a monk to flurry with a reach weapon? (I'm looking for an actual weapon, not a feat like long arms or such).

A 55: Tiger-something style, from Secret of Sarlone, is a feat, granted, but it turns the twin TigerHook Swords into a reach weapon.
And Serpent Strike from the ECS lets you flurry with a longspear.

To add to that: Polemaster from Secrets of Sarlona grants one Poleweapon as a Monk weapon.

Q 56 Is there a spear/polearm handbook somewhere with the optimum feats a person should take to be a master of the weapon? I thought I saw feats in a Dragon Magazine that were specific to spears, but maybe I was imagining things.

Dragon #331 has a polearm section somewhere around page 24. Everything in the chapter is also in Dragon Compendium.

There's also a polearm-wielding class called the Lancer in AEG's War book, page 60-ish. Prereqs can be a pain, but it is a decent class, and great in the hands of a Min/Max-er.

Q59

Is there a way to add animal companion or mount abilities to a familiar, rather than the other way around (which Arcane Hierophant does)? I'm trying to see if there's anyway to pull an Ubermount-esque thing with feats and spells designed for familiars, but those probably don't apply to a Companion Familiar given the wording of the ability.
So you end up stuck in an endless loop, unable to act, forever.

In retrospect, much like Keanu Reeves.

A59: Way I see it, the familiar companion ability specifically excludes which Familiar abilities it doesn't get, not which ones it does.  So if you have a familiar companion and the Familiar Concentration feat, your Familiar Companion can concentrate on spells for you.

Q60: What things can you do with a familiar that has silent image at-will as an SLA?

Q61
Let's assume I'm a human Druid3 with Extend Spell.  I spontaneously convert a barkskin into an Extended summon nature's ally I.  How long does this spell normally take to cast?
Hood - My first answer to all your build questions; past, present, and future.

Speaking of which:
Don't even need TO for this.  Any decent Hood build, especially one with Celerity, one-rounds [Azathoth, the most powerful greater deity from d20 Cthulu].
Does it bug anyone else that we've reached the point where characters who can obliterate a greater deity in one round are considered "decent?"

The same it would normally would. Converting a spell doesn't change the time it takes to cast the converted spell.
Gendou Ikari is basically Gregory House in Kaminashades. This is FACT.

as normal:

The divine energy of the spell that the summon nature’s ally spell substitutes for is converted into the summon spell as if that spell had been prepared all along.

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.

Q62

Does a spell or acquired template exist which allows an Undead creature to gain a Constitution score or some other source of bonus HP that scales? If a spell, a Druid or Sorcerer needs to be able to persist it with no class features used (feats and other spells are fine).
So you end up stuck in an endless loop, unable to act, forever.

"corpsecrafter" from LM gives created undead +2 HP/HD (as well as a +4 str)

as for anything else ... I'm sure there's somebody who has something, but for me .. :shrug

Q63:
Are you considered to be "balancing" while standing in the area of a grease spell, or is it only when you are actually moving through the greased area?

There's a d20 feat that works just like Unholy Toughness where you can use your CHA mod in place of your CON for bonus hp. It's called Death's Blessing, and requires you to be undead with CHA 13+. It's in Tome of Horrors III.

I think while standing, since you're on a precarious surface.

In my humble opinion, CO is haberdashery. Some say we're mad, but we can all agree we're hatters. Yes, we have potential to make very sophisticated hats, very fancy hats, be they dark or light. But the truth is that the color of the hat does not come from the group of us - our community doesn't directly produce hats. We simply give average head circumferences, list current fashion trends, and point out some shiny, obscure baubles to add to the latest hat line.
